    I assume you are using a waist-level finder

    Try a Bronica GS-1. For a 6x7 it is extremely light and compact. If you can live without TTL metering and aperture priority you don't need the prism finder and save even more weight.

    This is about the lightest 6x7 I've used
    http://photo-utopia.blogspot.com/200...3_archive.html

    It also has a shutter button on the front that you can squeeze and have less tendency to jab they also come in 6x9.
    I can shoot the above at 1/15 easily without blur.
    But to echo what others have said technique rather than strength, don't jab.
    I think my Rollei is best though possibly due to me holding it a waist height but obviously its 6x6.

    I think and always been that religion that you don't need big muscles to not shaking. Just need to relax muscles not indolent.

    Again, there are postural muscles involved in this kind of thing. These are not the "big" muscles that we associate with body-building, but they are very important for establishing and maintaining good posture and keeping steady. I agree that yoga and tai chi and such would probably be beneficial.
