I laugh at those who lift really light weight. In my opinion its a waste of time. My attitude "Go Hard or Go Home"

ha- yeah it kind of makes me mad when girls use the little 5 lbs. I hear all the time from girls, "I just don't want to get big and manly". You know what? I am a very feminine girl... I like nail polish, I like curling my hair, I like wearing skirts and, hell yeah, I like lifting dam heavy weights! Women don't have the capacity to get big and "manly" naturally. Drop the 5lb's and leave the gym... they aren't gonna make a noticeable difference and you look like a total wimp!

It's like they think if they actually pushed themselves and lifted some heavy weight they'd gain 50 pounds of muscle overnight.

It drives me crazy too. On a daily basis I'm telling a female she won't get huge. All they have to do is look at me. I am not even close to being big.

I spotted this girl at the gym on flat, incline, and decline bench press. She was doing the bar + 2.5-5 lb weights on either end and I can tell it's her first time doing it because she was kind of wobbly and barely doing 90 degrees. It's still nice to see a girl other than me doing bench though.
Currently my one rep max are:
Flat: 100 lbs Total
Incline: 100 lbs Total, tried doing 105, but nearly crapped myself.
I'd like to see more women lifting though. I can't tell if it's attractive when guys see me doing weights like that. It's not heavy lifting by any means, but still decent for being a girl. My boyfriend thinks it's cool and hopefully I can get one rep with a 45 on each side one day.
