Impressive then as it is now. I believe she was 21-22 back in that video clip. I like that agressive look.

When is this from ? It looks very 80s/ early 90s?

I would say 1987-89 IIRC.

That was courtesy of WPW who recorded FBB's in contest and off-season condition, posing and lifting. I remember Cindy in the 80's but more trimmed down and dolled up for contests, but never realized she had that kind of strength; I'm confident she was natural. Other greats from the late 80's in terms of physique (contest and off season) and strength were Tazzie Colomb and Marissa Brown. Both were more massive that Cindy and o/strong fbb's i.e. Shelly Beattie and Kris Luebke who measured 5-7 or taller (Colomb and Brown were 5-6). All of these women were attractive and could have progressed the sport into the 90's but the IFBB was afraid of their strength and size. Beattie placed high at pro shows in the early 90's but only after downsizing; she drew a lot more attention as an Amercian Gladiator in buff condition.
