Well my whole thing was I didn't think bulky meant jacked or looking like a man. I thought it meant looking fat and athletic, stocky. I mean, if you are already fairly stocky, I thought maybe it might make you stockier. Like how you see these really heavy guys with giant calves from bike riding or hiking, only you'd get giant shoulders to go along with it because now you're doing your upper body. That's all I ever thought it meant. I never thought any ordinary woman would ever look like a muscle man without steroids. I think lots of muscles on a slender woman looks great. I just figured if you don't already have a tendency toward slenderness, that you might just enhance your stockiness and figured that's what women were trying to avoid.
