Women bodybuilders do not typically build muscle as quickly or significantly as men; but with frequent high-volume weight training, they can still see enormous muscular developments. Bodybuilding requires workouts that feature a higher number of exercises, sets and repetitions, which overload the muscle fibers. This overloading stimulates the muscle-building process. Women just starting out should begin at the lower end of the high-volume workouts and increase their load as they develop.
We should bring this back! "From the mid-1950s to the early 1970s, women had to appear as ladylike as possible, even when doing something as traditionally masculine as working out with weights. This girl is doing a seated press with respectably heavy weight, but her high heels and helmet0like hairdo are like fig leaves preserving her femininity."
