I loved her FBB days. Saw this one FB and thought I would share it here as my return to LJ. Do you like it? Too much? I'd love to have her body...
So, I suck at creating memes, but still, here's one:
Cut and post the following into your own LJ (but change the pic to the one your like, obviously):
Post your more recent inspiration pic. You know, the one that makes you say, yeah, that's me, that's the me I want to be. The one you put on your desktop, your fridge, your locker...
Here's mine...I don't even know her name, but I think she's Korean. I know, she's not as big as I actually like, but she's a shit-hot Asian girl, and she's beautiful and fit. Abs!
I like seeing female strength spilling over into the regular world, too, not just in bodybuilding. Here are a couple cool pics I've seen recently.
Michele Obama at the correspondents dinner. I think the joke was that she definitely has the right to bear arms, something like that. So cool!
Mel B AKA Scary Spice. Holy cow! She's got her own fitness DVD, even. She's not big, but she's in great shape, and, wow, that is a six-pack!
And how about this one? Elizabeth Shue from her upcoming movie Piranha 3D. I hope I look that good at 45. From Adventures in Babysitting to Adventures to Bodybuilding!
Mindi O'Brien has a back I can seriously get behind, so to speak. ;)
Hehe, everything I see about Pauline Nordin makes me like her more. Here she is in a very silly video showing you how she gets her morning Glutamine. And, wow, that is a
bowl of oatmeal!
[x-posting this to female-muscle, probably.]
Now this is the back I wish I had! Actually, I wish I had everything Pauline has, too. Although I'm glad I'm taller than she is (she's 5'2"). But, yeah, pretty much everything else. She is so. damned. hot. I might need a moment alone after watching these clips! Anyhow, here are a couple clips.
Ok, these aren't really all that good, but I promised myself I'd start uploading some me-pics this week, so, here goes. A few pics of my back. I'm not flexing or anything...this is just me, in a candid shot. I'll probably cross-post these to one or two of the old groups I used to read, if any of them haven't died out already. Groups sure do come and go on here! Anyhow, I'll start taking some more for-real fitness pics this weekend! My goal is to post pics at least once a week from now on.
Edited to add: one more pic that shows that I have a little bit of a taper. you can juuuuust barely see it. ;)
Cao Xin Li, otherwise known as Lili Cao is another Asian bodybuilder I've started to follow a bit. She's from China, but lives in NY now. I found a couple decent videos of her: the first is a little posing, and the next three are very short interviews. In the first interview she introduces herself (in english) in the next one, if I recall, she talks about studying Judo in Russia and beating up pickpockets, and in the last one she talks about how her family didn't approve of her bodybuilding, at first, and then you see her working out a little.
I really love Xin Li, because she's clearly about the size--I find it depressing to see the typical asian competitors who diet down to the point where they have no muscle whatsover. Plus, I think she's really cute! I've never seen a picture of her, even in contest face, where she had the death-diet face that so many women have when they get up on stage--she's been pretty in ever picture I've ever seen of her...Watch Cao Xinli flexing in Sports | View More Free Videos Online at Veoh.comWatch FEMALE BODYBUILDER xin li cao DIYMUSCLE.COM CHINA chinese in Sports | View More Free Videos Online at Veoh.com
Okay, Mi-Hee You is a new bodybuilder for me. She's freaking amazing, as far as i'm concerned. I want arms like hers...big strong forearms. Sexy!
Anyhow, the first video is shot from a bit too far out until about 3 minutes in, when it zooms in on her doing alternating-arm dumbbell curls. The second video isn't as good, but, still, nice.
Tomoko Kanda my favorite Japanese bodybuilder! I always feel a little weird about this kind of video, since it's clearly aimed at schmoes, but, eh, I love her, love looking at her, want to be like her. Does that make me some kind of she-schmoe? ;)
