Marilyn Monroe looks every bit sultry in these rare images of her working out in a terry cloth bikini. She was photographed with her guns of steel by Philippe Halsman for LIFE magazine. The images were assembled and taken in her cheap two-room apartment on the outskirts of Los Angles. Get ready to see Marilyn in this amazing photoshoot on the cutting room floor. Here is one of the world’s most beautiful women doing things too manly for her time.
1. I pray the Lord my muscles peak
2. If squats did not exist, it would be necessary to invent them
3. Does “Swoletaire” work better here?
4. Giggle-fit at work
5. Best things in world are not touch, they are lift.
6. Early to press, early to feast makes a woman hurly, burly and beast
7. Buy me my protein shake
8. One doesn’t get the life like mine easily
9. Come with me, I want to show you something
10. Nothing feels as good as workout
11. This shape doesn’t come easily
12. Every exercise encounters a healthy diet
