In today's episode we tackle a topic that is recently more widely discussed in the health and fitness industry: the barriers women face when contemplating participating in weightlifting. These range from environmental barriers of being in a gym setting, cultural barriers in and out of the gym, and personal barriers related to the uncertainty of "how" to lift and "what" will happen when you do. Stick around for a great discussion led by Dr. Nisha Meyer on the topic with great practical advice on how to minimize these barriers as much as possible. Enjoy!
