That's awesome watching your wife deadlift while those guys are kicking out their dumbbell curls in the background...Be Proud of That!

I am VERY proud of the intensity she puts into her lifts. Her legs are getting really nice :).

And yes, my gym is filled with pussies.

The best part is that shes extremely feminine. Still wears all pink in the gym..

Then she does that. Its great lol.

If you don't mind me asking, how tall is your wife?

Congratulate her from all of us here, that is impressive.

This is good stuff. Very solid form and she handled it pretty easily.

Thanks, I bought her a pink inzer deadlifting belt for christmas...she used it last night and hit 135x10 :). Off the floor too, not on platforms.

Very nice! I see guys at my gym doing DL reps with 25s....

In my gym I've actually never even seen a woman DL... I see quite a few of them squatting and benching but still haven't seen one DL


And yes, my gym is filled with pussies.

I thought that was all gyms? :clown:

Hahaha...

Yeah, I have never seen a girl deadlift other than doing SLDLs with pink DBs. Shes pretty motivated to get large legs. I put her on a 3 day/wk upper/lower split that rotates 2 exercises per bodypart. One or two intense sets each. Seems to really be working so far. It would be funny if she was the one out of us who had the good genetics for weightlifting. She seems so natural at all the movements I show her and progresses very fast, especially for a girl.

Maybe we should do a wife/girlfriend lifting competition...

Just got my girl to do 155x5 on the DL. Her form is a little off though, she has minor scoliosis that makes thoracic extension harder.

Lol. The difference in height between you two must be comical. :p

Impressive! I know a bunch of girls that exercise regularly, but none of them do anything like a DL!

Haha...I second this. One of my best friends is 6'5'' and his girlfriend is 5'3'', which sounds exactly like mchicia and his wife if I'm remembering mchicia's height correctly.
