Natural Body Builders Live Healthy
Many people think that body building is an unhealthy sport.
The truth is that natural body builders are some of the healthiest people I know. They understand that their body is the greatest asset they have and they treat it as such. Nothing is more important than health to a body builder and they take care not to do anything that will jeopardize that.
Women Do Not Grow Big Muscles
I just got these pictures from the photographer that was at the competition in Middletown this past October (2007).
I have been training for competition for about 3 years. Many women say that they do not lift weights because they do not want big muscles.
Look at those little chicken wings! I really do not have a body builders physique, my muscles are too long and women never build up huge muscles.
Building muscle is good for everyone. When your muscles are stronger, your joints have an easier job of it. Also, muscles burn more calories than fat so your metabolism is higher when you are stronger. Body building builds your immune system too.
NABBA Nationals, Natural Body Building Competition-2007
|Comparing my 2006 rear bicep pose with the same pose for 2007 my muscles have not grown even though I have continued to work out.
I placed 4th in my age group and 5th over all at the NABBA National Championships held in Middletown, PA this past October. I love doing it and had a great time hanging around with healthy like minded people.
Yes, It takes a lot of focus, not work. Work is not fun and I definitely have fun body building. I really enjoy the ability to create my health.

Body Building Is Art – Science – Skill
I think that one of the reasons I enjoy it so much is that it is science, art and skill. I notice that other activities I enjoy are a combination of all three as well.
I enjoy the science part of the sport. It is amazing how easily small changes can effect your body. You do not have to be a body builder to practice balanced carb, fat, protein eating skills. Everyone can benefit from the advantages of hydration. Understanding what certain chemicals do to your body will assist everyone in living a better life. If everyone took a body fat analysis twice a year they would have a better understanding of how what they eat effects their ability to maintain ideal weights.

Just because you are not a body builder doesn’t mean you can not benefit from a natural and healthy lifestyle. You can be at the peak of your health at any age when you decide to change your future.

No More Body Building For Deb
Body building was something that was on my “bucket list” for a long time and I just decided to do it when I turned 50. I participated in competitive body building for about 5 years…
I stopped because just got tired of spending so much time at the gym and being on a restricted diet to maintain the physique.
During that time I won several gold medals and 1st place trophies. (The older you get the easier it is too win!) LOL
