Society Spotlight: Powerlifting (CUPLC)

30 October 2018

For the latest instalment of Society Spotlight, TCS Telly’s Sophie Huskisson & Tallulah Young braved the gym to chat with the CUPLC: Cambridge University Powerlifting Club.

Powerlifting involves the three main compound lifts: squat, bench, and deadlift. As a strength sport, powerlifting helps to build muscle and burn fat, whilst improving athletic ability, reducing the risk of injury in other activities and, of course, making you stronger!

The Powerlifting Club is home to Team GB athletes and complete novices alike. If you’re interested in joining, or want to find out more, visit:, or get in contact via:
