What are the Olympic Lifts?

When referring to Olympic weightlifting, it is in reference to two lifts: the snatch and the clean and jerk. The snatch involves moving a barbell from the ground to overhead in one fluid motion. In the clean and jerk, you move the bar from the floor to your shoulders, then from your shoulders to overhead, or jerk the barbell, to a fully locked out position.
