Body Image Dissatisfaction and Distortion, Steroid Use, and Sex Differences in College Age Bodybuilders.
Peters, Mark Anthony; Phelps, LeAddelle
Psychology in the Schools, v38 n3 p283-89 May 2001
Compares college age bodybuilders by sex and steroid intake on two variables: body image dissatisfaction and body image distortion. Results reveal only a significant effect for gender on body distortion. No steroid-use differences were apparent for either body image dissatisfaction or body image distortion. Analyses indicate that female bodybuilders were split between desiring more muscle bulk versus a thinner frame. (Contains 34 references and 2 tables.) (GCP)
