Work with what you've got

You know how job descriptions often list that you need to be able to lift 25-40 pounds?

I'm considering capitalizing on this in my cover letters.

I've been lifting weights since the 6th grade. Not consistently, mind you. But I'm pretty tough for a woman of my stature.

I can lift more than 40 pounds, employers. How ya like me now?

I think I will stop short of submitting a photograph of my gleaming biceps along with my cover letter. Besides, I don't own a camera.
