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.
