It happens to the best of us: We see an Instagram picture of someone from high school, nearly naked and looking strong as hell, and pause. Thirty minutes later, we've scrolled months back on their page, engrossed in a world of meal-prep containers, gym workouts, and show days. Bodybuilding competitions are incredibly popular right now, with some 15, women competing in National Physique Committee competitions alone every year.
The hottest female bodybuilders aren't just really pretty women, they are also some of the most fit women in the world. Female bodybuilders spend countless hours working on their figures and it shows. While some do it just for the satisfaction of being fit, others make a living from bodybuilding competitions, product endorsements and modeling.
The year-old mom of four posted a series of photos to Instagram reminiscing about her competitive bodybuilding days, and she looks absolutely ripped. Naturally abs get all the fanfare in a bikini shot, but Teresa made sure her muscular back got its due too. She shared one shot flexing from behind with her very toned back and arms on full display.
IFBB Pro Bikini is a new category in IFBB which stands for the International Federation of BodyBuilders contests, but not all bodybuilding fans are crazy about this new division, saying that bikini contests are better suited for spring break. Some feel that the bikini division was created just to draw more attention to the contest and bring in more money. But these ladies train hard and diet to get into competition shape. So if they work as hard as their bodybuilding counterparts, why not hold them in just as high regard?

Posted April 27, The first thing you notice is the smell of fake tan and that every surface — walls, floors, basins and even toilets — are covered in protective plastic. Backstage at the Cairns Convention Centre, the room is steamy and full of near-naked women in tiny, sparkly bikinis, teetering on impossibly high stilettos. Some women are pumping heavy weights.
