Staci from Nerd Fitness was the first person that came to mind-
Meet Staci: Your New Powerlifting Super Hero | Nerd Fitness
Hi all, I'm hoping someone can save me some serious googling here. I've got two female friends who are looking to lose some fat and get stronger. I'm trying to convince them that they should stop with the elliptical machine and the 5 pound tricep kickbacks and just lift some heavy weight, but it's a serious uphill battle. I know from my personal experience that lifting heavy-ass weights (along with a decent diet, of course) is the best path to a strong, healthy body, but I can't really recall whether there was something that I read that convinced me of this or if I just figured it out on my own. Can anyone recommend some straightforward online articles that demonstrate the effectiveness of heavy weight training. Something specifically targeted to women would be great. (Or maybe links to blogs of healthy, strong women who lift heavy?)
I (and my friends' future selves) thank you.
I second the nerd fitness link
