Women In Powerlifting
A thread at Ron Palmer's forum asks for poster's opinions on women participating in powerlifting. Is there any way to attract more women to the sport?
OK so what do u all think about girls doing powerlifting? Is it a guy's sport that is being invaded...or do u find it completely normal that girls would want to participate?
I say not enough women in powerlifting.
1. It's great exercise.
2. Too many ugly guys already, even out the odds.
3. If my wife would do PL, then she'd understand why I need to buy all that crazy crap!
4. PL must be good for women. I've seen lots of women PLers, and the vast majority were very pretty!
5. They smell much better too!
WELL I AM NOT SEXIST IN ANYWAY SO I SAY IF YOU GOT YOU GOT IT.
I say, "Go on with ya bad selves!"
IMHO, "Give it hell!" Women don't do anything but add to the sport.
I think it is very sexy to see a super strong female powerlifter. As long as she keeps in tact with her femanine side. Some chics hit it sooooooooo hard they start to loose there sex appeal, and that is where I draw the line. Guys can get away with "certain" vitamins that women can't...
I would like to see tons more female lifters emerge! Just don't outlift the guys!
I personally love the sport and I think that men love too see women that are strong.
To me it's always a good feeling to shock guys when they see how much I can lift. Shocked
I also would like to see more women compete, it's not fun going to a meet and being the only female.
So all you powerlifting guys out there encourage your wives, grilfriends, sisters and even your mother's to try powerlifting. Not only is it a good workout but the competitions are fun.
My wife is a powerlifter . . . a 60-year-old powerlifter with records. One of the great things about powerlifting is that it attracts all sorts of people. Take the women out of it and it really suffers.
I say more power to anyone taking on powerlifting! If someone doesn't like it tough crap. Break down prs and barriers along the way!
I say get them the hell out of there! Women powerlifters...pshaw! What'll be next, male figure skaters? Where do we draw the line? Ballroom dancing? Fast pitch softball? What the hell am I talking about? Is anyone still reading this? Why are you listening to me? Who in their right mind would oppose chicks doing SLDLs? I make my wife do them. Damn, that shit is HOT! I wish I could teach her how to squat...mmm. Are you still here? Leave me alone. I need my privacy!
Ya...i definately think that if women are gonna do powerlifting they should remain just that...women. IDK..i might be an extreme....but even when i'm lifting i'm STILL a major "girlie girl" Wink Like at a meet i take my make up w/ me...and touch everything up and usually redo my hair before it starts...I dont like people seeing me when i'm looking less than my best. AND COME ON PEOPLE isn't it bad enough that i'm in a singlet....the hair and make up have GOT to be perfect! Wink OH and i'm weird...i usually dress up for meets. Wink I'm just not the sweat pants kind of girl.
My take on **uhhem** "suplements" Wink: is it really necessary....i mean for women? I'm not so hot on girls that look like guys...or sometimes even more manly than guys!
i think its hot to see a woman kick around weights...specially when she perserves her sexy... and can't kick my ass...lol.
the only down fall with women powerlifters is this...if they look sexy as hell in thier equipment they could knock us out of our focus zone at competition, it happened to me in my 1st or 2nd year of powerlifting....man did i bomb bad.
i got my ex-girlfriend intrrested in powerlifting enough that she wanted to try it out...she had potential, but not enough to stick with it...it became too hard...never made it to a competition competitivly.
yeah i think its cool to see a girl powerlifter and i agree with ron certain suppps girls shouldnt take... lets say testostersone enhancing ones
