How To Warm Up For Olympic Weightlifting With Greg Everett

This is the warm-up for Olympic weightlifting recommended by Greg Everett of Catalyst Athletics.

If cold and/or particularly sore or stiff, begin with 2-5 minutes of monostructural activity like rowing, cycling or jogging.

Follow this with a quick and light foam rolling series, shown here

Then run through this series of DROM drills before beginning your specific barbell warm-up for your first exercise. 10-15 reps (10-30 seconds x 1-3 sets for the 2 static exercises).
