is fucking fear in the scaredy hole.

I basically lift fairly heavy, mostly in the 6-10 rep range. All the time. That's just what works for me.
I guess what I am always most concerned about is when someone asks that blanket question of "should women lift light with more reps?". I cringe when I hear that, because what it essentially tells me is that the asker has heard this drilled into his/her head because of some archaic stereotype. If the question had been something like "I'm a woman, and I want to achieve X goal. What kind of program should I follow?", that would be totally different. But when someone just narrows the question down to "should a woman X"...that alarms me, as if we're a different species altogether. That's like saying "should I put high octane gas in my car?" There's not enough information. What kind of car? How are you driving it? Where are you driving it? What kind of results do you want your car to have when you drive it? Etc.
