She’s Strictly A Female, Female

I saw a fascinating British documentary called Supersize She.  The movie chronicled the efforts of a professional woman bodybuilder named Joanna to be #1 in her sport.

Everything was great until the interviewer asked about steroid use.  That’s when Joanna blew up.

My eyes have been blacked out to preserve my privacy.

I don’t blame her.  Women bodybuilders literally work their butts off.  It is nothing but a vicious stereotype that the pros use steroids that turn them into men.

As a regular at the YMCA; someone who routinely pushes back 40 lbs on the Seated Leg Press  – yes, you read that right: I said 4 ZERO – I believe I’m qualified to speak for these women and put to rest some of the steroid rumors swirling about them.

  • Women bodybuilders are just naturally flat-chested.  Except when they have real, natural breasts that look like 2 grapefruit sitting up high on their rock-hard pecs.
  • It’s merely coincidence that all female bodybuilders sing basso profundo.
  • It is NOT true that steroids make them super aggressive.  They are still feminine and have no trouble picking up men.   Often with just one arm.
  • That Norelco Triple Head Flexible Shaver in their gym bags is for their legs.  Of course they don’t need to shave their backsides or naturally lantern-like jaws.
  • That is NOT their “package”.  They just keep their lipstick and car keys in their bikini bottoms while onstage.

The extreme musculature of the woman bodybuilder is all about training, and has nothing to do with using dangerous and illegal drugs.   So to all the haters, I say stop teasing them for looking masculine -especially you drag queens.

Before you get the crap kicked out of you.

    Let’s not forget the importance of diet – raw meat is full of protein and does wonders for building muscle, especially when you wrestle your meal to the ground before digging in for dinner.

    I asked a body builder once if she used steroids and she said only for medicinal purposes. It was to relieve the pain of her sore knuckles which dragged on the ground as she walked. Can’t fault her for that.


  3. I couldn’t watch the entire video. I don’t like the enormous veins that body builders get, regardless of their sex.


  4. Several years ago, one of my trainers began to enter Fitness competitions. They aren’t bodybuilding but they are a combo of light bodybuilding and gymnastics. I went to one of the events. Oh my, seeing some of these women up close was unbelievable. Their muscles had muscles. And yes, I swear there was 5 o’clock shadow.

      I have nothing but admiration for women who are into fitness. But the indignation the hard-core bodybuilders show when asked about steroids, when the symptoms are obvious? Pul-eeze!

    Do steroids make them grow Adams Apples? Just curious. I had a feeling our local She Builder was dodging my question when she told me she’d swallowed her gum 🙂


  6. John Hunsinger says:

    I think some of the male bodybuilders look just as ridiculous as the female ones. I don’t think God meant for us to be that Bulgy.


    • pegoleg says:

      Almost, but at least with men the steroids merely overload the normally male characteristics. In women, steroids literally change them, and not just the muscles.


  7. Tar-Buns says:

    Have to admit I’m not a fan of the extreme bodybuilding. The women, however, seem more surreal than the men. I watched the short clip you linked above. Hello, did you hear the voices? Did you see the face, so angular? Almost like bad drag queens. Sorry, not a fan.


  8. I couldn’t watch the whole video either…yikes!

    I used to love going to the gym (three times a week for an hour)…all I wanted was to maintain a healthy weight and not have my upper arms look like chicken wings. I think there is such a thing as “too much of a good thing.”



    • pegoleg says:

      I did a bit of research on the long-term effects of steroids on women, and even if they stop using, most of the symptoms don’t go away. It’s also really bad for some internal organs. Doesn’t make sense to me.
