The side effects associated with steroid abuse are particularly negative for women, resulting in a whole range of various problems and unwanted effects including – but not limited to – deepening of the voice, increased body hair and clitoromegaly , or an abnormal enlargement of the clitoris. So take a look at the following professional female body builders and decide for yourself where you think the boundary between beauty/obsession lies and whether or not these people have left that line so far behind that they begin to lose all traces of their femininity. One note: The portraits are done by photographer Martin Schoeller as part of a series of portraits of female bodybuilders, check out some of his work here .
Oksana Grishina is one of the most beautiful and successful bodybuilders from Russia, currently living in California, USA. She had a passion for gymnastics as she was growing up, and she sacrificed a lot of time and energy to meet her dreams. After achieving a degree in Physical training and sports, she opened a gym and started instructing people on aerobics and fitness. Later she started training and competing. She has bagged five first-place wins and three second-place wins between 2012 and 2014 alone, in fitness events such as the IFBB Olympia, Arnold Classic, FLEX pro and many more.
Unlike the Jay Cutler who is the quarterback for the Chicago Bears, this guy has had nothing but success over the last decade. What kind of success? He’s won four of the last five Mr. Olympia competitions (2006, 2007, 2009, 2010), and in the past he’s won three Arnold Classics (2002-2004). Before his string of Mr. Olympia victories, he placed 2nd behind the previous champion (Ronnie Coleman) four times. After somehow losing the 2008 Mr. Olympia title to Dexter Jackson, Cutler became only the third person to ever regain his Mr. Olympia title (the others being Arnold Schwarzenegger and Franco Columbu), and the only person to regain is from the guy who took it in the first place.
