A common thought amongst women is that lifting more weight will pack on more muscle, making you look like a man.
Fact: It won’t happen because women do not have a significant amount of testosterone, a major sex hormone that’s produced in the gonads in men. It’s largely responsible for muscle growth. Therefore, women are not able to put on muscle like men.
So ladies, get out there and lift some weights. It will help you build lean muscle and boost your metabolism.
