This report is an academic critique of a Quantitative research article written by Mark Anthony Peters and Leadelle Phelps (2001) entitled: ‘Body Image dissatisfaction and distortion, steroid use, and sex differences in college age bodybuilders.’ Under the section ‘Steroid use’ it is made fairly clear towards the end of the paragraph that the main aim of this study is to evaluate the effects of gender and steroid use on body image dissatisfaction and distortion among college age bodybuilders. Based on my interpretation and overall understanding of Quantitative research, I will evaluate/critique this article with professionalism and discipline.

Introduction As stated in the abstract above the title of this piece is ‘Body Image dissatisfaction and distortion, steroid use, and sex differences in college age bodybuilders’. The main aim of this research was to ‘evaluate the effects of gender and steroid use on the body image dissatisfaction and distortion among college age bodybuilders’. Furthermore, in order to clarify differentiation between the two genders, two research questions were used. The first one being – What effect do gender (male or female) and steroid consumption status (non-use or use) have on body dissatisfaction and the second question being, what effect do gender (male or female) and steroid consumption status (non-use or use) have on body distortion. Both of the problem statements coincide with the title and seem to be of educational significance
