Where is Lorena Cozza now??

Apparently Kelly Dobbins knows a few moves,...

ARE FEmale Bodybuilders on HERE??!!

I know that many people (and I sometimes find myself guilty of this) see female bodybuilders as gross or very non-feminine. To be honest, I don't at all think male bodybuilders are attractive either, but for some reason I still feel bad when I think that way about the women.
What I'd like to know is if you're a female bodybuilder, why do you like to do it? Does it make you feel beautiful, or more confident? Is it just plain fun? I of course don't mean for any of these questions to be hurtful, and if they are I apologize for my poor wording.

A friend of mine is a professional powerlifter. She is currently one of the strongest women in the world.
She does it because she thinks it is fun. While she is not beautiful in the "traditional" sense, she has no problem finding smoking hot men interested in dating her and I, personally, find her beautiful as well. The girl is built like a tank, but she is one of the kindest, most loving people I've met.

Thanks for answering. It's difficult for me to envision people who do stuff like this outside of the performance sphere, because I never see them in real life, so I appreciate your point of view. :)

I wish I could get into powerlifting...alas, I have a ways to go before I'm anywhere near that! How did she get into it (if you know)?

We have some male friends that are really into it. One of them was a roommate of ours, and he got her involved. From there, it was love!

Check out /r/fitness. They generally focus on weight based strength training.

I think with power-lifting you really see the results of healthy is beautiful showing where the focus is on performance rather than attempting to isolate ideals on the physical form and apply them universally like you see in bodybuilding.
Body-building seems (for both sexes) to require people to work towards an ideal that has become rather exaggerated, while training for strength leads to a more individually ideal form.

I started lifting weights after a battle with anorexia. It was the only thing that kept me from relapsing. It's strange - I weigh more than I ever have in my life right now, but the STRENGTH I feel is incredible. The first time I did a pull up was so empowering. And unlike the cardio I did for years in the depths of my problem, I feel like I need to eat to fuel muscle growth as opposed to the constant fear of not being in enough of a calorie deficit when I was just doing cardio. Not sure if that makes sense. Anyways... while it makes me feel strong and confident, there are some times when I feel a bit strange. Like I don't fit in women's shirts anymore because my lat (back) muscles have gotten too large. So sometimes the old eating disorder thoughts creep in and tell me that's wrong. But ultimately I know it's the healthier choice. If I didn't have this, I might feel like I had nothing and go back to where I was a few years ago. So yes, I do feel beautiful still. Also I think a lot of people have misconceptions about female body builders. What you see when we compete is not representative of what we look like in real life. When we get up on stage, we've been cutting carbs for a week and we've dehydrated ourselves to make the muscles stand out more. We also put on a shit-ton of self-tanner (ugh - some parts I just don't get). A couple weeks after the competition when things have softened up a bit I think it looks fantastic. I suppose I have to clarify that I don't do "bodybuilding" but "figure" - it's one step "below" body building in terms of muscle mass and body fat composition. So while bodybuilding females might have around 8% body fat, figure competitors have around 12-14% and have less muscle mass in total. But I look in the mirror and think "WOW that is a fucking hot woman!"
So this would be a body builder: http://4.bp.blogspot.com/_V4w18ZWaPas/SW6AIJE_N7I/AAAAAAAADe0/4_GN3ylyk3w/s400/Female-Bodybuilers-Sexy-or-Not-Sexy-01.gif

Thank you for your honest response. I feel like I have a much better understanding of at least one of the mindsets of female "bodybuilders," and I also learned something- I had no idea "figure" existed, and I think it looks incredibly healthy and uniquely womanly. :)

[–]jjm22 2 points 8 days ago
Yes there's even a step "below" figure (I don't really like to use the word below because it implies they don't train as hard, but I really just mean it in terms of the type of muscle they choose to work for) called bikini. Those girls train with lower weights but higher repetitions with those weights for endurance, some strength, and overall toning. Here's a pic of what that might look like: http://ngamountainstates.com/images/Bikini%20Group%200798.jpg
But they really don't do what you were asking about (body building), it's something very different with a very different resulting appearance :)

