    Body composition changes in female bodybuilders during preparation for competition

    Summary:

    Objective: To determine anthropometric and body composition changes in female bodybuilders during preparation for competition.

    Design: There was an attempt to match subjects in the control and experimental groups for height and percentage body fat (%BF) for the initial test of this longitudinal study.

    Subjects: Five competitive bodybuilders (X s.d.: 35.35.7 y; 167.33.7 cm; 66.386.30 kg; 18.33.5 %BF)and Five athletic females (X s.d.: 30.913.0 y; 166.93.9 cm; 55.943.59 kg; 19.13.3 %BF) were recruited from advertisements in a bodybuilding newsletter and placed on sports centre noticeboards.

    Interventions: The following measurements were conducted 12 weeks, 6 weeks and 3 ± 5 d before the bodybuilders' competitions: anthropometric profile, body density by underwater weighing, total body water via deuterium dilution and bone mineral mass from a dual-energy X-ray absorptiometry scan.

    A combination of the last three measurements enabled the %BF to the determined by a four compartment model.

    Results: A significant (P0.001) 5.80 kg body mass loss by the bodybuilders as they prepared for competition was primarily due to a reduction in fat mass (FM; ˙4.42 kg; 76.2%) as opposed to fat-free mass (FFM; ˙1.38 kg; 23.8%). The decreases in body mass and FM over the final 6 weeks were greater than those over the first 6 weeks.

    Their %BF decreased (P<0.001) from 18.3 to 12.7, whereas the values for the control group remained essentially unchanged at 19.1 ± 19.6 %BF. These body composition changes by the bodybuilders were accompanied by a significant decline (P<0.001) of 25.5mm (76.3 ± 50.8 mm) in the sum of eight skinfold thicknesses (triceps ‡subscapular‡biceps‡iliac crest‡supraspinale‡abdominal‡front thigh‡medial calf).

    Conclusions: Although the bodybuilders presented with low %BFs at the start of the experiment, they still significantly decreased their body mass during the 12 week preparation for competition and most of this loss was
    due to a reduction in FM as opposed to FFM.

    Sponsorship: Australian Research Council (small grants scheme).

    Comparison of Anthropometric Measures of Competitive Bodybuilders to Judges’ Scores

    Comparison of Anthropometric Measures of Competitive Bodybuilders to Judges’ Scores and a Comparison of Judges’ Scores

    This research compared physical characteristics of bodybuilders to judges’ rankings, and compared the judges’ rankings across three levels of judges: Elite, Trained, and Untrained.

    Twenty-nine male and nine female bodybuilding athletes consented to anthropometric and circumference measurements.

    The independent variables in this study were bodyfat, fat-free weight, and proportionality of muscle.

    Three groups of judges ranked male and female athletes in the Open, Novice, Collegiate, and Masters divisions.

    The measurements of proportionality of muscle, bodyfat, girths, and fat-free weight were analyzed using simple and multiple regression.

    The judges’ rankings in each class were compared using reliability coefficients, correlation, repeated measures analysis of variance, and the generalized theory for inter-rater reliability.
