Does weight lifting make women bulky?

Is it ok for a woman who doesn’t want a bulky look to lift weights?

If yes, then what is the best way to lift weights without developing a masculine look.

The response of a person’s body to weight lifting depends on their testosterone levels. Most women are fine to lift weights without becoming bulky because they won’t respond in a masculine manner.

Rather, they will tone and harden their muscles rather than bulking them. The exception to this rule is if a person has exceptional genetics or is taking steroids.

In most cases, a woman lifting weights will result in a sexy, athletic body figure – not a bulky one. ​

However, if you are part of the genetic minority of women who do bulk up from weights, try and include more cardio and high rep weight lifting in your workouts rather than just focusing on heavy lifting.
