Dee Pol ,

Great insight for beginner Powerlifting women!

Solana Lewis is leading the way for Female Powerlifters across the board! I love listening to her podcast especially because the variety of women she interviews gives me such great perspective to a point that I feel like i’m in the room!! The personal stories and experiences from lifters in different federations is very helpful to hear as a newbie powerlifter myself. The transparency is unreal!! It’s not just interviews but very helpful info on everything Powerlifting, I’m loving it all!! Thank you and keep it coming!

Just what the doctor ordered

I’m so glad you are putting out con tent for women who are interested in the sport of powerlifting. As a physician and a lifter I am well aware of the many physical, psychological and social benefits of strength training. However, as a man it is often difficult to express to my female patients how beneficial true strength training could be for helping them manage their health. Thank you forTalking about how powerlifting has affected you and your clients. I will share your podcast with some of my female patientsWith the hope that hearing these things said by a woman will help them be more receptive to the idea that a rational, well-planned strength training program can help them achieve their health goals.

Thanks again,

Tyson Adams, DO
