Prepare to bin your preconceptions about what it means to be a female weightlifter! Clare McDonnell and Kirsten Webster are joined by two of the increasing number of women who can often be found in that intimidating corner of the gym – the free weight area. We hear from the amazing PT, CrossFit advocate and weightlifter Laura Hoggins, who jacked in her office job to follow her Strongwoman dream. And by author and journalist Poorna Bell, who gained confidence after she gained strength and changed shape through lifting weights.
