There was a time when strength training and women would never have been thought to go together. That is no longer the case, as more and more women are reaping the fantastic benefits of strength training. However, most women still do not strength train correctly (and likely many men as well). If you were to spend just a few minutes in a busy gym, you would likely find many women who are performing rep and rep with the lightest dumbbell, afraid to lift anything heavier. A popular myth is that lifting anything heavier will leave them looking like big and bulky, like a body builder or a linebacker. That is simply not true and, definitely, a myth.
