And I've heard that "skinny-fat" is no longer fashionable: "Strong is the New Sexy" and "Strong is the New Skinny"!

PULL-UPS FROM A WOMAN'S PERSPECTIVE WITH VALERIE HEDLUND

Let's be honest, pull-ups are a pain in the ass. It takes an extreme level of patience and commitment to get strong at performing pull-ups.

I've found that women seem to…

This girl is doing a seated press with respectably heavy weight, but her high heels and helmet0like hairdo are like fig leaves preserving her femininity."

Is Physical Therapy Fraud? | Mark Rippetoe

"Why do the arbiters of all things exercise – the members of the Physical Therapy profession – insist that injuries must be rehabbed in a way that is completely different from the way that the uninjured component functions?