[–]jjm22 2 points 8 days ago
I should also add there's a fourth category with some training similar to what I described earlier when I talked about what I do "figure". These ladies do what's called "fitness" competitions. They will have roughly the same muscle mass as the "figure" girls (bodybuilding>figure/fitness>bikini) but their competition is quite different. I don't know much about it but here's an article explaining it. I think it more about showmanship, "Not every female athlete is blessed to have the foundations of gymnastic or formal dance. Women across the world grew interest in competing in fitness but lack the agility and skill to perform the mandatory moves of the fitness competitions.".

Ah it appears I may have been only half right! "And what makes figure different from fitness again? The judging criteria for figure competitors are more critical as stated earlier. More emphasis is on femininity rather than the athleticism. Fitness competitors, on the other hand, can get away with lower body fat percentage and more muscular physique. Because of the routine round in Fitness, less emphasis naturally is placed on femininity and poise. There are only so many points to work with. The routine round is more prominent when judging Fitness because of the acrobatic movements on stage and the intricate dance routine, all of which demands strength, flexibility, balance, and creativity.

I believe there is also different levels of bodybuilding as well, and usually for women at the highest level theres a lot of supplements and breast augmentation that goes on.

Hi there, not a body builder here, but a gym fanatic. I have always been fit/healthy. I participated in sports as a child and ran track in highschool, took up yoga at some point as well. I also have a very high metabolism even during periods of inactivity, so I'm prone to becoming "too thin".
About two months ago I noticed that a couple pairs of my pants were fitting too loosely again. I was pissed... I'm 5'4", I feel best between 120 and 125 pounds, but somehow I had slipped back down to 117.
When this happened I decided to build muscle because my body wouldnt just burn through it the same way it could burn through fat reserves. I've been working with free weights and under the bar, but instead of doing light weight with many reps I've switched it to heavier weights.
In the just under two months time since I began this, I have been working out 5-6 days a week, increased my protein and iron intake, doubled the weight I do for ALL freeweight activities, and gained 8 lbs.
Seeing the transformation in my body has been incredible. I feel more feminine now with bigger biceps and cut legs than I ever did being rail thin. I feel strong, healthy, and empowered. I love when other women in the gym ask me what my regimen is, compliment my shape, or ask for exercise tips. It's great that my hard work is starting to show. Now my goal is to get up to 135-140 pounds, which obviously will take a ton of work.
So, not really body building, at least on any major level, but putting on muscle is the biggest rush ever.

That's really inspiring, I don't know if I could get the willpower and motivation up to do that kind of hard work. I guess the first step is taking the first step, but getting the initial push to do it is difficult. Thanks for your input :)

Thank you :) Getting to the gym is 90% of the battle, once you're there the workout will just come to you. I've never regretted going to workout, but I always regret it when I decide to take an extra off day. Exercise is really gratifying! :)

Sex Advice from Female Bodybuilders

Q: Why are female bodybuilders better in bed? A: We’re more open-minded and less judgmental. We don’t have a problem with doing something different.
BY LINA CANNEY


Amber Deluca (Steel)

Why are female bodybuilders better in bed?
Many elite female athletes supplement with anabolic steroids, boosting their natural testosterone levels, which makes them more sexually aggressive. In addition, a side effect of anabolic steroid use is an enlarged clitoris, which makes it more sensitive. Many female bodybuilders are very orgasmic via oral sex, and even the slightest stimulation will engorge the clitoris — much like a penis — and we’re ready for sexual action.


What's the best way to impress a female bodybuilder?
Female bodybuilders are no different socially or intellectually than a normal female. Be a gentleman, first and foremost. If you really want to win a female bodybuilder’s heart, pay attention to her dietary needs. Food requirements are something that must not be overlooked, and the faster you understand what type of food, and how much it, she requires, the better off you’ll be. Most importantly, do not approach her and violate her personal space or start touching her body without her permission. 


