Yeah man what a wimp.
Yeah man what a wimp.
Attitudes towards bodybuilders generally fall into two categories: awe or envy.
It has been a primal instinct in men to have qualities of muscle size and strength, because for many years, that is how men have protected their woman and protected your belongings from other men and beasts. If a man had strong physical qualities, the man had the ability to defeat weaker men in fights and take his woman and his goods. Though in today's modern, civilized society this generally does not happen, the fact remains that a bodybuilder's physique sends out very strong messages of masculinity to other men, which they subconsciously find threatening. When people see bodybuilders they also see dedication, seriousness, size and strength.
Women also find muscles and some size a positive trait in their men, as it again ensures that they are with someone that can protect them. This again is a deep-seated subconscious feeling and is not overt. In the animal kingdom it is about the strongest male that they want to mate with, so that the off-springs that they produce have the best possible genes. Though many studies have proven that women do...
Body Builder #2: "After you rub my pectorals down with this coco butter."
Male - Of course the most famous and easy to imagine. Arnold Schwarzenegger is the quintessential image of this body builder.
Child - Freaky little kids. There's not many, but the most famous is probably Richard Sandrak. At age 12, he has the body of Tom Cruise. At the rate he's going, he might be the next Arnold.
Female - Women that generally gets the exclamation "holy hell!". I do not know any famous female body builders and I honestly don't want to. Looking at pictures of them frightens me. Not because they have big muscles, but because they literally look like men. I don't even know why they bother wearing bras as there is literally NOTHING there! And if their breasts are like that, then you can't help but shudder at the mental image of what might be DOWN THERE!
Either way, body builders are rare because, well, of who they are. Not only is that kind of body extremely difficult to maintain, but it's also ridiculous to have. You want a body that enables you to jog 3 miles without stopping, not a body that makes you exhausted after walking up the stairs. Supposedly, this is the case with body builders. Their bodies are so heavy and bulky that they have trouble moving.
Aside from that, though, body builders are...how should I put this....hideous. Not just the females, but all three types. The extreme bulk of the males (including children) makes them look deformed while the females....well, that part is obviou...
