Is there anything wrong if I'm a teenage girl and I want to build some muscle. I'm not going out all Hulk-like but can't I build even a little. Not even enough to where I can pick up something without the help of a guy? My mom and uncle repeatedly tell me not to build muscle because even a little because "Muscles don't suit girls, you won't get married, stop trying to show off that you are strong, don't compete with boys, you will look ugly, do what a girl is supposed to do.You'll get hurt." I want to build muscle so I can actually do things by myself. For example , when I do seva at the Gurdwara, my dad says not to pick up even a small bucket of water while the girls who are weaker than me (my friends who told me I am stronger than them) are doing it easily. Am I missing a line in the Bani where it says women aren't meant to be strong?( rhetorical question ) I have one life , in my life my goal is to meet God, but that doesn't mean I can't have other goals. I want to build muscles and I don't care how I look because at the end it won't matter who I married, it will only matter if I reached God. So why can't I build muscles?

Yes, you can build up your strength. Start slowly and build up steadily. Don't be in a hurry, just increase your time or number of repetitions a bit each day or two. You can do sit-ups to build your core strength and you can get some handheld 'shape weights' and use them to do curls and side lifts. Look online. Google: "easy workouts to build strength for girls"

Girls can grow muscle no problem with that.

But you have to make sure you don't stunt your growth. Search up about it more online.
