List of people from Louisiana
She poses in several swimsuits and dresses and is interviewed, and this entire tape is now included on her WPW compilation DVD.

Prosecutors demand 'killer dad' Chris Watts provide DNA and fingerprints in triple murder case after he We met Crystal, Tania and Chris at the Junior Nationals, where we did all of this work with them. No gymwork as we did the work with her at contests. At the time, the AAA was the top amateur arm-wrestling contest of the year we think the Petaluma contests were for pros.

We did have one 'real' video session with her in she was supposed to do the Nationals the one that Cory won , but due to some technical mistake regarding her qualification, she was not able to compete. That did not stop us from taping her as she was in outstanding shape, and that footage is on WPW Teagan dropped out of competition at that time, but continued to write articles for various bodybuilding magazines for many years.

Karen Meade was similar to Teagan in size only- a very large and strong 'girl' of She competed in California for a few years and this was our only session with her. She poses in a bikini and leotard, a dress and lifts in the gym. Running time about 40 minutes. This Super 8 film work with Diana was taken around when she was still an 'up and coming' star in southern California. She poses in many bikinis and dresses and footage is dubbed with light classical music.

Starting in , when we purchased our first video equipment, we began taping Diana on a regular basis as she became one of the top IFBB pros ever. Competitive women's bodybuilding was just coming into its own in , though very few of the women were in the New York City area.

In order to get more material to release for films, we ran a few ads in 'Backstage' and received responses mainly from dancing and ballet professionals. They were filmed using Super 8 film no sound, so music is dubbed and the picture quality varies and there are some bad edits, but overall a very interesting and viewable video.

Most of the dancers had only one developed bodypart calves , though a few, like Cornelia and Michelle DeMetz had very good upper bodies, so we filmed them accordingly in bikinis and dresses. By the time was over, the bodybuilding competitions grew like crazy and the need for 'dancer' film sessions was no longer needed. Running time 1 hour. We taped many of the top women during the sport's earliest days of , using Super 8 film. The picture quality is very viewable and features 15 women posing in bikinis, one-pieces and dresses, with occasional gymwork.

Running time is 2 hours. WPW-8 Stars of Super 8 transfer. Fourteen of the top women from are featured here, including: All women pose in bikinis and dresses, and light classical music is dubbed over the posing scenes. Picture quality pretty good for Super 8 transfer! WPW-9 Stars of Super 8 transfer. Twelve of the top women from are featured here, including: All women pose in bikinis and dresses, and the picture quality is pretty good for Super 8 transfer.

Classical music dubbed over all the posing scenes. Running time is about 2 hours. These five women were among the last who we taped using silent Super 8 film- we started using 'real' video in late Despite having to go from film to video to DVD, the picture quality is actually pretty good, though all footage has classical music dubbed. All five women posed in a series of swimsuits and dresses, and there is gymwork for all but Lisser. We never had follow up sessions with the other three.

Joan was in 'off-season' shape before it was fashionable, and shows off great size and shapes, particularly considering the era and that she was only in her very early 20's. The other four women were in ripped contest shape and were top national stars at the time: Leslie was from New Jersey and was famous for her huge arms; Sue Ann arrived on the scene in and quickly threatened Kay Baxter with the 'most muscular' title; Alison Brundage was from Hawaii, competed for a short while, then retired, but also showed a lot of size, definition and vascularity for the era; and Lisser was the Sweden champ and had already turned pro.

Running time about 80 minutes. We located a copy of this video and are now able to offer footage of this historical competitor for the first time on DVD. Laura Combes and Lisa Elliott were still the point of comparison for muscularity then, but Pillow and Kay Baxter equaled, then surpassed them during Pillow's competitive career was brief, but she remained a fan favorite for several years before returning to the dance stage again.

She poses in many bikinis, one-pieces and dresses, and was always in contest or near contest shape. Since silent film was used as the master, classical music is dubbed throughout. And, considering we had to go from Super 8 master, to copy, to video, then to DVD, the picture quality is pretty good. Running time is about 45 minutes. Georgia was one of the sport's true pioneers, and many would include her, Kay Baxter and Lisa Lyon as the first stars, each competing as early as We had several Super 8 film sessions with Georgia from to , posing in many swimsuits and dresses, and all of this footage is now on WPW We finally got a video copy of this, and the transfer to DVD is actually very good quality.

