I can't believe it. This bench meet in Bristol Pa says if women enter they have to face the men. I have never heard of this. I think this just a way of keeping women out of the meet. Girls can lift but they don't have the testosterone guys have. What a strange meet. The gym is called Transformations and hear is the number if anybody wants to tell them what they think of this #267-266-0055 or info@pttransformations.com. Thanks.0.

If thats the rules of the meet that the rules. 1 open division for all. Nothing wrong with it as long as it advertised that way from the start.

Becca would probably have a good chance at the Biggest bench of the meet.

I'm a bit confused why you think there is something wrong with it? I am all for women's rights and such, but to get all pissed off because they have one big open class? That's ridiculous.

Posting this kind of stuff on a website you've never been on isn't exactly kosher either...

Its a pilates/yoga based gym so the chicks probably could lift more than the "dudes"

Honestly, the owners were probably just being really lazy about organizing the meet, and they didn't want to be REAAALLY sexist and not have a woman's division at all, so they just looped 'em all together.
