10 good reasons why women should stay away from weights

Put it down, woman!

1. You might break a nail.

2. You could even bruise a male ego or two.

3. You’ll eat properly and still be able to lose fat. Work of the devil!

4. You’ll look more like an athlete and less like a runway model. Skeletal is sexy, right?

5. You’ll be able to lift heavy things without asking a man for help, thus upsetting the balance of the universe.

6. You will be seen in public without high heels.

7. You’ll grunt, sweat and feel sore. So unladylike!

8. You’ll be proud of your pert bum instead of being self conscious about it like a normal woman.

9. You’ll be more active and confident instead of sitting around looking pretty. What are you, some kind of feminist?

10. You’ll be stronger, leaner and sexier – and we all know where that can lead!

    That’s a bit of a joke, but I totally advocate women getting strong, fit, and being athletic rather than skinny. Posted on my facebook page!

    This is too funny. This smacks of bruised female ego.

    It’s nearly impossible to find educated people about this topic, but you seem like you know what you’re talking about! Thanks