Cammie was for sure one of the sport's pioneers- she competed in a few contests in , when she was barely 20, and was able to turn pro right away. She did only one pro show- the first Ms. Olympia in then retired from competitive bodybuilding to concentrate on her 'odd lifts' career. We had two Super 8 sessions with her in , then one in , and the footage includes posing in swimsuits and dresses, all dubbed with music.

The gymwork shows Cammie performing her most famous 'odd lift' one arm clean and jerk with pounds and some repwork. Again, the picture quality is quite good considering what the original Super 8 has gone through to get to the DVD! Video running time about 45 minutes. These four women were among the very best during the early days of the sport.

We taped all of them a few times during , and all the footage from the original Super 8 films is included. All women had multiple sessions and pose in swimsuits and dresses, and classical music is dubbed on the posing scenes. Good picture quality for Super 8 transfer! We finally located a video copy of this title and were surprised at the very good quality of this Super 8 to video to DVD transfer.

We were still using Super 8 film in , and the material was originally released on films, then transferred to video in All ten women featured were in contest shape and pose in bikinis and dresses, and light classical music was used to score the silent video. The following women are featured: The intro board for this DVD says 'Stars from ' but we are pretty sure all of the 12 women featured here were filmed in with our Super 8 camera. In any event, the 12 women include Jeanne Splittergerber later known as Jeanne St.

All women pose in swimsuits and dresses and classical music is dubbed over the posing scenes. We had a few Super 8 sessions with Janice in , and all of that is now on WPW , which also includes material taken of her with 'real video' in The Super 8 transfer material is dubbed with classical music during Janice's posing scenes in swimsuits and dresses.

Deanna and Shelley were two of the top women in Canada when we filmed them in Super 8 in Each woman poses in swimsuits and dresses and classical music is dubbed on to the footage.

As a special note, Deanna was only 19 here, making her one of the best teenagers ever. Elaine and Peggy were two of the 'biggest' stars in the northwest during the 's, and we say 'big' as at about 5'9" pounds in contest shape, they were also two of the largest women on the scene.

Candy and Karen were two of the most popular national caliber women on the scene in the mid's- Candy, from Arizona, was noted for her lean and vascular condition, particularly in her upper body. This release featured our Super 8 transfer of Cory taken in , and , and 'real video' of her taken at the time of the Ms. Olympia, where she posed in several bikinis, did some gymwork and was interviewed. This is now on WPW , which also includes all of Cory's footage from our video session with her in This was the first time she hit bodybuilding poses, but took to it right away and posed in several swimsuits and dresses, worked out heavy in the gym and was interviewed.

Video runs about 1 hour. She had just competed in the 'Superbowl' bodybuilding event, and was in terrific contest shape at 5'2" pounds. This entire video, featuring posing in different outfits, gymwork and interview, is now included on WPW , featuring Renee Casella as well.

This was the first contest we ever taped and nearly all of it is actually very good quality. Wally Boyko promoted this, and the 'Strength Expo' contests, and we taped several of them until the time that the Extravaganza Strength Shows were held in New Jersey starting in The lifts include the battery hold, 45 pound plate carry with 'pinch grip', dumbbell carry, beer keg lift, bench press and tug-of-war.

Also, there was a couple's event man and woman pose together. This is a 3 DVD set, running a total of almost 5 hours. The strength show and bodybuilding finals are on two of the DVDs- the third features the bodybuilding prejudging only- the picture quality is good, but there are some 'bad edits' as we didn't really know what we were doing yet.

However, the historical value of including this is very worthwhile. Video runs about 5 hours. Kay, and Georgia Fudge, were the first two bodybuilding stars WPW did work with, shooting Super 8 film of them as early as We did our first 'real video' with her in , and that footage is here- gymwork, posing in many outfits and an interview, and the video quality is pretty good. Though originally released in , this was the last footage WPW taped with Super 8 film in WPW contains Super 8 films produced by another company.

