Unleash Your Strength with the Barbell Club
Welcome to King's strongest club - the Barbell Club! If you're looking to take your strength to new heights, you're in the right place. We're more than just a club; we're a powerhouse of powerlifters and bodybuilders, dedicated to helping you become the strongest and proudest version of yourself.
Who We Are For:
Competitive Lifters: Are you itching to compete in powerlifting? We've got the coaching and support you need to stand out on the platform.
Recreational Lifters: Whether your focus is powerlifting, strength training, or bodybuilding, you'll find a home here.
Why Choose Barbell Club?
Our Coaches and Club Programmes are designed to empower you on your strength journey. While club programmes are available for full members, it's not mandatory - feel free to follow your own path. Want to know more about our programmes? Reach out to any of our friendly committee members for details.
Step on the Platform:
We're all about giving you opportunities to compete. Throughout the year, you can take part in local non-sanctioned and sanctioned competitions. Our coaches are here to guide you every step of the way.
In March, we host the official BUCS, IPF-sanctioned, university powerlifting competition. To join, you'll need a qualifying total, achieved at an IPF-sanctioned competition before the March event. For more details, shoot an email to our president or captain.
Training That Sets You Apart:
Our in-person sessions are a highlight, happening every Wednesday at FORT, SE17 1LB, from 14:30 to 16:00. FORT is packed with specialised competition-level equipment, perfect for those serious about powerlifting. We're also working on adding an extra session on Mondays!
Newcomers are welcome to try one free session without a membership (KCLSU sports insurance required, available on the KCLSU website). A membership opens doors to all our club resources.
