will lifting weights make me bulky?

I am lifting weight and trying to tone up but don't want to get big and you know looking like a man

No, women don't and can't produce naturally enough testosterones to build big muscles or get bulky so don't be afraid of training like a man.

Weightlifters do different exercises to gain MASS......Just make sure your exercise routine is balanced and you should be alright.

....Talk with a trainer or coach to get better information and ideas.

I found an exercise program called Old school new body. It has an extreme amount of information that is valid for all ages. You have to pay for the advice but only cost a dollar for a one week trial, after that it's like 29 or 39 bucks, But if what you seek is to understand just a little more about weight lifting for girls I'd just google it.

depends on the types of exercises your doing with them, stick to light weights around 1-5 pounds... no higher. I'm a boy and I lift 3 pounds for each arm 20-30 minutes a day. it keeps me fit and I don't get bulky :)

Girls can lift heavy weights and they won't bulk up like men.

I lift heavy weights and I'm still shaped like a woman. There's no such thing as toning up- you are building muscle. Muscle gives the body shape. Unless you take steroids you will not look like a man.

Women wont naturally become bulky. Youd have to be on hormones.
