Why We Lift!

The importance of olympic weightlifting in CrossFit:

"The mere practice of the Olympic lifts teaches an athlete how to apply large amounts of force. Part of the extraordinary abilities of an Olympic lifter arises out of his having learned how to effectively activate more of his muscle fibers more rapidly than others who aren’t trained to do so. This becomes extremely important for athletes who need to remain at lower body weights for athletic purposes but need to learn how to apply greater force."—Artie Dreschler

CrossFit trains “Ten Physical Skills.” Accuracy, Agility, Balance, Coordination, Cardio Respiratory Endurance, Flexibility, Speed, Stamina, Power, Strength. This means we train you to be better and fitter ALL AROUND. Your fitness level increases across all physical skills, not just a select few.

The olympic lifts are the most effective movements to train all 10 physical skills!
