I don't think we have ever really had what I would think would be my favorite contest. I believe Female bodybuilding needs to have women who have developed their bodies to their limits with huge muscles, perfect symmetry, ripped but not shredded(Dieted to safe levels for women.), while still keeping the fact they are women and should have their hair, makeup, tanning goop. etc. done professionally. They should have suits that fit right. The rules of what their muscular development they should strive for should be etched in stone so that the women know exactly what to train for.
In truth we will never see a proper contest from the IFBB. They are screwing up the twigagories just as bad as they messed up bodybuilding. Hell the IFBB can't even get men's bodybuilding right anymore. But the truth is the IFBB has always been a Weider promotion vehicle rather than a proper bodybuilding federation.
One of the reasons people look back on the "Golden age" (80's, mid 90's) was they got some things way better than they have lately. Things like promotion and prize money. Things like women looking like women. Things like not dieting to insane levels. Things like the women having their hair, makeup, etc. done up right.
Now something else the Golden age had and that is most of the women were something special. Many were flat out beautiful, now I'm not saying that there are not beautiful women in bodybuilding today because there are but today with the unhealthy dieting much of what these women possess today is hidden by over dieting to unhealthy levels. Women and men are different, women can not diet to as low a level as a man and still be healthy, so the dieting levels need to be set right for each set so they stay healthy at contest time. It was also something with the women back then working out to create a body they wanted. In the past there were few people telling the women to do stupid things like over dieting, or using things like creatine supplements improperly thereby creating bloated guts, etc.
Now many will tell you the big problem today in women's bodybuilding is steroids, but the simple fact is steroids are used by Fitness women, Physique women and I'll bet quite a few of the really tiny Bikini women. Steroids are used by people in all sorts of sports, etc. And while they do have some problems, they are not as big a factor as over dieting and improper use of supplements.
Now we in the USA have a big problem with steroids in that they are illegal except as prescription medications. This puts a big problem out there and that is there is no way you really know what you are getting from an illegal source.
Anyway until we have a proper federation even the twigagories, let alone women's bodybuilding are going to be a mess.
