Welcome to the Friday Flicks! Every Friday we kick off your weekend with a fun, fitness-related video you've never seen before. If you've missed previous weeks, you can catch up on them HERE!


This week, watch a clip from the upcoming American Weightlifting Olympic lifting documentary. This feature length film is produced, filmed, edited, written, and directed by weightlifting supremo Greg Everett. The film centers on the challenges faced by those involved in American weightlifting to develop themselves and the sport with little support or funding.


In this clip, learn about how Mike Burgener set up Mike's Gym in his garage while working as a teacher, using money from coaching and speaking to buy bars and bumper plates.


Keep an eye on the American Weighlifting film's website for additional preview clips, along with further information on theater and DVD release dates. You can also keep up to date with new information on the Facebook page.
