true, they were outrageous, especially for the time.

the arm at top of thread looks unbelievable for 1950 Shocked

over 20". gh15 has stated many times that guys were using test from the 1940's - and when i see an arm like that in 1950! well, you've got to wonder. Undecided

Ortiz was asked how much protein do you take and he was quoted saying "Who needs protein when you have dianabol".

Check out this pic, probably one of the first guys to have a split in his bicep.

Pearl was great.

Why was Grimek such a star, was he being promoted by someone? I mean, did he have backing from a magazine, or sponsor/s, he was very well built, but there were other physiques on par in the era.

grimek predates pearl by 15 to 20 years. john grimek was being pushed by hoffman and the strength and health mags, when hoffman started up muscular developent mag in early 60's grimek was the first editor.

Trying to establish why he was so "big", but I suppose he was best of his time.

Had no idea Perl was that age. Great long career. Aged well.
