Lisa Lyon - Bodybuilding Beauties

Although Rachel McLish is usually considered the first woman to bring female bodybuilding into the main stream....there is another.
Lisa Lyon was born in Los Angeles, California on September 30th, 1954.
She won the first IFBB Women’s World Pro Bodybuilding Championship in Los Angeles on June 16th, 1979 and immediately quit competing.

That was one year before Rachel won the first Ms. Olympia.
Lisa didn't compete, but she promoted bodybuilding for women on TV talk shows and in print.
She was photographed by some of the most famous photographers of the time and was the subject of Robert Mapplethorpe's 1983 book Lady: Lisa Lyon.

Lisa also published her own book, Lisa Lyon’s Body Magic.
At her peak, Lisa was five foot four, 120 pounds and measured 37-24-35.
She could dead-lift 225 pounds, bench-press 120 pounds, and squat 265 pounds.

Little known fact: Frank Miller based the body design for the Marvel Comics character Elektra on Lisa.
