It is sad that these great movements hardly exist anymore in the training programs of the West. Those who are performing Olympic weightlifting still have a clear-cut advantage over other weightlifters. How often do you walk into a gym and you see somebody snatching, or clean and jerking a barbell? Not often, if ever. Many people are dragged into fearing these lifts because of the words of a few. Over time these lifts have been credited as being the most dangerous form of exercise in existence. What people don’t understand is this: exercises do not injure people, people injure people. It is an uneducated lifter’s poor form and inadequate warm-up that results in injuries. At BreakAway Sports Training, we teach the correct technique for Olympic weightlifting to ensure you build strength, without the risk of injury.
