Episode 4 - A Dirtbag Christmas
Dec 19 16
This week on episode 4 of the first season of GutsXGritXGrind, the This is Female Powerlifting podcast, we summon the spirit of the festive season to bring you a Santa hat full of powerlifting-related, rant-invoking topics. Take four dirtbag powerlifters, two angel powerlifters (to balance it out) and a five minute timer that signals when it's time for whiskey shots and you have the worst thing we've ever done. The best thing we've ever done? Sorry mum. Sorry everyone.
3:07 Topic 1: STUPID "US VS THEM" POWERLIFTING DISPUTES. We don't care what fed you lift in, but posting dumb memes and whining about perceived slights against you because of the fed you lift with is ridiculous. Why is our sport so fragmented?
4:51 More feds, more records. Default gold for everyone!
5:12 We explain what a sub-master is. Sort of. Tess asserts dominance.
6:15 We call out the IPF. BOOM!
9:05 Topic 2: EARNING YOUR OPINION CARD. What is the magic point that we're allowed to have an opinion on something? Do we need a degree? Time in the sport? A certain Wilks?
9:40 Have you considered someone might be smarter than you?
10:30 Darron hates people. (But especially those who don't recognize other people expertise)
13:05 Bonus time to discuss the Lifting Concern Police. Eff you, windbags!
15:10 Topic 3: IS YOUR PR A PR? If you have added the caveat "no, he didn't touch the bar I swear" to your PR, you probably didn't do it alone. Is your competition lift PR really a PR when it's a mile high, or your butt came off the bench? Are we just too judgemental?
16:40 Be honest with yourself. If your PR isn't sport specific, it's irrelevant to your sport.
17:22 Darron wants to see your butt! Show us your butt!
19:02 Gaïa ruins Christmas
19:55 Topic 4: CHEER UP, GYM EEYORES. Please, be happy about something you've done, even just once. For me. For you. For everyone.
20:19 Truth bomb: you might not PR during every single training cycle
20:54 Default gold. It's not Tess' fault that no other fat old ladies have shown up.
24:08 "Let's get fucking profound now here, bitches"
26:00 Topic 5: SO YOU'RE INJURED. STOP TALKING ABOUT IT AND START DOING SOMETHING ABOUT IT. You've posted 800 times about your injury/"injury". You've posted 0 times about what you are doing to fix it. This leads us to believe you are doing nothing. When is an injury a legitimate injury and when is it an excuse?
27:40 That time Tess tore her achilles and Darron heard it snap.
29:00 Go see a professional! Quit trying to fix
