The Essential Barbell Exercises Every Woman Should Master

By: Lauren Mazzo


“Slowly but surely, women are taking over the weight room. They’re realizing that, no, lifting weights doesn’t make you bulky—and there are some serious mind-body benefits to picking up the heavy weights.

But even if women are conquering their fear of the weight room, it doesn’t necessarily mean they’re taking full advantage of everything in there. Dumbbells and kettlebells are a bit more approachable. But barbells? TBH, they can be a little intimidating to tackle on your own, even for the most confident gym-goer. That’s why Alex Silver-Fagan, Nike trainer and creator of the Flow Into Strong program, created the book Get Strong for Women, which covers everything you need to know about strength training for your healthiest body ever.”

“Bed-Stuy Twenty Five” — (Preview)

I recently moved to Bed-Stuy and wanted to photograph and share some of the people I have met in the neighborhood to show the inclusion and diversity here “by the content of their character.” – Martin Luther King Jr.

As neighborhoods change, often the history and the people who made it special are overshadowed by whatever the current buzzword is for the next neighborhood people want to move to.  Something that is a part of NYC culture it seems.

I’ve lived in many different states, cities and even different parts of NY and for me, Bed-Stuy has been the most magnetic, friendly and real.  Sure it has its challenges. There is no perfect neighborhood, apartment, job, etc. but it has an honesty and a genuine nature that so many other parts of NYC simulate.

Project includes: shop owners, postal workers, people I met off the train, in the park and playing chess and just walking around in the neighborhood.
