Women Who Took Bodybuilding To Extremal Level. Most Muscular females in the world

1 Star (20 votes)

Female bodybuilding originally developed as an outgrowth of not only the late nineteenth-century European vaudeville and circus strongwomen acts, Bernarr Macfadden’s turn of the century women’s physique competitions, and the weightlifting of Abbye “Pudgy” Stockton, but also as an outgrowth of the men’s bodybuilding. The contest formats of men’s events during the 1950s to the mid-1970s had often been supplemented with either a women’s beauty contest or bikini show. These shows “had little to do with women’s bodybuilding as we know it today, but they did serve as beginning or, perhaps more properly, as a doormat for the development of future bodybuilding shows.”[2][3] Physique contests for women date back to at least the 1960s with contests like Miss Physique, Miss Body Beautiful U.S.A., W.B.B.G. and Miss Americana, I.F.B.B.. Maria Elena Alberici, as listed in the Almanac of Women’s Bodybuilding, won two national titles in one year: Miss Body Beautiful U.S.A. in 1972, promoted by Dan Lourie and Miss Americana in 1972, promoted by Joe Weider. Mr. Olympia, Arnold Schwarzenegger was a judge at the Brooklyn Academy of Music in New York when Maria Elena Alberici (aka) Maria Lauren won Miss Americana.
