I’m a woman getting to be around the age where I care about my bones. The irony? Lactose intolerance appears to be another milestone that comes with this age! It’s not so bad that I can never have dairy, but let’s just say that if I ever do anything to offend you, you can seek your revenge by sending me an extra-cheese pizza.

Repeat after me, ladies: strength training, lifting dumbbells and entering the free-weight area of the gym are not going to make me look like a man.While it seems like a logical progression—lift weights, build muscle, turn into a bodybuilder—the truth is, you’re not going to bulk up like the guys you see slamming plates at the gym, or even like the women on the pages of muscle magazines. It takes intense training (and testosterone levels we simply don’t have), to build bulging biceps, chiseled chests and rock-hard rear ends.

But is yours made from… actual rocks?