The eight women featured here were all national caliber, in top contest shape. Aside from a few 'light' scenes, the picture quality is actually pretty good for Super 8 transfer, and the women pose in bikinis and dresses, with classical music dubbed on all the posing scenes.

Video runs about 45 minutes. We taped two shows in the first was this USA contest, then also the Nationals. In future years we would tape those two shows along with many Jr. In addition, 'Couples Posing' was a popular event at the time, and there were about 10 Couples routines, including those of Sally Sims, Jeannie Splittgerber, Peggy Bertelson, Janice Graser and Diana Dennis with their respective partners.

The entire prejudging and finals are included on this 2 DVD release and the video quality is very good. WPW started taping the NPC contests in , and taped nearly all their top national contests through The entire pre-judging and finals are included and the picture quality is very good. DVD runs 3 hours. Mishay was a rising star in California in when we had our first video session with her. She did gymwork, posed in many outfits and was interviewed, all in lean, contest shape.

This footage was taken at the time of the 'Expo Strength' contest, which she was in. At 5'3, pounds, she had size and was also in hard condition, showing off her thick physique in several swimsuits and dresses, lifted heavy and some repwork in the gym, and was interviewed.

Her footage runs about an hour, and is followed by Marya, who was one of the tallest competitors ever at 6'1". She competed mainly in California, and for only a short period of time, but we had this one video session with her.

The pounder worked out in the gym, posed in a bikini and was interviewed. For Teagan, we did Super 8 film with her in early and we are still looking for a copy of her WPW-4 Video , and again later in , where she made quite the transition. She was huge but not really cut the first time, but here, she changed from brunette to blonde and was in terrific contest shape. She was planning to do the Nationals, and would have given Cory Everson a real run for it, but due to an organizational snag, she was not able to compete, but guest-posed instead.

Anyway, she hits the shots in a black bikini and white dress, and the film transfer is very good quality. Many 'name' women of the era competed: Dona, Suzanne and MaryAnn were top women during the mid-late s and all were in top contest shape in when this work was done with them. For Dona, we lead of with gymwork and posing in bikini and dress when she was in off season condition, but she and the other two were in great shape for the rest of the work, done at the '85 US Championships.

MaryAnne and Suzanne do tandem gymwork, then all three pose in bikini and dresses, and all three are interviewed together. So, make note of that. In addition, the opening footage for Dona is average quality, but the rest of the tape is very clear quality, even the black and white sequence.

For this event there was a bodybuilding contest, but that was really a side event to the strength contest. The bodybuilding event featured mainly local women, though a few 'name' women traveled to compete- a 19 year old 'Athena', Lindy Champion, Yolanda Hughes and as far as we know, this was the only contest Doughdee Marie was in, lean and with deep abs! The strength event featured 10 women doing 8 lifts.

Running time is 4 hours. Both were in off season shape. Kelly dropped out of the scene soon after this, but Dorothy continued to do well on the national bodybuilding scene, gaining fame as one of more massive women on the scene. We have Dorothy in top contest shape on WPW We have that year's second best amateur contest, the U. Championships on WPW , and here we have the top show of the year, with more than women competing in this bodybuilding event.

Included is the Couple's Contest very popular back then , then introductions for all the competitors, 10 prejudging routines for all four classes, finals routines and awards. The picture quality is decent for the time, but the sound system for the music was way too loud, resulting in horribly distorted music, so we sadly had to dub light synth music over the routine music.

The MC microphone was OK, so you do hear him introduce the women, etc. A terrific, historical contest tape on two DVDs. This video runs about an hour and features Diana in top contest shape at the time of her big victory at the Nationals.

She opens up with gymwork in a leotard, poses in two bikinis and two dresses, and is interviewed. Meanwhile, all of her original full length DVDs are now available. Running time is 1 hour.

Jill was a top competitor in the 'other' bodybuilding organization, the AAU, and she won that overall title at least once in the mid 's. This footage was taken in when she was in near contest shape, featuring great muscle shapes, size and definition for someone still in her early 20's. She did repwork in the gym, posed in several swimsuits and dresses, and was interviewed.

