Hey guys :) Just got a question, I do exercises 3 times a week and I exercise gym and running. But i'm woman and i dont want to look really muscular like man ;/ even now i have really wide shoulders ( after 2 month of gym- after only pumps lol) and if i only do exercise and don't have a diet with a lot of protein ( pasta, rice and chicken etc) and keep exercise on gym ( it means pumps and some exercises with dumbbells) will i only get wiry but not really muscular?? because it doesn't fit to woman ;D Really i need help, holiday are coming and i dont know if should keep do it, change something or stop it ;| I get muscular really fast...
Even female bodybuilders tend not to be particularly muscular, due to much lower levels of testosterone. So long as you maintain a healthy amount of body fat, you shouldn't become ripped or anything.
I would, however, recommend building muscle in certain areas, particularly legs. Increased muscularity in the lower body can help create disparity between the two halves, making your upper body appear slimmer by contrast.
Deadlift for the booty, squats for quads, calf raises for calves (lol), etc. Lunges and whatnot aren't a bad idea, either.
Don't worry about becoming too muscular. If it were that easy, every guy would be buff!
