Olympic Weightlifting epitomizes the human desire to seek out challenges, to attempt to do what is seemingly impossible, and to succeed.
At the highest level, Olympic Weightlifting is very much a contest between an athlete and his or her belief in themselves. It is a pure test of flesh and blood, against iron and gravity. The two competition lifts are the snatch and the clean and the jerk.
In comparison with other strength sports, (which test limit strength with or without lifting aids), Olympic Weightlifting tests aspects of human ballistic limits (explosive strength), and are therefore executed faster and with more mobility and a greater range of motion during their execution than other lifts.
Properly executed Olympic lifts, the snatch and the clean and jerk, are dynamic and explosive, while appearing graceful (especially when viewed from a recording at a slow speed). While there are relatively few competitive Olympic lifts, the lifts and their components are commonly used by elite athletes in other sports to train for both explosive and functional strength.
