Hi. I am a 30-year old lady. I work-out every day. However, I only do cardio and avoid weights. I have heard that women should avoid weight training as it could cause too much muscle gain. I have seen female bodybuilders who look as muscular as men and it makes me scared to take up weights. Is weight training bad for women?

Women should definitely not avoid weight training. It’s one of the biggest misconceptions out there. Its benefits are immense. It can keep osteoporosis away, improve flexibility, posture, strength, endurance and also improves cardiovascular health. And women who are scared that they will start looking like muscular caveman can rest assured that will never happen. Muscle hypertrophy, the kind we see on male bodybuilders is usually fuelled by testosterone. A woman’s body on the other hand secretes only about 1/100th of the amount of this hormone and unless a woman takes steroids, it’s impossible for her to look that bulky!
