Why you so want to be a part of this.


Hi.  This eileen, and this is the Deadlifts and Dresses story.

One evening, while spending mindless time on Facebook, I received an IM from a young, slightly buzzed dude.  He gushed that he loved to see pictures of women doing lifts.  He confided that many guys out there loved the same thing.

While this news was not a revelation, I sent him off to bed and thought, “I can do that!  I can provide!”.

By morning, the idea for a Deadlifts and Dresses Facebook page was born and in three minutes or less, created.

Deadlifts and Dresses celebrates women who love to lift.  We are women who are enchanted with moving heavy objects off the ground.  We want to get stronger, improve our conditioning, and  work our bodies and minds to the fullest to achieve our personal bests – no matter how or where we lift. Whether we are 25 or 75.

We pumice the calluses on our hands as often as we shave our legs. We drip sweat, get covered in chalk, and admire those”bulky” glorious muscles that shape our bodies from doing what we love.

We have big butts and legs.  We have real shoulders.  We are not afraid of being able to kick your ass, but we hope you are challenging enough that we can’t.

And when we wash off the chalk, shave the calluses and our legs, wrap a towel and relax, we rock that dress like no women you have ever seen.

We love who we are and what we look like.  Enough to strut our gorgeous stuff to the world.

That is the Deadlifts and Dresses 2011 Calendar.

      The idea is to contrast between the strong, sexy chick doing a deadlift – in her gym clothes – and the strong sexy chick in a dress. But I have a feeling we will get pictures of women doing deadlifts in dresses and we will have to decide once we see them.
