    I love the feeling after a good workout!

    I had a great workout at the gym this afternoon but now my muscles are starting to feel it... My arms and legs feel like jelly after the weight training lol. How do you get your muscles back to normal after an intense weight day? I usually use a heat pack or stretch it out on...

    I'm A Guy And I Love Women That Lift Weights.

    There's nothing as sexy as a woman training with weights. At our gym we have this group of ladies that train in the mornings with us. They're real hardcore but remain feminine. No bulkiness like the steriod chicks just lean, toned, sexy muscles. Damn! I love it in the morning.

    The Joys Of Lifting

    I hate when my relatives tell me not to get

    bulky. I am sometimes self conscious in the gym because I'm often the only female in the weight room. I'm five foot nothing and very petite, so people never really take me seriously when I tell them I lift heavy. I don't have any female friends in real life who also lift, so the...

    Weight Lifting Is Far Superior to Cardio

    I used to be a treadmill-only type of girl, like almost every other girl I see in the gym. About 2 months ago I started lifting weights and doing absolutely zero cardio. My body looks better than it ever has. Long sessions on the treadmill are boring and break down muscle...

    Door Stops

    We have some weights I occasionally pick up. My Mum uses them more than me, but whenever the ever practical Dad gets ahold of them, he uses them as door stops and things like that. Which in it's own way, is clever, but then I cant use them, and neither can my Mum.

    A New Life Change

    I struggled for such a long time trying to figure out what the best way was for me to get fit and stay that way.  I eat nutritiously and often in order to keep insulin levels low and I enjoy it but I just could not get my body to look the way I wanted it to.  Finally my...

    I Love Weight Lifting...

    Growing up, I wasn't allowed to participate in any sports. I was very lean and my grandmother and mother were concerned that I might get injured. I watched WWE (World Wrestling Entertainment) since I was in my pre-teens. I admired the strength of the women wrestlers like "The...

    I prefer lifting to aerobics... it's been a while but I'd like to get back into it. Just something about it, the strength you feel, the way your endorphins kick in and the wonderful after feeling of just b

    If Your Muscles Aren't Busy...

    It Feels Good!

    I love the slightly sore feeling after a good weight-lifting session. My muscles feel just achy enough that I know I did good work, and am staying on top of my fitness. Muscle, lean muscle, burns through calories so quickly that I can indulge in a guilty pleasure (like a venti...
