Why the focus on Olympic Lifting? In CrossFit we strive for a balance in the 10 general physical skills: strength, stamina, flexibility, endurance, power, speed, coordination, balance, agility, and accuracy. Olympic weightlifting is simply unmatched in its ability to train a wide range of these skills at the same time. Work on and improve your Oly Lifting and you’ll probably see gains and improvements across the board with all the other movements of CrossFit as well.
