Awesome post :) I love lifting weights - currently lifting 26lb kettlebells and sometimes 53lbs... I tend to gain muscle quite quickly, I guess because of a history in gymnastics? Anyway, I was telling my boss what I did and she was horrified and scared I'd get massive muscles (I wouldn't care if I did, its better than massive fat!)... and said she used to lift weights and got huge biceps. Now I don't think they were 'huge' but I guess she also is rather muscular. What would you say to someone who HAS built muscle in the past that they didn't like... which has put them off weights for ever?

I do bulk up from any kind of exercise. If I run my legs get big bulky muscles, if I lift weights my arms get big masculine muscles. Crunches give me a well defined 6 pack instead of the flat stomach other women have. What could be causing this? I am and have always been normal weight. Could I have excessive testosterone for some reason?? Is there any way I can gain strength without having this appearance?
