The manosphere has a thing for bodybuilders.
There’s a bodybuilding subreddit, a bodybuilder blog and a bodybuilders Facebook page.
But while there’s no shortage of bodybuilders on the internet, it’s also no shortage for women.
In fact, women are still the fastest growing demographic in the industry, and they make up around three-quarters of the current bodybuilding market.
The trend is undeniable: female bodybuilders are increasingly sought after for their athleticism, beauty and sex appeal, but also because of the attention that they get from their fans.
“Women are more popular than ever, with women and girls being the main attraction of bodybuilding,” said Lisa Jones, an associate professor of human sexuality at the University of Tasmania.
“The women’s body is often the one to get it covered and the men’s body in a lot of cases, because the men aren’t as popular as women.”
The industry’s response to this is an industry-wide campaign to encourage women to compete in competitive bodybuilding.
But not everyone is as enthusiastic about bodybuilding as it’s marketed.
“[The bodybuilder] image is very dangerous,” said Jenny Sperling, a lecturer in human sexuality and gender at Griffith University.
Women have been told that if they do competitive body training, they’re risking a long-term health issue, including osteoporosis, and can cause heart disease and obesity.
“I’ve heard women say that they have never competed before and I’ve heard from some women that they’ve never seen their partner,” she said.
Some bodybuilding gyms have also been accused of sexual harassment.
Bodybuilding is also seen as a way to make money, which is why some gyms are being set up to be marketed to women.
If you’ve ever been in a gym and been told you’re not allowed to work out in the room because you’re a woman, you know what I’m talking about,” Ms Jones said.”
Bodybuilding gymbands and magazines have been made to look like the ideal gym environment, but the fact is, women can do competitive work in gyms and gyms don’t necessarily promote that as a safe place for women to work.
“A study published last year found that female body builders who compete have a higher prevalence of depression and anxiety than the general population.
Many women in the community have also questioned the marketing of the industry.
In the same way that the media is not to be associated or associated with an individual with a disability, so too should bodybuilding not be a body weight-training event for anyone.” “
Bodybuilders should avoid all marketing that could be perceived as patronising, patronising and patronising,” the statement read.
“In the same way that the media is not to be associated or associated with an individual with a disability, so too should bodybuilding not be a body weight-training event for anyone.”
So how can bodybuilding keep attracting women?
Ms Jones says that while there are some women in bodybuilding who do make it to the top, most of them have not achieved the level of success that most bodybuilders have.
They are a lot like the other women who want to get into bodybuilding, she said: “They just don’t know how.”
“I think that’s why a lot women don’t want to compete,” she added.
For Ms Jones, bodybuilding is still about personal growth, which includes learning to cope with life on your own.
And while there is plenty of support available, she doesn’t recommend anyone try to make their way to the industry alone.
She recommends that women and their friends learn how to train in a gyms setting, and then look into becoming a body builder themselves.
