American Continental Weight Lifters’ Association Notes – Strength Magazine – February, 1925

Since lifts are the foundation of a weight lifters’ association, and of most interest to its members, the first problem decided upon should be the selection of lifts and the number to contest in order to better decide the championship. The President directing our official affairs, wishes to point out that five lifts are the accepted total for contest, the same number lifted at the · Olympic Games this year in France, as well as for the German National Championship. The British Amateur Weight Lifting Association also has the same total, and has laid out a schedule of lifts for the next four years.
