There are 5 weightlifters that a Victory Kid athlete should know. These weightlifters are in no particular order and they are chosen for differences in technique as well as accessibility on the internet.
A good combination of learning comes from watching weightlifters who lift well (they need a strong social media presence and a lot of content on YouTube) and studying the resources that are in good standing with the sport (think USAW and some CrossFit Specialty Courses).
In no particular order:
- Clarence Kennedy.
2. Pyrros Dimas
3. Lu Xiaojun
4. Mattie Rogers
5. Colin Burns
These are the weightlifters I have learned from over the few years that I have been coaching and weightlifting. They have been incredibly influential not only by their technique, but their dedication and passion for the sport of weightlifting.
I encourage you to look into these athletes yourself to see how lifts most like you and how their prowess can benefit you.
As always, give us an honest review and a like on Facebook and don’t hesitate to come in and try us out!

In May, my husband talked me into doing Murph at Friction on Memorial Day. To say that I was nervous was an understatement.
“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
When I saw the challenge on Facebook I knew it was exactly what I needed.
I am even more grateful for all the tom-foolery, shennanigans, giggles, and gains that I experience with my FricFam.
“Last week was max out week, for everyone. CrossFit and Victory Kid both had max outs all week. PR’s were set every day and it was a hell of week. “
“My story from Friction takes a turn….”
