Where My Ladies At? Lack of Female Representation in the Weight Room

Whether it was pre-corona when I was lifting six times a week, or now, in the midst of COVID-19, when I go to the gym whenever I can, every time I step foot into the gym, it looks the same: predominantly women on the ab mats and treadmills and men in the weight room.  This was the case last year when I went to Lehigh’s … Continue reading Where My Ladies At?

Weight Lifting: My Mental Health Gains

I first joined a gym two years ago. While my brother would go straight to the weightroom, I would do a miserable 30 minutes on the treadmill and then another 30 doing bodyweight exercises on a mat. This got boring very quickly and going to the gym felt more like a chore than self-care. My brother, catching on to my frustrations, started encouraging me to … Continue reading Weight Lifting: My Mental Health Gains

Setbacks are Part of the Trip: My Updated Lifting Program in Quarantine

I was halfway through my first official powerlifting program when the coronavirus hit and gyms closed indefinitely. For four weeks straight, I trained for six days a week following the hypertrophy phase of my program, which meant performing the same grueling sets back to back with a progressive overload of weight.
