Olympic Lift Types: The Olympic Press

CLEAN AND JERK LIFT


by Paul Anderson

MULTIMEDIA DEMOS

The press required the lifter to bring the bar to his shoulders, wait two seconds for the judges' approval and then lift the bar overhead using only the arms.

The press was discontinued following the 1972 Olympics.
