Why is Olympic Lifting Such a Big Part of CrossFit?

(EXCERPT VIDEO) from an OlyOne Q&A With Coach Ryan

You might be aware of the Olympic Lifts, and you might know that they are found pretty often in CrossFit workouts.
But do you know why the Oly Lifts : Clean and Jerk and the Snatch are such a big part of CrossFit?

I asked Coach Ryan why he think that the Oly Lifts are such an important part of CrossFit.

He said, “I think CrossFit and Greg Glassman have realized that these fast lifts, these Olympic movements are critical to training people how to move well, and making them safe, more useful human beings.”

Coach Ryan continued, ”In Greg Glassman’s World Class Fitness in 100 Words, he says:

‘Practice the Snatch and the Clean and Jerk.’

“… These heavy lifts are really important for overall physical health and they’re going to bring you confidence and the ability to take your fitness outside of the gym.”
