    Hell yeah! Hell no!

    can anyone help me?

    I was a thrower a few years ago and stopped doing sports for awhile but I have recently started TKD. I did a lot of weight training in the past thus I have developed broad shoulders and rather big arm and leg muscles. Is there any way to train so that i can build up my strength again but not build up humongous muscles?

    Try tension training, similar to what gymnasts and a lot of other people do. Check out the Dragondoor.com forum and you'll get all the info out of his books there to try it out.

    I always thought that training for stregnth led to bigger muscles. Why would you want to not build huge muscles?

    You won't get huge muscles.

    In order to increase mass you must eat more. You'll get stronger and you may increase in size a little but you won't get huge without consuming huge amounts of calories.

    Spot is a girl. She's looking for a way to tone without gaining muscle mass.

    Most fighters and athletes in strict weight classes wouldn't want to get too much bigger, and those that rely on staying about the same size but who want to get stronger (dancers, gymnasts, etc.).
