Welcome to Powerlifting!

Powerlifting is a strength sport with a focus on the Squat, the Bench Press, and the Deadlift. It is a great sport to introduce people to strength exercise.

With our success in 2021/22, taking Scottish University Championships best mens team, second best womens team, best overall team and 5 individual weight class gold medals and an individual invite to represent the university and team GB at the University World Cup, the club is in a great place to continue to grow in size and competitiveness in the 22/23 academic year.


Currently, we offer the following to our members:

  • Programmes for new and returning lifters that were created by licensed PTs and experienced powerlifting coaches
  • Competition prep coaching from our qualified and experienced coaches who helped lead us to success in previous years
  • Competition day handling for everyone at British or Scottish university championships, and at other competitions when possible
  • Paid entry to either British university championships or Scottish university championships
  • Access to the elite sport high performance facilities at the university 3x a week (includes IPF spec power bars and benches)
  • A standard annual membership
  • Access to our what's app group chat
  • Regular social events