A few of the posing scenes are on WPW , but the original title here is the way to go if you want it all. This was our only session with her, and she dropped from the scene soon after this. This was the second time we did 'real video' with Cory, after doing Super 8 filming in The first real video was done with her at the Ms.

Olympia, and here we have more of her in top contest shape at the time of the Ms. Since the show was held in November, it was too cold to go outside, so footage includes Cory working out and posing in two bikinis in the gym only, and an interview is also included. Please note that all of her previous footage- the Super 8 and video footage, originally released on WPW , is included here. The entire WPW is now included on WPW Clare was one of the top pros in the sport during the mid-late 80's, and this work was done with her at the time of the Ms.

This was the second 'Superbowl' strength contest we taped, and we are still trying to get a video copy of WPW , which featured the contest. The stage lighting at this event was not the best, so the video quality here is only fair, even for the era, and there are some 'dropouts' during the bodybuilding event. But, the 4 hour event is viewable and we are releasing it due to impressive field of women and historical value. The events in the strength contest include the dumbbell carry, leg press, battery hold, bench press, chinups and tug-of-war.

Video runs about 4 hours. We met Rhonda at a national contest in , and she was invited to take part in the 'Superbowl of Strength' contest in early , when this footage was taken. She was invited to that show based on her considerable strength, and she shows that off during her gymwork here, followed by posing in two dresses and her interview. Please note that the dress posing, but not the gymwork nor interview, is on her 'compilation' video, WPW Sandy was in the Superbowl Bodybuilding event, and the beauty from the northwest showed off a lean, defined physique while doing repwork in the gym and posing in her bikini and two dresses.

An interview also included. Note that the posing in one dress and her bikini are also included on WPW , featuring other women as well. Also note that one small dress scene is poor quality due to darkness, but the rest of the video is very good quality.

This was our second release for Doughdee, and first for Raye. We paired them on this release as they had similar style physiques- both were in impressive off-season condition.

But, for those fans who may want the two different women on one tape, and to have all the footage, we offer the original release here as well. After her retirement from the stage, she began running The Emerald Cup contest, which to this day is one of the best regional shows in the country. The picture quality is mostly decent, but there is one scene which is poor quality dark - we did get new equipment within about a year after our early tapings. Video running time about 1 hour.

Juliette started her career as Juliette Meyer and was the top woman in Holland in the early-mid 80's, then became one of the top women in the world during the time of our first video sessions with her here in and , when we had three different sessions with her.

In fact, many considered her to be a real challenge to Cory Everson once they would meet head-to-head in the IFBB pro shows. Well, Juliette never beat Cory, but had an impressive pro career nonetheless, retiring from the stage in the early 90's, only to make one comeback several years ago, around or so. Here, Juliette works out in the gym, poses in several outfits and is interviewed twice. She ranged between being in top contest shape to somewhat off-season.

Some of the posing footage is on her WPW Compilation DVD , but if you want all the posing, gymwork and interviews, Juliette fans would want this original video. As for Juliette, Hannie was able to turn IFBB pro in the latter part of the 80's and had a good stage career in the early 's as well. Leny and Peggy did not stick around long, and although they might have attained pro status by winning top shows in Holland, they did not have an international career.

WPW Magazine editors Steve Wennerstrom and John Nafpliotis made a few trips to Europe around this time, and in taped all three women in top contest shape. America' contest, then switched to the NPC where she had success as well. Cathy was an elite powerlifter who competed in bodybuilding shows on occasion.

Jennifer and Jane were both national caliber physiques in the mid's, but as far as we remember, neither stuck around long enough to make a mark in any national shows. Both women were in strong off-season shape here, with Jane checking in at a lush 5'2" and Jennifer at 5'8" pounds.

Jane, from Arizona, was one of few women at the time known more for her lower body than her upper, including incredible calves. She does a mix of reps and strength moves in the gym and also poses in several outfits. These were our only sessions with them, and the footage, taken in , is very good quality.

