Don't try and say that you're not guilty of at least one of these! All girls who lift have had moments like these, so don't be ashamed. When you worked hard to get a hot bod, you deserve to partake in a mirror flex or take pride in your calloused hands. Here are 10 things we've all done, but would never admit to:
1 - Add On A Little Too Much Weight To Show Off
This is often followed by a post-workout regret session (a.k.a. lots of sore muscles). But it was worth it to see the amazed looks on those gym goers faces, right?
2 - 'Complain' About Callouses
They look disgusting, but they are your battle wounds. You secretly want your friends to know how much of a beast you are in the weight room.
3 - Critique Other People's Form In Your Head
The gym is a place of secretive criticisms and comparisons. There is no escaping that fact.
4 - Get Bothered When Dudes Offer Advice
Just because you're a girl doesn't mean you're clueless. Get lost, buddy.

5 - But You Want 'Help' From A Cute Trainer
Yeah, you just got over ranting about how you're perfectly capable of handling this workout. But suddenly you see a flash of Trainer Hottie's smile and you've forgotten everything you once knew about weights.
6 - Try To Recruit Your Friends
How many times do you have to tell them that they won't bulk up and look like a man?!
7 - Pull Off A Subtle Happy Dance After Killing That Last Rep
You secretly want to go full on Beyonce, but you refrain. It was definitely worth the celebration though.
8 - Make Grunting Noises
Somehow making these boorish sounds makes lifting easier. So what if you sound like the Incredible Hulk, you're smashing your sets.
9 - Wanting To Coat The Gym With Air Freshener
When you workout around a lot of men, things can get pretty rank. Somehow you get used to it after a while.
10 - Wondering If Those Guys Actually Plan On Lifting A Weight
Ok...so they've done two reps and now they're discussing last night's Tinder date. C'mon boys, you really need that bench.
