Ask Coach Stevo!

“Hey Coach Stevo, can women get too bulky lifting big weights?”
Can they? Yes. Will they? Very unlikely. Quite frankly, I spend most of my day trying to convince women to either eat a little more or significantly less and that is not a recipe for muscle gain, no matter how many heavy things you pick up off the floor. That’s because like everything else in fitness, muscle gain is 80% what you eat and 20% how you train. Ask any man who’s ever tried to bulk up and he’ll tell you: it’s freaking hard to eat enough to gain lean mass. And men produce many more times the testosterone that women do! You will never get bulky in a caloric deficit. You will never get bulky eating 2000 calories a day. Relax and lift heavy!
