Traditional runners have soft midsoles that absorb force, robbing you of stability and the ability to generate force from the ground up. The PositionUSA extended wooden heel enables maximum force throughout the lift.
2. Make sure your shoes fit correctly for lifting.
If you are trying to lift weights while in an ill-fitting shoe, you are increasing your risk of injury, as well as putting my stress and strain on stabilizing yourself instead of driving straight up. PositionUSA shoes and the velcro strap lock you in so you reduce the chances of injury.
3. Wear a 1"inch heel.
If you have mobility issues in your ankles, hips or shoulders, a higher heel height could help provide a better bar path and catch position.
4. Opt for a shoe with a Trapezoid heel.
A tapered trapezoid heel allows for a more stable position and solid foundation.
5. Wear shoes that grip.
Olympic lifting is a dynamic sport that asks you to hoist heavy weight overhead. To ensure your safety make sure you wear lifters that grip the platform. Vibram rubber soles enhance your grip on the platform.
Position USA is Bringing Craftsmanship Back to the Timeless Sport of Weightlifting
Instead of the synthetics and mass produced shoes on the market, we wanted to bring back natural materials, wood heels and artistry.
Position USA was born in 2012 after two lifelong friends asked themselves a simple question: “Why are we wearing cheap shoes to lift weights?”
They continuously experienced problems with the plastics and synthetic materials used by mass-produced brands.
On that same day they made a promise to make the best weightlifting shoes on the market.
Lifters love PositionUSA Shoes
Our ethos is hard work, grit and dedication. That’s why we brought back craftsmanship, premium natural materials, and artistry to the timeless sport of Olympic weightlifting.
