Olympic weightlifting is as much about strength as it is about timing, coordination, balance, accuracy, speed, and technique, and watching others helps your mind conceive of exactly what it’s supposed to do, and what the lifts are supposed to look like. After working training Olympic lifts for years, when I watch a video like this, I’m both inspired by and amazed at at what these athletes are capable of doing!
Spend some time with this video below… and if you’ve got a favorite online Olympic weightlifting video, please share it with us by posting a link to it in comments!
