Lisa Boushard had hernia surgery October 3, and has been in recovery until this month. Lisa started competing in 2001 and qualified for nationals in 2005. This year she placed 2nd at the Masters and 4th at the USA’s. Lisa, during an interview with Hot Rod Anglican, gave this advice to aspiring female bodybuilders:
I would say to stay true to yourself and create a work of art with your body that you love!! Not to do anything they will not be proud of or regret. Bodybuilding is so unique and the physique can be so beautiful if created properly. Find someone to help you with your contest prep that has experience working with female bodybuilders and that will listen to your goals and concerns in every aspect of the sport. I feel that this sport takes a special type of person with a lot of drive and dedication to become the best they can be.
