What is Weightlifting?

Technically speaking, Olympic Weightlifting, otherwise known as ‘weightlifting’ or ‘Olympic-style weightlifting’ is a registered sport which incorporates the use of two independent lifts which require the athlete to lift a loaded barbell from the floor to an overhead position in an explosive manner. The two lifts, the ‘Clean & Jerk’ and the ‘Snatch’ are explosive movements as they require a combination of maximal strength and maximal speed.

The olympic lifts are the Snatch and the Clean and Jerk. Both movements are quite complex, displaying the most efficient way to move a load from the ground to over your head. The snatch is one un-inturupted movement pulling a weight from ground to overhead. The Clean and jerk is broken into 2 moves.