Why date a female bodybuilder?
The only reason you should date any woman is because you enjoy her company and her character. Dating a female bodybuilder shows you have a sense of adventure, but will test your patience. People will stare and make comments, sometimes nice, and sometimes negative. You must be a resilient and highly confident man to stand by a woman who goes against societal norms.

My boyfriend and I have a great relationship and great sex life. One of the things I admire most about him is how much he respects women. I'd like him to throw me around a little bit, but that is far from something he would normally do. How do I get him to be more dominant without spelling it out for him?
You must spell it out for him. Let’s face it, if you really want something, you must communicate with your partner about it. If you do not do this, you will become more dissatisfied in your relationship. Perhaps you could take wrestling lessons together or go to a domination education class. There are safe, fun ways to play; however, you need to communicate and practice role-playing in a safe environment first. 


I've been single for quite some time now and quite frankly, I'm getting really sick of my vibrator. It's boring! How do I make masturbation exciting again?
I have experienced many periods in my life where I have lived alone without a lover. Your imagination is your savior. Look for new toys and techniques that will not only satisfy you, but will be fun to introduce to a new lover in the future. After many years of lovers and marriage, I discovered that I could ejaculate while masturbating. So, your time alone can lead to exciting discoveries and new paths to satisfaction. 


I just started dating this girl, but she told me that she's in an open relationship with another woman. I'm a man. So my girlfriend isn't my girlfriend and she's also in a bisexual relationship. I really like her though. Is there anyway I can make this work?
Of course you can make it work. You must be patient and understanding of her needs. I am bisexual by nature, and have been in relationships with both men and women simultaneously. The test of any long-term relationship is patience and accepting her as she is.

What's the sexiest thing about female bodybuilders?
We have strength and confidence.

Why are female bodybuilders better in bed?
I’m not sure that all female bodybuilders are necessarily "better" in bed, but if they are, I would wager it has to do with having an open mind. Being a female bodybuilder is often not accepted. So we’re more open-minded and not as judgmental because we don’t have a problem with doing something a bit different.

My boyfriend and I have a great relationship and great sex life. One of the things I admire most about him is how much he respects women. I'd like him throw me around a little bit, but that is far from something he would normally do. How do I get him to be more dominant without spelling it out for him?
I would suggest bringing up it up in conversation. Pretend that you read something about domination in a magazine. Then ask him if perhaps he ever gets a little bit bored with not trying something new. See what he says. Most likely he will ask a similar question in return and you could hint around what you would like to try.

I have a serious crush on a senior employee at my job. It's been going on for months. Should I pursue this? And if so, how?
I would first be sure the employee isn't in a committed relationship. If you've been crushing on this person for months, it's worth exploring in my opinion. This doesn't mean it has to go anywhere, but at least you'll know. I would suggest you begin by talking to him and eventually flirting with him. If he's interested, I think you'll know by the way he responds. If you're still not sure, take the plunge and ask him out.

My girlfriend is still good friends with her most recent ex-boyfriend. Their families are friends, they have mutual friends, and they meet up about once a month to hang out. We've only been together for three months, so I don't feel comfortable asking her not to spend time with him. Also, I know they dated right before we got together. Is it possible that they've moved to the "friend-zone" that quickly or is she cheating on me?
Only your girlfriend and her ex-boyfriend know the answer to that. However, they broke up for a reason and they could have broken up because they became more like friends near the end of their relationship. I do not advise you to tell her that she cannot hang out with him, regardless of how long you have been together. First, they were in one another's lives before you met and, secondly, you should not be with someone if you don't trust her. She is being upfront about what she is doing, so I doubt she's messing around.

