Weightlifting has been included since the original Olympic Games and is a true test of strength, explosive power, mental fortitude and athleticism. The concept is simple, lift as much weight as you can over head in 2 technical movements - One called the Snatch and the other called the Clean & jerk. Due to the simplicity of the determining the winner of a competition, ie the one who lifts the most, weightlifting makes for an exciting spectator sport.
