With the increasing popularity of Crossfit has come a renewed interest in the sport of weightlifting. It is a safe and efficient way of developing strength, power and flexibility. As well as being good fun as a discipline in itself, the explosiveness it brings transfers over well to other sports.
Fundamentally, there are only two lifts to learn – the snatch and the clean and jerk – but these are deceptively technical. When done correctly, they are remarkably safe, but they can be dangerous if performed badly. Rather than trying to learn off YouTube, let our BWL-accredited coach Guy Lochhead teach you the key positions and how to move between them, as well as the assistance work you should do to fix your specific errors and feel the full benefits of these amazing lifts.