Each woman had a different 'look', but both were very impressive and could have done some real damage on the national scene had they continued. This may have been the first contest California promoter Wally Boyko ran, and it was a physique show only. The picture quality is very good and the contest featured some famous names from the early days- both competitors and 'staff'.

Sadly, the videographer must have been changing his tape and Dennis' routine is not shown, though you will see her in the posedown and awards. Lynne Pirie guest poses and the tape ends suddenly after that. Running time 40 minutes. A WPW colleague did a small newsletter in the early 's called Lady Athlete, mostly featuring competitive bodybuilders. They also released some Super 8 films during that time, but never had them transferred on to video.

We are not even sure how many films they did, but we 'bought the rights' to the ones featuring the 12 women here. Classical music was dubbed over all posing scenes. Appearing in order on the video are: The picture quality for these transfers ranges from above average, to pretty good, to very good. Video running time 2 hours. All three were in top contest here- for Tara, there is posing in many outfits, some gymwork and an interview, but please note, all of this footage of her is also on her WPW DVD, which has later material of her as well.

We only had this one session with Tonya, who was still barely in her 20's and had not become a superstar yet she was a top IFBB pro and a Gladiator a few years later , and her footage includes posing in a bikini and three dresses and an interview.

Karen poses in a bikini, one-piece and dress. So, if you do not have WPW or WPW , this is a great look at three of the best and most beautiful competitors of the late 80's.

DVD runs 2 hours. Sherry was a top regional competitor with some success in national shows, and was also very strong for her 'look', competing in one or two of the Extravaganza Strength Contests.

Kathy in guide photos and Peggy were paired here for reasons- both were top competitors for a few years in the mid's, and both were among the largest women of the time- each was about 5'8" pounds.

We had two sessions with each women in and when they were in top shape and then off-season. Gymwork is included for Kathy, both women are interviewed and there is a small bit of their Super 8 footage from a couple years earlier. Both women hit the shots in contest shape and off-season in bikinis, one-pieces and dress items. Please note that our first video equipment was used from or so- the picture quality is good, but not as good as our quality from about onwards.

We had several video sessions with the big Texan Brenda during and nearly all the footage is very good video quality, though there is some camcorder footage of her 'on location'. She was in terrific contest shape for most of the footage, and she was in very decent shape for the off-season session as well. Brenda poses in many outfits for all sessions and there is live gymwork and interview. During the 80's we tried to tape as many women as possible at the contests, and in many cases the videos released then feature posing only, no gymwork or interviews.

Mary, Lisa and Alicia were very good amateurs but did not stick around the scene long. Laura, of course, became a very top IFBB pro soon after. This was a 'superstar update' video as it features six women with whom we had already done work with once before.

And, only Santos was interviewed. So, Santos' footage runs about 35 minutes and the other five women get about 15 minutes each. All six women had brief, successful stage careers, but only Dona took it a step further, competing as an IFBB pro for a while. Again, six top women are featured here- five in very top contest shape and Dona off-season. Video running time about 2 hours. We have the three other contests on DVD as follows: The strength event featured 10 women competing against each other for dumbbell carry, leg press, battery hold, bench press, chins, curls and tug-of-war.

Competing were many 'famous' strength athletes: Due to a quirk in the judging, no matter who did the best up to the tug-of-war, it was that event only which decided the winner, and for some reason the awards were not taped, so we will include the final three with the DVD. In addition, the entire event lasted forever, so most of the dumbbell carry was deleted in order to fit this on a 4 hour video.

The picture quality varies from good to average. For several reasons, we stopped traveling to California to tape these, as Wally was getting more involved in his Ms. Running time 4 hours on two DVDs.

We taped her in ripped contest shape, then somewhat off-season, and all of the footage is now on WPW together with more of her taped in For WPW, though, all of the footage is on her compilation video. Later footage taken in the early 90's is on WPW Rhonda was one of our favorite models during that era as she combined it all- a lean contest ready physique, beautiful looks and hair and was very strong, having competed in several of the strength contests, including an early Superbowl of Strength- one of the best total packages ever.

