We publish online content from articles to videos and photos to Olympic weightlifting training programs and the largest online weightlifting exercise library; books in print and digital format; video in DVD, downloadable and streaming format; a monthly journal; and produced the first feature-length documentary film on the sport of weightlifting in the US.
