What is Olympic weightlifting?


Olympic weightlifting (or weightlifting) is an athletic discipline in the modern Olympic programme in which the athlete attempts a maximum-weight single lift of a barbell loaded with weight plates. The two competition lifts in order are the snatch and the clean and jerk, with three attempts at each. Weightlifting has enjoyed a massive growth in popularity due to its inclusion in the CrossFit methodology. CrossFit programming regularly includes both the snatch and the clean and jerk.

"Olympic weightlifting is one of the fastest-growing sports in the world, with endless benefits to your overall training.”

Olympic weightlifting can be a hard skill to learn, but is unbelievably rewarding and invaluable for your overall health and fitness, as well as your development in CrossFit.
