    Women and exercise

    Primal Fuel
    I've been thinking about the differences between men and women lately and I'm wondering if we should exercise differently?

    absolutely not, get under the bar and do some squats

    besides, gender does not exist, it is a social construct

    The only time I think women might need something quite different than men is during pregnancy and postpartum (and postpartum mostly because you might be so busy w/ the new baby its harder to set aside the full 20-40 minutes to workout in!)

    Check out BODYROCK.tv | Fitness Advice, Workout Videos, Health & Fitness | Bodyrock.tv for some cool primal-like workouts led by a woman. Also check out this sweet thread about crossfit women. Be sure to watch the video in the article here: Intimidated by CrossFit Women? That’s a Good Thing. CrossFit Charlottesville You will be inspired!!!

    I think the most important thing is to start with where you are--I really liked doing the Primal Blueprint Fitness basic tests to see where/how I needed to start working out. I also love Al Kavadlo's site for workout info--a great breakdown of levels/progressions of bodyweight exercises can be found here: Al Kavadlo – We're Working Out! Mastering Your Body Weight

    HTH!

    Btw I'm not afraid of ending up looking like a man if I lift heavy. I don't like it much, but that's another story ...
