What is Olympic Weightlifting?

The Sport of Olympic Weightlifting is one of the world’s most misunderstood and under appreciated sports. Part of the first modern Olympic Games in 1896, Weightlifting is the only Olympic Sport in which heavy weights are used.

There are two recognized Weightlifting events, the “Snatch” and the “Clean and Jerk”. In the Snatch, the bar is pulled in one explosive motion from the floor to full arm’s length overhead. The combined attributes of great strength and blinding speed are needed to accomplish this challenging event effectively.

In the Clean and Jerk, the bar is also lifted to full arm’s length overhead. However, although it is considered one event, the Clean and Jerk is really two lifts that must be completed immediately after the other. In the clean, the bar is raised (pulled) in an explosive motion from the floor to a point of rest approximately at the level of the shoulders. The second part, the Jerk, consists of bending the legs and then extending both the arms and the legs to bring the bar to full arm’s length over the head in one explosive motion.

Why Olympic Weightlifting is important to general fitness, and athletic development.

Olympic Weightlifting is a safe and time efficient way to develop multiple athletic capacities within:

  1. cardiovascular/respiratory endurance
  2. stamina
  3. strength
  4. flexibility
  5. power
  6. speed
  7. agility
  8. balance
  9. coordination
  10. accuracy

Olympic Weightlifting consists of a “ground based” series of movements designed to create strength and power. This will carry over into any sport you’re currently participating in whether it be: Football, Soccer, Running, Baseball, Tennis, CrossFit, etc…
