Here at Victory Kid Barbell Club, we value safety, technique and community. In order to keep those values in place, there is etiquette that needs to followed.
First off, this is an overarching theme for Barbell Club and life in general, be aware of your surroundings. Below, are some basic rules to follow when you’re in Barbell Club:
- Don’t walk in front of other lifters, they have a line of sight for technique purposes, let them keep it.
- Don’t distract other lifters, wait to tell them how awesome they are after they lift.
- Don’t stand in front of lifters, that’s for their, and your, safety.
- Offer to change weights for lifting partner(s), communicate with your fellow lifters!
- Keep the platform clear during and after training for safety.
- Don’t slam the bar, really at all, ever.
- Pair plates to ensure even wear/bounce.
- Encourage someone attempting a PR or heavy lift.
- Weightlifting can be frustrating but, don’t have a tantrum/practice self-control.
Follow those rules and you’ll be well off in weightlifting. If you like this post, click the button below for more posts like it. And, feel free to come and try Victory Kid Barbell in person. If you’ve been following us, give us an honest review and a like on Facebook!

“Ideally, with this equipment we are using it once we get close to a competition or scheduled max out in order for us to get used to that gear and what it does to our body. We are trying to peak at the right time with our strength and have all aspects dialed in. ” -Coach Mike
I have tried many fun fitness activities over the years (after I finally got the motivation to get off the couch and cigarettes!)
“Better mobility in the squat and overhead position leads to safer and improved technique; and improved technique leads to heavier lifts.” -Coach Mike
I’ve trained for couple of half marathons, run, and I’d hit my goal. Post-race, I’d lose the spunk and go back to living my life.
I like to play— I could play almost any competitive group activity for hours. I think that’s one of the reasons I have enjoyed CrossFit so much.
My brain fog and sluggishness are now a thing of the past and I’m more fit than ever.
“People don’t care how much you know until they know how much you care. We make it a priority here at Victory Kid Barbell, and Friction CrossFit…” -Coach Mike
I am happy to have found CrossFit and even happier to have found Friction.
“The main things we look for in a jerk, specifically the split jerk, is balance.” – Coach Mike
Because of New You, I have found the confidence to get to the gym three or four times a week and put in real effort.
