FEMALE bodybuilders are stealing the headlines in the sport that has always been a male-dominated hobby.
Celebrity competitors Jodie Marsh and model Emma B, with their bulging triceps and washboard stomachs, have inspired women from all walks of life to take up weight training.
It’s a look that has brought mixed reactions ‘ Emma B revealed she ‘cried for hours’ after members of the public slated her ripped physique saying she looked ‘old’ and ‘like a drag queen’.
But Jodie has no reservations. She says: ‘I’m addicted to it.
‘Once you have been at your physical best, it’s hard not to be.’
