Name:Lifting Heavy Things
Posting Access:All Members
Community description:Strength training for all levels, goals, and abilities
Lifting Heavy Things is a strength training community. Simple enough, no? We are open to people of all levels, goals, and abilities. Topics of discussion include:

1. Techniques, both sharing something nifty and asking for ideas. Please note that despite the name, strength training is not merely about lifting stuff. We welcome ideas for bodyweight training, weight machines, and all forms of strength and resistance training.

2. Equipment: recs, requests for recs, cautions, etc. Please, no direct sales.

3. Nutrition advice specifically related to strength training. Please note, we are not a weight-loss comm. Out of respect for those who find diet talk triggering, please put nutrition posts behind a cut.

4. Other general topics related to strength training. A good rule of thumb: if you're not sure your post belongs here, ask the mod. I won't bite. Probably.

And the rules:

1. VERY IMPORTANT NOTE: This community is not meant to replace the advice of a health or fitness professional. You are responsible for your own health and safety.

2. Please respect members' individual goals and levels of training.

3. No personal attacks.

4. I expect you to avoid "-ist" language in general, but please keep a particular eye on ableist and sizeist language.

5. The moderator reserves the right to intervene if behavior, while not specifically violating these rules, is proving disruptive to the community. I will attempt to resolve the matter in a way that best serves everyone's interests, but ultimately, if I tell you to knock something off, knock it off.

Your moderator is [personal profile] cereta, and I can be reached through a Dreamwidth PM.
