POWERLIFTING AND OLYPMIC LIFTING

Powerlifting exercises can have many overall benefits for the body. It plays a very important role in strengthening your muscles, with much of the focus being on the legs, back, and upper body muscles. The intensity of exercises from powerlifting also burns a very high number of calories and can produce some significant long-term effects on your metabolism.

Athletes in many different sports use different styles of strength training such as powerlifting and Olympic-style weightlifting to move quicker, be faster, jump higher, and be able to output more energy longer while competing.

Our coaches are USPA certified and Signature Strength & Nutrition is a USPA partner gym.

POWERLIFTING VS. OLYMPIC-STYLE WEIGHTLIFTING

There are distinct differences between powerlifting and Olympic-style weightlifting. While powerlifting is less technical and focuses on the three rep counts of each lift, Olympic-style weightlifting uses overhead movements such as ‘the snatch’ and ‘the clean and jerk’ which are much more about technique and are done in a single lift. Both of these styles have their own pros and cons.

MUSCLE BUILDING

When it comes to muscle building, both Olympic-style weightlifting and powerlifting are usually reserved for more advanced athletes. These specific styles of strength training require more weight, but have less reps per set. Though it may seem like a good way to build muscle, it is not as effective as bodybuilding workouts, which require less weight with higher rep counts. The largest muscles in the body don’t always produce the most strength.
