Weightlifting Melbourne

The Victorian Weightlifting Association is the controlling and sanctioning body for Weightlifting in Victoria, Australia.

It is governed by the rules of the world controlling body, the International Weightlifting Federation, and the national controlling body, the Australian Weightlifting Federation.

Weightlifting, commonly referred to as lifting, is a sport in which competitors attempt to lift heavy weights mounted on steel bars called barbells, the execution of which is a combination of power, flexibility, technique, mental and physical strength.

The term "weightlifting"is often informally used to refer to weight training. Olympic weightlifting trains the athlete for functional strength, utilizing the body's major muscle groups. For this reason, the Olympic lifts (or simplified versions such as the Power Snatch and Power Clean) are extensively used in training for other sports such as American Football.
