Colorado LWC Facebook Page

Thanks to Lindsey Hedrick Lee and Kim Pinske for setting up the Colorado LWC Facebook page. Quoting from the page "This is the Facebook page for Colorado Weightlifting where we hope you will be able to find and share information, share pictures and videos, and communicate with other people in the CO weightlifting community." For the time being, this blog and the Facebook page will mirror information to keep those who don't do Facebook in the loop. And, perhaps with more exposure via FB the blog will become a more important outlet for our members to communicate and share items too cumbersome for a FB status. As always article and event information can be e-mailed to me at

Meet Prep Clinic

Flatirons Crossfit Weight Room
Sunday July 15th, 9am - 12 Noon
$100 tuition
(FCFSC and FWLC members get discount, see Randy!)

This clinic is designed to help you successfully plan for your next (or first!) weightlifting competition. We will go over what you will need to bring for a weightlifting meet, how to work with your coach to plan and execute your warmups and attempts. We will also go over the basic competition rules, procedures and practices that you should be familiar with.

This is not a beginners weightlifting class. It is a hands on, practical event so bring your lifting shoes. We will spend the bulk of our time lifting, coaching technique and working up to your planned opening attempts for a weightlifting meet. This is a great clinic to get some final preparation in for the Rocky Mtn State Games Weightlifting Meet July 28th in Colorado Springs.

This clinic is limited to 12 participants.