I have genital warts. Yup, it sucks. What sucks even more is that it's really stopped me from dating. I avoid dating because I have no idea how to "have that conversation" with someone else. Also, I'm plain embarrassed. How and when is it appropriate to discuss this with a potential partner?
Yes, it does suck, but do you really want to be alone for the rest of your life? The time to discuss this is when you are at the point in your relationship that you are comfortable becoming sexual. Obviously, do not leave it until the point where you clothes are off, but as things become hotter and heavier, open up and talk about it. Also, there is a dating site specifically for people with STIs. Everyone on the site has an STI and makes a note of what they have in their profile. It eliminates the embarrassment because everyone there is in the same boat


Melissa Coates

Why date a female bodybuilder?
We understand a man's need for sports in a way that most women don't. And we are very in touch with ourselves, at least physically. In the past few years I've become far more balanced emotionally as well. It’s so healthy to get in the gym and work out those daily frustrations! It leads to a much healthier and happier relationship.


What made you want to become a female bodybuilder?
I am now a professional bodybuilder and a professional wrestler. But I started out as a powerlifter! I seem drawn to doing things that push the envelope on what people consider typically "feminine" or "masculine" endeavors. When I was a kid I remember seeing a report about the first women's Olympia in Sports Illustrated; the Olympia is an extremely prestigious bodybuilding competition. The photos of the women — so lean, so strong, so muscular, tanned, and beautiful — really stuck in my mind.

Years later, I started playing tennis which my parents — a doctor and a nurse — found acceptable. I got into weight training to make my game stronger. At my peak I reached ninth in the world, did the Olympia twice, and was on the covers and in all the top fitness magazines: Muscle & Fitness, Flex, Ironman, and many others. Now, on top of doing fitness modeling and pro bodybuilding, I’m an actress and a pro wrestler.

I have a serious crush on a senior employee at my job. It's been going on for months. Should I pursue this? And if so, how?
Office affairs have led to the downfall of many a woman, especially when it’s been with a "senior" employee. So be aware of this and know what you’re getting into. On one hand, it could lead to a beautiful relationship, but, on the other hand, if things go badly you could end up being fired. I would approach this with major caution.

I am casually dating a girl I like very much. The problem is that we've done this before, twice. Both times I've felt like I could have won her over if I'd been a little bit more of an asshole to her. Do you have any tips on how to snag the girl who can't be snagged?
I think it is always best to just be yourself. Do you really want to be playing games? If you aren't an asshole, then don't be one. I've seen the same scenario happen where complete wenches end up settling down with good guys, and I've seen that the men seem to respond to the bad treatment. It absolutely floors me. But I still can't be that way myself. Don't lower yourself to the level of so many other men in the world.

My boyfriend is pressuring me to tell him "my number." What he doesn't know is that I had a real wild streak before he knew me. I strongly believe in honesty and communication, but is this something he really must know?
No, he really doesn't need to know and it's out of line that he would even ask, but I do know men can get this way when it comes to their girlfriends. If he keeps pressing you, I would suggest telling a white lie. If you refuse to address the question, he will assume the worst, and if you answer with the truth, he probably won't be happy either.

In general no man wants to hear you have been with hundreds of guys. It’s a terrible double standard, because most men love to brag how many women they have slept with. If you’re going to tell a white lie, then what’s the magic number? I'd say, if you’re in your thirties, you can probably say twenty guys at the most. In your twenties, I'd go with around ten partners. Typically, immature men ask this type of question. So maybe you don't want to be with an immature man to begin with.

JODIE MARSH:Tough act 2 Follow

SUPER-fit Jodie Marsh is battling back against bullies – and showing kids they don’t need to live in fear.

The glamour girl-turned-bodybuilder tells victims how to fight back in a new documentary that she’s starring in.

But as well as helping others who have suffered, filming the show made Jodie, 33, come to terms with her own painful demons.

She says she has been bullied all her life – from her schooldays to her first shot at fame in the reality show Essex Wives to her brief stint in Celebrity Big Brother.

“When I was at school I was bullied really badly and told I was ugly,” explains Jodie. “That’s why I decided to try to become a model – to prove I wasn’t ugly.

