When you think of buff arms, strong shoulders, a broad chest and protruding veins, you probably imagine the morphed physique of a male bodybuilder. However, men aren’t the only ones bulking up way beyond the normal standards.
Prior to 1977, bodybuilding was considered a strictly male-oriented sport, but once women began pumping iron to transform their bodies into exaggerated shapes, the game changed.
The opinions regarding women bodybuilders vary depending on who you ask. Some people say they admire their unique beauty and strength, while others find them incredibly grotesque.
Either way, one thing’s for sure: These are definitely 20 female bodybuilders you wouldn’t want to piss off.
To the best of our knowledge, all of these images are indeed women and have not been altered or photoshopped.
