Mississippi Barbell

The Source for Weightlifting in Mississippi

Mississippi Barbell, formerly known as Mississippi Weightlifting Club, is a strength sport nonprofit for the state. It was the first USA Weightlifting sanctioned Club in the State and remains the largest. We are located in the metro Jackson, MS area. The organization trains and promotes Olympic weightlifting and powerlifting.  We serve as a resource for anyone looking to compete in meets and for anyone who wants to improve their lifts for sports performance. We are open to all levels of lifters from any walk of life, at any age, who want to become better athletes and have fun along the way. We want to sharpen ourselves and all interested Mississippi athletes competitively. In order to be the best, you have to train with the best. And that is exactly what Mississippi Barbell aims to be.

We are located within Reservoir Crossfit at 131 Builders Square, Brandon, MS.
