Female Physique & Bodybuilding

Italian Muscle Femme Claudia Partenza!

Claudia8In this year's New York Pro contest, one competitor who many feel was overlooked was Italy's Claudia Partenza. At 44 years of age, Claudia presented a dense, ripped physique that seemed destined to take up residence in at least the top ten in terms of placing; however, this was not to be and for some crazy reason, Claudia placed 15th!

The very next day I shot a video with Claudia and promised her an interview with RX Muscle.  So, in keeping with my word, here we go.

Torrie Wilson Talks to Rx Muscle!

4284_182321945443_570735443_7021945_1440739_nWrestling fans will already be very familiar with Torrie Wilson since she was one of the top female competitors on the circuit for almost ten years. On the other hand, fans of  reality TV (and I admit to being a total addict!) will no doubt recall her amazing performance on NBC's ‘I'm a Celebrity Get Me Out of Here' where she finished second to actor Lou Diamond Philips in a season finale where viewer's votes dictated the winner.

Women and Steroids: Beyond the Veil: The Drugs!

A few months ago I began my journey through the world of anabolic steroid use amongst female bodybuilders and now it is time to follow it up with a series of articles featuring steroids commonly (and not so commonly) used by female athletes.

I have also enlisted the help of our very own Sister Steel to add her take on each drug at the end of each article. So, having said all that, let us begin with ANAVAR since it is probably the most frequently used drug used by female bodybuilders.

Belinda Benn. . . Turning Back Time!


BelindaBennyBodybuildingcom9In her hit song "If I could turn back time", legendary music icon Cher considered the possibilities of reversing the clock in order to change certain things in her life. In Cher's case this was a nice concept but not something she could realistically achieve. However, for figure competitor and fitness model, Belinda Benn, the concept of turning back time is not just a nice idea; it is part of her daily reality!

At the age of 45 she has just competed in her first figure competition (Miss Gym 2009 Panama) where she placed 2nd overall. She has also been featured in several advertising campaigns and has been interviewed by many fitness orientated magazines. Hard to believe that just a few years ago Belinda was a pretty straight laced executive, successful yes, but hardly a fitness role model.

Bev Francis. . . Pioneer of Power!

bev_francis1In my last ‘Time Capsule' interview I featured an article I did with Bev Francis revolving around the 1987 Ms Olympia. That same year I also did an interview with Bev which covered her time in power lifting and her switch to the sport of bodybuilding. So, without further ado, here is my interview from ‘Strength Athlete' magazine in its entirety...
