Woman in Weightlifting
Our society has purported the myth that women who lift weights or do any form of strength training will transform a ladylike shape into that of a big, bulky bodybuilder. This is simply not the case, scientifically or anecdotally.
Men in Weightlifting
Performing a snatch or a clean and jerk is a full-body, fun, intense exercise working your legs, glutes, back, abs, shoulders and arms all at the same time. You burn a lot of calories during your workouts in a short amount of time. Olympic lifts are a great way to decrease body fat, build muscle, increase strength and maximize your time strength training.
Sports Specific Weightlifting
The Olympic lifts require an athlete to exert a force into the ground through a quick and coordinated “triple extension” of the ankle, knee, and hip, mirroring what happens in sprinting and jumping, the core components of most sports. Other than practicing the sport itself, Olympic lifts have the next highest carryover to directly improving sports performance in sports where strength, power, and speed are essential.

Weightlifting for FAT LOSS
Weight training allows our body to utilize its aerobic and anaerobic systems when done efficiently. This means we can burn calories from all energy stores when performing resistance training – carbs, sugars, and fats while still targeting muscle groups and putting on lean muscle mass.
Weightlifting for CONFIDENCE
Looking and feeling aesthetically better restores feelings of self-confidence and self-esteem, and this has a positive impact on our social health. Lifting weights also releases feel-good endorphins in our body and increases the level of serotonin, making us feel more alert and productive!
Weightlifting is for every age
Especially for women, strengthening bones is critical to prevent osteoporosis and protect against bone fractures. Olympic lifts produce large forces on the legs, spine, and arms, precisely what is needed to stimulate the body to lay down new bone and improve bone density.
Weightlifting is inspiring & fun
Being a part of the Cherokee Barbell has been great. I have received top notch coaching from coach Ayse. Thanks to her feedback and programming, I have definitely seen improvement in technique. It has allowed me to be much more consistent with my lifts. Having an online community for support is a big plus as well.”
