I am a female. Will lifting heavy weights make me bulky?

While lifting weights will increase muscle, the rate is slow enough and androgens limited enough to not make you appear too 'bulky'.

No.

Females lack the adequate amount of testosterone required to develop large muscles. Furthermore, many of the most bulky bodybuilders you see are using banned substances in order to achieve their level of mass.
