Overview

"If [an] athlete is serious about getting considerably stronger, he needs to incorporate at least oneĀ explosive exercise into his routine. And more is even better." - Bill Starr

The barbell lifts include both power lifting and olympic lifting and greatly emphasize the strength, power, and speed aspects (among others) of CrossFit's ten general physical skills. Ā Proven competency in each of these lifts is a good indication of overall strength and explosiveness.
