Olympic Weight Lifting

We don’t know about you, but we’ve been watching all the weight lifting we can handle from the Olympics. In case you haven’t been able to catch it on TV, we have linked some terrific clips highlighting some of the top performances so far. Take some time to appreciate how easy they make the lifts look, even though they have SO much weight on the bar. Caution, if you were hoping to be productive for the next hour, you might want to stay away from these clips. It gets addicting. 

The first three links are clean and jerk clips, while the last two are of the snatch.
