We bring together students interested in powerlifting and getting stronger. We offer group training, competition facilitation, a UoB team at the British University Championships, coaching, internal meets and socials. Everybody is welcome: from totally untrained to seasoned competitive lifters; bodybuilders and general gym-goers.
For complete beginners: powerlifting consists of the Squat, Bench Press and Deadlift. You train to become as strong and efficient as possible, and in competition you try to move as much weight as possible to win your weight class!
See what we're up to on Instagram and Facebook (our group is here) and read our press release!
Training is on Saturdays in the Old Gym on campus at 2pm, or from 3:30pm for more experienced lifters. Stretching and mobility sessions are 4pm on Wednesdays in the Guild dance studio.

To ensure that you get what you need from us, when you need it, we have created a set of promises which we will always aim to deliver.
Every year, you elect fellow students to your Officer Team, who represent you and lead your union. Each Officer has their own roles and remit which you can view below. You have a chance to make sure your elected Officers are doing what they said they will, by attending Officer Question Time held each term.
