“If I wanted to look at CrossFitters I would be on a different kind of site.”
“If I wanted to learn about overhead squats I would be on a different kind of site.”
“If I wanted to read about joint health and mobility I would be on a different kind of site.”
Those are all pretty dumb statements because T Nation has always brought info for a bunch of people with a bunch of different goals, and it’s always written about why women should lift. This article is not new in that regard. Nevermind that the article isn’t even about “looking at women”. It’s about seeing a physique transformation.
I’m guessing you’re saying “it’s not an article” because it doesn’t lay out the exact training and nutrition she followed? They most likely weren’t included because it wasn’t the point of the article. It’s not a “How to Train Like Emma Stone”-article.
The point was that Walsh handled another significant celebrity transformation, just like he did with Damon and Cooper, and he turned a prototypical Hollywood-skinny lady into a believable pro athlete.
That’s absolutely in line with everything T Nation is about. And it doesn’t take a giant leap to see how it also serves as fuel to get more women into the gym lifting heavy. If you’ve never forwarded a T Nation link to your wife/gf to get her to lift, this one’s an easy shot. “Babe, Emma Stone started lifting for real and got into great shape. She even did deadlifts and farmer’s walks like I’m always telling you about. Check it out.”
