Olympic weightlifters demonstrate strength, speed, power and execution. They are fit, but work tirelessly to perfect their technique so they can lift heavier weights and minimise the risk of injury. For the majority of people bodybuilding, they want to lift and train with more power and see tangible results from their training efforts. In the gym, there is no better athlete than the Olympic weightlifter.
Here are a few things that you can learn from Olympic weightlifters.
Make sure that your technique is flawless.
Look at any person that is new to the gym and the first thing you will see them do is try to lift heavy weights with poor technique. It’s the quickest way to gain an injury and to completely miss achieving your gym goals.
Instead, focus on executing the right movements that will allow you to lift heavier weights in motions that will allow you to lift with more speed and power. Even if you decide not to go for power, lifting in the right motions that will allow your body to break down the muscle is important.
It’s common for Olympic weightlifters to train with little or no weights so that they perfect their technique. Once their technique starts to feel like second nature, they add resistance weights and continue to build their power, strength and speed, whilst still holding their technical form.
