Just like the guys, musclewomen still have to put in the hours, lifting the weights, carefully planning their high protein meals, and adding those all important natural supplements into the mix. The results speak for themselves with amazing conditioning, well-defined musculature and the much sought after 'six-pack'.

However, with the emphasis on quality not quantity the ladies achieve their goals without necessarily generating the muscle size and bulk associated with their male counterparts.

In the early days of women's competition a smooth yet shapely figure was seen as the ideal. Then the fashion changed as widespread use of male growth hormones and anabolic steroids led to massive, some might even say excessive muscular development in some female bodybuilders. Not surprisingly some of those women became so huge and muscular that they looked more and more like men!


Today the trend for women bodybuilders has veered towards achieving a more natural look. A greater emphasis on metabolic resistance training exercises tends to deliver great definition and muscularity while retaining femininity. This is a look attained by focusing more intently on maintaining muscle length.

So, to build muscle women begin with weight and resistance training, and every muscle group is worked to the point of exhaustion at least once a week. But because of the obvious differences from men in terms of upper and lower body shape building musclewomen requires an alternative approach to exercise.

The ultimate goal is to combine strength and flexibility with grace as opposed to heading towards the all out power of the men's bulk and mass.
