Olympic Weightlifting
WEIGHTLIFTING, also called OLYMPIC-STYLE WEIGHTLIFTING , or OLYMPIC WEIGHTLIFTING, is an athletic discipline in the modern Olympic programme in which the athlete attempts a maximum-weight single lift of a barbell loaded with weight plates. The two competition lifts in order are the snatch and the clean and jerk . Each weightlifter receives three attempts in each, and the combined total of the highest two successful lifts determines the overall result within a bodyweight category. Bodyweight categories are different for male and female competitors. A lifter who fails to complete at least one successful snatch and one successful clean and jerk also fails to total, and therefore receives an "incomplete" entry for the competition. The clean and press was once a competition lift, but was discontinued due to difficulties in judging proper form

CONTENTS * 1 Movement * 2 Equipment * 3 Variations * 4 See also * 5 References MOVEMENTTHE OVERHEAD PRESS is set up by taking a barbell or other weight and putting it in racking position. This can be done by taking the weight from a rack or by cleaning the weight from the floor (clean and press ). The weight is then pressed to overhead until the elbows are fully locked out. As the weight clears the head, the lifter leans forward slightly, or comes directly under, in order to keep balance. As the weight is lowered back to racking position and clears the head again, the lifter leans slightly back. The overhead press is a highly effective compound upper-body exercise
