I’m a big fan of the original Pumping Iron and when I learned about Pumping Iron II: The Women, I couldn’t believe I had never heard of it! So I just spent my afternoon watching it on Youtube and I love it (despite the cheesy 80s music)! It’s interesting to see how far the world of women’s bodybuilding has come. Seeing Rachel McLish and Bev Francis (and all the other ladies) in action and behind the scenes back in the 80s is pretty stinkin’ awesome. Lots of beautiful but completely different figures. I’m personally a fan of Lori Bowen’s physique. Gawgeous. But Bev Francis sure is one Powerhouse (get it!? get it?! She opened Bev Francis Powerhouse Gym in NY…).
Anyways, if you’ve got a free hour and a half and if you’re at all curious, please check it out!
I’m officially inspired to start rocking the side ponytail again. 😛
