Oh, I'm not arguing that men and women shouldn't lift. I lift and my goal is to look as good as some of the crossfitters I see. My husband on the other hand is one of those genetic freaks that is lean and has some natural musculature in his arms & legs without having to lift anything heavier than a computer mouse. Meanwhile, his younger brother spends hours at the gym and his arms are no bigger than my husband's. And yes, he's stronger than me by virtue of being a man even thought I lift and he doesn't. Would I like him to lift to get bigger. Nope. If he wanted to lift to get stronger I'd be completely supportive but he doesn't need to get bigger. Americans just seem to be extremists about everything, whether it be diet, exercise, politics, religion...They go from one extreme to the other of being overweight to having no life outside of the gym and all the mirrors they want to look at themselves in.
No announcement yet.
So, why men won't lift weights?
