For the longest time, powerlifting was a male dominated sport.
Recently there has been a seismic shift as more women train and
compete in the sport of powerlifting. Reports indicate
approximately 38% of competitors are female, a stark contrast from
just a decade ago. What happened?
In this episode we are fortunate to have three women at the top of
their respective categories, share their insights. For raw classic
powerlifting, we have the OG, Jen Thompson who has broken over 60
world records in the IPF. For equipped powerlifting, we have 2x IPF
Open World Champion Natalie Hanson. Last we have the unstoppable
Stefi Cohen, who continues to shatter world records in the untested
powerlifting division. These three women offer an inside look at
their experiences, struggles and triumphs in this episode.
