Girls and Weightlifting, a Fantastic Combination!

Here is a wonderful article on Florida Highschool Weightlifting.  I have to tell you, I was suprised at first.  But I’ve discovered that women LOVE the Olympic lifts (the Snatch, and Clean and Jerk).

These lifts are Graceful and build a womans body in the way that women want their bodies to look:  Lean, muscular, with strong athletic legs, and defined arms … all without getting too “big”.

 “A lot of girls think if you do it you’re going to get all beefy,” said Alexa DeCristofaro, a senior at New Smyrna Beach High School who won first place in the 199-pound weight class. “Well, you really don’t. If you do it, you get toned, which is different from getting totally muscular.”
