Muscle-Building Workout and Diet


Hi guys, «Nature of Bodybuilding channel»
with you today and in this video I want to talk to you about all of the winners of Ms
Olympia contest. The first Ms Olympia contest was held in 1980
and unlike the first male bodybuilding show in 1965, there were 20 female contestants. The first one among all of them was the American
female bodybuilder Rachel McLish. I wouldn’t call her a bodybuilder as appearing
at the first Ms Olympia contest she looked like a model not a commonplace female bodybuilder. She was 165 cm or 5’5’’ tall with weight
of 58 kg or 127 lb in her prime. I think that she was just a lean girl with
a beautiful figure. Anyway, the winning of the show brought her
a lot of fame but despite that she continued doing it for the following 4 years. For example, in 1982 she was the first again
making her two times Ms. Olympia winner. Let’s watch her performance till the end. Well, guys that was Rachel’s performance. However, in 1981, she came the 2nd after a
female bodybuilder from Finland Kike Elomaa. Like Rachel, she wasn’t that big and would
look like a bikini competitor now. Let’s have a look at her. The 1983 Ms Olympia winner was Carla Dunlap
and it was her greatest achievement in her bodybuilding career. By the way, she came the 2nd after Rachel
McLish in 1982 and continued participating up until 1993 but her placing just got worse. Anyway, her fist placing in 1983 was significant
because black women were not given as much recognition for athletic accomplishments. Besides that achievement, Carla’s physique
produced another model. It was a body a bit bigger than other competitors. While being a little larger, she managed to
present symmetry that the judges were looking for. This could be considered the stage in which
women started to push the size barrier. So, now let’s turn to 1984. It was the beginning of Cori Everson’s rein,
so to speak. She was only 25 when she won her first title. And as a result, she won Ms Olympia title
for 6 consecutive years from 1984 to 1989. By looking at her, I think she looked more
like current women’s physique participants, more aesthetic I think. And she wasn’t that big either. For instance, with the height of 172 cm or
5’ 8’’, she was only 66 kg or 145 lb. If the judges had continued being in favor
of this kind of physique, I think there wouldn’t have needed to cancel Ms Olympia bodybuilding
category in 2014. As I mentioned in my previous video, up until
a certain threshold having some lines, visible muscles gained by means of working out is
great for women, but then their beauty begins to slip. As for Cory Everson, not only is she famous
for being a female bodybuilder but she is also known for being an actress. For example, she played a negative character
called Kara in the 1991 action movie Double Impact with Jean-Claude Van Damme. When I was a little boy, not only was I impressed
by Van Damme’s physique and ability to move but Cory’s physique was also captivating. Needles to say, our next female Ms Olympia
winners were much more muscular. For example, Lenda Murrey was Ms Olympia winner
for 8 times from 1990 to 1995 and in 2002 and 2003 she was also the first. Despite being more muscular than her predecessors,
she brought a lot of interests to female bodybuilding by her captivating performances. Referring to even Dorian Yate’s words, she
took the competition to the next level and lots of women were inspired to do bodybuilding
because of her. So, she was like a female version of Arnold,
so to speak. Well just look at this V-taper, Christmas
tree, shredded physique. I think it’s really impressive for a femal
bodybuilder. Even our next winner of Ms Olympia from 1996
to 1999, Kim Chizevsky, considered her to be her idol. In turn, talking about Kim, I think that she