The footage shows Kay posing in a red bikini and gold dress, and that footage is on her WPW compilation video. Added to this is Jerry and Norm Cohen's camcorder footage of her in when she was in her early 30's, but looks about 20 here! As an added bonus, Cammie Lusko is also shown posing and doing some of her heavy 'odd lifts' in the gym.

Historically, this is interesting footage as it shows a relatively slender bodybuilder just starting out in , then, at the end of her career. Sadly, Kay was killed in an auto accident in Kay Baxter was the 'point of comparison' for a woman bodybuilder in the early 80s, but starting around other women started to pop up challenging Kay for the title of 'most muscular competitor'.

One of them for sure was Sue Ann, who was a martial artist, developing her physique largely through that activity early on. The 'real' video session was done at the time of her appearance in the Ms. Olympia and features gymwork, posing in several outfits and an interview. Her physique showed a lot of size, vascularity and hardness, with unreal arm, chest and back poses in particular for the era, making her the point-of-comparison at this time, but watch out, Renee Casella was making her emergence on the scene!

The Super 8 transfer quality is pretty good and the real video is decent quality, but not perfect. We met Raye and Doughdee around , and they were two of the first women to become noted for getting huge during the off-season. That look was popular so we pursued the off-season look for tapings once the contest season had ended. She was in off-season shape for her second session, as were the other three women. Doughdee poses in two bikinis and many dresses for her two sessions and Raye poses in four outfits.

We did much more work with them after this- well into the 90s. The ex-ballerina showed off a very impressive lower body when posing in four outfits. Connie is back again, this time in huge off-season shape, lifting heavy in the gym, then posing.

No interviews and the video picture quality ranged from fair to very good. Julie was one of the top pioneers of the sport- we did Super 8 film of her on WPW , but she never got the 'real video' treatment that her sister Valerie got in We had two sessions with Valerie- the first at the time of the Nationals when she was in top contest shape, then in early when she was off-season. Footage includes gymwork, posing in many outfits showing off the 'McNew family biceps genes and is interviewed.

This was our final work with her, and she never looked better than she did in in top contest shape throughout topped off by a very attractive blonde highlighted hairstyle. She posed in a green bikini one photo from this scene made the cover years later on the Winter WPW print magazine and black leotard, and was interviewed. Clare was also in the Ms. O and was in fabulous shape, posing in two swimsuits and two dresses- a complete physique including a very densely muscled upper body and a beautiful face.

Clare was living in New Jersey at the time, but soon after left the sport and moved back down south where she grew up. The footage of Dutch star Leny was taken at the time of the 'Superbowl' bodybuilding contest, where she also was in very hard and defined condition, posing in three outfits. I have been powerlifting since and competed in the pound weight class until two years ago, when the I. I have to keep a fairly clean diet in order to keep my weight close to pounds.

I normally walk around at a lean pounds and then have to diet hard and sauna to make the weight class. In order to maintain my strength in this weight class, I found it important to train close to that weight.

You can find examples of athletes that drop pounds the week before a competition then sauna and compete in a very dehydrated state. However, not many of them can maintain the strength they had in their training cycle for the meet. In order to maintain a steady body weight, diet and exercise are obviously of importance. For most of my career, I have tried to keep a diet of 2 grams of carbs to every 1 gram of protein. While maintaining my protein at 1. I keep a running list of what I have consumed throughout the day and total it at night.

As I get closer to a competition, about three to four weeks out, I reduce the ratio to one to one. This very simple type of dieting allows me to still get the carbs I need for energy, but not enough to gain weight. It is also an easy diet to implement. After reading enough nutrition labels, you get a sense of the types of food to eat.

The bench is something that I have been able to improve and maintain at a steady body weight throughout my fifteen years of powerlifting. I believe it is my best lift, mostly because I really love this exercise and work the hardest at it.

However, I have been able to uncover techniques and training that allow me to continue to improve my max lifts. There is a time to work on your one rep max and there is a time to build up your core strength.

Your core strength is your repetition strength. Miss Victoria Crowe, Painter. Mrs Lucienne Day, Textile Designer.
