Do Not Make Eye Contact While Using This Machine

Good morning and happy holidays!

Thursday I celebrated Thanksgiving with my family here in Boston which means I’ve spent the past 48-hours eating as much left over pie as I possibly can.

So, yea, it’s been a pretty damn good weekend.

Equally as great, this past week the fitness industry was overflowing with tons of incredible training & nutrition info so I’ve got a bunch of good articles for you to read in this installment of The Week in Review.

Does Lifting Weights Make Women Bulky?

do you even liftYou must get this question on a daily basis, right?

I know I do.

What sucks is that so many people still don’t know the truth. They’ve been duped by the media and ill-practiced fitness marketers into thinking lifting weights will make women big and bulky.

We’ve gotta put this to an end.

It won’t happen with a single blog post but with time and effort we can change the status quo. We can get the word out and teach people the truth.

To start, I want to share with you 4 incredible stories from a handful of my female online coaching clients.

In the past 8-weeks each of these ladies have deadlifted 2x their bodyweight or more and not a single one is big or bulky. To the contrary, they’re all wicked lean and incredibly gorgeous.

Below I’ve provided each of their pictures as well as a couple videos. If you know anyone who is nervous about strength training because they think it will to turn them into a big and bulky bodybuilder please share this with them. It might just be exactly what they need to see.

And here is a video of her more recently deadlifting 245lbs for 3 easy reps.
