gironda did a series of articles running down jones' nautilus equipment in mber.probably because weider was still pushing his barbells and gironda didn't want to outfit his gym in costly machines.

Funk51 has it right on.

 Gironda's gym was a pretty small place to begin with (so I've been told by older gentleman who actually trained there). The  original Nautilus machines took up a lot of floor space and Gironda wanted to keep most of the equipment he deigned and built himself. Not enough for both.  Nautilus was also extremely expensive at the time. Most newer versions are more compact.

Had been rumored that Gironda was thinking of retiring around that time anyway. Don't believe he owned that 2 story building (been told, might be wrong) on Ventura Blvd. .

Weider could give Gironda a certain amount of cash (contract usually)  to plug his products. But at that time, Weider was making much on  his "supplements" than on equipment.

Make it more narrow and you have a great incline bench with a good spine support

Familiar with the half moon bench.

Original design was for pullovers (straight arm) to stretch the chest/rib box and also the lat's. Also gave a good feel to the spine, seemed to give better  flexibility. Of course lots of other movements on it. Presses (like inclines), fly's, delts, biceps, etc..

I usually go to college or sports complexes, but sure some Moon benches are still used..somewhere.  Can be very functional for some of us. Could use a  heavier exercise ball, getting a stretch something like the original Moon bench. Seen both men and women do that.

                               weider recognized early on that the real money was in supplements.... barbells once you bought them that's it the end of it sure you add a few plates here and there, but supplements you were told to use everyday... a constant need giving weider a constant cash flow from the same customers. pick up a muscle mag now it's all supplements barely 3-4 pages of  equipment or barbells.

Great pictures Funk51.

One of my all time favorite exercises is the bent arm pullover, prefer an Olympic bar but have gotten  good results with DB's also. Straight arm pullovers (Olympic, single DB or EZ bar) are also an excellent movement, but not going to handle near the weight, nor the full stretch, than with the bent arm version.

Bent arm pullovers (BB or DB)combined with presses off the chest, the pullover & press, is a prime mass builder. Hitting all the major muscle groups, including the abs, of the upper body.  Want a wider lat spread, than might suggest the pullover, just about any version.

If below the 24 to 25 age (mean average) limit, than the cartilage between the ribs themselves are still in a plastic stage, where they can be stretched out a bit before advancing age has them more fixed. Old timers knew the value of the pullover (any version) and the affect it had on chest growth. A 46" chest can look good, but adding a couple more inches through rib box expansion , gives a even more impressive look at 48" is even better.  The Half Moon/Moon bench has been ideal for that.

Good Luck
