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.
