About following figure athletes on social media -
If following super fit/ beautiful women inspires and motivates you, or teaches you something, or even reminds you of exercises or that you've neglected - then it can be a positive thing.
If following super fit/ beautiful women on social media causes you to feel discouraged, to focus too much on your perceived imperfections, or plays into some imbalance or even OCD behavior where you spend far too much time and mental energy thinking about your diet or training at the expense of other parts of your life - then it can be a negative thing.
I really like Brooke Erickson. She's very positive and she seems to be a balanced person with a full life outside of lifting. I'm spending less time online these days in general, but she's one of about three women I like to read regularly. She's the first person I heard say, "My life is my show." That really resonates with me. I'm training for my life. Love it.
For the women putting up lots of sexy shots of boobs and booties (Michelle Lewin's FB would be an example). - She's got a beautiful shape, but most of her content is geared toward a male audience, IMO. And she's making a living from her pictures which cross over from fitness mags to posing for Playboy. She's the equivalent of a pin-up girl who lifts. It has less appeal for me personally, because it doesn't help me with my lifting. Not trying to put her down. I appreciate Michelle Lewin's physique from an aesthetic/ artistic point of view BUT ...
I'm more interested in people like Jen Comas Keck - Her content comes from a more health related/ athletic / educational point of view and is geared toward women who lift.
Put another way - When she's older, I'd be happy for my daughter to follow people like Jen Comas Keck, or our own Dani Shugart! But not so thrilled to see her putting up the boob and booty pics, or spending a lot of time following or looking up to women who are all about that. There are lines. Does that make sense?
