Pumping Iron- Arnold talks about the pump – 01:19 mm:ss
As much as beauty pageants like Miss Universe seem to be conceived to introduce gender reversed female rolemodels – Mr Olympia and bodybuilding could be its male counterpart. Today we see how openly transgendered female to male individuals operate in numerous documentaries and selfie videos – first they remove their breast, take their Hormones, and then they hit the Gym…
When a naturally born female is transgendered into a man, the most important part of the transition is achieved by HRT. Hormone Replacement Therapy help grow hair, reduce breast tissue and lower the voice pitch. In addition, testosterone is equally the most potent substance for growing muscle we know. This means that secretly transgendered FTM individuals will have an unfair advantage to build muscle – and by association become more of a man. Is the EGI already aware of the effect hormones have, even explored bodybuilding as a technique to better disguise themselves and more convincingly appear like the opposite sex ?
It is already difficult to envision hormone induced beards and facial hair to even exist, so the idea of growing better, bigger muscles with the same substance might be hard. Unfortunately for most men who spend time in the gym and considerable budget on nutrition and vitamins – nothing beats testosterone when it comes to building muscles. A FTM individual is by definition trying to appear as male as possible when they transition. If EGI individuals (FTM) wish to build muscle to sculpt a better, more masculine body they already have the most potent ingredient there is – testosterone at will.
