Competitive weightlifter Marylynne Allen joins us to talk about how to weightlift as a T1D. Diagnosed as an adult, she shares her struggles with re-learning how to exercise with T1D, and her encouragement for all T1Ds who are interested in learning how to weightlift.
Once upon a time, I did have a personal trainer and weightlifted for a while, but the conversation between Marylynne and Jessie kind of went over my head!
Bottom line: you can totally weightlift if you have T1D.
Meet Marylynne Allen
Marylynne Allen has been learning the highs and lows of being a T1D for the past five years.
Not only learning this but adding being a weightlifter into the mix, there is room for being stronger than what she has anticipated.
