There is an interesting ongoing debate in the world of fitness today on what the ‘perfect’ body image is and what exactly defines a healthy body image. Is it a muscular buffed body or a lean body shape? For a long time in our society, the thin people have always shamed those who were overweight or fat. But what’s more interesting is the fact that prior to 21st century, many cultures and communities considered people with heftier body shape to be the most attractive ones. It was a time when being plump was in trend and you’d be considered rich if you’re carrying more weight. The excess of body mass indicated that one belonged to the upper class and was able to afford good food in larger amounts. However, lately it’s believed that being has dangerous side effects. Some researches say that each person has a different healthy weight and we cannot make generalizations for all the people.
So what do you do to stay fit? You exercise, you hit the gym, you eat healthy. Now that brings us to the topic of bodybuilders. So are bodybuilders healthy people or not? They work out most of the time, whether it’s lifting the weights or working on their cardio. They build up their muscles and endurance, they eat only good food, no junk. They have a strict diet plan, they track their calories consumption everyday. So undoubtedly bodybuilders are the most fit and healthiest individuals on the planet.
When we talk about bodybuilding, we only think about men as it’s their sport, but many of you don’t know that women also have been innovative in this field. It’s not just the men’s department anymore. There are plenty of female bodybuilders in the world who are breaking all the norms, redefining ‘the perfect body image’, they are everything that we could only dream of. But it’s not easy, it’s years of hard work, they worked really hard to achieve their body shape. They exercised vigorously, they went through tough training, followed strict diet regimen, carefully used anabolic steroids, all this to achieve their dream goal.
