    Some women (just like men) will go into professional sports that will deform their bodies to extremes, by muscular hypertrophy, by near-death BF levels, by endless injuries. That doesn't mean that a gal that goes and lifts 2x-3x a week is going to develop all the negative aspect of what ultimate devotion is going to bring. Luckily, unlike fat depositions, it is easy to control the muscular size changes downwards. If the overgrowth that a gal doesn't like occurs (which is a relatively rare phenomenon on the upper body and more common on the quad), switching up the exercise to reduce the muscle is not that difficult.

    Trust me, I was doing everything i could to make the deltoid larger, and got a no go. Quads and traps did grow.

      Being strong or more accurate; lifting heavy is a relative irrelevant parameter to being healthy or looking good! As usual; striking a healthy balance works best for most people. A drugged up powerlifter woman that looks like a man is just as appealing to me as a Sumo wrestling woman or a she-male bodybuilder...

          That reminds me of a Chinese tale where a fat general was killed and overthrown, and the soldiers stuck a wick in the general because it was a cold winter, and the heat lasted many days.

            Seriously, there is more to life for some women than looking sexy. If someone wants to be a sumo lifter or a heavyweight lifter or whatever LET THEM. If they ask you if you find them attractive, fine, be honest. But otherwise keep your thoughts to yourself. Maybe these women would rather attain athletic achievements then be considered sex symbols.

            Must...render...their lard!
            That's a fucking asshole comment too. Fucking asshole comments like that are why women don't work out, puke up their food and starve themselves.

              it's not about winning the cash, it's about the satisfaction of watching
              beautiful
              yeah you are

              Baby if you time travel back far enough you can avoid that work because the dust won't be there. You're too pretty to be working that hard.

                Lifting heavy seems to be working for her.

                In matters of style, swim with the current. In matters of principle, stand like a rock.

                  Interesting...as long as you are pretty, it's a good thing, LOL. But the second you are unpretty, let us bash you and shame you. That lady clearly has a great body, fitness and nutrition dialed in. But if she was a little bulkier, maybe not so cute, in a frumpy outfit, we wouldn't give a shit if she was winning a competition or getting a huge PR. We'd just note that she uses steroids, we would not want to look like that or that she is a lardass.

                  So apparently, if you are pretty and lifting heavy weights, rock on with your bad self sister, we admire you. If you are less pretty...please, just go do it where we can't see you because it obviously isn't doing you any good to get stronger, because it's not making you prettier.

                    In all fairness, showing a thin, pretty woman lifting heavy is a good counterargument to Gorbag's unstated implication that lifting heavy makes a girl into a sumo wrestler.

                    I agree that aesthetics shouldn't be the only reason women lift, that capability and strength are virtues in and of themselves. See all the links I've posted in this thread. But there's nothing wrong with admiring women who are beautiful and strong. It's one of my favorite hobbies.

                      It's not primary about prettyness or how you look, but about health, and that goes to both men and woman! Lifting very heavy weights when having a lot of fat on your body is very taxing on heart- and cardiovascular system, and sumo wrestles and powerlifters tend to die early due to this...

                        I think the point is that beauty and strength are not exclusive. However, it also important to note that strength is strength, and does not make someone beautiful in and of itself. So, an unattractive woman who is strong, is still unattractive. Similarly, a beautiful woman is beautiful even if she becomes strong, which is a bit counter-culture, since society expects her to be dainty, and muscle-less.

                          nothing wrong with that and you always are encouraging. But to people who need to knock the women who are not so pretty, but obviously strong... for being not pretty sucks. I mean, it's not necessary to liken 2 women who seriously train and have a passion for wrestling to pigs. Let them enjoy their sport without the lens of unnecessary judgment. Let them enjoy their sport without having to think in the back of their mind that someone might see a photo they are proud of and liken them to being hogs. Seriously, the deadlift woman... maybe that was a PR for her and a proud moment. Yet people are like "mmm, her legs are big".

                          Pretty women and men don't get it. I used to have a photo of me jumping my favorite horse. He looked a 10 in the photo and my form was spot on. I loved the photo and my mom made the comment "too bad your thighs are so fat, ruined the image". It's like holy hell, if you aren't perfect looking, you'd better not take pride in anything you do since you aren't pretty.

                              The number of women who achieve a status of sex-symbol is as low as the number of women who are athletic stars. Very few can achieve that sort of a control over their body. That in itself is admirable.

                              Lifting heavy seems to be working for her.
                              Yes, it does, but it is NOT an Rx for looking like her. She is one of the very few genetically gifted lucky women who can have the firm muscular body when stimulated with lifting and who can actually progress in lifting. Most of us will not be able to simultaneously have muscular mass this high and BF this low and lift competitive weight. Same goes for any other sport.

                                Isn't that applicable to how girls view guys too?

                                Do we demand pictures of guys lifting on mda because we want to see someone with 3 eyes and obese lifting or do we want to see someone with a cute face and some 6 packs?

                                Be consistent please. I have seen you flirting with the mda guys and drooling over their 6 packs just like the rest of us. Don't turn around and preach to the guys for appreciating a pretty face on top of being fit.
