Last night, I set a new personal record for the jerk: 205 lb. That's a 12.5-lb improvement or my previous best, which was performed in combination with the clean. Some of that gain is certainly due to omitting the energy-sapping clean; the rest is likely due to technique. In other words, I don't think I'm any stronger. Still, it's an improvement, and this new value is a skosh over 1.5 times bodyweight, so I'm quite pleased with it.
