Unhappy Weird interaction at the gym/hammer curls for women?

Hi all, Tonight at the gym about 20 mins before closing, a male gym employee/trainer walked up to me while I was in mid-set with my headphones in. He said, "excuse me," and I took out my headphones as I was assuming he was going to tell me the gym was closing soon. Instead, he said, "don't...

Training chest

I've been training for about 5 years and it seems that not many women train chest. This seems really odd to me as I thought a well proportioned physique was deemed superior than out of proportion. Are there any girls that do or don't train chest that could have some input? If you don't train...

so I've been feeling pretty exhausted lately.
