There are a lot of women lifting very lite and high rep so they don't "bulk up". It's the old myth rearing it's ugly head. 1 lb is pretty silly and doesn't do a lot. Women do tend to underestimate themselves. And some just plain underachieve because it's easier. I actually did "bulk up" in my bicep area at one point, and so I do go lighter this time. But I bulked up by curling 30lb dumbbells. I do max 20 lb now and very high rep because my neck and biceps do tend to get a little manly looking. ;-) But five lbs are the lightest I own and I don't actually use them for anything. They came with the set.
