Why Young Girls Should Lift.
Lifting Empowers Young Women
Weightlifting creates a more stable body physically, mentally, and emotionally.
Weightlifting will increase a girl’s self-confidence.
I have seen young girls accomplish lifts that defy reason. That feeling of accomplishment transcends to other aspects of life. You may have seen Hayley Reichardt's 86k clean and jerk video below, but you should watch it again. You may see her smile, but her face reads perseverance, determination and will power. Girls often seek out others to validate her self worth, sometimes a boyfriend, coach, or family member.
The weight room provides young girls with a place for her to see that she earns whatever she works for. When a girl knows she is good. You will have a hard time convincing her otherwise, and you don’t need to fluff her up.

She is the definition of a champion. ・・・ 16 year-old @haylsbayls__ (-48kg, USA) clean and jerking 86kg/189.6lb to set a new U17 youth as well as Junior American Record in the clean & jerk. Check out our Twitter if you want to see a longer video with the full celebration, the full video doesn't fit on Instagram. Keep in mind that she's under 48kg/106lb -- and check out those sweet red wrist wraps from the @hookgripstore!
