Like many of us, powerlifting came at a time when we were rebuilding who we were as a woman. Focusing on a skill that challenges & tests what your body can achieve is exciting. 3 years later, 15 meets deep (including a highly coveted Arnold) and a 463 WILKS, I’d say Kelley Spohrer has taken that challenge and ran with it.
Kelley’s powerlifting journey is one of great triumph laced with so many lessons. Like many mothers, balancing career & motherhood without mommy guilt can be difficult. One that, as we both discuss, may never really be “balanced”.
In this episode, listen as we go over:
- Feeling isolated in her area as a female powerlifter
- Competing at the Arnold and having “imposture syndrome”
- Balancing motherhood
- Post-meet Blues
- The joy of participating in a “Relentless” meet