“But when I became famous I was bullied again over my appearance, my boobs, my nose, every part of me torn to shreds. Horrendous things were said about me.

“I know I brought some of it on myself by wearing skimpy outfits and by being outspoken, but neither of those is a crime. So I’d been bullied as a teenager and as an adult in my place of work.”

But making the programme wasn’t plain sailing for Jodie and she admits she was constantly left in tears by what she discovered during filming.

She says: “I went into schools and talked to kids who were being bullied, and tried to help them. But emotionally it’s been the hardest thing I’ve ever done. I was in tears every single day because I felt so heartbroken for them.

“But I knew it was the best thing I’d ever done.

“I have been successful at what I do and 10 years later I’m still here and pretty much a household name in the UK. I wanted to show the kids they don’t have to be beaten by the bullies. The kids responded to me brilliantly. They were so lovely and I’m still in touch with some of them.”

One family’s tragic story particularly moved Jodie.

She says: “The worst point was when we met a family whose son killed himself last year. He was 15 and bullied on Facebook. It was so horrendous.”

The documentary inspired the former model to set up her own Twitter campaign called Delete And Block.

The idea is that young people are often bullied via social networking sites such as Twitter and Facebook but are too scared to delete the bullies, fearing it will only get worse.

But Jodie says: “If bullies get deleted, they can’t see you any more.

"You might still have to see them at school but at least they can’t bully you online. It gives you back the power and control. If that boy who killed himself had deleted and blocked the bullies, he might still be alive now.”

Jodie herself hit rock-bottom after appearing on Celebrity Big Brother in 2006 and was the subject of taunts from Michael Barrymore, Pete Burns and George Galloway.

She felt so low she contemplated suicide. Jodie says: “I thought about driving my car into a lamp-post and I really considered it at length.

“I’d thought about how fast I need to be going to kill me instantly and how hard I’d need to hit the lamp-post, and which one was the best to do it to.

“I knew then I needed to sort my head out. I’d had a breakdown. But these days I’d rip them to shreds. That comes with age and wisdom and finding what makes you happy in life.”

And Jodie discovered what really makes her happy is bodybuilding. Her amazing transformation into a muscled
wonder-woman shocked the nation and won her an army of fans.

She says: “Bodybuilding has made me 200% more confident. It’s totally changed my life from three years ago when I started.

“It’s like being given a scalpel and surgeon and asked how you want your body to look.

“Before a competition, my gym routine is ridiculous. I can be in the gym for up to 10 hours every day.

“I’ll do two hours’ cardio, an hour and a half of weights, half an hour of abs and the rest of the time I’ll be practising my routine and posing.

“And when you’re competing, it’s seven protein shakes a day and not much real food. It’s really tough but I like it.

“I think I am addicted to bodybuilding but I don’t think I’m dangerously obsessed.”

But one area of her life where Jodie is having less success is romance. She’s single after dating a string of “weirdos”.

Jodie says: “I do love sex and I’m very open about it, but for the last two-and-a-half years I’ve refused to sleep with anyone. It takes so long for me to get into bed with someone because I know people are not always what they seem.

“Blokes get the hump with me because they’ll date me for so long and not get anything. One guy took me out for dinner five times and I wouldn’t even kiss him.

“I’m just waiting for the right person – I feel like a born-again virgin.

“Bodybuilding has definitely made me more attractive to men. I don’t walk around looking like a bloke. I just look normal. Then when I tense, people are like: ‘Bloody hell!’.

“I feel strong and powerful having the muscle and I’m more confident than I’ve ever been before.”

5 Myths Women NEED to Ignore

Champaign, IL (PRWEB) February 22, 2012

Women often subscribe to fitness fads, hearsay, and offbeat diets to get fit. According to top trainer Irene Lewis-McCormick, women must stop succumbing to pop culture in order to see greater strength and muscle definition. “It’s staggering the amount of misinformation that surrounds women and exercise,” says Lewis-McCormick. “With respect to the myths and misinformation, it’s no wonder women are so confused regarding what they should and should not do to achieve a strong, lean, healthy body.”

