Putting the Powerlifting World on Notice (w/Hunter Henderson)

Today we’re talking to Hunter Henderson, a record setting powerlifter. A heads up that we recorded this podcast before the Kern US Open, where Hunter won her weight class with a commanding performance — and took home a few records as well. Hunter has an interesting focus on cardio for recovery, which is something we think a lot of strength athletes can learn from. We hope you enjoy!
