Or is it just me?

Has anyone else noticed that the women competing in the Arnold Classic bodybuilding division this year are....smaller? I'm sure that Yaxeni used to be MUCH bigger than this:
Yaxeni took out the 2008 Ms International title, by the way.

The photos of some of the other competitors that I've seen show similar changes. So has the judging criteria changed, and they've all aimed for a smaller physique, or is it just that I see them differently now? I do remember that only a few short years ago I used to think the figure girls were way too muscular..... how our views can change!

Aww, Jen only came 2nd. At least I'll get to see you and her in less than 2 weeks! I'm really looking forward to it.

Oh, and I meant to say, yes, I think they have shrunk!

I'm afraid I see nothing attractive in that physique. All I see is way too many steroids and an ugly fake tan.

Now the girls that were in last years Oxygen calendar are gorgeous. I've always liked that athletic look so I don't think my perceptions have changed much at all.

Sorry I have to agree with Deb and say I don't find that attractive either. I love the athletic looking girls from Oxygen and running magazines too...
