Some women, like some men, can become quite big through lifting weights (generally easier for men though). Other women (probably most) don't get that big, but there will always be a variation.
Men are the same, although in general get bigger easier. You'll see skinny guys who find it hard to bulk up, and other guys who bulk up easily.
My sister was told by someone at her gym the other day that she should do more reps with a lighter weight to "build lean muscle" I had to laugh at that, but I guess her point was that fewer reps at a higher rate are more likely to build bulk??! I'm not sure either way, to be honest, as a lot of it is genetic anyhow...
Personally I do CrossFit so it's all mixed up! I don't really worry about lifting light vs heavy or whatever, I just do what I can for the number of lifts or reps I have to do for the day's WOD!
My thinking is... that if I build muscle and don't lose fat (meaning I over eat) then I'll probably stay the same size or out grow my clothes lol But right now I want to focus on getting stronger. I'm not that concerned about getting big because I've gotten stronger since last year, weigh more and still fit nicely in my skinny jeans
Also, I feel compelled to say that I've never met a man who could outsmart me (except for one occasion where I was half asleep and said something about the amazons living in the amazon jungle, but that's more of a correction anyway) regularly but I've met a few women who could. Not that they could do it regularly...
In all of the universe there is only one person with your exact charateristics. Just like there is only one person with everybody else's characteristics. Effectively, your uniqueness makes you pretty average.
That post sounds like it was written in Chinese and run through an online translator a few times. I ignore all posts like that because most of the time they're written by spammers and blasted over the web to all forums at random having any kind of weight loss/fitness aspect to them.
