What is the Barbell Club?

For over seven years, we’ve been downtown Philadelphia’s home for barbell specific training in both the Olympic Lifts and Powerlifting. Not familiar with those terms?

The Olympic Lifts are the snatch and the clean and jerk used in Olympic weightlifting competitions. They’re arguably the best test of strength and technique in any form of athletics. But you don’t need to have aspirations to go to the Olympics do to them. (But if you do want to compete, we have a coach on staff who competes for Team USA at the national and international levels!)

The Power lifts are the back squat, bench press and deadlift. These movements are staple building blocks to any strength program or sport specific work. Training them is a terrific compliment to running, cycling or other sports where you spend time outside the gym.

We cater to the first-time athlete as well as those with competitive aspirations for either barbell program. Contact us to schedule a consult today!
