Hey everyone. A short background on myself- I love lifting and am pretty obsessed with building up my glutes and quads.
Now, I understand that the bikini division is usually won or lost based on the condition/size of the glutes. I also realize that it can be lost if the quads are too big.
Now, I've never personally seen any literal 'rules' for this division, and I know that you never know what to expect, since judges aren't following a 'set' list of rules. Each of them have a bit of a different idea as to what they consider the 'winners physique' to look like, and I think that really sucks. (Please correct me if I'm getting any of this wrong!)
I personally think that big quads (not like, super cut, striated quads) help in attaining more of an 'hourglass' figure, from front as well as the side view.
I've been considering competing in a local show, nothing big. But have there ever been any girls with sorta large quads who have won? I know kaltwasser doesn't, really, and melo got docked a few years back for being 'too bulky,' so. Idk.
Okay so as far as the photos, I drew up a little something to help myself get a better idea of what I would potentially look like if I'm standing next to other women on stage. I tried to make the upper bodies and hips the same, all I did was change the size of the quads (legs).
Going by FIRST glance, which figure did you find more feminine and appealing?
Of course, for me, it's the larger-legged ladies.
Input!? Thanks guys.
