“I’ve never told anyone this, but right before I hit the platform I…”. This is just one of the many gems rising powerlifting and bodybuilding star Hunter Henderson shares with us in this fun, off-the-cuff interview about what she does to keep striving for the top.
Hunter is ranked #2 in the world amongst men and women with an astounding 1548.7lbs (702.5kg) total and a 687.63 DOTS score, trailing behind #1 Marianna Gasparyan, but right above heavy hitters CC Ingram and Stefi Cohen. She is taking women’s powerlifting by storm with only 5 meets under her belt and 3 years competing.
Though only in her mid-twenties, you can tell Hunter is an old soul who is wise beyond her years. Watching her train, her lifting also speaks volumes about her focus and poise. In this episode, Hunter expresses herself with confidence and conviction of her capabilities, yet is humble and grateful for each time she is under the bar. She is hungry to see what she is capable of and as she so eloquently states, puts her head down and does the work.
In this episode, Hunter and I speak about her transition to bodybuilding and what drew her there. Listen as we go over:
- Balancing working in the medical field while training
- Books we love that we both shared with eachother
- What happened on her first powerlifting meet
- Realizing she was not working hard enough
- Mastering staying in the zone, no matter what
- What she does right before she hits the platform
