A little real life motivation for you lifting ladies.

The first girl, Cecily, trains at the gym I just left to move up here. She is CRAZY strong. As her coach Ben (he’s the dude in red shorts dancing around behind her while she lifts) said, “She’s gonna squat 400lbs one day, no question”.

All these chicks are bad ass. 

This makes me want to find an oly gym. So bad ass! Now that I think of it, I could use the rubber plates at my old high school :) Ooh.

My favorite part is the look on their face. I always smile like an absolute fool when I hit a PR - some of these girls are ecstatic, others are like, “Well no shit I just did that.” 

… talk about a reality check!

thespartanwarrior:

I just don’t understand why people think it’s okay to do partial reps of anything, much less in squatting. Muscular development or strength is achieved by working muscles through a full range of motion. Squatting, benching, or curling through half of the ROM only trains the musculature through that given ROM and typically subjects it to injurious forces. For example, a half squat will not utilize the adductors, hamstrings, gluteals, or external rotators and as a result place excessive stress on the anterior aspect of the knee. This is why ignorant people claim that squats are bad for the knees. And why would someone want half a muscle?

Ego lifting is such a joke. Aside from the “let’s see how many plates I can put on the bar”, it isn’t quantifiable whatsoever. There’s no way to determine if one rep is comparable to another.

Happy Squaturday!

THANK YOU! drives me crazy to see these guys put on a bunch of 45s and do “sissy squats” MAN UP, if it’s not below 90, it’s not worth doing!
