Weightlifting For The Non-Competitor
By Donny Shankle

Great competition breeds uncommon results.

As a competitive weightlifter I encourage everyone interested in weightlifting to compete. The competition will improve your performance in training. If you have had difficulty breaking through barriers in training and haven’t PR’d in an while, try competing in front of an audience. The competitiveness and the chance to showcase your hard work will push you to improve. No one wants to look like a fool in front of a crowd. By competing regularly, you will push training to a different level and work even harder than what you may have thought possible.
