    Post Figure competition gaining acceptance in the bodybuilding world


    Feminine physique

    Figure competition, which emphasizes beauty over brawn, is gaining acceptance in the bodybuilding world.

    The look is still muscular and cut. Competitors must have strong definition in their upper bodies, abs and legs, emphasized by exceptionally low body fat but without the heavy striation and veining seen in bodybuilding.

    Called "figure" competition, the division is new to the bodybuilding circuit, but growing fast. Some early amateur competitions about five years ago brought out 75 women; now the same shows draw 200-plus.

    perhaps this will influence regular body building over time to the point where we see slimmer figures and less GH gut...like the good ol' days.
