We often get asked the question by women,"Will I end up looking like a man if I lift weights". The answer is "absolutely not!". We found a great article by Joe DeFranco, Owner, Performance Enhancement Specialists. Here is some of it:  "Much of the difference in muscle mass between males and females is attributed to hormones, specifically, testosterone.  On average, men produce ten times more testosterone than females.  Unless you're a female who is taking anabolic steroids or other male hormones, lifting weights will NOT make you look like  a man!  Also, there is a difference in muscle mass distribution between men and women, especially in the upper body." 

Women, please feel free to get strong!!
