Studies show that Olympic weightlifting has the lowest injury rate of any organized sport! This is due to close supervision and proper coaching.
"I used to power snatch an ugly 135 (lbs), and never squat snatched more than 105. After a ten week cycle at SSW, I'm hitting a 147 squat snatch regularly.....that's a 42 lb increase in only TEN weeks!"
