I wasn't sure whether to post this here or the PW forum, but I thought this may be more appropriate. So basically my girlfriend weighs 115 lb and after about a year of off and on training she can already squat 175 for 4 and dl (i think) 155 for 4 (maybe more). She doesn't think it's anything special, but I think she should think about competing. Am I really naive, or do those sound like promising numbers for a female competitor in such a low weight class? I'm very impressed with her strength for her size considering she hasn't really done any raw strength training, just Cosgrove's New Rules of Lifting for Women. Her diet's far from excellent, too.
Thanks in advance for the feedback. I'm hoping to get some responses from a few of you who actually compete.
