06: Feelings and Iron with Molly Merson, MFT
Join us in a conversation with therapist and strength athlete Molly Merson, discussing mental health and its effects on our training. We all get The Feels from time to time - what happens when those feels get the better of us, in and outside the gym? How can we as lifters make friends with our mental state, and how can we as coaches better serve our trainees in managing these struggles? We get into ALL of that and more in this episode that includes a glowing recap of USSF Nationals weekend and Cassi and Katherine’s reunion on the West Coast!
