Strong Woman Radio, Episode 43, Welcome Jen and JVB!

SWR Strong Woman Radio 43 Jennifer Jen outline

Welcome to Strong Woman Radio, a sanctuary free of testosterone (except for a few special guests), where ladies who like to lift heavy things can chitchat about the struggles and success that comes with being a woman in a male dominated sport. We welcome listeners of all sports, be it strongman, Crossfit, olympic lifting or more; but be warned we don’t like running very much unless we are carrying or dragging something heavy while we do it.

DON’T FORGET TO download, subscribe to and listen to the previous episodes! And as you get familiar with the show, leave those reviews and ratings in iTunes, and send us your questions and comments via the comment form, which can be found here.

Enjoy the show and lift on ladies!

Episode 43, Welcome Jen and JVB!

  • Intro (0:00)
  • Latest & Greatest (1:16)
    • Jen and JVB are on this week’s show – welcome!
      • Loved having Jen on the show last time, listen here
    • This duo just released the program Unapologetically Powerful
      • The program was a blast to launch, it felt like such a feminist move to focus a program on getting stronger and to not make it about weight loss at all
  • What Unapologetically Powerful is?
    • A power lifting program
    • Created with the goal of making the three power lifts very approachable and accessible for anyone interested in getting stronger working with free-weights
    • Anybody can be a powerlifter, and spreading that message was the goal of this program
    • The program is 12 weeks long, with both a beginners and intermediate level, and people can chose their own track
    • Biofeedback, the method of training used at Movement Minneapolis, is incorporated into the program, and this is the only program to incorporate that element
    • JVB shared more on what biofeedback is
    • Stacy had the chance to train with biofeedback testing and was able to feel the difference it makes with your lifts
    • Biofeedback is great for learning to listen to your body, and to push it to gain strength in the direction that is right for you
      • For more information on biofeedback, see here
    • The risks of strongman training
    •  What happened after JVB competed in her first power lifting meet and the flame that it lit in her
  • Stuff Happening on the Internet (15:44)
  • What Else is Going On? (30:03)
    • Jen just got back from Philly working on a shoot for a speed and athleticism program, geared towards women
    • Vivian’s latest competition, Ice Queen, and all that happened at the competition
  • Be sure to check out Unapologetically Powerful
  • You can find Jen on her site, Facebook, Instagram, Twitter

  • We won’t be back next week, but we will be back with a new show two weeks from now
