There is an interesting dichotomy in the world of fitness today, over what defines a healthy body image. In large part, thin people, both male and female have, for a long time, shamed those considered fat or overweight. It’s interesting that in many centuries previous to the 21st, heftier people were (in some cultures/areas of the world) considered the attractive ones, as a surplus of body mass usually indicated that one was of the upper class, therefore being able to afford better food and larger amounts. Recently, however, there has been debate over whether being overweight actually has the negative effects it has long been believed to. Some doctors argue that some body types naturally carry more weight in certain areas, and other simply argue that each person actually has their own healthy weight and that such determinations cannot be generalized for entire masses of people. Finally, there is the consideration of whether constantly berating, insulting and condescending people who are carrying an extra few pounds will wear on their psyche and cause mental problems. It makes sense that it will.
Completely outside of this topic however, are bodybuilders. Are they fit and healthy individuals or not? Let's break down some things to consider. Bodybuilders work out constantly. This is obviously a plus, as working out, whether it be cardio or weights, is good for the body, gets the heart pumping and blood flowing, while building muscle and endurance. They also eat healthy (most of the time). You’ll never encounter a bodybuilder who doesn’t keep a diet log and calorie count to some extent. A careful and thought out diet, in conjunction with a rigorous workout routine, are definitely in the pros column for bodybuilders being among the healthiest people on the planet.
However, there is a massive con: the supplements. If you can show me a professional bodybuilder who doesn’t use some kind of dangerous supplement to give them the edge at the gym, I’ll show you someone who squeezes clean urine out of weaker people. On top of supplements to cut fat, increase energy, increase testosterone and whatever else causes people to get so big they walk like terminators, consider the dehydration (the vast majority of) these people go through on competition day. So if you’re on board with my argument; the jury is still out on whether bodybuilders are healthy overall. But it’s not about the health; it’s about the look.
Whether they are healthy, however, isn’t always the point. Arnold Schwarzenegger’s career just depended on his massive pipes and sub-basic control of English. Lou Ferrigno basically became the Hulk because he was a massive human being. But enough about male bodybuilders, it’s the women you’re here to see.
There are quite a number of female bodybuilders who look fantastic. There is nothing wrong with a woman who loves to pump iron. There are plenty of female bodybuilders who do have larger muscles than myself most guys I know, but who rock it, and look hot. Admittedly, however, while writing this I did find myself imagining how many cases of beer some of these ladies could carry around for me. Here is a list of the top 10 wicked hot female body builders. If any lifters out there disagree with list membership or ranking, put down the protein shake and let it be heard in the comments section. Enjoy, lads.

2 Erica Cordie
1 Brooke Holladay
There is no way to put this subtly. Brooke Holladay is all kinds of blonde haired, blue eyed, all-American sexy. She competed professionally in the late 2000s and won two competitions. Outside of bodybuilding, she was an accomplished dancer and was briefly a gymnast. Her actual career in bodybuilding, like Erica Cordie’s was very short, but awesome. She's just, you know, so great.
