Ep.28: This Is Female Powerlifting

In this week's episode of The Massenomics Podcast, we cross international borders and interview the women of ThisIsFemalePowerlifting.com in Edmonton, Alberta, Canada. With their recent website launch, these ladies are poised to take over the powerlifting world with a message we at Massenomics fully endorse...

"It's not that we aren't pretty. It's that our beauty is irrelevant. In the moment we pit ourselves against the bar, using every ounce of strength and will at our command to move the weight it holds, we transcend "pretty." To reduce what we do to how pleasing we are to look at or how fuckable we might be at the end of the day is worse than insulting; it's boring.

We do have beautiful, strong bodies and we’re proud of them. But as long as we allow aesthetics to come before athletics in powerlifting, we create a culture that excludes lifters who don't fit the ideal."
