I once asked Darden if he got any shots of Jones training Sergio but sadly he didn't.  Sergio never looked better than when Jones was prepping him for the '71 Mr Universe.

I disagree. Sergio only went down there for a few weeks. How much credit could Jones take for his physique for "training" him for that period of time?.  He looked his best around 1972. He used volume and plenty of it prior and after Jones. Anyone who trained in the same gym as Sergio will state the same. Three day classic split of chest/back, legs and delts/arms with a lot of sets.

thats a awesome casual photo of Sergio I think that's from the early 1980s, I use too have that and a heap of others up on my wall in the late 1980s was intrigued with who he was he definitely was old school...as in having a proper paying job working 9 to 5 like a lot of guys back then too make a living was one of a kind Sergio was probably 10-15 years ahead of his time.

I understand that Sergio Jr. is playing the part of his father in the upcoming Joe & Ben Weider bio-pic movie "Bigger," which is supposed to be released later in 2018. Calum Von Moger is playing a young Arnold.

It's frustrating that there is still no marketing for this movie. I want to know more!
