Where do female bodybuidlers come from? The guys tend to be former or injured high school football players, wrestlers, powerlifters (or some similar athlete) who suffer an injury that makes it impossible for them to continue in the original sport. They hit the weights to recover or build strength and get a bodybuilding bug. Is there a similar factory for female bodybuilders? Are they former gymnasts? Cheerleaders? What is the typical path that leads women to become bodybuilders?
And at what age does this happen for women? The guys seem to take to BB in the late teens but women seem to turn to bodybuilding slightly later. Why is that? Anyone have thoughts on this?
