Breaking the Myth: "If I lift heavy I'll end up looking like a man!" - because I get so sick and tired of hearing this from women (AND MEN!). There are so many INcorrect mindsets and attitudes when it comes to women and resistance training, and I would love to change them into ACCURATE ones. Unfortunately, men are just as bad as women when it comes to this and many treat them so and cater to their silly attitudes and encourage it, not thinking that a woman can lift heavy or train hard and intense.
I want to be a role model for women to look up to re fitness. Women need to be better educated on the importance of using resistance training to achieve their body and fitness goals. Training with weights should neither intimidate nor scare them. I would like to see the many wrong mindsets among and about women and weight training be replaced by correct information and healthy attitudes.

The idea in most peoples' heads, men and women, is that one can just accidently get huge. Whoops I lifted too heavy of a weight and now I'm Jay Cutler by accident, and too top it off, there's nothing I can do about it. What I point out to women who ask me about resistance training is that men produce 14 times the amount of testosterone that women do, so even If they trained and ate exactly as I do for as long as I've done it, there is no chance they will get as "big" as me. And hell, I'm not even that big.
Next step is to show them Rosie's blog so they can see not only how good she looks, but how intense her workouts are to put both things in perspective for them.

is not the reason females cannot bulk up like men is due to less testosterone? (im sure other things apply but isn't this the main factor?)

Great post. Looks like that would be a very solid article, Rosie. I wish so much that more women would realize this. I think that as we keep making progress in fitness and nutrition being better understood, we'll slowly see a trend in misconceptions decreasing (I sure hope at least).

Damn straight, my girls train exactly the way I do for the most part. I may make a few changes based on development...
They have done HST, DC, Freak and few more modes of torture that I have devised. They have made tremendous progress and I'm pretty damn proud of them. There is still some issues and it has more to do with commitment ie. how far they want to take this but the foundation has been laid.
Unremarkable is no way to go through life... Doug

Love this post! I am relatively new to lifting and starting slow, but I can wait to be lifting some heavy weight. I think being strong is sexy!

Exactly! I've been training for 3-4 years and the past year has been calculated and religious to say the least. All I have to show for it is about 35lbs of muscle over that time period and to add to that, there were several periods of time that my test levels, or synthetic test levels, were upwards of 10-20 times the normal amount found in a healthy man. And women, who have significantly less anabolic activity, expect to lose their feminine appearance from heavy resistance training!?!?! Geeze, people are just ignorant and men are just as guilty of this as women!

This post is what I like to see...women who are not afraid to chip their nails lifting heavy! I have been lifting consistently since Jan 1, 2012 and I have doubled what I could lift when I started. I love it! I have not lost much "weight" but have dropped significant inches and I am so pleased with that!! I follow a program that was designed by a man for the guys and it has helped me tremendously!

Awesome post!!! I like to go up to women that are lifting the pink dumbbells and ask them do you have children?? they proudly say yes!!! (perfect, right into my trap!) Really, humm how old are they? oh 3, or 4,or 5..... blah blah... Then I say, So they are about 20 or more pounds and your lifting/carrying them all day long but then you come in here and work out with two-five pounds. If you can lift/carry them and you haven't got bulky why would you waste your free time? I don't know but something to think about don't you think. ( of course I say it in a pleasant way) It breaks the door and before you know it they are getting serious about their training.

Today women are interesting to make their body with fitness and healthy. But they don't know that how to practice them.

I feel all of you're pain. My beautiful girlfriend (who's father was a RB in college football) has these MASSIVELY powerful legs, and she won't squat (or do any weight training for that matter) because she doesnt want her legs to get "bigger".
