Just One More! With Joanna and Daphnie
#111 How to Build Muscle
Show us your muscles! Fitness media is really gendered: women are told to only focus on losing weight, and men are encouraged to bulk up in crazy ways. So, let’s take it down a notch and talk about how and why normal people should build muscle in a healthy, sustainable way. Plus, we spark joy with a Listener Question.

Plus, we go out for brunch in “What Your Trainer Eats”.
