Quoting Jas ♥:" Elliptical. I also like to use kettles (10lbs each) for squats and lunges. I want to get some weights ... [snip!] ... at what a little weight training can do for a woman's body. If done right, you won't get bulky. Just toned and lifted."
I've done cardio a million times, and I lose weight, but weight lifting really changes my body.
To "bulk up" women just don't have the testosterone. Even men have to REALLY work at it to get massive muscles. Women who look like that either takes testosterone supplements or put in an amount of time to lifting you wouldn't believe.
Trust me! You won't lift and wake up tomorrow looking like Arnold, lol. If you reach a point you like with muscles, then just stop increasing the weights and stick there.
