Female bodybuilder has more to offer than just aesthetics

A personal trainer at Gold’s Gym in Henderson, bodybuilder Carmen Brady has been interested in flexing her muscles since she was a teen.
When Carmen Brady started pumping iron 40 years ago, girls were a rare sight in a gym—especially girls who wanted to build muscle.

It didn't take Brady, now 56, long to figure out bodybuilding was a passion. By age 18, she was working as a personal trainer and, within 10 years, she became a professional bodybuilder.

In 30 years of bodybuilding, Brady has competed in more than 40 contests and has been on the covers of fitness magazines, including Muscle & Fitness, Flex and NPC.

A mother of two, she is now a personal trainer at Gold's Gym, 35 S. Stephanie St. in Henderson, just off Interstate 215.

Brady has been the only competitor to win both junior titles in the National Physique Committee competitions. She has competed in NPC USA since 1988 and won an NPC Masters title as well as a Masters title at the International Federation of Bodybuilders North American Championships.

Before she began her 15 years of training with bodybuilding guru Charles Glass, Brady began building a passion for pumping iron at the age of 16 and began to personal train two years later, in 1973.

"Within a couple of years, they assigned me as the head trainer. I was the teacher then, and I taught all people how to train other people," Brady said. "I created the first water exercise classes and first floor classes."

Brady started to train for competition eight months after the birth of her first child, Tim. With her second child, Krystal, she continued to train during her pregnancy.

"I have had leg workouts that were worse than the delivery," Brady said.

Brady even would have the baby cradle next to her, while lifting weights at the gym. After losing her 23-year-old daughter Krystal to a motorcycle accident, Brady's motivation was the fact that she would improve every year and have that feeling of strength. If she weren't at the gym, she said, she probably would reorganize all of the furniture.

Aside from competing in national competitions and going through a tough loss, Brady has a love for antiques and surfing and an interest in acting.

"When I would go to travel for my shows, I would go to the antique stores there and ship stuff back home," she said. Her antiques have been featured in Dinnerware, Pottery & More, a collector's book by well-known dealers and 20th-century glass and ceramics authorities Joe Keller and David Ross.

She also played Starla in the 2004 movie Napoleon Dynamite.

Mixed martial arts fighter, actor and stuntman Roman Mitichyan said it's unfortunate that there aren't more female bodybuilders in film.

"Nobody ever sees a female bodybuilder in film, because they tend to get typecast," Mitichyan said. "It is unfortunate, because we see male bodybuilders, such as Arnold Schwarzenegger, playing a hero, but we rarely see that with the female bodybuilders."

Although she has a large fan base in the Middle East in countries like Pakistan and Istanbul, Brady said she was not accepted in the United States, because she was a female bodybuilder.

"In early years, when they didn't really understand," Brady said. "There were people who would yell crazy things, because they were uneducated, and they thought you were a freak."

Women bodybuilders are not as hyped as much as male bodybuilders are, said Jennifer Delgado, Brady's friend and a fellow trainer at Gold's Gym.

"I don't think judges find as much interest in women bodybuilders as they do men bodybuilders," Delgado said. "It varies from different organizations and competitions, too."

"Women bodybuilders are viewed as freaks, but they do have many admirers and respect for their hard work and dedication," Delgado said.

While having had to deal with obstacles throughout her career, according to Brady, people are more open-minded today.

"Now, everybody knows what you're doing, and they respect you," she said

Are you serious?This is NOt a Bodybuilder let alone Large anything!!

Are Politicians Tax Deductible?

One man tried to claim a politician as a tax deduction saying he “pays his salary,” therefore as a taxpayer he should be entitled to use him as a deduction. A woman tried to claim a tax deduction for the months she was pregnant last year even though she gave the baby up for adoption after birth. A man claimed a $25,000 mileage deduction for a business that earned just $10,000 last year.
These are just a few of the examples in the second annual Minnesota Society of Certified Public Accountants Most Outrageous Tax Deductions. Michelle Singletary, writing in her Color of Money column in this morning’s Washington Post, mentions a few of them.
Singletary also gives some great examples provided by TurboTax of tax deductions the IRS rejected, but a tax court later ruled legitimate. A professional bodybuilder was allowed to deduct as a business expense the cost of body oil he used to “make his muscles glisten under stage lights during competitions.” Singletary says the tax court did not allow him to deduct the cost of the buffalo meat and special vitamin supplements used to develop those muscles.
In December, ABC News reported on the top five things you didn’t know were tax deductible, from stray cats to Uhauls. Read more here.

A change needs to come!!

If you were feeling rather self-conscious about carrying a little extra flab this winter, then look away now.

There's no room for slacking in the world of female bodybuilding as the women who posed for these incredible portraits show. They have honed their physiques over years of dedication, hard work and determination. The international athletes were captured at the peak of their physical condition by acclaimed photographer and artist Martin Schoeller.

The competitive sport of female bodybuilding has origins in the bikini contests of the 1960s but the first true event was the U.S. Women's National Physique Championship in 1978 - which judged participants solely on their muscles.

Dedication: Female bodybuilders train for years to build up the muscle definition required to compete in professional events

According to the National Physique Committee, an amateur organization established in 1982, there are strict rules set out for those who compete in female bodybuilding contests.

Female competitors must wear a two-piece costume when competing and although prints, fringes, lace and sparkle are all allowed, bodybuilders are restricted from hiking up the suits to better show off their physiques.

Women REALLY don't like beards: And they also make men seem older and more aggressive, say psychologists
The voice of 129 video games: Actor who's played scores of stunning characters...but you've probably never heard of her
We're really losing pounds: How recession makes you thin... and it's mystifying the experts
Jewellery is banned until the final stages when earrings are permitted- although decorative hair pieces are out. Glasses, props or chewing gum are also prohibited.

During competitions, bodybuilders usually carry out a routine set to music where they strike poses to best show off their muscles. Contestants, coated in generous helpings of oil, are judged on symmetry, shape, proportion, muscle tone, poise and beauty flow.

Fierce: Female bodybuilding was established in the late 1970s, the first time the women were judged solely on muscular definition

One of the biggest competitions in America is the Muscle Beach Championship bodybuilding and bikini competition at Venice Beach in Los Angeles. The next event takes place on May 28.

Organiser and promoter Joe Wheatley has said: 'Muscle Beach Venice one of the largest amusement attractions in the Los Angeles area. The focus remains exercise and nutrition and the site continues to be the grassroots soul of bodybuilding famous throughout the world.'

The female bodybuilders were captured by acclaimed photographer Martin Schoeller, 43, who is perhaps best known for his close-up portraits of some of the world's most recognizable faces including Barack Obama, Bill Clinton, Clint Eastwood, Angelina Jolie and George Clooney.

Muscling in on the action: Competitions are strictly regulated - with bikinis and dance routines being subject to national guidelines

Defining beauty: The photographs of the group of international female body builders were taken by acclaimed celebrity photographer Martin Schoeller

Schoeller said of his work: 'I am trying to show the vulnerability that I see and feel in the subjects when I am with them, to get to the complex emotions behind a mask of extreme physical expression.'

The photographer, originally born in Munich, Germany in 1968 came to New York when he was 25 after studying in Berlin to work for Annie Leibovitz.

He has won numerous awards for his work and his photographs are displayed at galleries around the world including the National Portrait Gallery in London and the Smithsonian Institute.
