Officially, the sport is called weightlifting. The sport of weightlifting consists of two lifts: the snatch and the clean & jerk. In the snatch, the weightlifter lifts the barbell from the floor to overhead in a single movement. In the clean & jerk, the weightlifter lifts the barbell first from the floor to the shoulders (the clean) and then from the shoulders to overhead (the jerk).
In a competition, each weightlifter has three attempts in the snatch and three attempts in the clean & jerk. The weight of the best of each lift is added to create the weightlifters total, and the best total wins.
The best way to learn the snatch and the clean & jerk is to work with a qualified weightlifting coach. At CrossFit Undeniable, our coaches have dedicated years to honing their skills at not only performing but seeing and correcting movement errors in their athletes. If you’ve struggled with your understanding and execution of these lifts, or if you simply want to refine your technique and spend more time under a barbell, our weightlifting cycle is perfect for you.
