Video: Olympic Weightlifting for Sports?

✭✭✭✭✭ John Cortese, owner of CTS Strength & Conditioning in Napa, CA answers this question related to olympic-style weightlifting for athletes. Our short answer: YES, athletes SHOULD (if they are healthy and can learn the positions properly and ideally have a coach) utilize the lifts if they are able to and have access to the right atmosphere. The lifts and their variations have a great carry over to athletics and teach the body to work as one unit as explosively as possible.
