Carla Cabau

Carla Cabau is a bodybuilder from Italy. She has been lifting weights and competing now for about fifteen years, but she has been athletic her entire life. When she was growing up in Spain, she ran the 5000m hurdles. She was also into swimming and diving competitively. She’s also practiced rock climbing and kickboxing.

Many of the European female bodybuilders have a very different form or aesthetic as compared to those in North America. It’s not really fair to say they are bigger or more muscular because big female bodybuilders exist in both places. It’s probably more accurate to say the European judging criteria places more emphasis on size.
