Heather's toned and worked her body to a new level of excellence and hottiness as the pictures below will show. She's not yet updated her blog to report on this news, however. She does report "Im swamped and little for time. So much going on! And, maintanence on myself is draining me!!! Went to Loveland to do a Gold's grand opening today though.
I was really drained but glad we went. What an awesome gym! I would love to use it. I now have a life time membership there but Its over an hour away. Seriously bummed. The owners are amazing.

Do you remember the "Fembot" from "Austin Powers: The Spy Who Shagged Me"? Well, in the same photo shoot where female bodybuilder Kristy Hawkins was a "Warrior", she also dressed as a FemBot. That's her to the left.
Anyone who says women bodybuilders can't be beautiful is blind. How about this video below, where Krisy's in a -- I guess -- rain forest of some kind:

For most of my very existence, R. Crumb has expressed what an attractive woman should look like to me. As somone said in the great documentary "R. Crumb" he drew women "You couldn't push around."
All of the women he drew -- and liked -- were and are strong in frame and of mind. And there's the common characteristic of muscular, thick, powerful legs and calves and a wholesome body. Not at all skinny, but also never close to fat. R. Crumb's work and popular expression of female form is a direct and attractive alternative to the "Barbie Doll" look prized by modeling agencies.
Thank God for Dove's recent "curves" ad campaign. I'm sure R. Crumb approves of it. The Dove campaign shows that women who are "thick" and have muscle are as desirable, if not more so. So this I post for the record: I'm an R. Crumb kind of guy. Moreover, I'm not alone. I don't quite understand who desided that skinny was the preferred way, but I'm going to investigate that, soon.
Meanwhile, check out the Campaign For Real Beauty" website and learn why real women have curves.
Meanwhile, Kate On Sports has a great video blog called Women and Muscle that captures and focuses ons society's new interest in the "R. Crumb woman."

Nuriye Evans is a Connecticut born, Florida-based bodybuilder who's known for a rather interestingly racy website at www.naughtynuriye.com
Alina Popa's another popular female bodybuilder on the Web. At her website she reports...
First of all I want to wish you all Merry Christmas and a Happy Prosperous New Year. For me 2006 was a very successfull year, full of both proffesional and personal satisfaction. I got to meet so many new and interesting people, I travelled a lot, I had lots of good experiences and many new things to see and learn. I had one competition only, but I was the winner; that competition might not look so important, but to me it was meaningfull because I realized I achieved a new level in my shape.
So, at the end of this year, when I draw a line and sum up, I could say it was the best year I had so far, with the most numerous improvements and the one that brought the most significant changes. Also, it brought next to me some very special people that I love with all my heart. I want to thank them all for being who they are and for constantly supporting me in the most genuine way possible."
We hope she has more success in 2007
Heather Policky will be in the 2007 Arnold Classic. Enough said!
She's one the major competitors in the Ms. International Female Bodybuilding part of the meet.
2007 Ms. International Female Bodybuilding Competitors
Monica Starr as captured by GeneX Hwang. This is what Monica says about herself from her website
Monica Starr is a true country girl, born and raised in Kansas growing up farming corn, wheat, milo, and sunflowers working on her family owned and operated feedlot. Monica loves hunting, fishing, and riding horses. Monica had a passion for horses and hardly a day went by that she didn't go riding. The competition bug bit her at the young age of 10, and it led her to showing and barrel racing horses.
Growing up, Monica was a tomboy at heart, and it showed. You would never find her inside playing dolls or playing house. Monica liked to be outdoors getting down and dirty. Even today, you will find her outside most of the time. She still loves to hunt, fish, ride horses, and you may even find her racing cars from time to time. Monica loves to frequent the race track. She loves to show support to her favorite Stock Car driver, #25KO.
Monica competed in sports such as track and volleyball in highschool. She even went on to coach Jr High track at a small school in Kansas. Now that is one tough chic with true beauty, strong will, and good heart. Monica is very energetic and outgoing and it shows just hearing her voice. But, our cowgirl left the farm for the big city. After going to college at Fort Hays University and Colby College, she realized that she wanted more in life, so she got certified to become a personal trainer and moved to Baltimore, Maryland.
While working the fitness rounds, another sort of competition bug bit her. She soon discovered the new NPC Figure division. Meet Monica Starr Cowgirl gone City. Monica competed in NPC Figure for four years, and got into fitness modeling. It's been a whirlwind ever since! However, Monica missed the small town life and headed back to the Land of OZ. Did she use her ruby red slippers? We may never know, but she went back to her home town to be closer to family and lead a quieter life.
Today, Monica is still personal training and doing fitness modeling. When she is not being made up for the camera, she is working on her family owned farm and ranch with her Dad, brothers, and Grandpa. They have a feedlot with close to 1,500 head of cattle in it, and they farm close to 5,500 acres of land. Monica stays pretty busy with that, but still manages to find time to model for magazines such as Muscle Mag, American Curves, and Planet Muscle. Monica likes the small town life. She travels a lot with shoots so she still gets to see big cities. This City/Country girl gets the best of both worlds.

This totally smoking hot photo is of none other than Seattle's Lora Ottenad, who took the Miami NPC's by storm. I'm guessing Puma's not a sponsor but after seeing this, they should call her!
Hans, who contributes to GeneX Magazine, snapped this candid photo of Cindy Phillps at a party held at The Orchid Garden, South Beach, November 2006 and just after the Miami NPC's. It seems Ms. Phillips loves a good cigar. Well, I really don't know what kind of cig that is!

Ok, I saw this on Flickr and had to post it. In an era where women are more confortable with being strong, here's the perfect example of how some don't mind showing off! This reminds me of the Kate On Sports episode on Women and Muscle.
Gene X took this photo of Jennifer Myers last year. I found some interesting information about her which reads that she works on a railroad..."Jennifer Myers, the sole woman in the group, is a 34-year-old bodybuilder who trained mentally disabled workers in Ohio. She said her mother worries about the dangers of railroad work."
This is a black and white photo of Janeen Hammer. For whatever reason, I can't find any information on her. If someone has something please chime in!

Melissa Pearo's a fresh face on the women's bodybuilding scene. As her website says "I made my debut as a figure competitor in August 2006 at the Europa Super Show. I had an amazing first year. Four competitions within ten weeks and 3 overall wins!
I'd like to thank all those who helped me. I couldn't have done it without you!"
We look for more from this new hot body in 2007.
