Most people say they perform the Olympic lifts because they're "explosive." The truth is that any lift can be explosive!

That's earth-shaking news. People perform the Olympic lifts because they ARE an EXPLOSIVE MOVEMENT! How could you perform them in a non-explosive fashion? Ever try doing a hang clean slowly? Some lifts can be performed in an fast or "explosive" fashion but not all exercises.
