What is weightlifting?

“Weightlifting, Olympic weightlifting”

Weightlifting is a form of sport in which the athlete tries to use two hands to lift the heaviest plate weight bar up straight arms. In the sport, lifts are done with two different techniques – snatch and clean and jerk. The winner is the one with the highest total score. Weightlifting has been practiced since the 19th century and it is an Olympic sport.


There are two main movements in weightlifting – snatch and clean and jerk. In the exercises, of course, we train versatilely, supporting these two main movements. What is important in this sport is technique, whole body strength and balance.
