The 2 arm bicep at #7 above looks legit, from MB magazine, around 1969.

Arnold had a lot of size back in his NABBA days.

1980 was the "swan-song" of the 1970's, and after the 1982 contest, the 70's era was over.

Those hips/curves gotta be photoshopped?

I don't think so.  The old MB/P mags show almost the same thing.  She had a serious hour-glass shape.  Joe liked the extremes.

Same woman, unless you mean the effect makeup has on her

Different woman, IMO.  Different noses for one thing.

Of course, they could have touched up the after photo, in which case the after photo is simply a computer graphics image.

Boron had its day back in the early 1980's.

It was popular right before Yohimbe Bark, I believe.

Racist posts are allowed as long as you are in the "click" and use a gimmick account.

When you spell "clique" as "click", you're probably not a member.

Funny how we've evolved back to Dodge City, circa 1865.

If anyone could do 600 x 6, they'd look a little more like Jon Cole than Ben Johnson.

11  Getbig Main Boards / Gossip & Opinions / Re: Ben Johnson squatted 600 pounds for 6 reps on: November 14, 2013, 08:10:53 AM
There is a "little" difference between bench squats (or box squats) and an actual squat.

Zabo always said there was no pot of gold at the end of the rainbow in bodybuilding. Arnold found his gold in Hollywood then real estate.


Vince, Zabo actually did find his "pot of gold" at the end of the rainbow, by working and living at Gold's Gym.

That's what he loved and he spent much of his time doing just that.
13  Getbig Main Boards / Gossip & Opinions / Re: Dan Lurie RIP 1923-2013. on: November 07, 2013, 07:14:09 PM

Dan seemed to annoy a lot of people but in retrospect the musclemen weren't paid much by any of them which is a real pity. Zabo always said there was no pot of gold at the end of the rainbow in bodybuilding. Arnold found his gold in Hollywood then real estate.

Vince, keep in mind that Grimek, Lurie, Eiferman, Pearl, Coe, Arnold, and many, many others went into bodybuilding related businesses.  None of these guys believed that they were going to make a living or get rich simply by taking off their shirt and posing.

None of the guys who competed in AAU events were ever paid a penny by Hoffman or anyone else.   Did they think Joe or Dan were going to write them big checks because they competed in the IFBB or WBBG?

:)lou and dan in " happier days " before weider convinced lou to sue dan as weider had convinced serhio o and arnold to also sue lurie. he was very litigious

Lou was in MTI as a bulked up teenager.  Truely, it was Lurie who believed in Ferrigno.

Can we now argue if he was natural or not?


no, no really....

One of the major icons of the Iron Game, and the last of the five major muscle mag publishers, after Hoffman, Rader, Weider and Kennedy.

His MTI mag had a much more rugged bent than the Weider mags, concentrating on strength as well as size, and very little fluff.   He also had a  Wrestling Training Illustrated magazine as well, for a short time.  No soap-opera bullshit for bullshit's sake.  No Triple-Split programs, and endless Arnold routines, etc.

He had a big annual show with the WBBG Mr. World, America, etc, every year.  Boyer Coe won the WBBG Mr. World during Boyer's heyday for about 5 years in a row, prior to Boyer finally entering the IFBB.

Lurie mentored and promoted Ferrigno during Lou's early years in his magazines.  That is, until big Lou suddenly became a Weider student.

RIP to Dan
17  Getbig Main Boards / Gossip & Opinions / Re: Miami Dolphins Jonathan Martin - Gay? on: November 06, 2013, 05:10:55 PM
My guess is that Martin was on his way to being cut anyway.

No rookie in their right mind would jeopardize their whole NFL career because of one or two nasty players.

And how was Martin being extorted financially (blackmailed or threatened)?

Martin did nothing illegal to allow someone to extort.

Manfred doesn't lift anymore, he's involved in some green energy ventures in Europe as of a few years ago. He use to coach Strongmen and was heavily involved in a start up Strongman organization at one point.

Green energy ventures?  How very ironic...

Dan Hodge still does it

Danny Hodge has been doing that for probably close to 60 years.
22  Getbig Main Boards / Gossip & Opinions / Re: List of pro wrestler's bench presses on: October 23, 2013, 11:46:12 AM
Point is, there is no requirement nor any expectation that those bench numbers are legitimate.  Wrestlers are not expected to be truthful, about wrestling, training, drug use, or frankly, anything else.  Poetic license.
23  Getbig Main Boards / Gossip & Opinions / Re: Alternate History - Arnold LOSES 1980 Olympia, Mentzer wins on: October 23, 2013, 07:15:20 AM
Another "alternative history": how about if Arnold had showed up in 1980 with muscular legs and back?

He'd have won a little more convincingly.....
24  Getbig Main Boards / Gossip & Opinions / Re: Twerking In Target... on: October 22, 2013, 05:52:39 PM
Most of this belongs on a National Geographic web site.

just sayin....
25  Getbig Main Boards / Gossip & Opinions / Re: List of pro wrestler's bench presses on: October 22, 2013, 11:25:15 AM
I believe both R/R Animal and Jim the Anvil Neidhardt were as strong as their claims.

Neidhart had a huge power clean (I can't recall the amount) and could "hip-toss" guys across the ring with a great deal of momentum back in the early 1980's in Mid-South Wrestling.  He had some legit throwing records as well, I believe.

Animal was one of the stongest wrestlers I'd ever seen.  While I realize that pressing a wrestler overhead is assisted by the guy being lifted, Animal used to do reps, and a without knee-bend or momentum.  He'd do it like a strict military press on purpose to show his strength.  

At the same time, bench claims are bound to be over-stated, just based on the fact that everybody else is adding over 50 lbs more, except for the competitive powerlifters like Arcidi, Furnas and Kaz.
