Strength training makes bigger muscles in women

Many women think that if they lift light weights, it can make them look muscular and bulky! This is far from the truth! That’s because women’s hormones (estrogen) are different that men’s (testosterone) and no matter how much weight a woman lifts, her muscles will not get bulky. Only professional women bodybuilders or athletes, will gain big muscles because they take various supplements and male hormones. A typical exercise routine consisting of light weight bearing activities will not produce bulky muscles in women.

What strength/weight training does is produce stronger and more toned muscles, and can actually help burn body fat, improve posture and prevent osteoporosis.
