Teesside Barbarians Powerlifting Club are one of the North East and Yorkshire's most successful Powerlifting clubs. Set up in January 2014 the club has won the Northern Universities title two years running (2015/2016). 


Powerlifting is a strength sport that is open to everyone, regardless of age, gender or ability and consistently produces accomplished disabled athletes. The sport itself is split into three main events:


1) Squat

2) Deadlift 

3) Bench press


However, we do cater for individual goals and other sports training. 


Currently for the remainder for the 2016/17 semester we are training Wednesdays at Middlesbrough Sports Village. To come down for a free taster session please arrive at the students union for 12:45 where we will get a bus at 1 or 1:15 to train from 1:30-4pm. Buses will bring you back. 


Training clothing and equipment requirements: normal gym clothing is suitable please
