I asked my trainer about this when I started because I had heard that I should do more reps instead of increasing the weights. He said it wasn't true and that I would not bulk up because of the increased weights. For strength and everything else he was for increased weights. He also said women did not have to work out differently than men. Of course he is bulked up. If I start looking like a body builder I'll let you know. Mary
