WPW168 - 1990 Steel Rose Strength and Bodybuilding Contest - (168 minutes) - Video Download
We finally got a video copy of this contest and it is now available in MP4 format for the first time. The strength event was patterned after the Extravaganza contests, and features 6 women competing against each other for 6 different lifts- chin ups, dips, leg press, bench press, curls and leg extensions. The women perform reps with a percentage of their bodyweight. The NPC bodybuilding event was a regional quality show. For a regional show, the two events for sure featured some of the sport's most noteworthy athletes- the strength show included top powerlifting/bodybuilding stars Jan Harrell and Sally McNeil. Virginia Brady, who has been competing in bodybuilding events since the early '80s, and still competes going into 2011 as Carmen Brady, was also in the strength show together with her friend, Vicki Sims. The bodybuilding event also featured a couple of famous women- a lesser known Denise Rutkowski, before she became famous a year later, and Shirley Eson, who was the tallest woman bodybuilder ever, at 6'3". In addition, Lisa Lorio guest posed.
