The JuggLife-Marisa Inda: Powerlifting in the Olympics and Body Acceptance


Written by

Marisa Inda is one of the most well known female strength athletes in the World today and for good reason as she combines incredible strength (USAPL National Champion at 52kg and 385# Deadlift at 110# bodyweight) with beauty and a nearly stage ready physique.

In this week’s episode of The JuggLife, Chad and Max talk with Marisa about her development from gymnast to bodybuilder to powerlifter, her feelings about powerlifting potentially become an Olympic sport and what she thinks of various body acceptance movements.
