In a time when the sport of female powerlifting is flooded by the 35 & under, Ellen Stein is an unstoppable force to be reckoned with at the age of 65. She not only dominates her weight class for her age, but gives every 6okg lifter a damn run for their money (me included!). She is feisty, full of life and is not slowing down any time soon. With a 992 total and a 506 wilks, Ellen inspires us all to train smart and keep pushing forward.
As a special treat, we had the pleasure of having Ellen’s coach, 2016 Powerlifting Coach of the Year and creator of 5th Set Methodology, Swede Burns. These two grumbled and poked fun at each other like an old married couple yet gave so much insight into the lesser talked about dark side of powerlifting.
We’re talking about men, who prey on woman looking for a coaching, only to find these “coaches” are just pervs asking to send nudes. And that, is just the least of it. Raw, honest and sadly true, Swede breaks down his own experiences with women who have been taken advantage of in the industry. Listen up and buyers beware when searching for your next coach.

- Her prototype for the flip phone
- Her 15 years of running experience
- 5th Methodology and how it works for everyone
