here's another version from Wikipedia - I don't know how reliable it is but I notice that it's different from the first version that was posted

This was on the American version of Wikipedia and then it changed but you can still see it if you do a Google search and then looked at the cached pages.  I have no clue of the accuracy of the some of the more provacative statements.  Serge can you clarify this?

This is a link to what appears to be the identical text as the cached wiki pages:  http://www.answers.com/topic/serge-nubret

Serge Nubret on the cover of Muscle magazine
Born October 6, 1938
Guadaloupe
Serge Nubret (born October 6, 1938) is a former IFBB professional French bodybuilder.

[edit] Background
Born to a working class family in Guadaloupe, Nubret moved to Paris in the 1950s. He discovered his love of iron in the northern Parisian district of Sarcelles where he worked part-time for the local greengrocer while funding his studies as an aspiring actor and sometime model. His father Franck, a nightclub doorman, instilled in his son a burning desire to succeed and be the best where he himself had failed. An unfortunate cycling accident had cut short his father's bodybuilding career years earlier.

Nubret's frustration at his inability to break onto the international bodybuilding scene led to increasingly erratic behaviour. Like so many ethnic youths living in the Sarcelles housing projects, this "behaviour" soon landed Nubret in a French prison. Serge says to this day that he is terribly ashamed of this dark period of his life.

Later he developed into one of the top professional bodybuilders of his day. He competed many times in the Mr. Olympia and placed as high as second. Serge Nubret was widely praised for having tremendous chest, and abdominal development. Today he is looked at as one of the iconic bodybuilders from the golden era of bodybuilding.

Nowadays, he makes his living delivering speeches to French school and college students on the potential dangers of delinquency. Indeed, as recently as October 2005, Nubret appeared on national television alongside Interior Minister Nicolas Sarkozy in an attempt to quell the rising uprest that flared throughout French towns and cities.

Although Nubret never shone in the iron pumping circuit as brightly as some of the later Adonises of the sport such as Lou Ferrigno and Arnold Schwarzenegger, he remains to this day an icon and inspiration to many younger budding French bodybuilders. He will remain one of the early trailblazers in this oft-maligned sport, championing the cause for those in lower socio-economic backgrounds. He has also featured in many bodybuilding and fitness articles, as well as appearing on the cover of MUSCLE magazine.

Serge can also be found helping users at BodyBuilding.com's IFBB Pro message boards, where he holds IFBB status.

Aloha, Serge, Many years back I had the opportunity to have a long talk with you while sitting on the seawall at Venice Beach. I forget the topics of our conversation but I have always appreciated and remarked about your candid and honest approach to all my questions about the bodybuilding and IFBB situation back then.

I have always felt that Arnold owns a lot of credit to Joe Gold and would not be where is is today if it wasn't for that early association.

But I also feel that many other other bodybuilding athletes (including yourself) were treated a bit unfairly due to that associaton. (Can you offer your comments on this subject?)

I also recall meeting Paco (last name forgotten) and I believe you introduced him to us at the old Golds in Santa Monica on 2nd street. I also had a decent conversation with him in the gym.

OK, good seeing you on here and I wish you much success in all your endeavors.

Thanks, Slaveboy. I am sorry to hear that.

If memory serves me  right, Paco was the heir or founder of some major perfume empire and I believe I saw his name (Paco) on an expensive bottle of men's calogne recently.

Am I right in assuming that this connection is correct?

RIP, Paco.

Paco was the Owner of Elizabeth Arden for Spain, but the family business is the Laboratory LILY of Dianapolis, which is a very important one for chimical  and pharmacy products.

I will not reveal his name but he is short and white and judging by his name could be related to a spaghetti manufacturer. He is in the start of the film then again half way through where he states something to Arnold. He is not a competitor in the Universe or Olympia that year.
The more I think about it the more I believe I should maybe write a book too. I could expose the world of bestiality, wife sharing, filmed group homosexual activities (especially at the post Mr Universe and Mr America parties) and other deviancies which went on within the organisation of the IFBB. You would not believe how many "macho heroes" would do such nancy activities. No wonder so many ex bodybuilders are now preachers, ministers or born again christians, they certainly have plenty to be ashamed about.


 

This misterious spaghetti manufacturer has to be Ed Giulianni . Grin

Hey, Disgusted, those are a lot of sets for sure. How do you utilize the weight increments from set to set to keep the reps at 12 all the time, and STILL keeping the intensity as high as possible? I mean, do you use the same weight for all the 8 sets, not including the warm up sets? If so, how can you keep falling at the 12th rep EVERY TIME and with the maximum intensity being kept, not missing one rep?

Care to explain a little more of that? Thanks in advance.

Some people are just dumbfounded when you (or anyone else including me) says that you just train with what feels right that day at that time. I always have people asking me questions about how much I lift, eat, sets, reps, routines and I always reply that I do what feels right at the time, nothing is planned out.

I'm sorry, Serge, but i 've read every page of this thread and didn't find SPECIFICALLY the part where you adress your poundages to meet the 8 sets/12 reps per exercise cryteria and keeping the intensity at its maximum at all times, reaching failure at every set , at the 12 th rep.

If it won't cause you too much haressment, please, would you speak about it for the eleventh time?

Thanks in advance.

I can put in my mind the weight i want, i can have any weight in the barre and have in my mind less or more weight that is realy, so in this way it is for me easier to go each time to failure.

I did my second chest workout on Mon and my chest is still sore. In fact it is even more sore this time arould. The first time I just kinda kept the weight the same thru out all the sets. This time I went heavier the first couple of sets. I am not really sure that this mattered, but I can tell you that you get fatigued really quick. Like Serge said, weight does not really mean much. Don't let the weight use you, you need to control the weights!
