I don't know how many of you are into gymnastics, but I found this clip while doing a "strength" search on Youtube. This girl has, in my opinion, very good gymnastics moves although I am not a gymnastics or acrobatics expert. If you do follow gymnastics, check out the clip; and since "girls will be girls," she does a couple of teasing flexes at the end of the clip for her audience.

the word "teaser" in your comment is really inappropriate, consider the person in the video is a child of 7 years!

in reply to anonymous:
A few days ago, i had gotten into a discussion with Alisa about her children lifting. She assurred me (us) that she did not allow her teenage girls to workout with weights any heavier than 6# dumbells. when you read her remark above, you need to take her attitude about children lifting into account. i think begore you make the sort of comment you have just made, you should know more about the lady who made it. also, you need to know more about the man who suggetsed we take a look at the vid in question. both of these people are involved with BB'ing, and have been for a long time. They obviously, in light of previous posts and personal opinions, have a somewhat different attitude towards body building, but looking for the same results. I praise Alisa for her stand towards young children lifting too much too young, but sadly, it is a fact of life that children are started in strenuous exercise programs at very early ages. Alisa, from viewing her past remarks concerning her own children, is in the camp oposing such pushing. I am definitely with her. Because the man involved here is of the camp that says it is ok to push, and he is among many, children into strenuous athletic endeavors, you are backing him with the accusation that the lady is acusing him of being a pedofile. Cool it! These people are looking at the vid from very different outlooks. I certainly do not look at Avi as a pedophile because he pointed out a vid about a child doing gymnastics. I looked at the flick myself and saw it as entertaining and of interrest to those who would allow young children to participate in potentially damaging athletics. i have been involved in childrens sports for over 30 years as coach and commissioner, and love to watch them "play". I have also done all i could to prevent programs from "degenerating" to lower age groups. Because of my own involvement, i would NOT classify Avi as a pedophile just because he is interrested in watching a young girl performing feats of strength along the lines of a sport she is obviously being allowed by her parents to persue at an age that Alisa and I believe to be too young for the framework of their skeletal developement. Unfortunately, she and I are of a minority in this attitude. Avi is in the business of physical developement and is looking at such a program from an entirely different aspect. Even tho i have some doubts about the advisability for childern to be allowed to push so hard, as does Alisa, i do have an interrest in looking at such a vid and can understand the pride the girl is showing in her developement. Does that make me a pedophile? No way buster. I am involved with children's sports, including coaching young girls from age 7 on into HS. does that make me a pedophile or a pervert. NO WAY. Because Alisa is against such early develpement and has the good sense to voice her position, does that make her an accuser. NO WAY. I hope she oes NOT take your idiotic and dogmatic advice and go away. We need her good sense and level headedness here. It is attitudes such as yours that need to go away.
Sorry this got so long. I got carried away.

Alisa, I did not use the word "teaser." I said that she did a couple of teasing flexes for her audience. I am sure that this seven-year old had no concept whatsoever that someone might interpret her flexing as something sexual, and I can assure you in as strong a language as possible that sex was the farthest thing from my mind when I called her flexes teasing. She was simply teasing the audience with her well-earned muscles. 'Nuff said.

the verb to tease: to tantalize especially by arousing desire or curiosity without intending to satisfy it

As a mother, you can see why that word bothered me.

I know your intentions were not sexual, Avi; but I've read some posts in the past from others that make me wonder, and I'd prefer not to share any material to them that involves a kid, especially using a word like teasing in the description. That's all.

Sorry for the caustic comment in my previous post.
But---I've been visiting this site for about ten years (MAK---since '96---about?) In those years I don't recall anyone saying anything sexual about a child. In actual fact, children very, very seldom came up in any of the posts, in any discussion. In fact I think everyone here has treated the child subject with the greatest respect---almost to the point of being taboo!

Just wanted to clear up what I was 'hot' about.

You know folks what I find unbelievable? I posted the URL of an up and coming young gymnast who seems to possess an unusual amount of strength and who "showed off" her biceps to her audience at the end of her performance.With the exception of Old Timer, did anyone even mention anything about her performance? Did anyone except Old Timer mention anything about her strength? All the posts focused in on the word "teasing." Come on. She was teasing her audience just the same as we all tease people when whe have something special to show off whether it is our athletic skill, our new car parked proudly outside for our neighbors to ogle or whatever. It's too bad I didn't use the words "show off" instead of "teasing." Then maybe people would have commented on her skill and muscularity and not on my choice of words.How about it? What did you all think of her performance? By the way, this is the last time I post anything about someone under 18. In my next post I'll tell you about a couple of women in their early fifties that came into the gym where I work.

Avi: I clicked on your link after seeing how much controversy it generated, and I have to say that my first reaction was: "Ew." She's obviously worked hard, and the gymnastics coach who put the video together certainly had no prurient motives, and, should she stay in gymnastics, she may one day know the glory of having her MySpace photos leered at by folks on the HerBiceps message board.

I think the reason for so few comments on the little girl's muscularity is because by and large, this is a site people visit for sexual stimulation and fantasy fuel. Anyone who visits this board who actually would be sexually stimulated by that video isn't going to comment on it, and instead silently thank you for the masturbation material. It's not that the video itself is pornographic, it's simply because the link came from here and not, say, a gymnastics message board.

As an aside, one of the things that is nice about this board is that it has not been mired down in accusations of pedophilia the way, say, the HerBiceps board or especially Armfan's old board have been. I hope that continues.
