Female body building began in the 1960's, but contests and competitions did not start until the late 70's. When the competitions first started, they were more like beauty contests, with the women wearing high heels, and bikinis. They also did not do the poses like the crab, and lateral spread. That changed in the 1980's when women started to take body building more seriously and wanted to participate in contests that more closely resembled that of their male counterparts.
The most essential elements for women bodybuilders are vitamins and mineral formulas. To be specific, vitamin C should be divided into 3 equal portions and each portion should be taken after every meal throughout the day. This means during breakfast, lunch and supper.
Many female bodybuilders just go to the gym, tone up their physique and never engage in any weight lifting exercise and if asked why they ignore weight lifting, they are categorical that what they don’t want is build huge muscles. Most females do not want to develop muscles and look more like the muscular men they see in the gym. They are ignorant of the fact that even if they tried to, they would never develop huge muscles. But the failure of ladies to lift weights during workouts is a terrible mistake. They are missing on the many wonderful benefits which lifting of weights can give a person. This terrible female developed myth associated with building huge muscles has created immense fear on women, making them to refrain from training with the available weights which is detrimental to their overall well being and overall body fitness.
