Fine portrait shot. You've nailed the lighting. Are the rings part of a special background or did you add that in pp? It looks great.
How did you suspend those weights so that mere wisp of a woman could stand under them? Lol, I better not say that where she can hear me or she'll whip my butt good. She looks fit.
No thought exists without an image. Socrates
Lots of trickery in this shot. The rings are a photoshopped in background.
The picture was taken with the woman holding a bar with no weights on it. I did this to give a realistic effect of her hands wrapped around the bar.
The weights were photoshopped in after the shot.
Just to add a bit more her shoulders were made a big bigger and her waist a bit smaller with my favorite PS tool, filter-distort-spherize.
