073 - Natalie Hanson on equipped lifting and soft-skills of coaching

September 13, 2019

3-time IPF world champ Natalie Hanson joins the boys to talk about equipped powerlifting. We explore some of the similarities and differences in execution of the powerlifts in the equipped world, hear some stories about her competitive history, and talk about how training demands change with the move to equipment. We also chat about coaching, touching on differences between men and women, how individuals' motivations can influence their training decisions and engagement, and how body ideals can influence athletes' decisions to gain weight for their sport.
