The Most Uplifting And Powerful Message You'll Hear All Week

If you're looking for some motivation to get you through the week or to convince you to go to the gym later, look no further.

Meet Molly Kelly -- a 22-year-old powerlifter who can do a 300-pound squat like it's no big thing. The recent Boston University graduate told People she started weightlifting in college and has since come to love her body.

Kelly, who says she previously struggled with an eating disorder, hopes to inspire other women to love their bodies with a new short video called "Not Just Strong For A Girl," which is a nod to a (sarcastic) "Strong for a girl" tattoo on her leg. Kelly calls the phrase "a really backhanded compliment that a lot of female athletes get, and I think it's a way to undermine female strength."

Instead, she prefers to say "I'm not strong for a girl, I'm just strong." And once you watch the clip below, you'll DEFINITELY agree.
