Not if done right.: Training with lighter weights and performing more repetitions per set will help develop smaller more defined muscles. Using heavy weights will develop bulk.

Some won't: Some women will not get bulky,just as some men will not. Of course there are illegal supplements that could be taken to assist in this area,but illegal and dangerous. See a personal trainer and a sports nutritionist for advice.You need to decide what your goal really is: strength, improved performance for a specific event/sport, health, appearance.. ? Only then can you identify pathway to success.
