What is Olympic Weightlifting and Why Should You Try It?
Olympic weightlifting has the aim of lifting as heavy as possible, using one of two moves – the snatch and the clean and jerk. In competition, barbells loaded with plates are lifted – once – to demonstrate strength and control. All about explosive strength, Olympic weightlifting is an exercise regimen that also develops functional strength, too.
In terms of changing your fitness, performing snatches and clean and jerks is said to burn a lot of calories in a small amount of time, and works the legs, back, glutes, shoulders, arms, and abs – all at the same time. Increased coordination, improved range of motion and even better bone density all come from strength workouts.
If you are looking for a great way to get into Olympic weightlifting, then you can shop for Olympic-style weights online from NC Fitness Gear. We have a range of options available, from barbells to weight plates – all up to Olympic standards and made from the best durable and reliable materials.
Our barbells come in weight brackets of 10kg, 15kg and 20kg and a range of finishes. You can choose from:
- Hard Chrome
- Bright Hard Chrome
- Black Zinc
- Black Hard Chrome
We even have a Children’s bar available that weighs 3kg and has bright red sleeves, for the young weightlifter in your life.
Olympic weight plates have a standard size centre hole (51mm), and ours are rubber coated to make them more durable and help to protect not only the life of the plate but also the floor of your weight training area (although we do suggest snatches and clean and jerks are performed on shock-absorbing rubber flooring for safety). You can choose what weights you want when you shop for Olympic weights – we sell them in pairs from 1.25kg right up to 25kg.
Remember that Olympic barbells and weights are built differently from standard bars and weights – built to take much more weight, to really push you hard when you are lifting.
