Female BodyBuilding Question: I know bodybuilders have a lower percentage of body fat but other than that what’s the difference? I think this applys to men only because most women dont want to be as bulky as the female bodybuilders. ” – by ” Ritchie Answer: Bodybuilding is about building large muscle, according to a specific symmetry (size ratios) and achieving low body fat and high definition to make the muscles more visible. Then tehy compete with set poses and optional poses. It’s purely aesthetic. Looking in shape is can be achieved in different ways, and the muscles don’t have to be developed according to bodybuilding ratios. A powerlifter, olympic lifter, a sprinter, gymnast all look in shape, but none of them are a bodybuilder. Instead they work hard to be better at their sport, and as a result look in shape. Answer By: Aiden ———————————————————————————————————————————— Question: I mean realistically, can a female become a body builder with out artificial enhancements? I’m just a curios female thinking of doing this but I want to know if it can be done without the use of steroids? ” – by ” Tyme Answer: a bodybuilder is anyone who tries to sculpt their body. So yes you can be a female body builder without steroids If you are just doing this as a recreational hobby then you will be just fine If your question is can I be a PROFESSIONAL female body builder without steroids – then yes it is possible but you will have to look for good drug-tested confederations to compete through. Most people in the professional bodybuilding business are on steroids – even in the drug tested federations there are many people who take or cycle some form of synthetic drug that gives them an advantage over the competition So the answer is – it depends. In a drug-tested contest you might have a chance. Good luck. Answer By: HopelessRomantic ———————————————————————————————————————————— Question: Just what do you think he feels about it?

The god from the Christian Bible would think that it is ok just as long as you don’t become addicted to it and it takes the place of good works or worship in your life. The Old Teutonic Gods would think that it is a fantastic pass time and it would be encouraged at any level. Greek and Roman gods would probably think along the same lines. The Moslem god probably wouldn’t like it because it would “promote sexual ideas” and take away from the worship of the old Moon God of the Arabs.

I know iI should be an a 40-40-20 program where 40% of my food is protein 40% carbs and 20% fats. However, I am still confused on how much would be beneficial for me to consume to reach my goals. My goals are to tone and increase muscle size while losing fat. ” – by ” Debby Answer: Ehhh 40/40/20 is ok but everyone at the gym I work usually sticks around 50/30/20 when they want to gain some muscle because they will have a little more energy. But it is totally up to you I like both. Just make sure to calcuate your BMR and add 500 to it then split it up into whatever you like. Also, you can’t “tone”, increase muscle size while losing fat. Only way you can do this is if you are truely a beginner to working out and it will only last so long, or you have the help of steroids. Because muscle building requires extra calories to build that muscle and to lose fat you need a calorie deficit. Answer By: Brian T ———————————————————————————————————————————— Question: I’ve notice that when I see some female domination or female wrestlers site in the Internet, they always eh…dominate men who are quite old, who looks sickly thin or too fat to fight. Why is there a few (very few) dominatrix who dominate big, strong hunks? Is that because wimpy men can’t fight back? If so, then why do we call them dominant women in the first place? ” – by ” Tasha M Answer: I think for most guys when they want to see a dominant woman in action, they want the fantasy of a guy being overwhelmed by a powerful, larger female, rather than an even fight of two giants. Female bodybuilders do well for these videos and the fantasy a lot of us guys (including myself) have of an overwhelming woman. Female bbs like Colette Guimond, Roxie Rain and Alina Popa are popular for doing these videos. You will see them a lot in Athena wrestling videos. However for them to be competitive in the bodybuilding world the heights for those three women range from 5’2″ to 5’7″ and none of them weigh over 180lbs. Their sizes will not be formidable with big strong guys. One solution would be for some of the mixed wrestling video companies to break out of the fbb mold and just get big strong women, who might not be exactly cut like the muscle fbbs. I would like to see some videos with some thick, solid, strong women maybe 6′ or so weighing over 200lbs. taking on some strong guys in an even strength match. That would be more believable and not just a one-sided smash wimp fest. BTW, I know what you mean about the guys in the videos for the mixed wrestling companies. Mass Muscle videos was bad about this and they would waste great female talent like Tina Lockwood or Tigra on some sickly skinny guys or the Mass Muscle owner, who was some balding, middle aged fat guy, with hair all over his torso. Yuck! Answer By: Orion ———————————————————————————————————————————— Question: Hi everyone, I am a generally fit teenager. I go to the gym at least five days a week, and weight train every time i go to the gym. (lifting and squats) I want to become a fitness model either in college, or after. I don’t want this as a full-time job because I am going to medical school after college. I’ve always wanted to become a fitness model,but I never had the desire to become a completely ripped female, and get into bodybuilding. Just model athletic clothing, and be in a few magazines, or whatever seems fit!! I love everything about fitness, I have a fitness account on twitter and I love to be in shape! I just don’t want to be extremely ripped. Are there fitness model’s that aren’t ripped? Do you need to compete in bodybuilding to become a fitness model? Is it a very demanding job? If anyone is a fitness model, or has any advice on how to approach this, that would me immensely helpful! Thank You!!! ” – by ” Answer: Be Great looking, hit the gym, run, and eat healthy.
