Why You Don�t Need to Fear Bulking Up

When I talk fitness and transformation to women, there's one common concern that always seems to crop up; a fear that lifting weights will make them too manly and muscular. It can be hard to convince women who don't lift weights that they absolutely do want to get very muscular, but they won't look the least bit manly.

Women are designed to look different from men. Our bodies are not naturally inclined to become bulky and masculine. When you see women bodybuilders that look like lumberjacks, you're usually looking at a woman who is taking anabolic steroids. That's a shame because those steroids are extremely unhealthy and downright dangerous. But unless you're taking these steroids, weight training and adding lean muscle won't make you look like a man. I promise. In fact, weight training will bring you closer to the feminine ideal.

There are several physiological reasons why you don't need to be afraid that weight training will make you bulky. I'm going to explain those to you, so that nothing holds you back from achieving an incredibly feminine, incredibly beautiful new body.
