if you try to be what everyone else thinks you should be, you'll be a pale imitation of your potential.
As a guy in the lifting space, I heard a few tropes by old dudes at the gym. When I'd deadlift as a teenager, I was “going to snap my shit up”.
When I would squat, “I shouldn't squat bellow parallel for your knees.”
There is nothing worse than some unsolicited advice.
But nothing that I mentioned compares to the daily antagonism many women face in gym settings. I've literally overheard conversations by trainers telling their clients that if they lifted heavy they “would get too bulky.”
Or that lifting heavy “makes you look manly.”
At Raskol, we firmly believe in the power (and personal right) for self expression. You define yourself and the only opinion that matters when it comes to your body, is you.
Let everyone run their own race and respect their journey.
Which is why I loved the response when we previewed Muscle Mommy.
It takes a lot of courage to break away from following the crowd and being your own person.
Immediately our strongest lifters, like our Raskol Athlete Jessica Buettner (who's going to deadlift 600lb this year), loved it.
However out of the almost 400 comments, I did notice a handful of insecure little boys trying to make snarky comments about the tee.
Good. I like to see these wannabe macho lads get petrified. To get positively shook at the thought of a strong woman. It means we're accomplishing our core mission.
2 weeks ago we had our March launch and all our Muscle Mommy tees and crops immediately sold out:
Both were highly sought after items with many wondering when they would be back.
Well...they are back in stock.
We've also restocked our website and listed our LAST Tie-Dye Shorts that we were holding back for exchanges/returns. There are a few hundred in total. Once they are gone, they are truly gone.
Additionally we have the arrival of our much anticipated Raskol Performance Socks. Coming in 3 unique triple packs, each set features our iconic designs on durable high quality socks.
In all, this represent a sizeable restock of popular items, as well as some highly anticipated new ones.
