Weightlifting

Weightlifting, or Olympic Weightlifting is a technical, strength/power sport which requires excellent coordination, flexibility, balance, speed and of course strength. Often confused with general lifting of weights, this discipline carries its own techniques which when practiced correctly can bring many benefits to the athlete such as decreasing body fat, build muscles full-body, increase your overall strength and reduce injury.

We have created and manage the Victoria Weightlifting Club. Find out more.
