The scene in Pumping Iron where Ed Corney and Arnold were squatting was always a source of inspiration for me when I trained legs.

I haven't watched it in a while, I think I'll watch on my next leg day.

Good choice!

As for Ed, well as many times as I'd been to the original Gold's I don't recall ever meeting him but can say that he was still an inspiration to me via the book and film, "Pumping Iron".  He will outlive turds like Coleman, Cutler and Phildo both in total years and in the collective memory of men that train for more than their ego.

That`s because todays gyms are populated with regular average people,(most who have no clue as to why they are even there), as opposed to back in the day when most members were bodybuilding,powerlifters,arm-wrestling competitively,or Olympic weightlifters........... . among other serious track & field athletes who trained hard with the heavy iron.

In a few words................... ..todays gyms suck.

It brings back fond memories to me to have been involved all those great years full of great bodybuilders and gym camaraderie,but in the same vein,I feel a huge loss because that atmosphere no longer exists.

Anyone my age, older, or a bit younger,knows exactly what I`m trying to convey.  :(

More early Ed:

Does anyone know when this photograph was taken?  I've never seen him look this young;  he must be in his 20s or close to it.

R.I.P, Ed.

I also met and spoke with Ed a couple times. Always a pleasure to speak to. One of the greatest posers in bodybuilding.  PIP

I was a friend of Ed's before he turned pro. I think that happened in one of the contests held within the San Jose area at which I attended along with one of Ed's training partners and my good USMC bud by the name of Wanye Anderson who also passed away recently.

I think it was Bob's Gym in Newark, Cal. in which both Wayne and Ed  trained.

I had breakfast/lunch with Ed at the bodybuilding world's famous hole in wall restaurant in Venice (THE GERMAN's) on the day that he decided to retire from competition but don't ask me what year that occured.

I know a lot of the old-timers and have got to say that Ed stood out as one of the great all around gents in this game!

ED, RIP!

You too, WAYNE!

Did he pull copious amounts of pussy? That striped tank top and mustache gives me pause.

My gym has the original Gary Jones Hammer strength machine. No one knows who Gary Jones is let alone his father.

I'm still friends with Gary.  Met his dad twice.  Dad was crazy. Gary is not crazy.  Dad died rich. Gary is filthy rich.

PS.  Gary Jones dad was Arthur Jones... he invented Nautilus. 

PSS. Ed Corney was a good man and he will be missed.  A real legend in bodybuilding.

Does Gary workout and keep in good shape? How old is he now and did Arthur have any other children? I'm a huge fan of Arthur Jones and has Gary given you any insights, the inside skinny as it were, on his father? What he was like in his private life.

I think it's an injustice that he isn't more widely known like his contemporary, Joe Weider. I believe that it had a lot to do with his personality and being so difficult to get along with.

P last time I saw Gary he was in dreadful shape. Just skinny fat. Sort of embracing

Google "Gary Jones Hammer strength" and you'll find some pics and current news.  

Arthur was frequently suing Gary.   Jones Sr. was quite clearly unbalanced.  

I don't know if Gary has any brothers or sisters.

Thanks for that info. I did google Gary but he looked OK to me. Doesn't look like a guy that workouts regularly but didn't look unhealthy. Just like his father. I think at some point working out and trying to keep muscle mass drops precipitously as you get older and trying to run a business.

I wonder what Jones' senior was suing his son for? Very Ferrigno-est

No doubt Ed was iconic in bodybuilding. Saw him pose in his prime and got to meet him briefly after where he signed my Pumping Iron poster. Wish I still had it.

I haven't watched it in a while, I think I'll watch on my next leg day.

they were going all out that is true hard training.
