Transferring From Crossfit to Olympic Lifting

At Lift Lab, we have been lucky enough to work with a lot of Crossfitters that wanted to get a deeper taste of the sport of Weightlifting. Honestly, Crossfit gets somewhat of a bad reputation in the Weightlifting community, but there are a lot of benefits in having a background in Crossfit.


Today I want to discuss where Crossfitters tend to have some strengths that will help them in Weightlifting, and where some of their weaknesses tend to lie. Hopefully, if you are someone with a Crossfit background that wants to make the switch to Weightlifting, this will help you.


Disclaimer: I will use "Weightlifting and Olympic lifting here interchangeably, but I am talking about the same thing.


Strengths

So, what are some strengths that Crossfitters tend to have?
