Olympic Weightlifting | CrossFit Coolhaven

Olympic Weightlifting

Olympic weightlifting is a strength training where a heavy object in one go (or with a brief stop at the shoulders) gets lifted above our heads. We use barbells with weights which we either pull (“snatch”) or push (“clean & jerk”). Olympic weightlifting is a very technical part of CrossFit and will improve your overall fitness and strength dramatically. You won’t only notice this during your CrossFit training  but also when practicing others sports you’ll find that you have become more explosive, flexible, fast, and your coordination has improved.
