Kristin Pope and Monet Bland, two of the girls from Team Doughnuts and Deadlifts stopped by before competing in the USAW American Open and USAPL West Coast Championships to talk about competing, diet, gaining weight and cutting, body image even in a sport where looks are not a primary or secondary goal, life outside of the gym and share their infectious laughs with the world.
Desiree Morgan and Tony Montgomery Jr. from Team Doughnuts and Deadlifts stopped by during the American Open in Reno, NV (how convenient for us!) at the beginning of January. We talk about their new online coaching business (www.tmnutrition.net), training through injuries, getting back on the platform, and how nothing in life is owed to you.
Big Jess Anderson stops by and talks strip clubs, how to DM, "professional" powerlifters, eating big, and being the youngest person to ever squat more than 900lbs in competition.
Welcome to the Black Iron Iron Cast Podcast! In our first episode, we sit down with (some of) the coaching staff at Black Iron to talk about life at BIG, rap in NPR voices, the Black Iron Black Book of Training (which can be found at our Gumroad) and play a round of "Would You Rather".
Video versions of our podcasts will be available on our YouTube page: www.youtube.com/blackirongym
We open with our technical difficulties while Ryan tries to get our equipment to work, all while the camera was rolling. Then we discuss not having intro music (we really need to fix that!) and then we get rolling. Welcome to our world, world!
