    I wonder how she felt about having those "school girls" posing in the pics with her. I'd have been all, "Get out of my photo shoot or I will toss you weak-ass bitches across the room!"

    But that's just me.

    was very impressed. Cool vid.

    Got to say vids like this motivate me more then the ones of big guys lifting 600+ lbs. I can reason the big guy is bigger then me so it's okay. But she is benching more then me and her squat and deadlift aren't much below my personal bests so I've got no excuse.

    I was wondering what purpose they served as well. It almost seems like they are undermining the female lifters, like they aren't good enough for the pics themselves.

    Wow, Sioux-z Hartwig! She's been at it for a long time now and just keeps getting more powerful. Strong, beautiful and doesn't look like she lives off of egg-whites and oatmeal. I love her!:tucool:

    As for the "schoolgirls": well, they've got to display their talents, too, y'know! Seriously, maybe they were inspired just a little, one hopes.

    I did appreciate that they were in the background, watching intently and clapping and cheering during the lifts.

    My first thought at seeing them in the background was "what a strange juxtaposition...." and figured these booth bunny's weren't really interested in what was going on, just being paid as advertising for some supplement company. That they seemed interested during the lifts, that brought them up in my esteem, but I couldn't help but wonder at being in the photoshoot.

    had a little bit of stereo-type reaction to what he perceived immediately as "eye candy," but who knows, maybe those school girls train hard and are hoping to compete one day.

    I do think it's weird that they were in the photoshoot....I mean, imagine if it were guy power-lifters, and after they'd done these insane lifts and were ready for their accolades, a pair of Calvin Klein model-type pretty-boys marched up to the podium and stood there just being eye-candy.......what's the deal? I dunno, I guess the girls served some marketing purpose, like you said. Just looks strange.:confused:

    Impressive! Thats a 799 raw total at 114, or 7 times BW. Blows my 6.3 out of the water. :o

    With or without a suit? The vid was from a raw meet if I'm not mistaken.. Most PL meets are not raw; DL suits and wraps are allowed.

    Girls were card girls from the Tilted Kilt, sports bar near the meet site. Some feds and promoters like to use card girls to punch up the meet atmosphere. European feds have naked or topless card girls. Different strokes different folks. Most don't care. I don't think Sioux-Z cares, or she wouldn't have included the pic in the video she (or Matt) made and posted.

    I was guessing supplement marketing, but card girl makes sense. I would think that if I was a powerlifter getting my award, I would not want some Calvin Klein models there (great comparison Imelda! That does put it in perspective) in the shot. But then again, there is always that thought process while the photos are being taken "Sure, they look like this, but they can't come close to lifting what I just did. Weaklings!"

    And Cajun does make a great point that if she was bothered by them, they prolly wouldn't be there.

    guesses Sioux-Z just has a better perspective then he would of himself in that situation. Good on her!
