Strange question for the ladies who lift?

Well, there is no way to ask this non-embarassingly so I'm just going to ask it.

Do any other ladies get headlights while lifting?

Last week was my first week learning to lift and my entire time at the gym my headlights are on. I wear a sports bra and tank top or Tshirt but you can still see my headlights. It's kind of embarassing! I am not cold or turned on so it's an unvoluntary thing.

    I really haven't noticed and honestly I don't really care. I'm there to lift and so should everyone else.

    you can try wearing 2 bras or buy the ones that have the removable padded cups and double up on the padding in one bra. both work!

    Oh I don't plan on stopping because of it. If it keeps happening I'll just learn to live with it. I was just curious if other experience it to see if it's normal. During lifting my chest is quite sensitive too which is even more annoying!

    yep. totally. And they're not small either. At this point I just own it. I'm there to workout, do my deal, and go home... not to worry about any of the yahoos who feel the need to be looking that close.

    ^^ yes this was my plan too. I just wanted to know if it was normal. Thanks!

    yep. it seems to be involuntary, like a heartbeat. sometimes i was concerned about poking my trainer's eye out. for him it was an occupational hazard!

    ^^ LMAO
  • Yeah, when I work out, I get that, too. It's how I lure my hubby to races! LOL He enjoys hanging out near the finish line and cheering on the finishers (aka enjoying the view).
  • I never noticed when lifting (I'll look tomorrow morning lol), but I definitely know it happens while running. I don't care about the nips, but I do care about the perverts. I think guys driving by may take more liberties than a guy you see every day at the gym. I sometimes slip bra cups into my sports bra for extra padding. I also figure if they're sticking out that hard, they could probably get chafed easily, so that's another reason I want something soft against them.
