For a loooong time, bodybuilding has been considered the “manly man” thing to do, but let’s not count out the females! Some of the females out there can definitely give guys a run for their money haha! Female bodybuilding is big business these days.
Some women might be a little hesitant to start a bodybuilding program because they don’t want to look all hulkish or look like an amazonian woman. Here’s the flat out truth: If you’re a woman, you will never look like a man because, well…you’re a woman! What I’m trying to say is that if you’re a woman, there is no way that you will get all bulked up like a guy. So you don’t have to worry about looking manly 🙂 Men naturally have a larger amount of testosterone in their bodies that women don’t have. That testosterone makes their muscles develop differently, so females don’t need to worry about that bulky look.
Many women want their bodies to look and feel good. If you’re a woman, please correct me if I’m wrong 😉 When you workout, you are strengthening your muscles and your mind as well. In my opinion, this world doesn’t have a good perception when it comes to a woman’s body. This world wants girls to be extra skinny like walking toothpicks. To me, that’s just not attractive. Bodybuilding for women can help break that skinny image and let the world know that being ultra skinny is not being ultra healthy.
Starting a bodybuilding program will help tone the female body and make it stronger. And of course, the same thing goes for guys. Aesthetically, you will look healthier and symmetrical when you have a toned body with well-defined muscles. There’s nothing better looking than a well built woman. It’s an outward sign that she takes care of herself and that she is serious about her health.
Female bodybuilding uses much of the same processes as bodybuilding for guys. Women can use the same exercises such as squats, dead lifts, and bench presses. A good cardio workout is also necessary in a bodybuilding program. Women should focus on the muscles that they want to tone such as thighs, abs, and arms.
Nutrition is also very important for men as well as women body builders. A good, balanced diet with lots of protein and a moderate amount of carbs will help tone the body and make growing muscles easier in the process. Women do have slightly different nutritional needs than men such as needing more iron in the diet, so a good multi-vitamin can help any female in her bodybuilding program.
Sculpting a great body is NOT restricted to just men when it comes to bodybuilding. Female bodybuilding is getting much more popular as women strive to be more beautiful as well as healthier. You’ll look better, feel better, and be better when you undertake a bodybuilding program.
Female bodybuilding isn’t about bulking up, it’s about getting healthy and looking great, and feeling confident. When you build a great body with well-defined muscles, it will be well-worth the effort when you look in the mirror…especially when your boyfriend or husband goes, “Dang! Whatever you’re doing, keep it up because you’re lookin’ good!”
