The benefits of competing in the sport of weightlifting: Part One

“A long time ago in a training facility far, far away….”

That’s right, we said it. You heard it. You’ve probably watched it. The rumors are true. We’re producing a special Five Episode Web Series leading up to our 2018 Winter Weightlifting Classic on Saturday, February 17.

Coaches Chris and Brian are putting together five (that’s right, count it…one, two, three, four…. fiiifth) videos leading up to the event. This week we bring you a “Beginner’s Guide to Competing” if you will. Chock full of color commentary and a light dash of science and psychology. So, pop your popcorn, make sure your smartphone is charged. Make sure you’re following us on Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram, and subscribed to our YouTube Channel because it’s about to get serious…. seriously, wild.

We can promise you our series will be equal parts fun, informative, and engaging, and backed by science. We have created this pie-chart as proof:

So if you haven’t checked out our most recent video on why you should compete…no scratch that, think of it more as a video confirming your decision to compete, then fix your lookin’ balls on the video at the bottom of this post.

On a more serious note, please download the related supplementary material each week. This week’s material is  “A Complete Beginner’s Guide to Competing in Weightlifting” packed with information on: how to register for an event, weight classes, a link to a downloadable version of the International Weightlifting Federation (IWF) handbook, and links to our very own Athletic Weightlifting Team.

Enjoy and we’ll see you in a week!
