Overview

"If [an] athlete is serious about getting considerably stronger, he needs to incorporate at least one explosive exercise into his routine. And more is even better." - Bill Starr

The barbell lifts include both power lifting and olympic lifting and greatly emphasize the strength, power, and speed aspects (among others) of CrossFit's ten general physical skills.  Proven competency in each of these lifts is a good indication of overall strength and explosiveness.