was a real female giant. In her prime standing at a height of 173 cm
or 5’ 8’’, her weight was 72 kg or 159 lb which was really a lot taking into account
that she was extremely shredded in her prime. By the way, maybe you’ve already noticed
the tendency that in 1990s both female and male bodybuilders started to look extremely
muscular. Even now, almost nothing has changed since
then. Referring to Dorian Yates’s words, growth
hormone was brought out to bodybuilding at that time. Needless to say, female bodybuilders probably
began experimenting with it as well. But this is my opinion. In 2000, Andrulla Blanchette from England
was the first in the category of 135 lb or 61 kg. Let’s have a look at her insanely high quality
of muscles and muscle mass at the same time. Just unbelievable. Look at that! 2001 title was taken by Juliet Bergman from
Netherlands. The most interesting fact that she managed
to do it at the age of 43 and she repeated the winning in 2002 and 2003 but only in the
category of up to 135 lb or 61 kg. She had a really interesting competing career
as she started competing in 1985 and changed her physique from an aesthetic one (I think
she was like a reminisce of Cory Everson) to a really muscular. For instance, here you can see her in the
1980s when she looked really ecstatic. She started her career at that time. Now let’s observe her performance when she
managed to win the title. Off course, she was more muscular, shredded
and you can also probably notice her change in face. Finally, the era of the most successful bodybuilder of all times,
Iris Kyle started. But before talking about Iris, I want to show
you the winner who actually managed to take the title from Iris in 2005 and it was Yaxeni
Oriquen, a Venezuelan-American professional female bodybuilder. And in this Yaxeni is standing in the middle,
between Iris Kyle and Dayana Cadeau, showing her muscles to the crowed. As for Iris, she won her first title in 2004
and never lost it apart from 2005. Just imagine Iris Kyle had ten overall Ms.
Olympia wins. In her prime standing at a height of 170 cm
or 5’ 7’’ her competing weight was 72 kg or 159 lb. In 2014 Ms. Olympia contest was held for the
last time making Iris Kyle the last female bodybuilder winning Ms Olympia contest and
with 10 overalls making her the most successful bodybuilder of all time. Anyway, despite really tough competition in
Ms Olympia contest as all of the participants were really muscular, well prepared sometimes
they even had to have silicon breasts, female bodybuilding Ms Olympia contest was canceled
in 2014 and later replaced by less massive women’s physique category. There were lots of reasons for that, off course. First of all, in comparison to Mr Olympia
contest, it wasn’t so popular. Also, female bodybuilding is a really controversial
sport. It isn’t natural for women to have huge
and shredded muscles. For instance, look at Iris Kyle, she looks
like a woman without skin. So, low body fat doesn’t seem natural especially
for women. Therefore, by looking at them it is even more
certain that they are taking drugs to achieve the conditioning and they generally tend to
lose their feminine look when they are in their prime. So in turn it has nothing to do with health
lifestyle and health. On the other hand all of these factors make
female bodybuilding really interesting and it is really fascinating to see what women
can actually achieve through dedication and constant training. And I have prepared this video for you to
see the step by step evolution of female bodybuilding, which I think now, is the topic that deserves
a lot of attention. Well, guys. Thank you for watching. Please give this video a thumb’s up if you
like it and subscribe to my channel. Good Luck.

