Love ‘em or loathe ‘em, there’s no denying female bodybuilders’ physiques are nothing if not impressive.

Through hard work, meticulous nutrition, bodybuilding supplements and sheer determination, these ladies have sculpted some of the most impressive figures we’ve ever seen.

Female bodybuilding was relatively unheard of until the 1980s, when the likes of Rachel McLish, Bev Francis and Cory Everson took to the stage and quickly popularised the sport.

A new phenomenon, the public lapped it up and the golden girls of bodybuilding quickly reached celebrity status, writing magazine columns, interviewing on chat shows and even starring in the odd hollywood blockbuster.

And the rest, as they say, is history. Here we look at some of the best physiques in female bodybuilding. Enjoy…
