Female Weightlifters

It is said that a healthy man can sustain only 45 Del (unit) of pain. But at the time of childbirth, a woman experiences almost 57 Del of pain, which is equivalent to the pain one will experience if he/she breaks about 20 bones at a time! Women are a lot stronger than most men imagine them to be, then what’s wrong if women use their strength to lift weights? Why do people question or pass silly comments? Even those people who say such silly things don’t have answers to these questions, and yet they utter them.
Well built body
The reaction of female weightlifters to this statement would always be, “aarrrggghh”. They have a ‘well-built’ body and not ‘well-toned’ body. If it was possible, they would happily have the word ‘toned’ removed from the vocabulary.

Becoming bulky
Female weightlifters work out to stay healthy, not beef up. People believe the myth that building muscles makes one bulky. The reality is that people who work out follow a proper diet and hence don’t bulk up. The other myth is if one stops working out, his build up muscles turn into fat, which is absolutely not true.
man like body
There is only one retort that such a comment deserves, “please get your vision checked,” Having a muscular body doesn’t change a woman to a man, instead it makes her fit, and fit is definitely not a synonym for ‘male’.

questioning the diet
Asking such a question is nothing less than adding fuel to the fire. Of course they too like junk food, but they can handle their cravings, but this doesn’t imply that you test their patience and resolve.
working out the whole day
If you like eating, do you eat the whole day? Hell no! Similarly, if she likes working out, that doesn’t mean that she drops everything on her schedule and camps out in the gym forever.

help reduce weight
They are weightlifters who are trained to build their body by experts. They are not dietitians or fitness trainers themselves. You go to them with your fitness issues or queries, and they can only give you a reference contact and a few basic tips, nothing else.
help reduce weight
Alright, agreed that their body structure is slightly different than other women, but this doesn’t mean that they don’t find perfectly fitting clothes.

living life
When they work out, they meet people who share their passion to lift weights and hence, become friends too. But remember they don’t spend their entire day in the gym. They workout for about an hour or two, and then spend the rest of the day doing what all ordinary people do.
