Weightlifting is an Olympic sport that consists in lifting the maximum weight from the ground to the top of the head with the arms extended. The discipline has two modalities: Snatch and Clean & Jerk.

This sport requires and develops physical abilities such as strength, speed, flexibility or agility, at the same time that it requires key personal skills: attention, concentration or strategy in the competition.

Because it is a complete training, weightlifting has become the basis of the physical preparation of most elite athletes and should be part of the training programs of any athlete.
