Why Powerlifting?

Posted: August 27, 2013 in Links and Information

My husband sent me this link about “Powerlifting Girls” last week. If you have a few minutes to spare, I suggest reading the article, then searching YouTube for videos of the featured women. One of the powerlifting women, Caitlin Trout (shown below), wrote this great article: 5 Reasons Women Shouldn’t Be Intimidated by Powerlifting.

From what I have read, most women shy away from lifting weights (in any capacity) because they do not want to “bulk up.”

I am not one of those women.

I want to look strong, I want to feel strong, and, most importantly, I want to be strong.

Throughout my journey, I’ll make sure to post pictures of my transformation. This way, we can see how “bulky” I get (ha ha).
