At Iron Legion, our weightlifting courses and training focus on Olympic-level lifts and technique. We reinforce core strength while giving you the support and knowledge you need to lift properly and safely as you achieve and shatter personal records.
Weightlifting official definition: a competitive sport that evaluates the strength and technique of an athlete by lifting weights.
Olympic Weightlifters are broken out into bodyweight categories and compete against one another based on two lift events – the clean and jerk and the snatch.
Powerlifters are also broken out into bodyweight categories with focus given to Back Squat, Deadlift and Bench Press.
Strongman also utilizes bodyweight categories but focus is given to unique odd object lifts – Log Press, Atlas Stones, Sled and Yoke work, Strength Medleys and much more.
In layman’s terms? Athletes learn how to control every component of their bodies through intense discipline to lift heavy amounts of weight in feats of superhuman strength.
At Iron Legion, you aren’t just one of many. We forge fierce and disciplined fighters. We work with every individual to help them reach their potential and leave the forge better than when they come to us. Our programs are tailored to the individual to optimize the mind, strengthen the immune system, and build a stronger body.
