Why are you carpetbombing this forum with random vids?

And horrible examples of women benching, like this!


#3

I'm sorry. There's no more space in PW for you to post awful random youtube videos of women lifting. Move along now.


#4

And if you're going to post 315 bench videos, the least you could do is post one of a woman ACTUALLY BENCHING.

Edit: her butt comes off the bench. Probably should have posted Laura Phelps 315 CT bench video instead since we're talking about doing it right...


#5

Yeah, that was wayyyyy cooler. AMAZING strength.


#6

I didn't know it was possible for a 43-year-old woman to bench at all.

Why does the spotter have his hands on the bar the whole time? I can't believe someone who's handling that kind of weight would tolerate that.


#7

She lied about her age.

Isn't that how you're supposed to do it?


#8

Dude...this original poster's kinda a creeper.

Can you kindly..um..not be creepy?


#9

As a 53-year-old woman (and retired PL'er), NOTHING will piss me off worse than a spotter grabbing the bar too soon! If I get a spot from someone I don't know, I have to tell 'em, "DON'T grab the bar unless I say 'git it!"


#10

AGREE....
Instead of random people, maybe there should be a thread of powerful women handling heavy weight?


#11
