For women especially, great shoulders can create a fantastic balance between the hips (lower body) and the rest of the upper torso , accentuating curves to promote the ‘hourglass’ shape.

I caught up with Sue (Metty) Metcalf on the eve of her departure from Australia to take up residence in North America.

People move countries for different reasons – for love, for work, to widen their horizons or to seek a community of kindred spirits. Metty is moving for all of these reasons, but her primary goal is to take her quest for world power domination to the next level.

Sue Metcalf raises the bar Sue Metcalfe raises the bar

Sue is not chasing political power, although her vocation is to campaign for youth justice, and she will continue this advocacy in the USA.  No, Metty is installing herself amongst the world’s biggest community of protein-munching, physical-power perfecters. And she isn’t there to join them, but to lead them!

Whilst these lycra compression tights look great, why is it that womens fashion generally is more colourful and men generally get the boring option of black, navy or red (occassionally). I suppose it might be the case the men are generally not buying more colorful designs.

So you heard it here first, guys and girls we need more colorful lycra so we don’t die of boredom whilst exercising.
