    She doesn't make testosterone.
    She doesn't have the hormonal environment necessary to get "big and muscly".

    Tell her not to get all weird about lifting. All my girlfriends have the most retarded mind-sets.
    A few of them have been convinced otherwise and have loved the results from lifting.

    Start slow - machines and low impact stuff.
    Look around the exercise science forum. Plenty of good stuff!

    So what does she want?
    A good circuit covering most major muscle groups would compliment her cardio and pilates is she wants to firm up overall.
    Does she want to target specific areas and let the pilates give her the all round effect?
    More info needed and then we can help you.

    i think i am going to get her to do some circuit trainning. From what i remember about it, it will work out everything and leave you in a lump crying (or maybe thats just me)
