The world record for weightlifting is the highest weight that has been lifted in a particular category. The categories are: men’s 56 kg, men’s 62 kg, men’s 69 kg, men’s 77 kg, men’s 85 kg, men’s 94 kg, and men’s 105kg. In each category, there are three types of records: the snatch, the clean and jerk, and the total.
The snatch is a single motion lift where the barbell is brought from the ground to overhead in one continuous movement. The clean and jerk is a two-part lift where the barbell is first brought to the shoulders (the clean) and then jerked overhead (the jerk). The total is the combined weights of both the snatch and clean and jerk.
The current world record holders in each category are as follows: Men’s 56kg – Lü Xiaojun (China) with a total of 327kg Men’s 62kg – Om Yun Chol (North Korea) with a total of 338kg
Men’s 69kg – Chen Lijun (China) with a total of 353kg Men’s 77kg – Lyu Xiaojun (China) with a 373kg total Men’s 85kg – Tian Tao (China) with a 392kg total
