Girls that were going to be great but QUIT!

The girls who roid up like crazy in a very unhealthy way, especially at a young age, usually always quit, primarily because of two reasons. They get severe side effects, half of which we don't even see and secondly, the split with their boyfriend who they met at the gym and gave her whatever cycle he was running because he likely has no knowledge of it, especially not in women.

Veronica Valentyne is one of my faves on here. Although not big, and obviously all natural, she has beautiful muscle structure, works out to build her muscles up considerably from their natural state, and then gets unbelievably lean. Although with a relatively small, thin frame, she shows surprising mass, especially in her abs, and simply amazing definition and shape. She has decided she has had enough at this point because age makes it much harder to produce the great videos and photos she has done in the past.

I remember Gina Bonfigli for sure. The girl was a beast.

And most young FBB quit for the same reasons men do. Careers take off and you don't have time. Plus it is such a strict lifestyle therefore it's easy to burn out. I freely admit I had no problem spending 2-3 hours in a gym during my teens and twenties, there is no way I could do that now even if I had the time and didn't tired easier. I can handle 60-90 minutes a day at most. After that I get bored.

Oh, I was always a fan of Amy Bates/Blondechic/Georgia Luv. She has just the right amount of musculature in the above pic. However, for those of you like them bigger, she was pretty huge in this pic.

My first post on this site! Hoping to learn more about female bodybuilding history.

Totally forgot about Amy Bates. She did have an amazing look.

Also agree with others that Dani Reardon and Jess Martin would be near the top of my list. Lil Monsta should have won the Olympia in 2016 if the judges would not have been so obsessed with Malacarne.

Is Brittany Lanae Bull still around?

And I guess I need to add Katie Lee to this list. Probably the best upper body and overall aesthetic out there for awhile. I personally didn't mind that her legs never seemed to match up.

April Rincones and i have it on good authority as to why she disappeared

She looks familiar. Was she featured heavily on BettysBiceps?

Wow! I completely forgot about her. Why did she quit?

And last one for now. Ginger Martin was crushing it in the early 2010s, and now she’s disappeared. I wonder whatever happened to her?

Ginger got remarried and from last I heard is very happy enjoying life. Incredibly Ginger before she retired was still as you said crushing despite the fact she is a grandmother!

Katie Lee is still VERY much active though...

Katie is still lifting, but my suspicion is that most of the muscular images of her on social media recently are older pics, as she is focusing on MMA now.

I just think she’s done with BB. Stopped some of the drugs if not all of them, has lost a fair amount of size from bodybuilder size and is focusing on MMA. If it’s a long long term thing and she doesn’t return to Bb at all she may never have that particular look again

Sad day indeed if Katie Lee has given up bodybuilding for good.

What about An Da Jeong? Almost no woman has reached the development she had, but now she seems to alternate between posting ancient pics she may have never posted and actually posting her current look. You don't go from this https://www.instagram.com/p/CM_UgBQnS1N/ to this https://www.instagram.com/p/CNNNB_Zn2KO/ in like 4 days.

And what about Tessa Barresi? Went from having 14" biceps at like 16 to having the build of a child with normal, adult buttocks. And she thinks she's fit.

Anyone remember Gina Bonfiglio? She burst on the scene in the mid 2000’s. She did shoots with BoomerFlex (specifically Collegeflex,) had her own site, and I believe was feature on Diana the Valkyrie. Then she literally disappeared.

Yes, I still have some of her pictures. She was very, very young, then went to college and disappeared about then.

Tessa Barresi has said she wants to have a life besides bodybuilding. If you were a 19 year old college girl, wouldn't you?

That would explain her lack of youtube updates as of late. Now THAT would be a sad one to see quit for good. She was achieving a new plane of perfection. :(

Totally. She was Perfect.

Tessa got that early "get big" bug. She mentioned it in one of her videos a while back where her goal was to have the biggest arms in the gym, and she kind of achieved that. IIRC there were some personal issues along the way that may have affected her decision, along with the fact that when she was at her largest she was prevented from competing because of her age (I think?). She moved to Bikini and probably liked the training and diet and mindset better. There have been a lot of girls that were like "figure or bust" but as figure has gotten bigger they drop it.

I TOTALLY forgot about Victoria--I saw her in an old photo dump and she was something else. Could've been an Olympia winner between then and now. Another one that had big popularity before social media was so widespread.

Yes. Seems like most of the pics of her from her younger years have disappeared from the web.😕

Definitely been off the juice for a while now.

10 or 15 years ago there was a black girl named "majic stick" who had huge quads and biceps for a 16 year old girl. She was all the rage for a year or two. Then she went off to college and went off the map. Gossip was she was more interested in the college social scene than lifting weights.

I can't seem to find her pics anymore on the internet. Shame.

Dorinda Pribila had a lot of promise about 20 years ago but then disappeared off the web.

Interesting how many girls quit. I get all the reasons why, but it makes you wonder if they really loved it or if it was something just to feed their ego or a certain time period of their life. People that love things will always do them and maybe not at a certain level, but you just see so many burn out and go back to normal

I've always suspected it might be a reaction to some sort of negative input from someone important to them. Plus a kind of defense.