In her forthcoming book, "A Woman’s Guide to Muscle & Strength" (Human Kinetics, February 2012), Lewis-McCormick dispels five common fitness myths and explains why strength training should be a part of every woman’s fitness regimen.

1. Lifting weights creates bulky muscles.
Contrary to many women’s concerns, strength training using heavy weights won’t result in a manly bodybuilder-type physique. “Men and women who train similarly have the ability to increase their muscular strength, but because women have lower levels of testosterone and fewer and smaller muscle fibers than men, they do not have the ability to increase muscle size the way men do,” Lewis-McCormick says.

2. Weight loss requires more cardio and less strength training.
“Many women believe it’s necessary to include cardio only when they have a weight-loss goal, but nothing could be further from the truth,” Lewis-McCormick says. To lose weight, both cardiorespiratory exercise and strength training should be part of an exercise program. “Cardio exercise ups the ante on caloric expenditure and improves the health of your heart, blood vessels, brain tissues, and other vital organs,” Lewis-McCormick adds.

3. Workouts must be in the fat-burning zone.
Perhaps the most popular myth about aerobic exercise is that there is a specific range of heart rates in which people must exercise to burn fat as the primary fuel source. Lewis-McCormick explains, “Even many cardio machines display a fat-burning zone on their panels, encouraging people to exercise in a specific heart rate range to burn fat specifically.” For losing fat (and therefore weight), what matters is the difference between the number of calories you expend and the number of calories you consume. It matters little whether the calories burned during exercise come from fat or carbohydrate.

4. Trouble spots can be specifically targeted with strength training.
“Spot reduction is a mythical concept that encourages fat loss in a specific area or muscle group on the body,” Lewis-McCormick says. “Fat is lost throughout the body in a pattern dependent on genetics, sex, hormones, and age.” Overall body fat must be reduced in order for you to lose fat in any particular area. Although spot reduction isn’t possible, spot training can be done to strengthen a specific muscle group through aerobic activity and resistance training.

5. Certain exercises burn more calories than others.
“Just because you sweat more in a particular workout doesn’t necessarily mean that you are burning more calories than you would in another kind of workout,” says Lewis-McCormick. “It is the consistency of the exercise that causes weight loss.” When you select exercises, it’s important to understand what determines how many calories a body burns during exercise and why the body obeys certain rules that dictate the magnitude of caloric expenditure. With this knowledge, you can create realistic goals with respect to fat loss, increased lean mass, and selection of exercises. “Bottom line, the harder you work, the more calories you will expend, and you have to do this on a regular basis,” Lewis-McCormick adds.

“Strength training is one of the only forms of exercise that offers so many benefits to health and fitness, which makes it a solid choice of regular exercise,” Lewis-McCormick says. “If anything, strength training is especially important for women because it provides maximum opportunity to control weight and achieve many other long-term benefits.”

I treat every one as equal. They judge me on how I look and automatically think I'm conceited. In real life people respect me. On yahoo answers I've noticed people are rude to me. It's weird.

I like female bodybuilders. Not TOO massive, but definitely toned. :)

Lots of people like female body builders. There's a weekly post on thechive.com dedicated to "fit girls"

If the Objective is To discuss female body building and the perception of beauty:What's funny bout any of this clip

I wish i was able to keep her around,..but she's uppity&moody

Lenda Murray Muriane Nicolas Lesa Lewis Kim Harris Dayana Cadeau Iris Kyle Nancy Lewis

This gives me an idea for contests in the future

This reminds me of clips from GoddessHeather.com

I hate when i gotta sit all the way thru clips of lame fitnes chics to see Female bodybuilders

Russia's Katka

Sylva Mischke from Canada

Technically these are figure/fitness girls so they're not nearly as big as female bodybuilders.

She is not a bodybuilder&he is not skilled in the ways of wrestling
