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!
