    Ha!! That's how I wear my hair when I bench.

    I prefer to think of it as the I-Dream-of-Jeannie look. :lol:

    I meant a high ponytail like you did.

    I look really cute with my hair in a high ponytail. :girly:

    I take my hat off and let my hair just lay behind me on the bench . . . I guess that might be kinda gross if I stop and think about all the germs and stuff . . .

    I think pigtails are cute, especially under a hat. You could do very low pigtales or braids, so that they come out right behind/under your ears and just done loosely so they aren't too tight.

    Speaking of germs, I always wipe off the bench before I use it.

    I wipe off the exercise mats too.

    I wear two pigtails (towards the back). One on each side. It's not sexy but it is kinda cute. AND, it keeps me from having to position my head funny. :lol:

    i wear the so called gay madonna thing :lol:
    i thought of it more as cute though. it doesn't have to be right on top of your head, just high enough to keep it off the bench.
    pigtails are cute. they would like cute on you :)

    I do the pigtails. Sometimes I braid them. I really don't care what I look like , I just want it out of the way and to be comfortable.

    You don't know who Madonna is?

    She's Brazilian. She has an excuse for not choking on our toxic pop culture.

    Aah. I thought Madonna was the most famous woman in the world.

    I guess I was wrong.

    I would love to wear my hair in low piggies or braided but when it's rubbing my neck while I'm training, it drives me batty!! I have found these new hair clips called "Octopus". It just clamps your hair but it lays flat against your head and I found I can lay my head down right on the clip and it doesn't dig into my head or hurt at all. I got sick of wearing my hair in an "I dream of Jeannie" tail. My hair is getting longer and it's starting to pull my hair out where the band is so I had to do something different!

    Way back when I had long-ass hair, I never had problems benching, but I always had to flip it over the bar when I was squatting.
