Weightlifting: More Than Just a Sport

Since the Beginning

Man has always had a fascination for measuring the strength of an individual. In numerous prehistoric tribes, men lifted big, special rocks - "manhood" stones they called. The bigger the rock, the manlier and stronger the man. To this day, these stones could still be found in countries like Greece and Scotland, with the initials of the lifter incised on the surface. Similarly, in China's Zhou Dynasty, which was from the 10th century B.C. until 256 B.C., newly recruited soldiers were tested with various weightlifting activities so as to measure their physique before being accepted in the military. Likewise, Ancient Egyptians had a form of this activity as well. Artifacts depicted that they would fill bags with sand and carry them around as a form of physical training. These examples just prove that lifting weights was just a natural phenomenon in different parts of the globe. As time went on, the activity got more and more developed and people made up new techniques and different forms of weights, and eventually, weightlifting became an international sport early in the 19th century. It was even featured at the 1896 Athens Games. Of course, the equipment we see and use in the gym today was similar but a little different back then. In fact, the earliest form of the dumbbell we are all familiar with today was called the "halteres", and its history could be traced back to as far as the 2nd century Greece. In contrast, the barbell is a fairly new invention, as it only joined the dumbbell in the latter half of the 19th century. The modern revolving sleeve standardized Olympic barbell started back in 1905 when Franz Velrum began selling the world's first plate loading barbell, and in 1928, Kasper Berg made the first modern Olympic barbell. The "Berg Barbell" was the official barbell used in the 1928 Amsterdam Olympics, and with the popularity and the success of it, other manufacturers and companies began copying and standardizing the design. In the modern era, the Olympic Weightlifting Barbell is the standard, with its 2.2 meters (7 foot) long bar and 20 kilograms (44 lbs) weight. Who would have thought that the simple act of lifting a heavy object would become what it is today? Back then, people strengthened their bodies by only using big stones and sandbags, but now we have big companies manufacturing barbells and dumbbells made of cast iron or stainless steel, with precise dimensions and weights. This just goes to show that we really have come a long way. The equipment and methods may have changed drastically, but the interest of people to strengthen their bodies or improve their physique remains the same. What's even better is that weightlifting is not just about building muscle, attaining the desired body shape, or winning competitions. Studies show that lifting weights as a form of regular exercise has great benefits to health as well, such as improving posture, better sleep, strengthening the bones, weight loss, boosting metabolism, preventing injuries, improving cardio, and lowering blood pressure, among many others. In addition, sticking to a weightlifting routine and seeing results, no matter how big or small, greatly boosts our self-esteem, confidence, and our discipline inside and outside of the gym. Whether you can lift 5 or 500 pounds, weightlifting has many benefits for everyone. It has proved so since ancient times, and it will continue to do so in the centuries to come.


When it Comes to Lifting Weights

People have a lot of options to choose from. The equipment they use will first depend on their goals, their training routine, and of course their budget. The equipment they buy will greatly depend on their environment as well. Is it going to be a small home gym in their basement with limited space for personal use, or is it gonna be a big public gym for commercial use? These factors could definitely be intimidating especially for the amateurs, but luckily there are numerous brands that are notable and stood the test of time when it comes to equipment. One of the best brands for barbells is Rogue. Rogue produces and manufactures the "Rogue Olympic WL Bar" which is the bar used for the CrossFit Games and is built according to the International Weightlifting Federation specifications. This beastly equipment measures 7ft long weighs 20kg and has a diameter of 28mm. This bar is built to last and withstand up to 1,500lbs of weights. Rogue lists this bar on their website for a price of $495.00. Understandably, not everyone has 500 bucks to spend on a bar, especially those just starting out in weightlifting. Luckily, there are also good brands that sell budget-friendly options, one of which is a company called Body-Solid. Body-Solid has various versions of the Olympic bar as well, and their most affordable one only costs $170.00, which is definitely a fraction of the price of the Rogue bar. The only downside to this bar is that it can only handle up to 600lbs of weight and is less durable, but that's perfectly fine especially for beginners. Most people call this bar their "beater" bar. As for other weight lifting accessories, one of the best brands is CAP Barbell. They are one of the best selling brands when it comes to plates, dumbbells, kettlebells, and home gym sets. If you are not into competitive weightlifting and just want to train at home, then CAP Barbell has everything you need to start. Other notable brands are Troy Barbell, Lifetime, Everlast, Gold's Gym, and Bodycraft. All of these brands have similar and standardized products, they just differ in materials, aesthetics, and pricing, so no matter what product you choose, you can make it work. It could be very stressful to buy weight equipment at first, but you should realize that a 500 dollar barbell is no better than a 100 dollar one if you don't use it. For newbies, it would be best to just buy the equipment that suits your budget with one of the brands above and start lifting.
