Weightlifting is practiced for health, fitness and enjoyment.  Despite the preconceptions that Weightlifting solely tests brute strength, Weightlifting is multi-factorial, involving technical skill, flexibility and speed as well as strength.

Because of this, many body types are suited to the sport.
