Leanna Carr and Brooke Erickson | PowerCast #179

Brooke Erickson and Leanna Carr joined us for episode 179 back in October as part of the “Ladies of Bodybuilding.com” tour. Brooke is an IFBB Pro Figure competitor, and Leanna is a figure competitor and a competitive powerlifter. Brooke gave us a look at what it took to get her pro card and how she had to balance family demands and training requirements to make it happen. She also offered insight on how recovering from an eating disorder has shaped her approach to her family’s nutrition. Leanna described how she’s pursing both aesthetic and strength goals.

We also touch on the role of social media in fitness, and the extent to which kids should be exposed to it.
Next week, Stan Efferding!

    Hey, huge fan of the powercast. I just wanted to see if this has been a persisting problem for other people. Episode 179 is not working for me through Itunes, it keeps saying it is currently unavailable and has been since it has dropped.

    • I just tested it and it’s working for me. I’ve had that same problem and restarting my phone solved it. You might try unsubscribing and resubscribing to the podcast.
