You either lifted it, or you didn't; simple as that. And we're here to tell you... if you do heavy deadlifts, you WILL get stronger. Now, if you have testosterone --real or injected-- running through your veins, you'll also put on some muscle. But drug-free ladies? They just get strong. And in some cases, REALLY strong.

And to varying degrees, each of them have learned things they SHOULD have been taught by their strength and … [Read more...] about The Best of Both Worlds
