The art of sculpting the body to show muscular finess. This can vary from extremely amateur, young, teenage kids who know very little about bodybuilding, to professional IBFF bodybuilders that take numerous steroids and live for what the majority of the populace would see as freakish musculature.
Bodybuilding is like Fight Club...I was on a plane the other day, sitting in my seat at the back of the plane. I looked up and saw a guy get on the plane...big guy. I knew he lifted. I knew he ate oatmeal and egg whites for breakfast. He looked at me. He knew I lifted. He knew I had a protein shake before bed. We didnt say one word to each other ('cause he was all the way up front and I was in the back), but I knew...and he knew. Now that's some cool, Fight Club type shit. Bodybuilding is the best thing since sliced bread...whole grain bread that is. - adapted from the memoirs of g_g_g_unit

A male or female who engages in bodybuilding, which is the process of developing increased amount of muscle fiber while minimizing body fat levels. These two processes are usually done separately, as they both require either a large amount of strength training or a large amount of cardiovascular exercise.

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 don't really prefer very big muscular men, studies have also proven that men always presume that women would find them more attractive if they(men) had more size than what they have.

It is a deep seated desire in men to be strong and when they see someone that is stronger. The easiest and only possible way to bring him down becomes by way of non-direct confrontation. This explains why one sees a lot of myths perpetuated about bodybuilders like bodybuilding makes your penis small; bodybuilders only eat, sleep and train; bodybuilders cant have proper sex; bodybuilders die young; bodybuilding is bad for ones heart, etc (see Brandon Naylor 's definition). Past experiences or situations where one sees big muscular men in positions demanding physical strength (Bouncers in night clubs, debt-collectors, etc.) can magnify these feelings of weakness and insecurity. Past childhood experiences of bullying by bigger boys in school can also be responsible for this.

A male or female who engages in bodybuilding, which is the process of developing increased amount of muscle fiber while minimizing body fat levels. These two processes are usually done separately, as they both require either a large amount of strength training or a large amount of cardiovascular exercise. Bodybuilders are envied

Bodybuilders also seem to be enjoying their "own world" of training in the gym, and this is also annoying to others who see a bodybuilder as a kind of "at peace with himself human". Not many activities or professions give this kind of a feeling to the man that doesn't train. A bodybuilder is also at ease with his body and usually doesn't mind showing his body to others, and certainly doesn't feel awkward admiring his own. Every human being (man or woman) that looks in a mirror wishes to see himself or herself in good form, but many are not satisfied. People who are extremely uncomfortable with the way they look, and do not have the motivation to change it, tend to find the bodybuilder's fascination and confidence with his own body unnerving. The idea of someone that does enjoys his own reflection in a mirror creates envious feelings towards them.

Again, there are two types of reactions that are the outcome of seeing a bodybuilder. One is of awe and one is of envy. When a man sees a bodybuilder he is either going to be openly impressed with the size (awe), or will show envy due to his own inborn, deep-seated insecurity (envy).

Despite negative attitudes towards the sport exhibited by those with self-esteem issues, many people have much respect for bodybuilders (esp. the more professional) and hold them in high regard due to their incredible passion, dedication, commitment, and the hard work they put in day in and day out.

The act of simultaneously fisting someone's mouth and vagina / anus. This 'accordian' like squeezing action results in a motion not unlike that of a bodybuilder flexing their pectoral muscles.

If a couple becomes well aquianted with this manouver, and indeed both enjoy it, they may adopt the code phrase "going to the gym". Ie, "I'd love to come to drinks but Sally and I are going to the gym to do some bodybuilding tonight (wink wink)"

Usually verbalised in an Arnold Schwarzenegger accent. Ie, "Da Baady Bill Der"
"Damian is quite the bodybuilder, due mainly to his long arms and soft fists"

Easily the sexiest, most erotic kind of female in the universe. A female bodybuilder is a superior kind of woman. She is in touch with her femininity, and she realizes that her inner being is power, not weakness. Because she is so in touch with her inner power, she develops her muscles to an astonishing degree, able to lift incredible masses of weights that most men are unable to touch. She does this in order to break from the cage that society puts women in, to show that she is a powerful individual who no one can restrain.

Many men are unable to admit their attraction to these powerful women, for societal stereotypes indicate that women are supposed to be thin, whiny, and submissive. Female bodybuilders threaten that stereotype to such a degree that most men are threatened by them. Similarly, men are threatened by the fact that these women are far more muscular and far stronger than them, for it makes them feel that they are not living up the their stereotyped gender role of being the 'dominant provider.' Yet nearly all men, at a deep unconscious level, are very attracted to these powerful women, and only the real men are able to admit it to themselves.

Female bodybuilders are more often than not extremely kind, energetic, and resourceful. They spend their time wisely, fit more into a day than most people, and truly grab life by the horns. They are a threat to many, yet they are sexy beyond belief. They are also known to be better than any other kind of woman in bed.
