What is Olympic Lifting?

Consists of The Snatch and Clean & Jerk Lifts. Uses full body range of motion. Goal is to lift max weight to improve explosive power.


Olympic Lifting

Place hands wide and use hook grip, into almost squat position, hips above knees, back flat, arms straight with arms rotated forward, shoulder blades locked together, shoulders in line with bar and knees.
Keep chest up and head looking forward, keeping spine in line.
