USAWlogoThe two competition lifts are the snatch and the clean and jerk. 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, the snatch and the clean and jerk are both dynamic and explosive while appearing graceful.

SICFIT Scottsdale’s Barbell Club is designed to help you get comfortable under the bar. We will focus on the technique, form and associated lifts that will have you throwing more weight around than you ever thought possible.
