MetCon is Short for metabolic conditioning, MetCon describes a type of workout that most commonly combines strength and cardio conditioning, as well as both anaerobic and aerobic exercises. You’ll use each system at different points of the workout based on its length and intensity.
MetCon workouts are intense — and while HIIT workouts are made up of primarily cardio- and bodyweight-based exercises (Think: sprints, burpees and mountain climbers) — other types of MetCon workouts typically incorporate weighted exercises like dumbbell squats and chest presses for greater anaerobic and strength
Olympic weightlifting, or Olympic-style weightlifting (officially named Weightlifting), is a sport in which athletes compete in lifting a barbell loaded with weight plates from the ground to overhead, with each athlete vying to successfully lift the heaviest weights.
Athletes compete in two specific ways of lifting the barbell overhead: these are the snatch and the clean and jerk. The snatch is a wide-grip lift, in which the weighted barbell is lifted overhead in one motion. The clean and jerk is a combination lift, in which the weight is first taken from the ground to the front of the shoulders (the clean), and then from the shoulders to overhead (the jerk). The clean and press, wherein a clean was followed by an overhead press, was formerly also a competition lift, but was discontinued due to difficulties in judging proper form.
