Can female bodybuilders get too muscular to win? The insane muscularity of Patty Corbett vs the perfect package of Shannon Courtney

What are female bodybuilding judges looking for? How long is a piece of string? Why doesn't the glue stick to the inside of the bottle?

These are just three of life's imponderables which it rarely does anyone any good to ponder too hard.

But, gluttons for punishment as we are, here at realfemalebodybuilding.com we couldn't help but notice this fantastic demonstration of just how difficult it can be not just to compete as female bodybuilder but also to judge a female bodybuilding competiton.

We were watching the 2012 NPC Contra Costa Championships in California.

The show was eventually won by a fabulous-looking Shannon Courtney, but right behind her was a harder, more chiselled, and let's be honest more 'freaky' Patty Corbett.

First off, let's not take anything away from Shannon – her legs were the most eye-popping sight on stage. Her dramatic quad sweep is just vast, and when she turns and flexes her hammies she presents a magnificent set of wheels a lot of the male bodybuilders would be proud of.

She also looked in perfect show condition, perfect tan, beautiful balance and that 1000 megawatt smile which never fails to win over the crowd.

But right next to her was a positive mountain of deeply striated, huge and hard female muscle in the form of Patty Corbett.

She seems to double in size when she hits that immensely powerful double biceps pose which, frankly. blew every other competitor off the stage. Her abs too were the most granite-hard, chiselled six-pack on stage.

Indeed, a purist might argue that Patty was the truest bodybuilder up there.

But again maybe all that iron-hard muscle was too much for the judges – and we know (or at least we are repeatedly told...) it is way too much for the general public!

In the final analysis the judges are human – and, just to repeat, this takes absolutely nothing away from the winner Shannon who has built one of the very best female physiques in the world.

But let us know your thoughts below and look out for our interview with Shannon very soon!
