Shortly after Thanksgiving, the World Championships of weightlifting began in Anaheim California. Inspired by the broken world records and inspiring lifts that happened during the week long competition, CrossFit Beloit has decided to hold our very in-house weightlifting meet.
Rest assured, there will be no weigh ins or singlets necessary though if you have one and would like to, feel free! Since there are lots of rules and nuances to the sport of Weightlifting, we are inviting anyone that would be interested in participating to come to our informational session on January 3, 2018 at 11:30. During this informational session we will go over the lifts, talk about judging standards, and answer any other questions that you may have. You do not have to attend the informational session to participate.
We will also watch some lifting in competition to give everyone a feel for what it is like. If you decide to participate we will be offering lifting templates for you to do weightlifting specific training during open gym. The actual weightlifting meet will be held a month after the informational session on February 10th. Sign up for the meet will be at the gym. Once we get an idea of how many people are interested, we will get out more details.
