The pictures is hysterical.  The stuff you all put on here make me laugh out loud.

Here is a pic of my stuff....I barely got anything.  Some people had these huge bags stuffed already

Met Branch.  He looks really tired.  Vince Taylor and Labrada were small. Like exercise enthusiasts, not ex-pros.  But I know that they can't keep that size and definition forever.  Just a bit of a buzzkill.

Tony Atlas was just sitting there.  20 years ago he was at the top of wrestling.  Sad.

The booth women throughout are fantastic.

Does GetBig have a group that gets together in Vegas for the Olympia?  I'm here and am wondering who is who? 

I've been reading the boards every day for years now and would like to put faces to the names.

Everyone is hysterical.

You guys don't know who Arthur Jones is.....

He is the founder of Nautilus (exercise equipment) and is the person who came up with the idea of intensity over long workouts.

He had a facility in Colorado that they would train people (Casey Viator - youngest Mr. America ever, 3rd place, Mr. O) and Mike Mentzer (2nd place Mr. Olympia, only perfect score as a heavyweight at a Mr. Universe contest).  These guys would do these high intensity workouts 3x/week, 20 minutes, 30 minutes tops.  In 12 weeks, they would go from out of shape to contest ready. 

From this point, it died down a bit, until Yates resurrected it.  Then, everyone followed it again.  Now Mark Dugdale is leading the group of high-intensity, low volume trainers.

So, Arthur Jones was a revolutionary mind in the sport of bodybuilding....if he didn't come along, we'd all still be training 6 days/week, 2-3 hours/day.
4  Getbig Main Boards / Gossip & Opinions / What happened to these former stars / what is happening to our sport? on: December 16, 2006, 06:56:53 AM
I have been wondering for a while what happened to the following after their pro careers ended....

Dale Ruplinger (1983 Mr. USA) - "The Man with the Hollow Bones"
Shane DiMora - Youngest NPC Nationals Champion (Middleweight, I believe) ever at 18 years old.
Chuck Williams (NPC Light-Heavyweight Nationals winner the same year as Haney and Charles Glass)
Tonya Knight - She was as popular as any top fitness girl is today
Sue Price - Same thing as Tonya Knight
Phil Hill - Won a few shows then disappeared.

One other thing...I have been following the sport since 1982, and it is incredible to me how short a pro's career lasts today vs. the '70's and '80's. 

When I look at Flex from 1999 or 2000, so few of those top guys are still around (Levrone, Matarazzo, Ray, Wheeler, El Sonbaty, Tom Prince, Don Long).  Even the NPC National winners don't hang around too long.

Is it the amount of drugs, the dieting, the lack of $$$, or some other reason?

I am curious who you are talking about?  Can you give us his first name, initials or something like that?
