WELCOME TO WARWICK BARBELL
Strongest Club on Campus
We are a society for those with a passion for getting stronger, whether you're interested in Powerlifting or Olympic Weightlifting. It doesn't matter you're brand new to the gym or already a champ, so long as you're here to improve. If you're looking to learn or just want some friendly support, this is the place for you!
We've been working hard to improve our club for our members; we even won Most Improved Club 2018/19! But as proud as we are of the progress we've already made, we're always doing more to improve the club. Our training sessions are a great way to get some motivation when the weights are moving slow, we aim to create a good and supportive environment for everyone who comes along. As well as this, we also have a British Weightlifting L2 coach for anyone looking to learn or improve their Olympic Weightlifting, and we have talks and seminars for anyone looking for more information.
As well as providing a means for people to meet, we also encourage people to take part in competition at whatever level suits them. For beginners looking for a start, we hold an internal powerlifting meet towards the end of term 1. For anyone looking to compete on a bigger scale, we encourage lifters to compete with their respective governing body (British Powerlifting or British Weightlifting), which also allows lifters to qualify for British University Championships in their respective sports.
Outside of training, we hope to do all the things you’d expected from any society - circling, socials in Leamington and Coventry and sober socials for those not interested in drinking.
