THE SNATCH & THE CLEAN
Olympic Weightlifting, otherwise known as ‘weightlifting’ or ‘Olympic-style weightlifting’ is a technique used in CrossFit which incorporates the use of two independent lifts which require the athlete to lift a loaded barbell from the floor to an overhead position in an explosive manner.
The two lifts, the ‘Clean’ and the ‘Snatch’ are explosive movements as they require a combination of maximal strength and maximal speed.
