Happy Saturday! We hope your weekend is off to a good start. Lauren and MiniBIG will be training today while I’m at the Wild West Fitness Winter Slam in Gloucester.
Here are a few of the things we’ve been reading and watching this week:
A Profile of Karyn Marshall– the first woman to clean and jerk over 300 lbs./136 kg. Marshall was an early pioneer of women’s Olympic weightlifting at a time when women couldn’t, you know, compete in the actual Olympics. She set multiple world and American records and is still active today as a Master’s lifter and CrossFit athlete. (OLift Magazine)
STRONGWOMEN – a short, informative video on the strongwoman community in the UK (how fun does strongwoman training look, by the way?):
“What the Barbell Took” by Lisbeth Darsh. You should be reading Lisbeth’s blog, for real.
Finally, our strongwoman friend Mena pointed us at this video:
“You were born to rip shit up.”
It’s Saturday. Go get it, and don’t forget to #sharethegrind.
