Re: CrossFit womanliness

One other point from a guy's perspective. Not saying this is why he doesn't like your calluses, but callused hands don't feel that great when rubbing certain *objects*. Again, I think CF women are awesome so I would deal with it, but it could be a source for his problems.

That's easily resolved by filing and and good hand cream

Re: CrossFit womanliness

And that was why I suggested trying to compromise a bit. He needs to realize that calluses come with the territory, but it's not that outlandish for her to try and minimize them.

Really? The only time I can feel my wife's callouses are when I'm touching them with my fingers, any other time feels just like a hand.

Re: CrossFit womanliness

My wife is a stay at home mother of 2 of my beautiful babies.


Yesterday we loaded and unloaded 100 2x4's of various length and 50 sheets of drywall out of a pickup truck.

It made me proud and happy that she was the only wife/ girlfried of any of my co-workers (I'm a fire-medic too), that I could think of, that would do that and be happy about doing it.

We CF togther, she usually kicks my butt and it makes me love her even more


OP- I'm suprised you can date a cop, being a firefighter and all....

I will await the Grandmaster of Sarcasm (aka Jamie Skibicki) to arrive for a rebuttal to that one.
And thanks, Carolyn!

Um.... I think the OP was trying to do exactly that when the conversation started to go down hill.

Re: CrossFit womanliness

I can't say the butt-burn went over too well. Timothy, my husband, gets upset anytime I get a scar - well, more disappointed than upset, I guess. I still think scars are cool...

I dunno; it depends on the guy and I think they all have different things that makes "feminine" for them. I have super short hair and LOVE it. Timothy loves it. I have a single friend who only goes for the LONG hair on chicks. Whatever.

I know that for me, training for performance alone doesn't work with all the other priorities in my life. So I've gotta watch the BF% and scrub down the calluses and try not to get scrapes, and that's frustrating when I'm trying to train hard - but training is only a small % of my day. For the rest of my life - and the part that matters more to me - taking a little care during exercise pays off.

Oh, and showering after a workout gets me points on the femininity scale. Bonus points if I wax. LOL.

Re: CrossFit womanliness

I'm just playing devil's advocate. Her original post was a question of when, and if, a women loses her femininity. It quickly became a "Find a new man!" thread. Just trying to slow the train down a bit. Not saying he's right, just trying to get some debate going.
