Female Physique & Bodybuilding

Margie Martin: From Star Struck to Stardom!

They say life imargs all about choices. It’s about the decisions we make that ultimately decide who we’ll become and where we’ll end up. However I believe that sometimes it’s the things in life that we don’t chose that have the greatest impact. It’s the moments of cosmic or divine intervention that come crashing into our lives without any warning that ultimately become the moments that auto-correct our course without us having any say whatsoever. And sometimes, like in the case of emerging female bodybuilding star Margie Martin, those moments lead us into a world we only could’ve envisioned in our wildest dreams.

Sleep is Key to Your Success:You Snooze You Lose?

Yosleepslideu’ve been dedicated to your training and nutrition plan for months – logging hours in the gym each week and prepping all your meals. You’ve checked off all the boxes to be successful, right? Maybe not. You might be overlooking one key factor in your plan: sleep.

The work performed during training puts stress on the body, tearing muscle fibers and draining cells of their energy stores.

There are a number of ways sleep impacts your body, all of which are highly important to those working towards fitness goals.

Striking the Balance – Femininity, Muscle, and Symmetry An Interview with IFBB Pro Women's Bodybuilder Shannon Courtney

shaCourtneyStriking the Balance – Femininity, Muscle, and Symmetry
An Interview with IFBB Pro Women's Bodybuilder Shannon Courtney


Striking the balance is the goal. For a woman, especially a young woman entering a sport that many say is on its way out, that's an important milestone. There's a segment of Women's Bodybuilders, the pragmatists if you will, that see the writing on the wall and they've started jumping ship. Some will choose retirement, meanwhile others will opt to join the ranks of Women's Physique, Figure, or maybe even Bikini.

KRIS MURRELL: TRAINING FOR WOMEN’S PHYSIQUE

KRIS 04KRIS MURRELL: TRAINING FOR WOMEN’S PHYSIQUE


    Hybrid: Noun: A thing made by combining two different elements; a mixture
                             Adjective: Of mixed character; composed of mixed parts

 

Hybrid happens to be one of Kris’s favorite words. To her, it means something different, something better, something no one has even seen or done. The women’s physique category falls into this criteria. In my opinion, women’s physique will be a hybrid of women’s bodybuilding and figure. I am basing this on the top five competitors chosen in their respective classes at the 2011 NPC Nationals. In my opinion, these competitors resembled figure athletes in bodybuilding condition.

THE EVOLUTION: FROM WOMEN'S BODYBUILDING TO WOMEN'S PHYSIQUE

KimCTHE EVOLUTION:

FROM WOMEN'S BODYBUILDING TO WOMEN'S PHYSIQUE

 

Physique contests for women date back to at least the 1960's with contests like the Miss Physique and Miss Americana. However, these early "bodybuilding" contests were really not much more than bikini contests. The first U.S. Women's National Physique Championships, promoted by Henry McGhee and held in Canton, Ohio in 1978, is generally regarded as the first true female bodybuilding contest.
