Strong Review For Strong Curves
"And at the top of mountain, if there’s one message I’ve routinely championed it’s this:  women should lift heavy things."—Tony Gentilcore

[Note:  Tony Gentilcore review's a book, Strong Curves, in the above article.  I have not read the book so I have no opinion, yet.  The reason for the re-post is the subject.  If another woman tells me they cannot lift heavy weight because they get "too big" I may run into the concrete wall as fast and hard as I can.  (I realize some of you would love to see that!)  This "too big" phenomenon only happens to women.  HOW CAN THIS BE?  Never has a man approached me, a man filled with Testosterone mind you, and claimed he was lifting a heavy weight and he got too big.  Only woman have this "problem".  Perhaps this book can shed some light on the topic.–George]
