First, what is Olympic Weightlifting? Olympic weightlifting is comprised of two lifts; the Snatch and the Clean & Jerk. In the snatch, a barbell is lifted from the ground to overhead in one smooth movement. In the Clean & Jerk, a barbell is lifted from the floor to the shoulder and then overhead in a locked out position. These lifts test for explosive and functional strength, while taking the whole body through it maximum range of motion. During these lifts the body is working as a whole, the body is not separated into parts and pieces. The Olympic lifts are inherently technical, dynamic and fast.
Anyone who has spent any amount of time playing sports or training for fitness will tell you about the power of massage. For those of you doing CrossFit, you play harder than most, so it makes sense that massage should be a part of your recovery routine.
