"How Can I Tell if My Weights Are Heavy Enough?"

There’s a very simple trick. Basically, pick up a bunch of free weights with one hand until you find the heaviest one that you can still, well, pick up and do a move with. (So, one bicep curl, if that’s what you’re going for. Or one chest press. Whatever move you’re hoping to practice with). “Once you know the heaviest one you can lift, you’ll want to choose a weight for your actual reps that’s around 60 to 70 percent of the weight of your heavy one,” says Justice.  
So let’s say that you can lift a 15-pound weight in one arm at least once without falling over, but a 20-pounder is too much.  Do the math: 65 percent of 15 pounds is 9.75 pounds, so try doing your reps with 10-pound free weights. Worried that’s too heavy or will get you jacked and bulky? Seriously, don’t. Read this inspiring piece on The Beauty of Lifting Heavy Weights, and then check out 4 Myths About Strength-Training, Busted! and 7 Tips for Strength-Training Newbies. Feel better? Great. Now back to the question at hand.
Keep in mind that how many reps you do can be just as important as how heavy your weights are, explains Justice. If you want to increase strength, go for 1-8 reps per set. If you want to build muscle, go for 5-12 reps per set. And if you want to improve muscle endurance, go for 12-20 reps per set.
"I’m an advocate of the 8-15 rep sets, as they help develop a combo of strength and muscular endurance," says Justice. "When you go over the 20-rep range, you hit a point of diminished returns"—especially if your form is flailing.

like not even in a witty way
if you actually feel guilty for eating reasonable amounts of food and even unreasonable amounts of food at times (heaven knows i sometimes do haha) you don’t need feminism you need to seek help 

Feminism isn’t going to cure your eating disorder.

and eating disorders aren’t linked to your gender! yeah, women are more likely to have them because of chemicals and hormones and other sciencey things i don’t understand, but men can have them to and personally i don’t care what chromosomes you have, if you have a serious mental illness, for the love of God, SEEK HELP

psych grad currently working in mental health here, i just want to say that you’re all wrong and express my disappointment in your ignorance
first off, the person in the picture is not saying ‘i need feminism because i have an eating disorder’, she’s saying she associates eating with feelings of guilt and god knows many women, including myself, can relate. this feeling of guilt ALONE is in no way indicative of a mental disorder so you should feel silly for making that assumption in the first place. such guilt, however, IS for the most part the result of living in a society that values and forces on women an unattainable standard of thinness, and shames women for displaying pretty much any kind of appetite whether it’s for food or sex or money or power
second, many psychological disorders are ABSOLUTELY influenced by society, culture and environment. genetics and biological factors do play a vital part in causing EDs, yes, but it is a VERY WIDELY ACCEPTED FACT in both the academic and professional community that sociocultural and environmental factors also play a significant role in causing EDs.
don’t believe me? maybe you’ll believe the American Psychological Association, the world’s largest and most esteemed association of psychologists. (x)
or maybe you’ll believe this study that found that 38 months after their first exposure to western media (the same media that currently overexposes us to portrayals of idealized thinness) in the late 90’s, Fijian women (whose culture originally appreciated larger bodies) experienced a sharp rise in disordered eating (x)(x).
now, no one is saying that feminism can cure eating disorders, that’s a ridiculous notion, but it certainly attempts to dismantle the systems that contribute to high rates of EDs in women
and finally, let’s be real here, the person who made that edit and most of the people who are reblogging this and agreeing absolutely don’t give a damn about this girl’s wellbeing and mental health, they’re just looking for any excuse to shit on feminism. so fuck all you assholes and your faux caring bullshit :)
