When you think of female bodybuilders, the word “revolting” immediately springs to mind. For years, men have been drawn to taught, fit women. However, things get dicey when the line moves from taught and fit to “works out until one looks like an androgynous sea creature.” Well, guess which camp the residents of this list fall into? For months and months, we’ve given you, our dear readers, nothing but beautiful women. Well all that changes now. These women are beautiful in their own way, which is a nice way of saying that they’re beautiful in no way at all. Some of these images COULD be Photoshopped . Dear Lord, I hope that some of these images have been Photoshopped. Otherwise…yuck. Here are twenty women who could stand to put down the weights and maybe just stick to power pilates. Also, please note that I didn’t include the women’s names. Mostly because it’s mean. Actually, it’s mostly because names for photos are hard to look up and no one cares. But also because using real names would be mean. So I juxtaposed female celebrity names with the images. Fun, right?
Greene is an avid artist who often creates self-portraits to help himself build and maintain his ideal physique.   In August 2011, he exhibited some of his work to the public; at the exhibition, he stated, "As a professional bodybuilder, I'm a master sculptor. The art show made me realize that I've always been an artist: my medium the human physique. My life is what I make it, just like the art I've produced on canvas and on stage. This art show makes this statement. I'm celebrating some personal accomplishments and my own artistic expression." 
This randomized double-blind cross-over study assessed protein (PRO) requirements during the early stages of intensive bodybuilding training and determined whether supplemental PRO intake (PROIN) enhanced muscle mass/strength gains. Twelve men [ +/- (SD) yr] received an isoenergetic PRO (total PROIN --1) or carbohydrate (CHO; total PROIN --1) supplement for 1 mo each during intensive ( h/day, 6 days/wk) weight training. On the basis of 3-day nitrogen balance (NBAL) measurements after wk on each treatment ( +/- and - +/- g N/day, respectively), the PROIN necessary for zero NBAL (requirement) was - --1. The recommended intake (requirement + 2 SD) was - --1. However, strength (voluntary and electrically evoked) and muscle mass [density, creatinine excretion, muscle area (computer axial tomography scan), and biceps N content] gains were not different between diet treatments. These data indicate that, during the early stages of intensive bodybuilding training, PRO needs are approximately 100% greater than current recommendations but that PROIN increases from to --1 do not enhance muscle mass/strength gains, at least during the 1st mo of training. Whether differential gains would occur with longer training remains to be determined.
