Your Weightlifting Training Program

Olympic Weightlifting training programs are designed for athletes who compete to lift the greatest amount of weight overhead within an athlete’s weight category. The competition lifts are the Snatch and the Clean & Jerk. Athletes also can use Olympic weightlifting as part of their other sports conditioning program to develop explosive speed strength, or power.
