Bodybuilding (uncountable)

    • 1974, Charles Gaines & George Butler, Pumping Iron: The Art and Sport of Bodybuilding, page 7.

  2. (archaic) Work done to construct or repair the body of an automobile.
    • 2006Larry Scott (interview), Iron Man 65(5): 258
      "In my day, if you filled out your shirt, people assumed you played football or wrestled. The term bodybuilding had more to do with cars than lifting weights."
