i must be the exception to the rule. i get slimmer when i don't do weight training and only do cardio. of course, i'm a very muscular person naturally. i feel like when i do one push up, i grow five pounds of muscle. yeah, i'm not in the best shape i could be, but when i was (cheerleading plus swim team plus being a teenager), i still was gigantic because of all my muscles. sucks to be me.

ok i was at the gym yesterday and i overheard this woman talking about how she doesn't do weight lifting because she is worried she is going to get big...i totally thought to myself, that is so not true.

My wife took a weight training class at college. She lost weight and had more energy then ever before. Plus she had fun doing it. She did get muscular at all, just toned.

FALSE A woman has about one-third the testosterone compared to their male counterparts, which really means that they are not going to bulk up like men do. The women you may see that super big are not doing it naturally. If you’re carrying excessive body fat and building muscle, then you might look a little bulky at first, but if you start to reduce body fat, soon enough you will be able to see lean, defined muscles.
