Anonymous 13808

Because they want women to be weak and submissive, so when a woman isn't they freak out because their masculinity is threatened. I haven't gotten cat calls or advances since I've started lifting and gotten more "bulky" lol I remember when I first started working out there was a creepy guy watching me at night and I just gave him the death stare, he left.

Because society has groomed women to be weak and submissive, even women who lift only do leg exercises because they fear they'll look manly (strong) and not be attractive to men because majority of men are preditory and want women that are weak and not assertive.

Incorrect, an average man is roughly 40% stronger than an average woman of equal body weight. When you add in that women are on average smaller than men, the difference widens. A woman has to exercise extensively to match a man who's larger than she is and all he does is not let himself get out of shape. The lightest Olympic men's weightlifting class, is the same body weight as the highest women's weightlifting class, and the male records ARE HIGHER.

That's not as much about dislike of/fear of becoming too masculine looking, and has FAR more to do with how overvalued butt size has become.

none of that disprove my point,your argument only proves that a guy unfit guy is stronger thanan unifit girl and a fit guy is stronger thana fit girl
my point is that if a girl lifts she will be stronger than a guy who don't lift so considering a lot of girls are lifitng or doing some contact sport and a lots of guys are doing nothing playing videogames, the idea that is "RARE" to find a girl who's stronger than the average guy is ridiculous
also you talk like a mra trying to validate your point with random data without proper contextualization

Anonymous 13828

>>13826
>your argument only proves that a guy unfit guy is stronger thanan unifit girl and a fit guy is stronger thana fit girl
No, my argument is that a girl HAS to be considerably fit to hope to match an unfit guy, or be substantially larger than he is naturally. I have seen girls that go to the gym regularly and have pretty nice definition be completely unable to keep up with men who generally don't work out. Also, you say I use "random data" when the data I mentioned is literally Olympic weight lifting records that can be viewed by anyone.

>Long Qingquan

>Chinese
>competed in Rio in 2016
>56kg body weight, lightest male world record holder in the event
>snatch/clean&jerk total 307kg, all time men's world record for his class

>Chen Xiexia

>Chinese
>competed in Beijing in 2008
>49kg body weight, heaviest female world record holder in the event
>snatch/clean&jerk total 212kg, all time women's world record for her class, which is the heaviest weight class in the women's event.

It's not even close. Sure Long is 15 pounds heavier, but his record is over TWO HUNDRED POUNDS greater than hers. That's not men being a little stronger due to greater mass, that is almost the same mass and his record blows hers out of the water completely.

Anonymous 13829

>>13828
it is random data because it's not applied correctly, my point was that a woman who lift can be stronger than the average moid, while your point is that unfit guy>unfit girl/fit guy>fit girl

the fact that a male elite powerlifter is stronger than a female powerlifter don't prove my point wrong, since i'm not saying female elite powerlifter are stronger than male elite powerlifter
my point is that a girl who can squat 160lbs or deadlift 280lbs, which isn't rare at all, will be stronger than the average guy, since the average guy can't do those lifts

No, your original claim was any woman who works out will be stronger than the average man. That is blatantly untrue, just working out isn't enough, the woman would need to gain a lot of muscle, assuming she's close in size to the man in question to begin with.

No, it's an "MTV decided this was a beauty standard they wanted to push" thing. The emphasis on butt size coincided with Kim Kardashian's sudden celebrity, and now everything is butts. 99% of tiktok "challenges" are just new ways to shake your butt at the camera.

Has anyone eased back into lifting after an injury?
I just work out at home using low weights and high reps, but built up decent strength and size.
But I've been out for the count for almost two months due to what seems like a pulled lat from not warming up. When I recover, I aim to incorporate other exercise first to warm my muscles up, specifically yoga and cycling.

But how long will it take to get started again? Also want to go to the gym and lift bigger someday, but tbh I'm kind of terrified now.

Because it's a level playing field, that uses the most stringent and exact record keeping on the planet for human athletics. Two people, a man and a woman, who were as close in body mass as you could ask for in a real scenario, competed in the same event, and she lost, massively. Gender disparity equated to a 69% difference in strength.

>i was saying that a woman who lift will be stronger than a man who is sedentary and don't lift

She can potentially do so, but she would need to put on a LOT of muscle, or be significantly larger than the man she's trying to beat.

>the idea of a woman being stronger than a man isn't rare, is not common, but is not rare

It is extremely rare.

yes and? a lot of people put a lot of effort on different things, and a lot of girls are putting a lot of effort on the gym, lifting heavy shit, as you can see on a lot of post on here, on tiktok, on instagram, on every gym in the country,a nd a lot of guys are siting all day playing videogames leting their muscles rot

Anonymous 14060

>>14059
NAYRT but I can't either. I'm overweight with no upper body strength, so that's part of it, but even when I wasn't so heavy I couldn't do it. Based off what others have said to me it's some parts body weight and some parts upper body strength; you need to ultimately be able to have the upper body strength to pull yourself up. Even if you're 100 lbs you won't do it (or do many at all) with no strength vs some 230 lb dude that's pure muscle and he bangs out a few pullups no problem.

This girl got buff just from pole dancing and doing sports as a kid

I don't have a pole but I want to have her physique (including the hair), but I also lack energy and motivation to do any exercises. I don't have the equipment either. I know that before even starting to lift I should probably figure out my mental health first and fix my diet probably.

I do some exercise though, I jump and run almost daily, i also do some squats, but so far there's barely any result.

Anonymous 14066

>>14063
the more you exercise, I think the more it will increase your energy. if you aren't already, pay attention to the foods you take in as well - you don't need to eat like a health nut, but if you eat more of certain food groups and less of others, I think you will also find your energy levels increase.

try some at-home pilates or yoga - that got me more comfortable with exercising more often before I started attending a gym. also remember that results take time, but you need to be consistent. if you're truly serious about it, it's worth the effort to join some fitness pages or groups online and put more research into it, or seeing a personal trainer if you can afford that. like I said, consistency is key but it's all a process - you even say part of the reason this chick got buff is that she'd been doing sports since she was a kid - she didn't get this physique overnight. she's been working for it for years.

Does the average woman interested in lifting lift her own body weight?

She can lift herself off of the ground and stay like that for ~20 seconds, it's not about muscle mass or size it's about strength which is far more valuable. Also weird to compare a pole dancer to women who lift, it's like comparing powerlifter to a swimmer

I don't want to be bigger, I want to be stronger, more fit and improve self-discipline

Anything makes you stronger if your muscles take a higher workload than they normally would. If you are just starting, push-ups might help make you stronger but at some point they won't, and it will be more about endurance like anon said.
To get stronger you need to keep increasing the load.

question, is there a such thing as "types?" Honestly I have a very big frame. I have never been seen as a female by guys (even have been mistaken as being male by other girls even when I had long hair).
It's a point of insecurity for me.

And yes I gain weight solely in my belly, back, and arms, so despite my massive frame, I have no boobs, a 1.0 WHR, and no ass. I am 21 BMI right now though plan to lose more.

Is it basically the best thing I can do to get ripped and own it instead of trying to make myself seem smaller and daintier, wearing feminine clothes that cover my body up?

I mean…I noticed a girl that had a body like mine yet was completely ripped being absolutely popular, even guys were crying for her to smash them. That made me really think.
