Watch my client Jessie squat 70kg 20 times!
It’s stuff like this that makes me love training women for strength. I had no idea she was going to do 20. She did 10 last time. But she felt confident on that last set and just went for it. It was a max set after 2×5 at this weight so her depth is a little bit off but what a great set it was. I was so surprised that I stopped counting. Haha.
Women aren’t thought of as strong but they can be and often they are easier to train than men. One of the differences is that women are easy to coach if they are interested in strength training because they come with few hangups. So little of strength training literature is aimed at them that they haven’t read as much BS as the guys usually have. And they are much more open to training the all important posterior chain. Most guys in the gym want to train biceps, chest, and abs.
I tell ya — I love my job.
