Why more young women are body building – BBC News

Bodybuilding is a growing trend in the female population. Hard work and commitment can pay off in the end and help build women’s confidence as well as their feminine physique. It takes dedication and it is a lifestyle change, but it can greatly benefit your health.

Key Takeaways:

  • For many women who are interested in weight lifting, it feels good to be able to walk into a gym and be able to lift more than the men.
  • It’s extremely difficult, but it’s worth it to many of them: some describe it as “literal torture” that is worthwhile.
  • Lifting weights won’t make you look like a man: this is a myth.

“I was a size zero. I wanted to actually have that curvy figure and that’s why I got into training.”
