Powerlifting aims to develop knowledge of technique, mobility, nutrition, programming and supplements. Powerlifting is inclusive to all genders and levels of experience, and we welcome enquiries from those with a disability regarding the accessibility of Powerlifting.
Our Club | Oxford University Powerlifting Club
The club aims to help individuals interested in competing within the sport of powerlifting, and helping individuals learn how to correctly squat, bench press and deadlift. We provide training and ensure progress by providing the members with the facilities and equipment necessary to excel. Alongside dedicated powerlifters, the club includes sporting men and women from various other disciplines such as: boxing, athletics, rugby, and gymnastics; as well as several members who simply enjoy training as part of a healthy lifestyle, without any sporting ambitions. We operate club and squad training sessions throughout term time. Lifters of all experience levels are always welcome.
The Powerlifting Varsity competition is an annual competition against Cambridge’s CUPLC. A team of 16 lifters is selected from our club members based off of competition performances, selecting the highest scorers as assessed by the IPF Points system. The Oxford University Blues Committee recognises the OUPLC as a discretionary full-blue sport.
