WTF Wednesday: Firming Your Figure (1981)

Hallo Wednesday! Hallo WTF!

This week's focus is Firming Your Figure, the Consumer Guide from 1981 filled with 96 pages of a woman in Adidas jogging shorts over panty hose (sometimes legwarmers) demonstrating 7 days of exercises designed to give you the best figure you've ever had. 

This glorious magazine was sent to me by my friend Allison from Robin Egg Surprise Vintage.

Start off with some abdominal exercises.

leg up

Do the best you can.


You should feel a tingling in the legs.

Run in place, then grab your foot.


Don't forget your wrists.


Now slump.


And hunch.


And slump again.

slump again

That's it! You got it.

As with all wtf wednesdays, there are no answers, only questions leading to more questions.

Forget her about those raccoon eyes in one of the pictures. Maybe she's sweating so much her mascara has run all over her face?
If that's what you look like after.....count me out.

ha! i think it's too much mascara, they also overdid the blush rouge in a couple shots - making her look like a...creepy clown! even when i don't post pictures of creepy clowns, i post pictures of creepy clowns.
