Thread: Bodybuilder vs. Male Fitness Model... Ladies Feel Free To Chime In

  1. #1

    Default Bodybuilder vs. Male Fitness Model... Ladies Feel Free To Chime In

    I recently posed a question to several female friends and asked which body type do they prefer and astoundingly ever single one of them preferred the toned guys over the over-muscular guys , the promoters have figured this out and so the male fitness category was invented, they're looking at the bottom line which is the all mighty dollar which comes from attendance , competitors, advertisement and merchandising... When it comes to a healthy look and being in shape the general public finds being lean far more appealing than say a mass monster at 280 lbs. standing on stage sucking air while wearing a thong... True bodybuilding hopefully isn't becoming a dying breed and it will be a sad day when the ifbb is no longer the headliner and is the undercard to men in board shorts at fitness shows.

    Like all true bodybuilders I get my supplements from the manufacturer instead of a marketing company I get my supplements at www.truenutrition.com

    Ask the average guy which they prefer to look at: Bikini or figure. I'm sure most we say bikini girls.
    Less muscle appeals to most people.

    Only problem with Male Physique division is that it is not necessary to build the legs. Other than that, they looks like '70 bodybuilder. Realistic and attainable. Better than the drugged up baloon.

    70s bodybuilders still had a great deal of mass and I'm sure they would be too bulky for what they are looking for in this division. All this division wants is Abercrombie models and that's it.

    It's pretty simple really...a lot of women look at bodybuilders and if they're not just someone who really loves it and respects it for the discipline and dedication it takes, their mind wanders to other things...steroids, and the prevailing "medical opinions" on them...we must be moody, uncontrollable assholes who can't restrain ourselves...narcissism...they think that if we put this much time into ourselves, how can we have time to give them?....arrogance...which probably has some basis with a lot of guys..

    Fact is, we're the oddities! As has been pointed out, this is nothing new. I'd bet my next paycheck that out of an average crowd of 100 ladies at least 95 of them would call the physique guys more appealing.

    I'm a big fan of the old school physiques, Arnold, Ferrigno, Franco, etc, tiny waist, wide shoulders, huge arms and chest, and classic posing. At the same time, there are things I like about new school bodybuilding, the mass monsters, etc. At the end of the day, we train for ourselves, not for the opposite sex. A guy may have a great physique, but if he is fugly in the face, he may not attract anyone, and vice versa
    Plus bi also means i have more choices than you, thats all._DKalban

    Does it really matter? Most women that get asked stuff don't know what they want anyway, so it's almost a useless opinion.


    And I hate the word toned. I think the shit should be abolished with the words swag and all variations of "hater"

    ^^ So only two women have chimed in thus far. LOL - Kidding. ^^


    OK, so this why its funny to me male BBers say they train and compete to get women.

    Yeah right, just a lame excuse to mask their real intensions, which is so laughable to most folks.

    Being on stage exposing themselves to get any ounce of attention while showing off their feminine side.

    So all this talk about many women liking mass freaks has always been bullshit, and false sense of security for delusional meatheads.

    ^There you go, natural bodybuilders, that's why I'm natural and I'll always be natural, there's nothing more repulsive then varicose veins in the arms, there's nothing natural about it!

    No I meant juiced up bodybuilders squeezing into their tiny bikini cut speedos.
