Instead of more bikini contests what we need is more physique categories

By Bill Dobbins

I see a lot of female physique competitors who go into figure because they don’t think they can – or don’t want to – get as big and muscular as either amateur or pro bodybuilding champions. However, although you can make a lot of changes to the body with dieting and training, there seems to be very distinct differences in the genetics of bodybuilders vs. figure competitors. Like the story of the Ugly Duckling, ducks are ducks and swans are swans and wanting to be something other than you are doesn’t really accomplish anything.

THE ATHLETIC FEMALE BODY:
THE GREEKS DIDN’T HAVE A WORD FOR IT!
If tradition doesn’t include the ideal of the athletic female physique – 
maybe it’s time to start a new tradition!
By Bill Dobbins

People tend to have strong feelings and deeply held opinions when it comes to the subject of women’s bodies. For example:

  • (1)  In the eyes of many men and women, women with muscles—no matter how beautiful, shapely and curvaceous they might otherwise be—have ruined their bodies by allowing them to become masculinized.  In their minds, muscles = masculine and women with muscles have therefore disregarded a natural and innate distinction between the genders. Muscle on women is seen as some sort of violation of Natural Law.
  • (2)  A lot of men cannot see the female body except in terms of their own specific sexual preferences.  In terms of body type or degree of physical development, if it doesn’t turn them on—if they don’t want to go to bed with it—they’re against it.  The fact that there may be some other standard by which to judge women and their physical attributes never enters into the discussion.

The Need For Quality Photographs
By Bill Dobbins

Not every young woman is “model attractive” but given how many pretty girls there are who get into modeling and specifically into fitness modeling the total number is pretty large. When you take every one who is the prettiest in her gym, her school, or even her town or state and you put them all in one place (like the Arnold or Olympia Expos or the FIBO in Germany) you’ve got a staggeringly large group.

Some of these young women just want to model and they need photos for their portfolios. But large percentages are also fitness, figure or bodybuilding competitors and they need pictures to promote and publicize themselves, for websites and Facebook and to sign and sell. Where can get the necessary photos? Until recently the physique magazines assigned a lot of photos of women from the fitness industry but this is happening less often. Also, the photos they do assign tend to be more along the lines of “cheesecake” than pictures celebrating and glamorizing the female physique. These T&A photos are fine as far as they go but they tend to make the models all look pretty much alike and they are often designed to minimize the physiques these women have trained and dieted so hard to create rather than to show their real sculptural qualities.

BIG CAN BE BEAUTIFUL

BIG CAN BE BEAUTIFUL

By Bill Dobbins

When bodybuilding for women first started in the late 1970s and early 1980s the competitors got very muscular but they weren’t very big. Female bodybuilding was mostly a dieting contest back then. It takes a fairly long time for even the genetically gifted to pack on a lot of mass so in those days the competitors simply hadn’t been training long enough to develop a lot of muscle. This kept the controversy to a minimum – along with the fact that the first Ms. Olympia was the very beautiful and marketable Rachel McLish.
