Let's lift HEAVY!

“There are two Olympic lifts, the Clean & Jerk and the Snatch
. Mastery of these lifts develops the squat, deadlift, power clean, and
split jerk while integrating them into a single movement of unequaled
value in all of strength and conditioning. The Olympic lifters are
without a doubt the world’s strongest athletes.

These lifts train athletes to effectively activate more
muscle fibers more rapidly than through any other modality of training.
The explosiveness that results from this training is of vital necessity
to every sport. Practicing the Olympic lifts teaches one to apply force
to muscle groups in proper sequence, i.e., from the center of the body
to its extremities (core to extremity). Learning this vital technical
lesson benefits all athletes who need to impart force to another person
or object as is commonly required in nearly all sports.
In addition to learning to impart explosive forces, the clean and jerk
and snatch condition the body to receive such forces from another moving body both safely and effectively.

Numerous studies have demonstrated the Olympic lifts' unique
capacity to develop strength, muscle, power, speed, coordination,
vertical leap, muscular endurance, bone strength, and the physical
capacity to withstand stress. It is also worth mentioning that the
Olympic lifts are the only lifts shown to increase maximum oxygen
uptake, the most important marker for cardiovascular fitness.

Sadly, the Olympic lifts are seldom seen in the commercial
fitness community because of their inherently complex and technical
nature. CrossFit makes them available to anyone with the patience and
persistence to learn.”
