Powerlifting is a BDFPA-affiliated club, open to all students at UoP no matter what ability, experience, or lifting interests (i.e. varied strength related sports such as strongman and olympic weightlifting). We aim to create a friendly environment where our members can come to train and learn from each other, whether it is your first time lifting a weight or if you are looking to build upon skills you already have. Our president is a qualified Personal Trainer, alongside other experienced lifters to support your training. We are expanding fast as it is a very popular sport and there are events and competitions being planned for the near future. The Powerlifting society welcomes everyone, so come and get your name on the chalk board!
We train at McCauleys Gym Plymouth which offers gym space for multiple lifting platforms and equipment, such as a competition bench, squat racks, and deadlifting platforms, to train for Powerlifting in addition to other strength sports (Olympic weighlifting and strongman). Our sessions are run between 7-9 pm every Thursday.
