You probably asking how come women don’t get bulky, or gain the same amount of muscle that guys do, by using our lifting programs?
Well, getting bulky is actually hard for anyone to do, regardless if you are a guy or a girl.
Getting bulky doesn’t happen on accident, because muscles don’t just grow by themselves.
Females are even less likely to put on muscle from exercise alone.
The reason for this is simple.
Women do not naturally produce the sufficient amount of testosterone to build large muscle gains.
Now I know you’ve probably seen girls that look bulky at the gym.
