I have been involved in the fitness/bodybuilding industry for many years, and I have never thought it strange to see or train a lady with weights. (Believe me some ladies are strong). In fact I have had ladies as training/spotting partners.
The following is an extract from an article in T-Nation
We’re not women trying to look like men. We’re women who want to express strength, resilience, dedication, and beauty through built, but natural physiques. The perception of female bodybuilding has been tarnished by pro bodybuilders who forfeited the look of a healthy female figure in order to go pro, become victims of fetishism, and garner attention by making muscle look grotesque instead of gorgeous.
We don’t want any part of that freak show. A hard female body can be accomplished with sweat, solid nutrition, good supplementation, and the right mindset.
And we’re tired of dispelling the myths. We are tired of having to reassure other women that weight training is not going to make them massive like competitive female bodybuilders.
Think, for a moment, how much better off we’d be as a society if women wanted to make their bodies healthier with weight training. And think of all the women who’ve been resistant to it because they’re afraid of looking manly. Yes, it’s a silly fear, but that image – that association between steroidal women and the word bodybuilding – still needs to be retired. It’s outdated and not enough women know it.

You really make it seem so easy together with your presentation but I to find this matter to be really something which I think I would by no means understand. It kind of feels too complex and very wide for me. I am taking a look forward on your next put up, I will attempt to get the hold of it!
