Lucy White: I’VE ALWAYS BEEN KNOWN FOR MY ARMS AND BACK.

Is women’s bodybuilding as respected as men’s bodybuilding or is it criticized more?

Lucy White: DEPENDS ON WHO YOUR ASKING REALLY. BUT AS A FEMALE, I WOULD SAY NO. IT IS DEFINITELY CRITICIZED BECAUSE JUDGES ARE TIRED OF SEEING FEMALES WITH THAT “HE-SHE” IMAGE. WHEN YOU PICK UP A MUSCLE MAGAZINE, DO YOU SEE IT LOADED WITH FEMALE BODYBUILDERS?....NO. IT’S FULL OF MEN AND BIKINI CHICKS. WHY?? BECAUSE THAT’S WHAT MAKES MONEY!!! I LOVE THE SPORT AND I WILL CONTINUE TO DO IT BECAUSE THERE ARE NOT VERY MANY WOMEN THAT DO, BUT I WILL DO IT WITHOUT CROSSING THAT FINE LINE, STILL KEEPING MY FEMININITY AND SEXY APPEARANCE.

Where do you see yourself in 10 years?

Lucy White: I WOULD LIKE TO WIN MY PRO CARD AND IN 10 YEARS, I WILL JUST BE HITTING MY PRIME. YOU CAN DO NOTHING BUT JUST KEEP GETTING AND LOOKING BETTER AND BETTER!! (MUSCLE MATURITY)
