[quote="Hayden"]My highschool (in Australia) had a simple weights gym including the standard cable and weight stack machines. We weren't allowed to use it until we were 15 or 16 years old. No help with programs, no technique help...nothing
finding olympic weightlifting equipment in Victorian gyms is very rare.
My school had no weights whatsoever, not even a single dumbbell. Although we had a lot of sports teams and good facilities in general, including a gymnastics foam pit which a few friends and I would use when we'd sneak into the gymnasium after hours.
