5. Lifting weight is important, people. And we are not talking about barely lifting those 5-pound weights. We are talking about 3-4 sets of 8-14 repetitions. And lets get one thing straight- you are not going to get all bulky. Women just dont have enough testosterone to make that possible. Unless you change your mind and go to bodybuilding contest instead of the beach. Dont forget to wait at least one minute between the sets!
