Women of Strength

I've said it before, and I'll say it again.  There is nothing masculine about a strong woman. Period.  In almost all cases, the women who look masculine and participate in fitness and sport competition have some level of experience with drug use.  Certainly, there is the minority of women who are born with higher levels of testosterone, growth hormone, and other androgens, which contribute to greater muscle mass and more masculine features.  But realistically, you probably don't know one personally, as they are fairly rare.

So ladies, don't shy away from the heavy iron!  Don't limit your progress because you are afraid they will turn you into a man.  The fact is, lifting heavy stuff is hard. It hurts, its frustrating, and you have to make funny noises and get sweaty.  However, it is also one of the most beneficial activities you can do.  And even better, the confidence you gain from being successful at heavy lifting changes your life.

So, without further ado, here is my wife, kicking some kettlebell A$$...
