Our genetic makeup determines our appearance (the colour of our hair and eyes, if we are tall or short) and how we respond to different external factors (nutrients, physical activities, medications). Our DNA can explain how we metabolize certain substances and how our body can lose and gain weight.
Any type of training with an external resistance/load, aimed to develop various types of strength (maximal strength, strength endurance, explosive strength…) or to “build” muscle tissue.

An Olympic sport event, where the athletes lift the loaded barbell from the ground to overhead in two lifting styles: Clean and Jerk technique and Snatch. The aim is to lift the highest weight possible. In CROSSFIT and in sport specific training those two lifting styles and their components (clean, jerk, hang clean, power snatch) are used for power development.
