Olympic lifts are a great way to work your entire body and promote fitness. These full-body movements target the shoulders, hips, knees, ankles while also helping you achieve flexibility in those joints as well! Control over this movement will help prevent future injuries, so it’s important that we strive for perfection with each rep at our own personal maxes or weight limits.
1. Easily transform your physique in a short period of time.
The snatch and clean& jerk are two of the most intense full body exercises out there. These movements work your legs, glutes, hamstrings and back muscles with an emphasis on abdominal muscles during lifting that last about one minute each! You’ll burn calories quickly in just 55 minutes. You can complete a full workout routine, including strength training sessions which help build muscle mass and decrease body fat while increasing overall physical fitness.
2. Get stronger and more powerful
The Olympic lifts are a key component for building power and speed. The Snatch, Clean & Jerk help produce the highest rates of power and speed in all sports-which makes them an essential workout to include when you want your athletes’ muscles strong from head to toe!
3. Work away from Injury by lifting properly.
Olympic lifting is a great way to train for sport and everyday activities. The full-body movements target your shoulders, hips, knees, ankles while also promoting flexibility in those joints as well, giving you greater stability across the board by controlling weight throughout each movement’s range of motion!
4. Improve Bone Density and muscle flexibility.
Olympic lifting is a great way to strengthen your bones and protect against osteoporosis. The large forces on the legs, spine or arms will stimulate new bone growth in those areas which can lead towards improved density of ligaments as well!
5. Trains your proprioception (Mind & Body connection)
The Olympic lifts are a series of full-body movements that require precise coordination, rhythm and timing. To improve your body awareness or if you want to become more coordinated for both sport performance as well everyday life activities, these could be great exercises!
6. Improve your overall athletic performance.
We all know that the Olympic lifts require an athlete to exert force into the ground through quick and coordinated “triple extension” of ankle, knee & hip. But what happens when you jump? Well, in order for your body to be able to use those same muscles as it would during a jump or sprinting – which are crucial components found within most sports- then this exercise has some serious benefits! Other than practicing said sport itself (which always helps), these two movements have next highest skill carryover rate directly improving strength levels with relation specifically to power output needed by certain athletes depending on whichever competition they’re competing against.
