GREAT physique!  How about a basic overview of his training style?

Hint, he trained in the same fashion as his best friend in one of the above pics.

Bix tell me you didnt just say "a Superstar"

The guy in the suit is Marvin Elder one of the naturally strongest men of all time. Marvin could bench over 500lbs and do dips with 300lbs strapped to his waist.

I seems doing dips and chins with 300 lbs. around the waist was popular back then.  Roy Callendar used to do dips and chins with 2 150 db's around his waist.  Bill Pettis used to do dips that way back then.   I tried and failed.  But I could do sets of 50 by myself.

Looks like Harold to me too-big dude, little waist......the good old days, no gorilla bellie.

Roy Callendar was famous for doing those pullups with the big dumbbells straped to him. I have done dips with 100+bells, but pullups are out of the question. Actually, in my prime I could only get 18-20 clean pullupswith my own  bodyweight-today I bet O could only get 2-3.... :'(

A young Dave Mastorakis asks Harold Poole " Hey Mr. Poole, that's a really nice suit. Does that come in your size?" :D


      Bix, is that Mike Mentzer in the one photo with Dave? Is that the friend whose training style he emulated?

      Also, wasn't Mastorakis supposed to have been a natural?

Lord Humungous you are right about Marvin Elder being the strongest guy of his time. Also one of the greatest physiques but the times were not kind to him if you know what I mean.
I started competing in the early 1960's and remember the bad old days of the AAU when the black guys stood no chance under Hoffman. Thank god for Weider.

Jimmy,

Ive heard some stores about hoffman being partial to white BBers. Im not sure but I think I read a interview from Sergio Oliva saying that Bob was a flat out racist. I never thought Elder looked that "black" to me in some pictures ive seen.
