I told my guy friend that I do push ups and lift weights when I workout, and he said it isn't nice for a girl to do that. Thoughts or opinions? :) Appreciate it!

I wouldn't like that

as long as you are happy with how you look i wouldn't worry about it... at least you'd be able to take care of yourself in a fight haha my poor stick arms are worthless....

That dose not sound like a very good friend. He should be happy that you are taking care of youself. Just because that is his preference does not mean every guy thinks that way. I'm almost 6 foot tall some guys don't like it when I wear heels others don't care.

Arm muscles in ladies form differently than in men. They give ladies more becoming female shape. Doing calisthenics like pushups will never make you less feminine, ever; just stronger. Normal weight lifting won't either. And if that is his problem,  you being stronger, you figure out...

I agree with Hannah - what guys like is preference. Personally I prefer stronger women but I'm sure there are guys that don't. You need to do what you want and do what makes you healthy. The part that freaks me out about what he said is that it's "not nice" for you to lift. - Where does that come from?! The 1950s!? Do your pushups if you want to and forget what he said - and while you're at it, do your curls, overhead press and pull ups too! :)
