Welcome to UOG Strength Club
“Strong people are harder to kill than weak people and more useful in general.” ~Mark Rippetoe
UoG Strength Club is home to the university's athletes who train to get big and stong.
We like to lift things up and put them down.
If you are willing to wear tight singlets, listen to German music, and drink copious amounts of protein and pre-workout; then this is the place for you...
Whether you do powerlifting (raw/equipped), olympic weightlifting, strongman, or just want to pull six red plates; as long as you are looking for an environment to grow, you are more than welcome to join the Strength Club. You don’t need any experience to start. During our two weekly training sessions, our coaches will support you with technical advice, a program to follow, and you will get the opportunity to improve your lifts under expert supervision.
We want to create an encouraging atmosphere during our training sessions. Bring some snacks, put on your favourite music, chalk up, and shift some steel! No more poor spots/lift offs from some random dude in the gym, no more shitty equipment, and no one to tell you you’re not allowed to use chalk when you deadlift!
Training takes place every Wednesday and Saturday from 10-12am at the Strength and Conditioning Suite at Oxstalls Campus. We are also planning on organising trips to other gyms in the region, or train together with other university teams in the South-West.
If you wish to compete in the GBPF, we will make sure you have some support at your meet to handle you and hype you up. We actively encourage everyone to do it as it's an amazing experience, especially when we compete as a team, but you'll never be forced into it.
For those of you that want to give it a try, we will host a university deadlift competition in December, where you can experience the atmosphere of a meet. Some other University teams will also join us to bend some bars, followed by a few beers. So there is still enough time for you to prepare. Join us now!
