With the risk of becoming lame, I will once again talk about women and weightlifting, and especially about weight training about your legs!

As you already know I love lifting heavy weights! I love doing squats, deadlifts, cleans, push presses, throwing around sledgehammers, kettlebells and tires! More often than not I get disapproval from people around and sometimes it is really annoying!
