Is Olympic Weightlifting Strength Training? "We know how to make athletes stronger. The lifts that are limited only by force production capacity – the squat, deadlift, press, and yes, even the bench press – must be programmed in a way that results in regular increases in weight on the bar. So, to make a stronger Olympic weightlifter, we must make a stronger squatter, presser, and deadlifter."—Mark Rippetoe, Starting Strength
