I am a 26 year old woman. I want to be strong and I want to be fit, but I don’t want to look like a man. Many women are under the impression that if they lift heavy that they will start to get muscles like a man. You look at the incredibly lucrative weight lifting champions who are women and you begin to think that you are going to look like that. I would like to begin by saying that at the moment I am afraid to lift heavy, because I am 5 months pregnant, and that’s the only time that women should really be avoiding heavy lifting. Other than that, women really shouldn’t be afraid to do some heavy lifting! I would love to explain why women shouldn’t be afraid to lift heavy.
