Why not lift heavy?

I'm posting the following three videos for a reason: to show that, as a woman, lifting heavy does NOT mean getting huge muscles, and that you can be both vegan and strong. :) These are a few of my favorite exercises, and I do them at these weights very often.

Pullup with about 1/3 of my bodyweight hanging from my waist: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=h1IhsHW4drc

Press with almost 3/4 of my bodyweight: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=x2xrP8oBLOs

Swing with almost 90% of my bodyweight: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=h0L54jk0NSM


So lift heavy. Don't be afraid. Your body and your bones will thank you.

Strong is sexy. :)
