About UI Powerlifting
University of Iowa Powerlifting is a powerlifting team and club founded in August of 2011. Our goal is to bring together
University of Iowa students and faculty with an interest in strength training and, more specifically, the sport of
Our roster currently contains around twenty lifters, with nine active, competitive powerlifters. Anyone is welcome to
join, regardless of whether or not you have an interest in competing on our team. There's no membership fee, and
members have the choice of competing.
For casual participants, joining University of Iowa Powerlifting gives you the opportunity to meet other experienced
lifters and exchange ideas. We hold regular meetings, and many of our lifters train at the Campus Recreational
Wellness Center (CRWC). Whether you're a novice of an experienced lifter, you're welcome to participate.
If you're new to the sport, having a team around you to support you through your first meet can be extremely
beneficial! We've had lifters with as little as three months' experience compete in their first powerlifting meet, so you
don't have to be experienced--or all that strong--to compete. Powerlifting meets are welcoming venues that cater to
lifters of every level!
