Powerlifting is a strength sport and weight training exercise that consists of three

attempts at maximal weight on three lifts: squat, bench press and deadlift.

Our mission is to attract and develop the powerlifters in DCU by providing excellent

programming, internationally accredited coaching, and the opportunity to compete

against the best in the country.

DCU Powerlifting was formed in 2017 and has since taken part in two IrishPF

Intervarsity competitions, placing third and second. We have had many athletes

compete at the national level and represent Ireland on the international stage.
