RE: rep ranges
I really doi not thnk that there is any difference between how women and men should train.Men will get bigger simply because of a natural predisposition to do so and even then it takes alot of dedication.
If women train with weigths but dont want to add size then simply watch the calories. In truth most would look better with more muscle mass but the problem is that if you say this they picture themselves as becoming huge as soon as they touch a heavy weight...like its that easy! lol
Kissmypinky - if i was you i would ignore the magazines and do what works best for you. Goodluck with it!
