Weightlifting is one of nine sports of the 1896’s Olympic Games in Athens. This is the sport of explosive strength par excellence.

To be successful, the lifter must develop its strength but not only. Speed, flexibility and coordination are equally important.

It must also acquire a very high accuracy in the execution of the two Olympic lifts, the snatch and the clean and jerk.

Each member has the possibility to compete in various competitions organized by the French Federation of Weightlifting - Weight Training (FFHM) to which the society is affiliated.

The society puts at the disposal of the athletes the specific equipment in this discipline: Olympic barbell for man / woman, bumper plates, platform, etc.
