Talking Ladies who lift, what is your clothing size?

I can dead and squat more than my own weight. I wear 'small' whether it's gym gear or say crop tops or girly outfits. Just general talk and curiosity!

Question I think my time has come to cut. What do you say?

Why do you compete?

I'm so inspired by all of you competitors! I don't think I will compete (definitely not ready yet). I'd like to get more involved in some way, but I'm not sure how.

Unhappy not feeling butt workouts in glutes

Hi! I'm working to build a bigger butt while keeping my thighs the same size, or maybe even smaller. Luckily I already have this general body type, as I have long skinny legs with glutes measuring about 38 inches around. A recent problem I seem to be having, however, is I'm not feeling my workouts...

Last week at a training for a certification an obviously seriously anorectic client walked past me and the other trainees. No-one said a word. No-one said a word to her as she checked out and left the studio. I felt angry at myself for saying nothing, but I don't even work there and was...

Staying "lean" year round

Hey ladies- Do any of you have advice for staying lean year round? I know not "show lean" (not that I compete) but is it possible to maintain a lean physique while adding muscle? Maybe not having a 6 pack but a 4 pack while adding muscle and reducing body fat? Or is it not entirely possible to...

First time serious enough to count my macros, but there's a catch - I'm MtF

How does that affect me? I hope this is a decent subforum to throw this topic under - there wasn't a "newbie" one that encompassed both nutrition and the workout program itself. =) So with that premise out of the way - I've been exercising for years, my "peak" was probably in high school...
