My friend (from years ago) Roy Pumphrey is always good for some inspiration for workouts.
I know women who worry about bulking up. Hell, I’d love to bulk up like Ronnie Coleman. But I’ll settle for being strong.
There was a great sci-fi novel, Falling Woman by Pat Murphy that included meditations on being strong. It was about an archeologist, and was marvelous. And then there’s GI Jane.
