WPW-350: Michele Maroldo

Despite training for nearly 10 years, Michele entered her first national show early in 1998, at the NPC Junior USA. WPW has included her prejudging and evening routines on this tape, but the rest of the photo/video session took place in September, when she was still chiseled at an unreal 5'4" 155 pounds!!

No need to go into detail about the obvious -- Michele has the best biceps and triceps in the history of the sport, and her chest and back poses aren't far behind. Her truly awesome upper body will distract the viewer from realizing just how good her lower body is: chiseled calves, great abs and very strongly developed thighs. Her facial beauty, topped with a gorgeous mane of long, long, red hair tops off one of the most spectacularly muscled women ever.

WPW opens with extended gym footage, where she does effortless chins and very strict curls culminating in a body weight curl for reps. But, that was not nearly enough footage to watch those arms in curling action, so WPW did more repetitions at every angle, then rep work for triceps, chest and lat pull downs as well.

Then, on to Michele's first ever photo/video shoot, and she blew WPW away with all her shots in four different outfits, two different bikinis and two great looking dresses, all live posing action!

Her interview and stage routines close this video off. An incredibly developed woman.

WPW-150: Raye Hollitt

Along with Rachel McLish, Cory Everson and Lenda Murray, Raye has been one of the most well-known and popular women bodybuilders ever. Some of that was a result of her bodybuilding career and success in the Extravaganza Strength Contests, but she gained even more fame as the American Gladiator 'ZAP' as well as for a few roles in feature movies.

WPW met Raye as a very young amateur bodybuilder in the early 80's, then she started to really put some size on a few years later.

This title features the best of WPW's tapings with her from 1985 through 1987 where she was usually in big off-season condition, but was in great contest shape for the last of three sessions in 1987. There is gymwork, posing in many outfits, interview and her bodybuilding routine and her strength lifting in the 1988 Extravaganza strength show, now on DVD for the first time.

WPW-150 Video/DVD runs 2 3/4 hours.
