This raises our power output dramatically, and consequently our intensity. And as we know, INTENSITY IS WHERE THE RESULTS ARE. Additionally, Oly lifts build speed, coordination, agility, and balance; in short, athleticism. If you want the best results, do you think it makes sense to use the same movements that elite athletes use whenever possible? We do.
