Considering that fighting's based on weight class, you can see how getting the most bang for your buck is useful.
Examples of Olympic lifts:
Clean and Jerk, Snatch, Power Clean, Hang Snatch, etc.
Agreed, some lifts I do very fast with reps of 20-40. Tried heavy again for a few weeks. Felt stronger of course but slower and tighter. Could just be me though. If I can do 12-15 wide grip chins (palms out). Is it time to strap some weight on my waist? I just get mass very easy now.. Feel like it is not worth the strength gains to do low reps. 8-12 if terrible for a fighter for sure though.
