I found a great article on the benefits of strength training that I wanted to share with all of you. Many women are hesitant to begin a weight training program due to the fear of bulking up or not knowing where to begin.

Women lack the hormones that guys have (mainly testosterone) that allows them to bulk up by weight lifting.
