Heather Connor: What We're Getting Wrong About Injuries
Mar 16, 2020
Heather Connor

Heather Connor is a 2-time IPF World Champion and the first female IPF powerlifter to deadlift 4 times her bodyweight raw. Heather joins us to talk about the injury that sidelined her for nearly a year, along with why it's so easy for lifters to ignore the signs of significant underlying injuries and issues. We also chat about Heather's goals in the sport, what big money competitions could mean for powerlifting's future, and an unorthodox weight gaining strategy. 

Editor's Note: This podcast was recorded before it was announced the SBD Sheffield 2020 Powerlifting Championships would be canceled due to concerns surrounding COVID-19.
