The one photo of Arnold where his chest looks unnaturally huge makes me wonder if this fellow is doing more than just colorizing these photos. Personally, I prefer black and white photos, but this is just a matter of taste.

i think he is just colorizing what people give him in terms of pics. they may or may not have been altered before hand...

If you had told me somebody was trying/planning to do this, I would have very simply dismissed it as an unnecessary "desicration" to bodybuilding history.

However, after seeing these photos, I am THOROUGHLY IMPRESSED and quite happy to see the results!!

Great photographs of great physiques.  My preferred medium for this is the  original  B&W but these are nice enough with a somewhat "aged patina" to them.

Doubt that he did, but Arnold looks like he had calf implants, sitting on that bench. Also, from that angle, really higher calves than recalling to ever see before on him. I'm probably wrong..just saying.

There had been rumors (I had been told by older BB'ers) that Arnold did go under the knife for calves. Anyone know if he did, or didn't.

Never the less, Arnold was on top of his game when those picture were taken.

arnold was said to have left the scene for a while when he came back he had much improved calves which he attributed to the reg park system of overloaded calf work??????? a now deceased top bodybuilder stated that not only did arnold have calf implants but he had some chest work done as welll.... who knows for sure.

LOL...
Was this deceased top bodybuilder also a bitter bodybuilder?  :)

My buddies and I all heard the calf implant rumors while growing up. Personally, I can believe it since Arnold's calves seem to have retained very good size and shape well into his advanced years. I'm not claiming to know anything, though. It's just pure conjecture on my part.

Interesting pic of Sandow. Probably what the average man would want to look like.

Sandow did a  one arm bent press around 300lbs officially Authur Saxon did a unofficial bent press above 400lbs around the same time. No drugs, but old time strongmen drank a lot of beer, been told.

Thanks Funk51.  You data base must be beyond belief.

Bud Counts, impressive indeed.  Brenner, more of a natural flow to his body. Today's guy's look like comic book characters...which seems to be what the BB'ing fans want. Oh Well.

I think that injury has occurred in late 1973 or early 1974. In 1973 at the Mr International was OK, but in only the few images with him from 1974, Sergio already had the problem.

Wynter had a superb v-taper and was (I believe) much shorter than the man in question, who I think might well be Henry Greaves of Trinidad.

Even decades before the now standard H.S. (HeathScale®) was established by GetBig Labs™ No white lab coats needed®, Larry Scott was more than 1.5 Heaths wide.   ;D  Great physique, hair and smile.  No wonder women loved the man.

The only problem I see with the book idea is the inevitable copyright issues associated with many of those pictures.

The photo of Larry Scott with Freddie Ortiz will ALWAYS remain my favorite "buddy pic" in the world of bb, but this one gives it a run for it's money.
I don't even recall ever seeing the original.

Serge catches heat on here about only looking good in one or two poses, but I couldn't care less about the detractors. This photo is about as bad-ass as you can get in the classic genre!!!

Probably so they wouldn't have to listen to Gironda bitch at them!

I have a vertical leg press machine in my garage, which I got cheap on craigslist. I love it!

As for Vince Gironda and squats (and leg pressing)... he seemed to strongly favor a more wire-y, compact type of physique rather than the thicker builds associated with back squats, such as Reg Park and Bill Pearl. Even John Grimek, whose example first inspired Gironda in the field of bodybuilding, used the squat as a foundation of his routine. And of course, as part of the Hoffman/York crew, Grimek was also known as an Olympic lifter; whereas Gironda was against Olympic lifts for bodybuilders.

Reading through a lot of Gironda's books and articles, I have noticed that Gironda would strongly recommend against back squats except in very rare cases; he thought they developed the glutes too much and widened the hip structure. However, he seemed to remain absolutely silent when it came to specific examples of bodybuilders who used heavy back squats in their routines, such as the aforementioned Pearl, Park and Grimek.

Funk is a quality poster.

I've often wondered what many of these photos would look like in color.
And, while it's wonderful to see them in this alternate condition, I find that I prefer the B&W versions of most.

I don't know if it's simply that I'm used to seeing them that way, or do they "lose something" when altered?

i agree they do lose something in their transformation into color and the quality of the coloration depends on the original b and w pic.

either being nostalgic or the rose tinted glasses effect
Much prefer them in their original Black & White
Though its great to see them in colour

Maybe posting the original & the colour one side by side

Brad Harris was someone that I always listened to when he talked about training. He trained along side bodybuilding royalty but never competed. He was just someone that loved to train. He also was very dedicated to cardio. One article I have he said he doesn't train his legs with weights. I found that unusual. He said he trains his legs with running and biking. He like all of us changed his routine from time to time but he wrote he generally used three exercises a body part for three sets of 12.
