Women In Body Building: Why Are They Given Less Recognition?

It is often said, “Whatever a man can do, a woman can do better.” Yes, don’t underestimate women. There are women engineers, pilots, captains and host of others occupying high positions in various professional institutions, but how do we view a woman training her body to be Mrs. Atlas?

Even though there are many female bodybuilders, they are given less support and recognition than men. As a matter of fact, women have certain things which attract them to men.  Men like women with great smile, smell good, yes a lady’s perfume can sweep a man off his feet, soft and tender body, set of beautiful white teeth etc.

I can therefore understand why many men don’t like women following bodybuilding careers, because all the attractiveness and beautiful feminine features are now masculine features. The question is if women athletes that participate in sports, run, swim, throw javelin etc, what’s wrong if a woman involves in bodybuilding?

Many people are suffering from sicknesses such as obesity and diabetes, due to lack of training. To me, a woman who takes care of her body by training enjoys very good health than a diabetic patient or someone suffering from obesity. The body of a female bodybuilder may not be attractive to some people but they are very healthy.

This is the reason I think people should give them the support instead of hate, after all many female bodybuilders don’t do it for men, but because they love it. Research reveals that resistance training  help strengthen weak muscles, thus; eliminating shoulder, knee and back pains. Eating daily without training leads to many ailments, especially when getting older, it worth therefore to live a healthy life.
