    Bodybuilding Subculture

    My gf is doing a project about the bodybuilding subculture for her anthropology class. I was hoping yall could help with some bainstorming...

    Anything you think is relavent is welcome


    Stuff like:

    What defines bodybuilding as a culture?

    bodybuilding lingo?

    Rituals, myths?

    what kind of people are into bodybuilding?

    Personal opinions are more than welcome:

    what's your ideal body?
    what drew you to bodybuilding?


    Any help is much appreciated. Could be interesting for everyone as well.
    "The strong rule where they can and the weak suffer what they must."

    "If money is your only hope for independence you will never have it.
    The only real security that a man can have in this world is a reserve
    of knowledge, experience and ability."
    - Henry Ford

    What defines bodybuilding as a culture?
    Something cliche like "becoming an outcast to society for the sake of personal achievement."

    bodybuilding lingo?
    Too many to name. We'll just start with "light weight."

    Rituals, myths?
    Rituals:
    -Training?
    -Eating every 2 to 3 hours.
    -Squatting in the squat rack.
    etc.

    Myths:

    -Protein powders/creatine/NO-XPlode/Cell-Tech/Chicken breasts are a steroid/shrink your dick.
    -You can "tone' muscle.
    -Eating 6 times a day will make you a fatty fat tits.
    -It's spelled 'ColumbO' and not 'ColumbU'.

    what kind of people are into bodybuilding?
    -"Crazy motherf-ckers" by most people's standards, "Dedicated motherf-ckers" to the rest.

    what's your ideal body?
    Probably Mentzer.

    what drew you to bodybuilding?
    Complete awe of the human body's potential.
