Bodybuilding Women In Competition Are As Common As Men

Aug 17, 2007
Although for many years it was odd to see a woman bodybuilder it is now a very popular sport for women. Now there are just as many competitions for women as there is for men and women are building just as much muscle as men are.

With this sport growing at an increasing rate many women are looking to improve not only there fitness but there strength as well. Not only is there strength and fitness important but for bodybuilding women symmetry is just as important. Woman bodybuilders can build amazing beautiful muscle symmetry that these bodybuilding women can be proud of.

In women bodybuilding it is actually a lot harder for a woman to build muscle because a woman has higher levels of estrogen and men have higher levels of testosterone. Testosterone helps the body to build muscle so it takes a woman longer and they have to work harder to achieve the same kind of muscle mass that a man can easily get.

Because women have more estrogen, they tend to store fat a lot more easily so in that aspect of bodybuilding woman have to work harder as well. If a woman is going to take bodybuilding seriously she must really watch how many calories she is consuming and how many calories she is burning. This can really help in losing the fat and building muscle.

Many women are reluctant to start bodybuilding, because they think that if they stop bodybuilding then there muscle will turn to fat. Well this myth that has been around forever is not true unless some thing in a woman occur.

For example fat happens when a woman eats way more calories then her body can burn. So if you increased your food intake when you were bodybuilding to get the proper amount of protein needed to gain muscle.

Then you stop bodybuilding for some reason and you continue to eat the amount of food you were eating and you are not burning those calories then those extra calories will turn to fat. So if you quit bodybuilding then you need to watch your calories so you do not gain fat and lose muscle.

So while getting super bulky is good it is not if you are a woman and think you might quit. But if you are serious about bodybuilding and you are a bodybuilding woman then with much work you can achieve amazing results. You will feel confident and people will be truly amazed and you can be proud of what they see.
