Female bodybuilding no longer a taboo

A number of years ago it was seen as a taboo for women to participate in the “men’s” world of professional bodybuilding. Lately however many local and international competitions have sections for women participants and the bodybuilding world is now open to all female athletes. The term female bodybuilding may put some women off this type of exercise due to fear that they will bulk up too much and lose their inherent female curves.  

This couldn’t be further from the truth. Because of the physiological differences between men and women, women wouldn’t naturally be able to lift as much weights or build as much muscle as their male counterparts. This is mainly due to two hormones: testosterone and DHEA. Men have it naturally in much higher volumes than women and it are these hormones that make it possible for men to build so much muscle.

 Many women also fear that they will pick up weight because they need to eat so much more when they are doing bodybuilding. Remember, the secret here is not that you will eat more, you will only eat more regularly. Instead of three meals, you will have six or seven smaller meals spread throughout the day. This will keep your metabolism going and keep your energy levels up.

Training Schedule

Throughout my bodybuilding career I would say a big challenge for me was to prove that conditioning rules and not size.

I train 5 to 6 days per week. I prefer to train 1 muscle group per day and I totally exhaust that group with 4 - 5 exercises.
