Olympic weightlifting is clearly one of the greatest displays of physical performance.
"There is literally no other sport that challenges your strength, skill, and mental powers more fully than weightlifting." ~Arthur DrechslerThere's such power in explosively lifting heavy weights overhead. I've always been impressed with the athleticism, explosive strength, and dynamic mobility that's required to perform the Olympic Lifts. I believe that the Olympic lifts (snatches, clean and jerks) are really the pinnacle of strength and performance training. As I write this, I'm still sore. That's because I just finished an outstanding Olympic weightlifting seminar led by Coach Greg Everett of Catalyst Athletics.
