In the industry we are in, and with such a focus on 'being lean', it is no surprise that everyone is curious as to what their BF is.

Lack of endurance or just weak?

I'm young (23) and I don't seem to have the same endurance in the gym as other women seem to have. But maybe it's just weakness? I see women busting out set after set, all the same body part, while super-setting another exercise, all with seemingly heavy weight. As for me, I pretty much never...
