With over 20 years of Olympic Weightlifting experience, I’m used to the sport being relatively misunderstood. Most often it’s confused with powerlifting, bodybuilding or other forms of weight training. To this day, the sport and movements are still somewhat misinterpreted. That said, it’s critical to learn more about the movements given the recent expansions into Oly Lifting by several fitness industries, specifically CrossFit and sports performance. The number of participants has grown the popularity of Olympic Weightlifting exponentially over the last decade. It’s now my pleasure to share my love for the sport to new people every day.
