One of my training jobs (here, actually) involves training women for fat loss and overall physical fitness. I also talk to a number of women about weight training. I am always on the lookout for well-written articles about female physical fitness training.
Here are a few I think are worth reading:
Jason Nunn - "Girls should lift weights?"
Charles Poliquin - "Why Women Should Not Be Afraid of Gaining Muscle"
Neghar Fonooni - "Real Women Lift Weights-Heavy Weights
...and I'll once again recommend anyone who weight trains, especially women, should bookmark Stumptuous.com.
Please don't fear the weights!
