Females may not put on as much mass as a male bodybuilders, but they sure do train just as hard. Women have long been considered weaker than men. The reason this is the case is simply due to hormones. Men have much higher levels of testosterone, a muscle building hormone, whereas women have higher levels of estrogen, which can lead to excess fat. This alone may be enough to discourage women from weight training; they may come under the impression that muscle building is much more difficult.
Another reason some women do not employ resistance training is because they want to have fit, toned physiques, but not bulky with large muscles. These women fear that by building muscle their appearance will actually look worse. Adding muscle will actually help support your metabolism and allow you to lose fat in those trouble areas.
When it comes to the actual sport of bodybuilding, women have made great progress in the last few years. The first contests occurred in the 1960s; however these were hardly bodybuilding contests. Miss Physique, along with Miss American was more about the appeal of these women, and less about muscularity.
The first contest that judged the women by bodybuilding standards was not until 1978. 1980 was the year that the first Nationals were held by the National Physique Committee (NPC). This was also the same year that the first Ms. Olympia was held.
In the mid-1980's the sport got more exposure through advertisements, as well as Playboy. One competitor got banned for 1 year for posing in this magazine, but the exposure for the sport itself was invaluable.
In 2007, women combined great physiques with the perfect amount of muscle. These are females, so the focus on pure muscle mass is somewhat less noticeable than in male competitions.
The abilities of many women are simply incredible, as well as inspirational. One female figure competitor in particular is one of my biggest inspirations. There is a great deal of acceptance of women in this sport, which is great.
Looking at America's history, we have not always been acceptable of all races and genders. Fortunately, bias is not a problem in this sport, and male and female are able to inspire and encourage each other.
Whether you intend to pursue bodybuilding, and I encourage you to do so, the following workout should help you with your goals. Even if your goal is to tone-up and get in better shape, you should still be able to pick up some good information.
