True pioneer of women's bodybuilding. Though for me it was a personal choice. I went to school with Laura for threes years back in the the late 60,s. Sadly we lost touch with each other, so when I read that she had passed away I wanted to get this book about her. She was my best friend, and I will love and miss her. I am truly sorry that I was not close to her at the end.

Female bodybuilding has difficulty retaining and attracting sponsors. I'm looking at the inside cover of the book Winning Women's Bodybuilding by Laura Combes. As well as being a guide for bodybuilding training and nutrition, the autobiographical book describes how Laura won the Ms. Florida and first Ms. America titles in 1980. Inscribed on the inside cover of my copy of her book is, "To Richard, whose friendship, knowledge, and encouragement made all this possible - Much love, Laura. On page 10, Laura says, "Richard was one of the first major male bodybuilders to come out in favor of a muscular look for women.

I'd seen this woman in my teens and she really was the cutting edge of the sport. Didnt follow this though and one day I was tallking with a friend of mine about athletes and this woman came to mind. I looked her up on the net along with other body builders like Franco Columbo and was shocked to learn of her untimely death in her mid 30's I believe it was. I got the book more as a kind of memorial to her, sounds stupid but didn't know her or her family to say I was sorry to hear of her untimely death. The book is a perfect example of her discipline and dedication. I was pleased at the depth of information she shared. I'm sure for anyone wanting good training advice it has valuable info to share. And hey, you cant deny the results.

I had originally purchased this book in the late 1970's when I began lifting. Although Laura is deceased (and at a young age), I got it this time for the nutrition information, which Laura had gotten from top Florida bodybuilder (at the time) Richard Baldwin.

True pioneer of women's bodybuilding. One of my idols! She had such a great physique and her posing was the best! Great book! It's very interesting how much the sport has changed. R.I.P. Laura

She sure did it without the steroids. Someone to really admire. Sad that she drank to her death. A good book for those who needs a guide to natural bodybuilding.
