Lifting heavy weights will not create big bulky muscular women. This crazy myth is one of the biggest misconceptions in the fitness industry. It requires a heck of a lot of work and bio-chemical alterations in the neuro-endocrine system for big bulky muscular women to occur. As a result, this societal perpetuated myth has created apprehension and fear in the minds of women.
