This one older women (shes 59 I think) works out at the PL gym with me and I had a lengthy conversation with her. Shes quite strong I would assume if shes planning on competing internationally. She was telling me about her health and how she got a bone density test done. She told me that the results came back saying she has the bone density of a young woman. Doctors should be encouraging heavy lifting not shunning it!

Yes, I'm almost 47, went to my female DR, she asked what I was doing for my bones, I said I powerlift....her reaction was priceless...(yes, she actually knew what powerlifting was)....

she said "fantastic, you doing about the best thing for bone density a woman could do".....then she asked if I did steriods....I told her no, but thank you...LOL.
