    Edit: Saw you were talking to Shawshank.

    If you want to discuss swimming, then make a thread dedicated to that subject, this is the lifting thread. I'm sure a swimming thread would actually be pretty popular if there isn't one already.
    I'l get my coat....

    I always think that when there's a thread that's mostly for girls, some guys just really really feel the need to swoop in and give advice like we don't really understand what we're doing. I've had some guys talk to me in a such a patronising little girl way about it.

    It's really annoying yeah. makes me more determined to get awesome at lifting. I don't mind advice when I want some but its unwanted most of the time.

    Especially if they started getting attitude-y when you don't take your advice.

    *lifts huge amount of weight* "Was there something you wanted to say to me?"
    "....no."

    Urgh I got some unwanted advice on the pullup machine the other day. He started off his little speech by putting the weight down to 50kg, saying "this will be easier". I weigh a LOT more than 50kg

    I did see a funny thing today though, sometimes this bodybuilder dude (I think he was 2nd in the Norwegian nationals recently) trains at my gym and SO MANY people ask his advice on using the equipment and on exercises. He hardly gets anything done cos people are always harassing him!

    Yeah, I hear the easier thing a lot. I might hurt my ovaries lifting too much weight or something, curse my lady genes.

    Although to lap dance and bake at the same time - that is quite the skill.

    You know there's this stuff all over the internet called porn? It's shocking I know, but some of that stuff actually has women nude and having sex. It'll blow your mind.

    To be fair I think that never stops happening - man or woman. If someone is bigger than you then they automatically assume they know more and better than you.

    I think it's more about what is traditionally a masculine activity. It's the same reason I see women having issues with mechanics and plumbers - they feel that women don't understand as much because it's traditionally a masculine thing.

    Big fan. Love it when a girl asks me to spot her bench and she sinks the bar all the way down into her chest. I think they secretly like the cold metal on their nips.
