Kilograms and Pounds! Yes, we're fans of using kilograms over pounds, so let's save the "one is better than the other" argument in the comments below! 🤔 This simple chart is for those who want a quick visual for lower weight conversions. If you want to do math in your head, then there are a couple ways to do so for kg & lb conversions. NOTE: 1 Kilogram = 2.20462 lbs From LBS ➡️ KG conversions The simplest way is to DIVIDE your lb weight by 2.2. Keep in mind, that's the abbreviated way of doing so. From KG ➡️ LBS conversions METHOD 1: Take pound weight and multiply by 2.2. METHOD 2: Multiple your kg weight by 2, then add 10% of that onto the end. Example below Step 1: 100kg x 2 = 200 lbs. Step 2: 10% of 200 lbs = 20 lbs. Step 3: 200 lbs + 20 lbs = 220 lbs or 100kg at BarBend

Whenever we need a pick me up, we watch this video of one of our favorite weightlifting 🏋🏼‍♂️🏋🏻‍♀️ moments on repeat. Tag a friend who needs a pick me up! Original post: " #weightliftingcelebration Matthias Steiner clean and jerking a huge PR of 258kg to win the Beijing Olympics. After losing his wife in a car crash almost exactly a year prior to competing, Steiner recalled that he had previously told his wife that he would win the Olympics. With her gone, and left with the motivation to do what he told her, he hit a huge PR, clean and jerking 8 kilos more than the Russian Chigishev for the gold. In a huge release of emotion, Steiner breaks down, filled with sheer joy and utter sadness. It is amazing what emotion can do. This is one of the great moments of our sport. In Steiner we trust!
