“I don’t want to be muscular, I just want to be toned.”
I hear this in my nightmares, both waking and sleeping. Seriously, if I had a dollar for every time a woman said this to me, I could retire to a beach somewhere. This is my usual reaction when I hear it:
There is no special “men’s muscle” or “women’s muscle.” Muscle is muscle and responds to “good” stress that forces it to compensate and adapt (grow bigger and stronger).
