Why do you DL so much more than you Squat? What are the reps for both? I'm going to think maybe the DLs are a triple, but the squat is a set of 10?

deadlifting is much easier than squatting with a bar on my back... i'm thinking that's why i DL more than squat... but those numbers are when i'm maxed out-- i'll do 5 sets of 2 deadlifts building up to 205, and 5 sets of 2 squats building up to 150... that's only acouple times a year, i was just pointing out that i can lift that much, but my usual is 5 sets of 5 DL with 180 and 5 sets of 5 squats with about 115

I wonder what percentage of women who can bench press 250 pounds are actually attracted to men. I bet a large percentage of them are butch dykes.

So do I, which is why I have to cycle how much time I use the Barbell BP for, it usually messes up a shoulder, which is why I use mostly DBs.

Reece probably is not a great indicator of BP strength as far as women go. With her proportions (long arms, long torso), she has the worst possible biomechanics for the bench. But she is powerful and explosive nonetheless.

Ann Maria de Mars, a former World Champion Judo player and her daughter Ronda Rousey, also a world class judo player, both bench over 200 lbs, and Ann Maria competed at 105 lbs! Celita Schutz, who fought at 154 and 172, easily put up 200+ as well. I also know a couple of Cuban and Colombian athletes who are freakishly strong.

You set that one up, sweetie..

Those numbers are good though. Not lifter's numbers, but those of an athlete nonetheless.

Thanks for confirming the fact that i'm an athlete, Lucario. haha. i'm glad those aren't "lifter's numbers" though, cause I'd rather workout in a smart way for what i'm trying to achieve in swimming. Swimmers need a lean muscle stature and that's all i'm going for.. Not tryna beef up over here, haha especially after learning dudes don't dig it anyway

Do it the way you want to. But don't assume that all guys don't like the way heavy lifting women look. And I am not talking steroid bodybuilders. I am talking about strong, fit, naturally muscular women here.

It's a huge pet peeve of mine that women assume that if they lift weights, they will get huge muscles like men.

1) It's insulting because a lot of men put a lot of sweat into muscles. Don't be all insulting and think you'll hit a shoulder press and put an inch an a half on your shoulders over night.

2) It's ignorant. Unless you pump your body full of Testosterone, your muscles aren't going to respond the same to weight training, as a man's. I like muscular arms and legs. I guess an example would be looking at Barbie Blanks, a fitness competitor.

As long as her musculature was not masculine.
Fitness athletes, gymnasts, track athletes and similar ladies have nice physiques.
Not really digging the hardcore female bodybuilder types.

I agree. Female bodybuilders are NOT attractive.

Give me a chick like this any day. Overhead squatting her body weight of 123 lbs.
