Hey all –
Happy Sunday! This week’s newsletter has a female lifter flare to it, so if you’re a lady who loves lifting heavy things, I think you’ll love this week’s content. Enjoy!
This week on the Strength House Podcast, we’ve got women’s soccer extraordinaire Lori Lindsey as our guest. A former Olympian and member of the US Women’s National Team, Lori is now a performance coach and co-founder of Formation Strength. We had a blast chatting about how to coach female athletes and the state of the fitness industry as it’s marketed towards females.

Client Spotlight: Katie and Sarah
Congrats to Katie and Sarah of the CSP Women’s Powerlifting team for dominating at their first meet yesterday! They both set PRs across the board, including Katie’s 303 deadlift (her first 300+ pull) and Sarah’s 374 deadlift (the heaviest of the meet). Click the image to see videos of their best lifts of the day.
So so so PROUD of the @fit_n_fueled_paliottis @mrs_paliotti and @spaliotti of the CSP women's #powerlifting team for dominating at their first meet today. Here's how it went down: Katie: •204 squat •165 bench •303 deadlift (welcome to the 3hundo club!!!) Sarah: •286 squat •160 bench •374 deadlift (heaviest of the morning session!) Can't wait to see what these ladies do at their next meet in October. ••• #powerlifting #gym #fitness #workout #motivation #squats #benchpress #deadlifts #fitfam #fitspo #instafit #bonvecstrength #cspfamily #ladieswholift #girlswhopowerlift
