Royal Navy Weightlifting

Weightlifting, also known as Olympic Weightlifting, consists of two competition lifts, the snatch and the clean and jerk.

The objective of the snatch is to have a wide-grip and lift the barbell from the ground to overhead in one continuous motion. There are four main styles of snatch used: squat snatch (or full snatch), split snatch, power snatch, and muscle snatch.

The clean and jerk, consists of two weightlifting movements. During the clean, the lifter moves the barbell from the floor to a racked position across the deltoids, without resting fully on the clavicles. During the jerk the lifter raises the barbell to a stationary position above the head, finishing with straight arms and legs, and the feet in the same place as the torso and barbell.
