Maybe someone can answer this for me. Why on earth do some men feel the need to ask me if I need help? or Ask are you sure you can lift that? This is one thing that will get my blood boiling especially this one You know women should not lift that heavy? Aren't you afraid that your husband won't think your sexy anymore like he is touching a man?
I just dont understand they dont go up to other men and do this do they? Why should I be any different? Half the time I just ignore them and just glare at them. Why can't I be strong is it because I intimidate them? What gives?
Thanks for the vent.
You can't take some pill and hope your fat will jump off of you like you have the plague. You must work out and eat clean to have a lean, green, fighting machine.

Because they feel intimidated by a strong woman.
Most women I see in the gyms,whether they are serious bodybuilder,powerlifters,or just trying to stay in shape or get in shape,train a lot harder with better form and focus than the average man in the gym.
Just use their negativity to fuel your drive to train harder................it always works for me!! #akicksballs2hu#
Just think,the harder and heavier you train,the more you`ll progress,and you get the added bonus of pissing these clowns off!! ;D
Intimidation for sure. PLEASE you are a gorgeous woman, look like a man??? Not in a million years. You look like a strong, powerful WOMAN. They wish they could lift like you do. I would do what Tim says, use it to fuel your next lift!! ;D
Hi sunshinelynn! those guys are trying to use that as a way to talk to you. Me, when i work out, i put on my mean face...im usually a friendly person, but i have found that if im friendly to the guys there, they just take that as an invitation to hit on me, so now i just give dirty looks. as for criticizing girls with muscle, it has happened to me a few times, but 99% of the time, guys will say, "you look terrific, i need to get my GF to the gym" or something to that effect. it they're ignorant, ignore them!
I think rachelnsd's answer is close to reality! In fact Lynn, dont be negative about that… maybe those are just awkward guys who try to talk to you because you are their kind of girl! I know maybe that's not the right time and the right approach, but i would not have doubt about the intentions of the majority of those guys!
