i think the most amazing transformation ever in bodybuilding is the bruce randall story, he went from 415 or so pounds reduced to 185 then built back up to 225 and won the nabba mr u. check pics.

Wow!

I'd seen pics before, but only the one where he's squatting, and then the after, his signature Universe(one arm o/head) pose.

Amazing, how tall was/is this guy, and what the hell did he do? This is pre-ephedrine/clen/dnp!

he won the mr u in 1959. before that bruce was in the service and wanted to play football but was a little on the light side, so like a bulking experiment gone wrong he just ate and trained till he hit his max weight and then decided to cut down for physique comp. according to the mags at the time he curtailed his eating and did an enormous amount of sets per bodypart. bruce was probably around 6 ft or so, i met him in  person in the late 60's and he was taller than me 5 ft 8.

When getting interested in serious intent lifting (at 16), a friend of my uncles had a collection of original Iron Man magazines, dating back to the '50. I want to say late '40's but I might be wrong. He let me borrow them for a while to get some ideas about training. Bruce Randell was a feature in some of the articles. He gained most of that 400(?) while in the Navy, stationed at Great Lakes, if memory serves me right. Don't know why the Navy let him get so overweight, but that was the story. Must have looked great in a set of navy blues. Ready supply of food for him, most of the time. I've heard the Navy gets the best food in the service.

He did the old fashion heavy, high rep training mostly. With squats, Hise shrugs, Hopper DL's, SLDL's, Hip lifts, presses, etc. Not just 20 reps but up to 40,  at times. That heavy breathing induced with moving outrageous work loads, with higher reps, almost demanded that the body get larger and stronger. And very fast at that. Probably had a lot to do with his impressive chest/rib box development. Compound exercise were king back in those days. That and drinking enough whole milk to float a boat. Some guy's drank half & half than. Of course meat and eggs to round out that well balanced diet. Randell, and guy's like him, didn't want to look pretty, just slap on the muscle. Adding extra fat was not the main concern. That would be the concern after gaining the muscle mass while hoisting huge training weights.

I believe Randell was doing inspirational speaking tours at high schools last I heard.  He must be in his 70's by now.  Good Luck

Side Bar:To the older BB'ing vet's; In that photo of Randell with the two other gentlemen, is the one on the left Bob Hinds? I believe that's his name. One of the truly natural muscular men of that era.

Apparently, he was ahead of his time. That seems to be today's norm.

Of course, he was doing it on purpose (I forget who he had a conversation with that gave him the idea/motivation), but still...

Ya i remember reading that story in the 70s. Even more impressive considering there was little or no surgery to get rid of loose skin.

You would expect strech marks and lots of loose skin.

SOme people have great skin elasticity.  I have stretch marks on my pec/delt tie-in like most guys and very few on my sides now.  But considering how big I am now I don't have many.  Even the dermatologist I went to said it was amazing I didn't have many stretch marks.  I am hoping that when I finally get back down to my normal weight I don't have loose skin.  I will hate that

It's an example of the integrity of the muscle UNDER the fat built w/ heavy weights.

I don't know if any of you ever saw a pic of Dave Tate at his Max Body weight, and now, these days after losing the fat for health reasons.  Anyone says them big strong PLers are all fat is a Dumbshit. There's a lot of muscle under that fat and water.

Cool photos Guys.
