Viewer discretion is advised ( this may come off as sappy ?¿ ) this is unlike me to post a workout video but I'm doing it anyway : I started lifting 3 years ago when I was in highschool. I was only training legs and used the excuse that I was in season and needed to. In reality I just didn't want to get "too big" and didn't want to get "too manly", so I didn't take it too seriously. After a tough breakup I started taking my weight lifting seriously. I didn't want to be the typical girl who ate her feelings. I started doing some research and followed fitness accounts and watched endless YouTube videos for new workouts. Finally I came to terms with the fact that lifting weights will NOT make me manly. And in order to get the body that I've wanted so desperately for so long, will come to me by training everything and not just legs (and eating right of course, which I need to work on cause I love me some sweets). I'm proud of how far I've come but have quite the journey ahead of me, but the point of this post is to show you guys that you can lift weights and not be "manly" but be healthy. And hopefully those of you who had the same thought process as I once did, can see now, that you'll get to where you want to be, but what's the point in the destination if there is no journey ?
And yes these are assisted pull-ups, but it's better than where I started and that's what matters.
