I've had quite a few people warn me against bulking up. I was bulkier before! All those women I used to think of as "examples of women who lift weights" who have very low body fat and huuuuuge muscles and may not look traditionally feminine are also taking steroids. Women do not look like that naturally. We don't have the testosterone for it. Lifting heavy weight makes us strong and emphasizes our curves while protecting our bones, so we don't fall apart as we age. Win-win.

I love muscles-just love them and I have no fear of looking like a man. Its just not in our make-up. Unless I take steroids-which I would never!

I do a bit of lifting when I actually get round to exercising. I'd like more muscles, all my shape is fat even tho I'm thin if that makes sense. I think a healthily muscled woman looks great because they are healthy. I do it alongside a DVD, I find it easier to follow along and know the appropriate number of reps that way. I've tried doing on my own but I either push myself too far, give up too easily or run out of motivation after a few times. Anyone got any suggestions for good weights DVDs? Most DVDs seems more cardio or Pilates/yoga orientated.
