Here is some proof that you will not get big or bulky from lifting heavy weight.
Here I am doing a 255lb deadlift and a 100 lb Shoulder Press at 135 lbs. I have a HARD time gaining muscle. It doesn’t matter how heavy you lift, women do not have the ability to put on muscle mass like men…unless they are on drugs and eat like a horse or make up .0001% of the population.
I can’t help but get irritated when I read comments that celebrities like Kelly Clarkson don’t like lifting weights because it makes her “too big.” This has everything to do with DIET and NOTHING to do with her training program.
To get your hands on some great weight training routines, check out an issue of Muscle and Fitness Hers, Oxygen, Bodybuilding.com or my all time favorite, Layne Norton’s PHAT Program found here: PHAT (Advanced).
