Dang new forum for YOU CAT! Woah pressure... seems like some of the FA ladies are trickling in there hopefully it builds up nicely and I am def. going to hang out in there too.
That said, glad you're staying here for now at least
My current split is two heavy UB, two heavy LB though my coach will sometimes throw in a day or two of more metabolic fast paced circuit type lifting. I absolutely 'lift like a guy' as far as progression on weights and always pushing one more rep 5more pounds total weight moved etc.
I HAVE EXTREME workout partner envy lately. I once just once worked out with this tough little chick Brandy who yes clearly only dinked around with the pink barbells but her inner strength and physical potential was AMAZING. She was a total BAMF and for that one brief workout I got hella stoked on having a real legit workout partner. Aaaaaand... she hasn't been back. Alas. Kind of a bummer.
I'm borderline considering a few workouts with a young guy friend of mine. He's a beginner and I know he's not as strong as the guys he usually lifts with which bums him out. We'll see. Still I think for alot of us girls we get stuck solo more than the men do just because there are SO FEW OF US.
I would say there are ten girls that lift in the big boy lions den free weights room at each of the two locations I train at. A few fitness competitor types, one or two that are definately strippers, a couple that are always there with their boyfriends and several that I assume are collegiate track/basketball/soccer whatever players.
