08: To Compete, or Not To Compete
Cassi and Katherine talk about competition, but they start with collaboration. They discuss the value in building bridges between coaches, connecting networks and most importantly, learning from others. Then they break down what it means to be a strength athlete. Who “gets to” compete, the benefit of competition to your training and community, and how you can incorporate some competition into your training even if you don’t want to get on the platform.
