In CrossFit conditioning workouts, where maximum work is valued over absolute loading, it’s important to utilize technique that allows for that. Sometimes that means you have to change up traditional technique to complete the work goal.

In a CrossFit conditioning workout, the most efficient way to satisfy the standard (“ground-to-shoulder-to-overhead”) is to bypass the rest at the shoulders by launching straight into the jerk from the receiving position of the clean.
