Getting Girls to Lift Weights

Paul Cassell blogs about the problem of ACL injuries in female athletes.  I have a simple solution that will never work.  Make girls lift weights.  It's really that simple.  It's banal to those in the know to note that load-bearing exercise (i.e., weights; none of that pilates or Yoga stuff) strengthens ligaments. 

But have you ever tried getting a girl to lift weights?

"I don't want to look like a guy" or "I don't want to get too muscular" in all their various forms is all you'll hear.  As someone who has lifted for years, I only wish it were that easy!  It actually takes years to build a muscular physique.  I beat my head up against a wall having that conversation with my wife.  I gave up.  Some things are too culturally ingrained in the female psyche.

So, as is often the case, there is a simple solution to a major problem.  But the solution will never work.  Go figure.
