Strength and conditioning

Welcome to the University of Liverpool Strength and conditioning club

The University of Liverpool Strength and conditioning club is dedicated to the pursuit of health, fitness and performance excellence; regardless of your sport/training background.


In S&C we take pride in offering our members the chance to compete in two strength sports. Both our Olympic Weightlifting and Powerlifting teams are the cornerstone of the clubs competitive edge, with both partaking in official British University Championship sports (BUCS). Both teams are led by expert coaches in their respective fields and not only help experienced lifters reach their full potential on the national stage at BUCS but also aid beginners to the sport starting their journey through the clubs participation in open competitions (competitions that do not require a qualifying total to enter) including the annual Powerlifting varsity against John Moores.

Whatever your experience with a barbell we are committed to helping you achieve in competition and for members looking for a more casual experience we also offer our ladies only hypertrophy/aesthetics sessions and metabolic conditioning classes. 

Social events

We're very big on ''Train hard, play hard'' school of thinking - offering plenty of diversity among our social events. With this in mind, our social event calendar is laid out in order to cater to a respectable variety of social events. Whether that’s getting involved in the massive Athletic Union nights or having a meal, you'll find something for you.
