Body Building for Female Bodies

Courtesy of haikujaguar is this post about female anatomy and how to do various types of body building exercises safely and effectively. Most equipment and exercises were designed for men and so some modifications for different anatomy are helpful. Pay especial attention to the pullups: being able to lift your own body weight could save your life, or someone else's.

(For an exercise style designed for women, I recommend belly dancing. The Fitness Channel's "Shimmy" series is excellent.)