100 thoughts on “The Evolution of Female Bodybuilding

  1. Female BB should be brought back to the O. Discounting them because you say it isn’t natural for a woman to look that way is BS. It’s not natural for any man to look as the men do as well.

  2. I find FBB very attractive, it’s all personal opinion. Some women do not like male BB and consider them gross. Also, I think the open discussion of steroids in BB male or female needs to be addressed. It’s in all pro sports period. It’s ridiculous to simply dismiss it. Do you think we can ever get FBB back in the Olympia?

  3. This was a fascinating look at female bodybuilding, I recall looking at Rachel as a very young girl an being in awe, Tonya Knight arrived and I was blown away at the size women could achieved. Now days, I get a little frightened lol. Thank you for sharing.

  4. Oh, My God!! 😨😨😨😲😲😲🤯🤯🤯 Wow!! Good!! 🤩🤩🤩😍😍😍💪💪💪💗💗💗💝💝💝💖💖💖🔥🔥🔥👍👍👍💋💋💋😁😁😁

  5. It's a shame the IFBB is still dictating bodybuilding women how to look i.e. shaving mass that they worked hard on and getting implants via ''sponsors''… it's blatant sexism and has nothing to do with the true definition of the sport.

  6. I think they should bring back female bodybuilding, but cut back in weight in the guidelines and go back to a more natural look. Maybe that would attract more audience as well. It seems to be a problem that very muscular female bodybuilders seem unattractive to the audience.

  7. The first generation of Ms. Olympia were natural. After that, definitely using steroids. Women are never going to be built like men without drugs. It's bad enough that we have the mass monster men of today and to a degree it's accepted. But women mass monsters? I guess if it's what they truly desire let them have it. But I prefer that we don't promote it.

  8. Ciigniiificuuunt;-) lol…. Sorry Im Old School I just hade to. Again sorry but Im Laughing my ass off…. Dont get me wrong love your vidz..Gave u a like

  9. Don’t forget Cory Everson was also on a couple of episodes of the Hercules tv show. She played a hot warrior/blacksmith running around in a skimpy leather outfit…that’s all that needs to be said 😍!

  10. The 1991 seems to be the first actual bodybuilder and has a beautiful face a little bit too muscly but beautiful

  11. Lenda was the start of the down fall of women bodybuilding, too big, too masculine, women aren't suppose to look like men, Cory was my fav she was gorgeous and possible without steroids

  12. Here’s is the truth: ready? They’re FToM transsexuals- deformed males and FtoM who all take synthetic male hormone and lie about it. Those who play make-believe about it are mentally ill. Sorry to be the truth giver now deal with it.

  13. nice video, i would like to have know more about HOW female bodybuilding evolved what chaged,or improved, from the 80's to the 10's

  14. The 60s girls were much better looking, they looked like fit WOMEN rather than like male teenage body builders.

  15. Yeah, girls over 70 kg muscle they start took little dudes. Especially if they have less than 15 percent body fat.

  16. At 1:45, the video mention the least heavy winner 54 kg or 177 lb ?? It think 120 lb is believable. Just saying bro.

  17. I always thought women bodybuilders got it wrong with the symmetry and proportions part of the job. Of course people will dislike female bodybuilding when women try to emulate the male anatomy. For me the perfect female bodybuilder would have super muscular Tom Platz size monster legs and overdeveloped glutes. Incredible thin waists and weak upper bodys specially the chest area. Also for some reason rather than a biceps an overdeveloped female forearm looks so much better and aesthetically pleasing.
    Iris Kyle was just too good for the IFBB. Wish she would just run her own show like Arnold did, obviously that would harm her bf so here's me hoping they can pull it off in the future

  18. I hope a transgendered gear user can compete soon. They will basically look like Jay Cutler with a wig.

  19. Cori’s physique was incredible, but that was the most cringeworthy routine I’ve ever seen. Dial it down a little, christ.

  20. After Cory Everson , the steroids took over. They became half male as they were injecting so much Testesterone it destroyed their facial features.

  21. Это было красиво в 80-90 .после этого периода пошли гермафродиты с красными жопами.капитализм бля.

  22. I remember when women's bodybuilding was actually on TV on network sport shows. It was very popular. And then the steroids crept in and both men and women bodybuilding started losing ratings — the general public doesn't want to look like a mass monster.

  23. from sexy women to transgender man and wonder why this industry died people want to look at sexy lean and fit women not other man…

  24. People always call Ronnie coleman the greatest BB of all time, but i beg to differ , had they not cancelled the womens Ol,ympia Iris Kyle would still be champ right now. No woman can touch her when it comes to putting on quality muscle

  25. "it was cancelled because they took drugs"
    If this was ever a reson Mr.Olypia has been stopped after 1969

  26. They should eliminate abuse of Steroids altogether to make it a level playing field and for the overall wellness of the bodybuilders

  27. Something that was lost over the years was quality posing. The ladies today really don’t have the same flair & style regardless of the added muscle

  28. Corey looked huge and hard. tf u mean? lost all femininity there. Mclish is as far as women should ever go.

  29. All women were hurt by the sexist removal of bb from the Olympia and Ms. International. We should have the same financial and public recognition that male bodybuilders get and not be forced back into a 1970s framework by misogynistic thinkers.
