A powerlifting woman has told men how she feels about them telling her not to get "too big" in a TikTok video – and her fans love it.

User @dreadliftz posed a question to male gym-goers who approach her while she's working out "and love to give unsolicited advice" to women that lift weights.

In the clip, she says: "What exactly happens when we get too big, Jonathan?"

"Do you stop being attracted to us? Do you stop cat-calling us, do you stop staring at us in the gym?"

"Because if that's the case I'm going to get SWOL as f***."

In the caption, she joked that most men only stare at her in the gym because "I’m warming up with their max set".

Her video has been "liked" more than 18,000 times and hundreds of fans have left comments answering the question themselves.

"No, they stare harder and do that thing where they pretend their lats are so big they can’t put their arms down," commented one viewer.

"Once a woman gets too big she can reach everything on the top shelves and open all the jars," joked a man.

A female fitness fan said: "Literally my motivation to get SWOL."

"Guess I’m turning into HULK then," quipped another.

But a fellow female powerlifter claimed it’s not just men who give this unwanted advice about bulking up, noting: "I have been told this same thing from female friends and trainers."

This comes after a furious powerlifter claims she was told to leave a gym because she was accused of "showing too much skin" and being distracting to teenage boys.

Gabi Goddard says she wearing shorts and a sports bra and shared a picture of her outfit.
