The average woman in the US weighs 170lbs. I’ve been in the fitness industry for 16 years hearing skinny fat and obese woman say they don’t want to lift weights for fear of getting big. This woman (@ayshahaleyy_ ) is 140-something pounds and WARMING UP with 365 to 405lbs on deadlift (video here: https://www.instagram.com/p/B6R1ob5D9aJ/). She ends up pulling 465 for three.
You are living in a delusional fantasy world if you think you’re going to achieve function, athleticism, decrease in chronic conditions, or a worthwhile physique by avoiding heavy strength training.
