5 Step Plan to Save Women's Bodybuilding

Here are our five steps to help save the sport. The main point if female bodybuilders can't inspire others to take up the sport it will wither, that said. Every bodybuilder needs to recruit more bodybuilders.

 1) Test Testosterone Levels - Forget testing for specific drugs, that's much too expensive. Test testosterone levels. Judging by the winners some of the pro competitions (2013 Tampa pro show for example), weeding out some of the less feminine can only enhance the sport's image. Thee middle of the pack on had some great examples of women who could inspire new blood into the sport. Instead, they're just harsh and wonder if they should be in the sport at all.

 2) Separate Governing Body than men - NPC and IFBB has done a great job growing the men's side of the sport, but the sport has to be run differently for women. A freakshow somehow has a different ring to men than women.

 ) Kickstarter - Lets see what support is out there. It is a sport of obviously dedicated and motivated women. Can the funds be raised creatively to get the sport running in the right direction. There are ways to do this that don't rely so much on the NPC and IFBB

 4) Charity Tie-ins - 5ks became 10Ks became spartan and mud runs. Female bodybuilding events can get no better PR than having women, lifting and dieting for a cure. It's already a sport of women who have beaten the odds and transformed themselves into better people. Keep that going with more events that get women involved on and off the stage..

 5) Sexy Yes, Sex no - Another hit to its image are the sleezy ways women are earning money in the industry. If a competitor is doing webcam, sessions or things of that nature they can not compete in any new Federation. Not to say they can't do it, because obviously they'll be a market but those representing the sport should not.

 What are your thoughts? Can it be saved? Are we off base. Would this work in America. Is the future in Europe and South America? Steal or share on facebook. Just need to get a dialogue going forward.

The best thing is that Shannon is inspiring lots of her followers to train harder.  This is what will keep the sport alive, not creepy webcams and session work.
