    I'm doing a project on deaf weight training, I don't really have to focus on a specific type of training at this point. I've found some random sites but most of them don't offer much information. I haven't hit the library yet, just curious if anyone on here has seen any info on any orginizations or knows of any deaf lifters, appreciate it.

    Any particular reason? It's an interesting idea, but is there a significance? Are you hearing disabled?

    It's for school, part of an ASL 2 class that I'm taking.


    This is the best site I have found so far, http://www.deafstrongman.com/
