Unfortunately, Texas A&M Powerlifting does not currently offer scholarships. We are in the process of raising funds to fill an endowment that will allow us to offer scholarships to Aggie powerlifters. To learn more about the endowment, please feel free to contact us.

Aside from their different federations and rules, powerlifting competes in three lifts at a meet: squat, bench, and deadlift.

Most of our members compete twice per year. Once in the fall at a local USAPL meet in order to qualify for USAPL Collegiate Nationals in the spring.

On any given day our athletes will do two of the three main lifts (squat, bench, deadlift), or a variations of a main lift, followed by accessory work.

Powerlifting is a maximal effort sport, and in order to ensure a certain level of recovery is achieved adequate rest time is taken between sets. For that reason, compounded with many lifters trying to work out and lifting in equipment is why our practices are scheduled for 3 hours.

No, we require that all athletes stay the duration of the entire training session in order to ensure that the workout is not rushed, and that the whole team is supporting each other throughout the entire workout.

Yes, members will be required to compete one weekend in the fall and one in the spring. Other required events included judging high school powerlifting meets on the weekends in the spring and assist in hosting the USAPL Aggie Showdown.

Collegiate powerlifting is not an NCAA sport. It is under USAPL, which is the de facto collegiate powerlifting body. We compete against universities across the country. Almost all of the Under-24 y/o US National Team Lifters come from Collegiate Powerlifting. You will not find a better collegiate powerlifting experience than the one offered by the USAPL, there is a massive amount of competition, with extremely well run meets.
