WEIGHTLIFTING:  The Ultimate Sport

As a sport, weightlifting has existed for a number of years and has been part of the Olympic Games since 1896.  Weightlifting is called the “ultimate sport” because it encompasses all the attributes required of the “ultimate athlete” – strength, power, speed, technique, balance and flexibility.  “Weightlifting:  The Ultimate Sport” explains how to train for the Olympic lifts – the snatch and clean & jerk.  This DVD is designed as the perfect source for individuals who want to get started as a participant in weightlifting meets (and for the new coach, as well!)
