Wait, let me explain…
I’m actually an aspiring figure competitor.
The bodybuilding division features the really “big” women — those with the largest muscles. Following that is the physique division, and then figure. Those with the “smallest” muscles would be in the bikini division.
So I won’t actually be that big. In fact, it’s really more like an optical illusion. I’ll be getting smaller, and my muscles will therefore appear bigger.
It’s a weird subculture. I don’t identify with it. You have to get spray-tanned and wear high heels, makeup, and jewelry. You strut around in a bikini.
It’s probably more like a beauty pageant than a sport.
Yeah, it’s really not me; It’s not me at all.
But it is.
My name is Krista Schnell, and I am an aspiring female bodybuilder. I plan to compete in a figure competition, based on what’s possible given my current musculature.
I’m at the gym every day, working to at least maintain, and hopefully build, muscle. I love making gains and feeling strong. I get excited when my muscles appear larger and more defined than yesterday.
I’m not worried about getting “too big” because I don’t even know what that means.
I’m going to get spray-tanned to show off my musculature. I’m going to wear jewelry, makeup, and rock some high heels. I’m even going to wear a kick-ass bikini because that’s what figure competitors do.
I’m going to compete to win, just like any sport.
This is me. I am a female bodybuilder.
