10 Things All Women Who Lift Will Understand Becoming a weight-lifting human will
change you—and your body—forever. 1. When you start lifting consistently, your appetite skyrockets. 2. You're proud of your calluses and agro hand veins. 3. Slamming weights around becomes your favorite new form of therapy. 4. Your gym attire goes from cardio-bunny cute to tough-ass bitch chic. 5. It's the worst when most gyms have a million treadmills and ellipticals, but just one or two squat racks and benches. 6. You may develop a little bit of a superiority complex. 7. It's just because you're getting hooked on feeling POWERFUL AF. 8. You can handle the 45-lb plates just fine, thank you, but guys still try to help you. 9. You're getting curvier. (Take THAT, all people who say lifting makes you look masculine). 10. You realize you're addicted to the gains, and your workout routine will never be the same.
