And indeed the full piece, penned by Los Angeles-based Pro trainer Andrew Dixon, goes on to explain in gloriously sensible detail how muscle on a woman looks wonderfully hot!
He also points out how 'pumping iron' will not turn the average woman into Iris Kyle.
It will simply make her stronger, fitter and more self-confident.
He writes: “More and more women are lifting weights and looking amazing. They are strong, athletic and sexy. They don't fear too much muscle, they just eat and train smart. And in my opinion, and probably the opinion of most of the athletic community is, women look sexy with muscle.
“The guys who think they look "manly" probably have never lifted a dumbbell or done a chin-up in their entire lives.
“If you think skinny, weak and dependent is sexy, you may need a psychiatric evaluation. There needs to be a paradigm shift, and its happening.”
Like so many other personal trainers across the world Andrew despairs of the bodybuilding misconceptions and ingrained social constraints which hold so many women back from reaching their full potential and skilfully nails some of the bigger lies about women lifting weights.
He says: “One of the biggest mistakes a woman can make while training to get in shape is to fear building too much muscle. If you fear an outcome that is not going to happen, you will never commit fully to training, and you'll avoid pushing yourself in the gym. This can only result in sub-optimal results.
“When you lift weights, you will put on some muscle. It's true! It's also a very good thing. Muscle drives our metabolism, so the more we have, the faster our metabolism. This means more fat loss while sitting on the couch. More muscle means more strength, thus increased ability to live life to the fullest.
“It takes years and years of hard work and commitment to look like a pro bodybuilder. This is not something that is accidentally going to happen to you because you felt fatigue in your muscle while doing resistance exercises.”
He signs off with a beautiful analogy saying 'Not lifting weights because you are afraid of looking like a bodybuilder is like not driving your car because you fear becoming a NASCAR driver'
