In today’s episode, Greg and Eric sit down for an interview with Molly Galbraith and Marika Hart from Girls Gone Strong. The conversation covers a wide range of female-specific lifting topics, including pelvic health, resistance training during and after pregnancy, and more. If you are a female lifter, or train female lifters, this interview is full of incredibly useful (and potentially surprising) information that isn’t discussed nearly as frequently as it should be.
