Remember Rodney? Well you will! Rodney was featured with us a couple years ago and he has gone on to do some pretty amazing things!
One such thing is the Bolus and Barbells events that are held in various locations throughout the year. This is a one of a kind event where people living with diabetes from all over the United States come together to be educated on varied topics including how to build a workout regiment, proper execution of lifts, diabetes pharmacology, and nutrition for type 1 athletes. Attendees can then participate in a lifting portion that will include the squat, overhead press, and deadlift with coaches on hand to assist.
The next Bolus and Barbells is coming soon! May 20 to be exact and it will be held in Miami, FL! There is no prior experience needed and friends, family, and plus ones are encouraged to come along! Click the link for more info! https://www.bolusandbarbells.org/bolusandbarbellsmiami
