I was a PT at the local Gold's Gym and Greg stood right in front of counter before a workout right after the Master's Mr. O that was in Atlanta and told everyone that he took like 3rd place right behind Big Lou.  The owner and I went to the show and he saw us there.  Greg had some type of problem and showed up to pre-judging late so the judges didn't even let him compete in the night show.  He was allowed to guest pose.  What a tool!  We both cracked the hell up.  He did look good when he almost won the NOC competing with Haney a decade earlier.

 Great thread.

 They should get a division going that tries to replicate the physiques of this era. I'm not talking men's physique or crap like that. I mean something that directly and unashamedly is going after the Zane, Arnold, Serge, Robbie, Bertil look... and actually rewards it.

Jeff King in May 2012 Iron Man!
on:March 14, 2012, 05:19:26 PM    Reply with quote

Well, it's taken some time, but my Legends of Bodybuilding interview with Jeff King is finally appearing in the May issue of Iron Man. Not only is this the first interview Jeff's done in almost twenty years, it has great photo support!

I'm so glad this is going to see print. Jeff is a great guy, and this is the third (and hopefully, best) interview we've done together.

Man, you guys got it made. Imagine being able to sit around all day and admire pictures of men? Unfortunately for me I have a business to run. When The children started coming along I had to choose to be an adult. Lol...I'm lucky to get twenty minutes to myself to bang out a few sets on the weight bench in my basement. Lol.

I was wondering when some frustrated little trolling fuck nut would come along

Predictably enough, one did!

It was just far too positive...

Yes,you owe me $ 30,000.00 !!  Grin

I`ve known Jeff since he was a teenager........moved from N.J. to my hometown to attend Springfield College........then he moved to Missouri and now lives back in Mass.

Really one of the nicest people you could ever meet.

I know it sounds like a cliche`,but he would always help anyone out as long as it wasn`t during his training which obviously,he took very serious.

Haha,i just found out,i lost all my pics when my old computer died so i just went on ironage to look for these and read that you had lost the pics i sent to you,so i thought i`d put them back on here for you.
Saw Richard Roy guest pose in a local contest here in the UK in 85,he weighed about 250lbs and was monstrous,and only about 5"7 tall as well.The thing i noticed with all the top AAU guys in the 80s was the similar leg shape they all had,wonder if it was down to doing front squats with the heeels on a board.
