Miller is the head trainer at Carl and Sandra's Physical Conditioning Center, a gym in Santa Fe, New Mexico, where I've come for a 2-hour beginner lesson in Olympic-style weight lifting.It's not that I have any Olympian aspirations; I'm here because the Olympic lifts, as they're called, have no equal for developing speed, flexibility, and coordinated, total-body strength and muscle.During the pull, you explode upward, yanking the barbell off the floor and in front of your thighs, as if you were trying to jump out of the gym.In the catch, you quickly move your body under the bar and catch the weight on your shoulders or above your head.

(See "The Olympic workout," on the next page.) Incorporate them into your routine and you'll build muscle and strength, burn fat, and boost sports performance faster than ever before.Otherwise, you'll put yourself at risk of injury or, at the very least, perform them incorrectly.Which is, of course, why I've come to Miller's gym in the first place.Most simply, they engage nearly all of your muscles to move weights farther and faster than conventional exercises.In fact, each repetition takes only a second or two from start to finish, which allows you to target your fast-twitch muscle fibers.
