Olympic weightlifting is comprised of two lifts; the Snatch and the Clean & Jerk. In the snatch, the barbell is lifted from the ground to overhead in one smooth movement. In the Clean & Jerk, the barbell is lifted from the floor to the shoulder and then overhead in a locked out position. These lifts test for explosive and functional strength, while taking the whole body through it maximum range of motion. The Olympic lifts are technical, dynamic and fast
