“Strength and growth come only through continuous effort and struggle”

Strength and growth come only through continuous effort and struggle (Napoleon Hill).

Napoleon Hill probably did not mean specifically weightlifting and powerlifting when he said that, but it works here, too 🙂 +++ Napoleon Hill meint  wahrscheinlich nicht speziell Gewichtheben und Powerlifting, als er das sagte, aber es funktioniert auch hier 🙂

Leading by Example – If she can’t see it, she can’t be it.

20×20  (20×20.ie) is asking all sections of Irish society to show their stripes and pledge one small action to increase the visibility of women’s sport 

Here is my contribution. I’m hoping to see more women lifting weights. The benefits for women are for example:

 

  • Lose body fat. Weight training builds muscle, as lean muscle increases so does metabolism.
  • Gain strength without bulking.
  • Decrease risk of osteoporosis.
  • Reduce risk of injury.
  • Improve posture and reduce back pain.
  • Enhance mood and reduce stress.

See you at the squat rack! 🙂
