UMPL serves to bring together students interested in the sport of powerlifting, as well as those who seek to build strength, power, and muscle through the powerlifting movements. Our goal is to foster a friendly competitive environment where students can test their strength against one another in student run mock meets. We strive to be a community where students can train, learn, discuss, and grow from one another. We cater not only to competitive lifters alone however, as we encourage those interested but powerlifting and weight training in general to join. We have a talented, knowledgeable, and a friendly community that can help guide and train newer lifters into the sport and weight training as whole.
