  • I lifted really heavy things (for my size and ability) for several years and my bladder and uterus *fell* due to the strain/stress. Be careful. BTW: I was 46 and had delivered 3 kids already but it can happen without ever having children.

    So, now I am jealous when I see women running, jumping, swinging and lifting because I cannot do it anymore to the same intensity. Pity party. I also want to run up to them and warn them!

          Yeah, I live in Seoul right now and I've never seen such a thing.

          Women here want to be 99lb w near zero muscle. Nobody would even think of coming over the olympic barbell, that's my turf.

          Never really saw it in the states either, just on those magazines where the chick is turning into the hulk.

          • Lol at giving other people the power to "make" you do things. Can you make me become a drunk again? Go ahead and try. I will never give you that power. And you should never let my words "make" you do things. That is frailty, weakness, and a victim mentality.
            You a 15 or 16 year old girl? With the strength to tell people to fuck off? No one makes me do anything these days, but back when I was a teenager, assholes like you commenting on my weight in a rude manner was not something I dealt with well and did do destructive things to myself. Funny, hard to build up a backbone when people are constantly cruel to you.

            Did it make you feel awesome and proud of yourself by making a "funny" about a couple of women not hear to kick your ass.

            I hope it did, because you were a person I had some respect for and I have exactly zero now.

                The difference between a sumo wrestler and a normal person is that a sumo wrestler gets to a specific level of obesity on purpose. They call themselves fat, make fat jokes, etc. Sumo wrestlers are fat jokes. I have never, and don't ever, tell people in real life - anything about their weight - unless I've noticed they've lost weight or gotten healthy. Any of my coworkers can attest to this. I'm sort of the local "health nut"/encourager at work. Ask around. People love me, or at least feel neutral about me, which is fine by me!

                What have I ever said that would make you think I'd insult a person about their weight the way you're pretending right now?

                And overweight 15 year olds? What do they have to do with professional obese sumo wrestlers who actually ARE covered in lard? You are confusing reality with comedy, and I'm sorry about that.

                People were far crueler to me than they ever are to fat people. Half the kids in school are fat. Almost none of them talked to inanimate objects, thought they were an android, made creepy sound effects non-stop, flapped their hands and stuttered like a machine gun. Sorry sister, but you got nothing on my childhood.

                But even if you are bad at comedy, I want you to know I still respect you! Keep up the good work, you're awesome!

                  Are they professional female sumo wrestlers? I mean, fuck, I looked like that at one point. worse, LOL. At any rate, it was a degrading comment. I'm sorry if people treated you like shit, I was one of three fat kids in my school. Trust me, I have empathy for you. It gets old going to class every day and being degraded.

                  LOL, off my asshole list, but I think it's time I bid MDA adieu.

                      And big strong muscles are big strong muscles, no matter how much fat they're buried under. Yay! Look at the world's strongest people. Never lean.





                      Also, woah.

I don't think that's really relevant to the topic at hand though, do you, Gorbs? Are you trying to encourage women to stay weak and frail for fear of waking up at 350 lbs one morning?

                        I'm continually advising that the focus of exercise( unless competing in lifting events ) should be to stimulate the body using the least amount of wear and tear as possible. Using certain high intensity techniques force the use of less poundage's, less sets and less overall gym time than many of the conventional strength routines that are pushed on this forum.

                          Intensity surely ranks higher then any other factor in strength and size gain.

                            Yep, at least when it comes to the heavy basic lifts! I am pretty sure that the deadlift and low bar squatting generation will waddle around in a few years from now with a uncle Donald posture due to hyper lordosis of the lower spine...

                              • Google "Pelvic Organ Prolapse" and see the common causes/triggers.

                                To clarify, lifting weights did NOT cause the pelvic muscle weakness, but certainly made it worse. I was part of a group run by a guy who really didn't understand the female body and certainly didn't take enough time to insist on proper form for the weight we were encouraged to dead lift repeatedly.

                                Don't just laugh along with the woman who jokes about peeing her pants when she does jumping jacks... warn her to stop lifting heavy things instead!
