The Weird World of Female Bodybuilding

Some people have really weird ideas about beauty. We’ve previously featured The Weird World of Competitive Dog Grooming, but these ladies featured below have chosen to modify themselves instead of their pets. Well… to each their own. The pictures in this gallery have been taken by German photographer Martin Schoeller and full collection of portraits can be found in his book “Female Bodybuilders“.

    Dangerous to health, also they have stopped looking like a woman. Check out Figure 8 (Jaana Kunitz) now there’s some beautiful “woman” w/toned bodies & they sure look healthy to me! I’m going to buy the DVDs & try this, it makes total sense, plus research Jaana she’s a dancer who competed & won in Latin dancing, ballroom etc. Now there’s a lady who knows how to be fit & does it in a very reasonable & easy to follow method. I can’t wait to get started!

    Great job, you assume all women’s grand goal is to be beautiful, and that these women are doing this because they somehow have warped beauty standards? Maybe instead they’re doing this to be strong, healthy, badass, and attain their own ideals?

    Also is no different than male bodybuilders? Some of y’all in the comments would be surprised at how much research and dedication these badass people put into their physique, my brother does bodybuilding as a hobby and easily has the best diet in the entire family. These people are really on top of their nutrition game. You could argue pushing your body this way is unnatural, but Olympic athletes also push their bodies to the extreme and no one says they’re unnatural or not “feminine” or “masculine” enough.

    Anyway I’m sure many women are happy to be in bodybuilding, like that 82 year old bodybuilder grandma who beat the shit out of a burglar who broke into her house.

    To me it’s ugly. But everybody has his own taste. The same with male bodybuilding.

    Bodybuilding is spiritual strength and beauty. It is beyond concepts of how a girl or boy should look. All that is just mainstream programing. Female bodybuilding is embracing everything a woman is capable of. That translates into symmetry and perfection yes?

    Any one of these girls are all extremely sexy oh that muscle definition is so stunningly beautiful.I would love to spend the rest of my life as a partner and companion to one of these goddesses. Just to be along side her in training and experiencing the awesom dedication and passion and enthusiasm she has when completing a certain set of reps and she has pushed herself to the extreme limits.That is a high that only two people that are sharing that moment can experience.I salute everyone of you in these pictures I will be alongside you in every gym and every contest you compete in.
    Special salute to Michelle Rayburn.♡

    I think this looks weird, but no weirder than male bodybuilders. And if this is what makes them happy, who am I to make fun of them?

    Do any of you idiots know where and when steroids came from ? During World war II. Adolf Hitler forced his German scientists to develop this garbage to make an invincible army to kill innocent people and take over the world. That’s a fact. When you alter God’s creation with evil steroids you are making yourself an abomination to GOD ! So, the next time you steroid induced muscular idiots find yourselves in front of a mirror admiring and self-worship yourself, don’t forget to thank your father of steroids Adolf Hitler !!! When you self-worship your steroid induced bodies, you are putting youself above GOD. The LORD saith, “Put no other god’s before ME !!! GOD is a jealous GOD, but HE is also a vengent GOD ! When you die and pass from this Earth and your steroid induced bodies are rotting in the ground and the only thing left is your Spiritual souls and you are before GOD. What will you say to Him ? I know what GOD will say to you, “DEPART FROM ME FOR I NEVER KNEW YOU” !!! Then you will understand the true meaning of HELL . GOD HELP YOU PEOPLE !!!!

    @John Charles Campbell,
    Obviously since Fox News is named after a wild animal that has caused lots of property damage to livestock, it is evil

    Did I say Hitler invented steroids? Wow, sorry. I meant he invented methamphetamine. Still evil, but now instead I condemn all meth addicts to the fiery depths of HELL!!!
    Oh wait, let’s pray for their poor souls instead. I think the bible mentioned something about how we should regard people like that.
    And while you’re at it, please pray for me. I obviously have some major issues regarding religion and self-image but deep down I’m a good person who only wants the best for everyone.

    Its absolutely not feminine and shows no female features. I can understand fitness to get a better figure, but to destroy all feminine trails I just dont understand that. Masculine is muscle. Feminine implies soft and curves… a big hip… Evolution programmed guys to look for these things as the soft implies kindness and that the woman would treat the children well. The big hips for birth giving.. etc. Evolution. I just dont understand why woman want to become men. i dont want to become homosexual. I like the differences, thats whats exciting. I hope that Woman by themselves become sensible again. Thats what I always admired in Woman, but nowvthey are even more worse than the guys. Sad World and useless.
