Welcome to The Chocolate Bar Podcast: Our Lives, Our Strength, Our Time. The Chocolate Bar Podcast was created to celebrate and give a voice to black women in strength sports- Powerlifting, Olympic Weightlifting, CrossFit, and Strongwoman. WE OUTCHEA, y,all! This podcast began as a passion project born out of the desire to see faces that looked like mine doing the thing I love most to do: pick up heavy sh*t and put it down!
This is your home away from the gym/box to discuss all things strength, lifting and life, and how to balance them without losing yourself in the process. If you are a super duper advanced athlete, this is your spot to share your infinite knowledge and wisdom with us! If you have no idea what strength sports are or why you should care, this is your spot to ask questions and learn all about them-the highs, the lows, the good, the bad, and the ugly!
