Austin Barbell is excited to host the USA Weightlifting combine series events in Austin on January 12th 2019. This testing event is one of the latest recruitment projects aiming to find weightlifting’s next Olympic hopeful. The Combine is open to athletes ages between the ages of 12 and 24. Each combine will include the following events
- 30m sprint
- Vertical jump
- Triple hop
- Power clean
- Back squat
The combine series is free to attend, and members of USA Weightlifting are encouraged to invite friends, family, and classmates!
