  3. 3. History of Weight Lifting <ul><li>Early History- Weightlifting in some form probably dates to prehistoric times. It's easy to imagine some primitive man lifting a heavy rock and then challenging someone else to try it. -Of course, there's no evidence that anything like that ever happened. The first mention of something resembling weightlifting comes from China's Zhou (or Chou) Dynasty, which lasted from the late 10th century B. C. to 256 B.C. Under that dynasty, recruits were required to pass tests of strength before joining the military . </li></ul><ul><li>History of Competitive Lifting- The competitive sport of weightlifting originated with the professional strong men of the 19th century. George Barker Windship, a Harvard-educated physician, health reformer, and strong man who was billed as the &quot;American Sampson,&quot; was one of the sport's most important pioneers. Windship lectured at Bryan Hall in Chicago in February of 1861, before a strong man contest that's generally considered the first true weightlifting competition. For a $200 prize, Windship had agreed to take on all challengers. Only one came forward, a Mr. Thompson, whose first name is unknown. Thompson not only won the contest, he lifted 2,100 pounds to break Windship's former record of 1,934 pounds. ( It should be noted that both competitors used lifting aids involving harnesses and slings, and that Windship was forced out of the competition after his contraption broke.) </li></ul>Quit
