Yes! It absolutely is. Weight training is extremely useful for improving your fitness and can even help improve your bone density which is something that's extremely valuable to women because we lose density easier as we age.

And just to add to that, anatomically there's no difference between women's muscles and men's muscles. Women and men should train exactly the same way, our bodies respond to the same stimulus.

i am not physically attracted to weak women. they could be wonderful people but i'm talking about "physical" attraction.


i hate the cringeworthy rise of liftingweight thing due to the stupid american guys. they are everywhere saying to each other: do you lift brother?
they don't even practice a sport. they go to the gym to "only" lift weights and they think they are athletes.


anyway and oh, i find many overweight women attractive AND sexy. type in youtube plus size lingerie haul xD god, many are very very sexy and lovely. i follow a few ones of them only for masturbation purpose, though.







but yes i definitely athletic/sports freaks come first in my opinion

more weight could mean more muscle added, or weigh less
mixed BMI

Interestingly, there is, physiologically (though maybe not muscles, per se), but not in the way people believe.

So some people think that women can't cant appreciable amounts of muscle mass, that's wrong. They gain at the same rate as men, percentage wise, just they start with a lower initial muscle mass.

Some people think women should train in exactly the same way as men to gain muscle mass, that's also wrong. It's intended to say "get off the bosu ball and under the barbell" which is correct, but women build muscle differently, hormonally. They lack the testosterone men do, but other hormones may take the place of testsosterone in repairing growth, this might be why women recover much much quicker than men, and can handle much more volume. Very well known phenomenon.

So women should train differently to men, in that they can actually train much harder, with much more frequency than men. If they want to change their bodies, they absolutely should be lifting weights, though 100%.

As long as they can lift a sack of potatoes it's a good start, 2 sacks of potatoes & she's a keeper 😉






And all our yesterdays have lighted fools the way to dusty death
Out, out, brief candle! Life's but a walking shadow,

It is a tale told by an idiot, full of sound and fury, signifying nothing.

Sexualizing girls is very wrong. Learn some manners, thank you.

Yes there is. You can see it when you arm wrestle with a guy whose arm is skinnier than yours. He wins because he has more power even if your muscle would be bigger. Which is very rare because women are free to use no matter how heavy weights but if you don't use drugs you will not gain seeable muscles. Maybe small but not similar to men. I used to use bigger weights to my arms than some men on my gym but I had smaller muscles than them. I had bigger muscles than some very thin men but genrally that is just unfair. I also read some study which said that muscle mass should have same ability for strenght than men have but it has not. Maybe they did not get the answer yet why it is so or then I just have not seen it yet. It is annoying!

No, I don't speak English and that is a secret of my happiness!
