Becoming A Female Body Builder

By: Tori Malloy

Are you wondering how a female can go from a normal woman to an extreme Body Builder?

Bodybuilding is the use of progressive resistance exercise to control and develop one's musculature. An individual who engages in this activity is referred to as a bodybuilder.

A few fitness elements that are needed to become a proper body builder include: Agility, Balance, Coordination, Power, Speed, and Reaction Time
Agility can be increased by performing exercises that have a full range of motion.
Balance needs to be met by widening the shoulder girth and the back.
Coordination can be improved by building up strength and toning your muscles.
Power enhancement includes becoming quick and strong.
Speed can be increased by doing daily sprints, hills, and bleachers by strengthening your legs.
Reaction Time exercises include playing dodge ball or Woods Running, which I will explain below.

Nutrition & Strength

Nutrition is important to bodybuilding. You must eat certain foods to build muscle. These foods include:

  • Beets
  • Beef
  • Brown Rice
  • Oranges
  • Cantaloupe
  • Cottage Cheese
  • Eggs
  • Milk
Strength is one of the key parts of becoming a bodybuilder. When you picture a bodybuilder, you can see the muscles all over their body. Becoming as strong as you can all over is something people believe is the biggest part of bodybuilding, and that is true. Building up your body and increasing strength is extremely important.
