No need to worry. This fine young woman is a top rowing recruit at USC. She has remarkably dainty arms and legs for a top rower!
I've been wondering if the rowing connection to the admissions scandal would come up.

I couldn't resist.

The court documents indicate that she had her picture taken in front of a rowing machine to bolster her application along with a $500,000 check/bribe. Sad that she likely took the spot of a legitimate, hard working, female rower.

So I am about to buy an erg. One little stupid thing that I am worried about it getting big arms. I am fine with muscles, but I don't want big beefy arms. I imagine rowing is not going to do that. But I have heard some comments that female rowers have big manly arms. I don't know whether to believe this or not.
So if you are female, and row regularly, could you please tell me your thoughts on this.
Without testosterone shots a Woman will not grow too big anywhere. Lets please quash this myth!

Thanks everybody for the feedback on my concerns! I went ahead and got the erg and it arrived today! I was actually at the gym, paying to use the rowing machine, when it was delivered 3 days early unbeknownst to me :D
So it's been a month - how are things going with the new erg?
