Dawn Alison is no ordinary female bodybuilder. Even by the extraordinary (and occasionally superhuman) standards of top flight female muscle sport, bodybuilder Dawn Alison is remarkable.

Not for Dawn the regular female bodybuilder interview – y'know, the one where the 97lb, skinny, shy girl turns into a sexy, confident, muscular powerhouse through the discipline of bodybuilding.

Because, as you can see from our lead picture, powerlifter-turned-bodybuilder Dawn Alison has been a lifelong muscular phenomenon.

Not long after horsewoman Dawn turned 20 she was deadlifting – and any guys with an inferiority complex may want to look away here – MORE THAN 500LBS!

Indeed,  at the Greater Texas Classic in 1991 Dawn was recorded as deadlifting 501lbs – a world record weight.

She had already met her first husband international powerlifter Doug Young by this time and his brute strength powerlifting training routines help pack masses of muscle on Dawn's young frame.

So much muscle in fact that in Dawn made the switch to competitive female bodybuilding and took the stage for the first time in 1992.

Two decades later Dawn - more muscular than ever, but now super-conditioned, rock hard and beautifully balanced – won the 2013 Canadian Bodybuilding Nationals and took second in the North Americans Masters Heavyweight Bodybuilding category.

She is now hungrily eyeing her first IFBB Pro Card – which is surely only a show away.

Dawn told realfemalebodybuilding.com: “I have been bodybuilding for 30 years and I am still lifting full on, keeping my eye on my goal and continuing to get better and better.

“Bodybuilding is empowering and gives you control over yourself, how you look and feel, your self-esteem, self-confidence, and strength.

“Bodybuilding, more than anything else in life, will give you back what you give.”
