    I can't say that I ever see such a thing where I work out, but I was watching tv and there where women doing some impressive weights in the crossfit games. On that level I move into assessing and appreciating them as an athlete. That does involve staring .

    I always think, "You GO, girl!" because as a woman I love when I see another woman who knows that lifting heavy is good. It really bugs me to see women lifting the 2 lb pink weights, or to tell me they "want to tone, not bulk up."

    Weight at start of Primal: 189
    Current Weight: 174

    Women lifting heavy is awesome.
    Disclaimer: I eat 'meat and vegetables' ala Primal, although I don't agree with the carb curve. I like Perfect Health Diet and WAPF Lactofermentation a lot.

    The weight a woman or a man is lifting means very little to me, it is the intensity of effort they put into a set that gets my attention. If I saw a woman in obvious pain,gritting her teeth as she pushed passed failure on a leg press with moderate weights using partial reps, static holds etc that would impress me more than some she hulk squatting 300 lbs for easy straight sets.

    When I see a woman performing proper barbell lifts, whether or not the weight is more than I can lift, I get the vapors. My pulse rises, my knees shake, and my palms get clammy. It's like the first time I ever fell in love, all over again. Keep that shit up!!!

    I usually feel admiration and jealousy. All the women who lift heavier than me are GORGEOUS. I'm just short, fat and old.

    Starting squat: 45lbs. Heaviest squat: 180 x 2. Heaviest Deadlift: 230 x 2

    I am all for women lifting heavy. Where I work out there are some professional women bodybuilders, figure competitors, power lifters, and simply women training with Olympic lifts. I am not big on the women bodybuilders because of the hormone use (you can tell listening to their voices), but the others look great. I am more impressed with consistency, the ones I see there week in and week out are the ones that turn my head. The women in their 40's that have been coming for years are the ones that impress me. Maybe its because I am older now, I find myself thinking "shit, I did that at 28 too. Hell, anyone can lift hard and heavy in their 20 and 30's! Talk to me at 45.."
