"Women Shouldn't Have Muscles"

June 07, 2014 2 min read

When I shared a photo of my abs from eating clean, I got a ton of positive feedback. However, there were some comments that were pretty negative, which shocked me. Some of the comments that  I got were: "She looked better before." "Women shouldn't have ripped abs" "Her abs look manly" "Women shouldn't have muscles" Really? Really. The last comment stuck with me the most. Women should not have muscles. This leads into the debate of whether or not muscles  look good on a woman or whether or not a woman should have them. My biggest question is, "Why not?" Sure, every body type and woman is different, but what is it about a nice pair of abs or large quads that makes a woman look "manly" exactly? One of the biggest reasons why some women refuse to weight training is due to the fear of getting big, as shown below. It is almost impossible for a woman to get this big, naturally, without some outside source such as testosterone injections, steroids, GH, etc. So, do not worry ladies! photo 1 (2)     Now, I do agree that a woman can take it too far. But even with that, it is just a personal opinion. What's not sexy to one person might be completely attractive to another. Instead of worrying about whether a woman's muscles make her look manly or not, let's applaud the efforts in the fact that they are taking strides in maintaining an active & fit lifestyle.   What are your thoughts?   Have you seen our fitness videos?
