Whether you’re already committed to weight training—or vow to start lifting soon—this is the episode for you. Hosts Sarah and Britany talk with Alyssa Ages, author of the new book, Secrets of Giants: A Journey to Uncover the True Meaning of Strength. While demystifying strength training, the guest:

-shares how a miscarriage propelled her shift from running to lifting;
-dispels the myth of bulking up;
-offers advice for getting started, or resuming, strength training;
-suggests how to incorporate found objects (read: rocks + more!) into your workouts; and,
-tells how to integrate lifting w/ training for a 13.1 or 26.2.

Before the guest joins around 17:03, Sarah and new mom Britany have a far-reaching conversation about eye color.
