Come on Girls, Train Like the Big Boys! (Part 1) :

Most often that not the female population desires that lean and tone physique.

However, females tend to avoid weight training like the plague. Reason being, they fear that they will get too bulky or look like one of those female bodybuilders.

They tend to think a female bodybuilder's physique is just a matter of reps, and gaining some serious mass is "just around the corner".

This however is physiologically impossible, the hormonal makeup of females does not permit this. Sorry to burst you bubble ladies, a bodybuilders physique is not "just around the corner".

A more suitable phrase would be "Take two of these and call me in the morning".


The female bodybuilders physique with a significant amount of lean muscle mass is only attainable through the use of anabolic substances.

They turn to steroids in order to put on that quality mass, that naturally the female body is incapable of producing.

We all heard that females should religiously train with a high repetition range when lifting weights. Is lifting heavy a bad thing? Does lifting heavy translate into me getting big?

The answer to both of these questions is no. High repetition training will result in sarcoplasmic hypertrophy (size is increased due to fluid accumulation) resulting in that pumped appearance.

While training in the lower range rep range will yield more muscular fiber hypertrophy.

Your probably thinking, didn't he just state that I wouldn't get big, but hypertrophy of my muscles will be the result. How does this make sense?
