Men. About 99 percent of them think that a woman who has a rather large chest has just gotta love it all day, all the time, period. How could she not?! It's so ... Jessica Rabbit! Now, don't get me wrong, large tatas can be fab.

But when it comes to working out with the ladies in tow? Yeah, guess what guys, it's not exactly a walk in the park. In case you didn't notice (spoiler alert: we know you did) there's a lot of STUFF there to keep locked down. Wrapped up. In one place. Running with all that bouncing bounty? Just another hassle on days when a woman doesn't really feel like running at all in the first place. And finding just the right sports bra to keep the gals stationary? Well, call me Princess Jasmine and give me a dancing monkey because the special sports bra that requires is something a lady can sometimes only find in her wildest dreams.

Until you get enough into your workout to forget the minor pain that comes along with toting two bowling balls around on your chest.
