Muscle Building — Benefits, Difficulties, & Our Personal Experiences (with Coach Charlotte) | PD Podcast Ep.64

Episode notes

Coach Charlotte joins Sue today to dive into muscle building. Like many of us, Charlotte started her fitness journey to be smaller. After realizing that was not the physique she wanted to build, she dove into weightlifting and playing the long game. Listen in as Sue and Charlotte discuss why you should build muscle and its benefits, and why some people struggle with building muscle.

As always, it is our goal not only to supply you, the listener, with valuable insights on the topics or questions but also to plant some seeds for further research and thought. Without further ado, let's get into today's episode.
