It has now been updated as of 8 March 2021. * Please watch the video first before reading the article - The video only goes up to 2016 and does not contain footage of later Mr Olympia winners.   In these modern times the ‘Mr Olympia’ is considered the KING of ALL bodybuilding contests.

    Disgust with Modern Bodybuilding by Strength Oldschool

    Long gone are the days of the "classic" bodybuilding look - Wide shoulders, big arms, tiny waist, athletic legs, oozing health and vitality. Serge Nubret (pictured above) was a prime example of this. The classic, flowing lines have vanished and sadly, possibly never to be seen again. From the mid '90's onwards, the sport of bodybuilding took a dive and plunged into a state of mass, belly freaks! Blame the drugs, the judges, the bodybuilders themselves, whomever...bodybuilding unfortunately becam

Well here’s first hand accounts taken from people who have trained with Arnold and observed him training in real life.     FIRST HAND ACCOUNTS David C New mentions:

Expect no bullshit from Strength Oldschool. No company is perfect, there will always be something negative to say regarding either the product, the delivery service, custom

  • Ronnie Coleman 315 lbs Strict Barbell Curl

    I came across this photo online showing Big Ronnie Coleman curling 143 kg (315 lbs) using a straight barbell. Is this photo real? It looks real. Was Ronnie strong? He sure was. The only thing about this photo that bothers me is the fact that writer Chris Sloan states it was a "STRICT" curl!! Ronnie Coleman was Gorilla strong but was he strong enough to perform a strict barbell curl with 143 kg (315 lbs)? By the way, in case anyone hasn't watched Ronnie's documentary entitled: "

    The Biggest and Strongest Bodybuilder from the 1980s You May Not Have Heard Of - Craig Monson

    Craig Monson was a huge bodybuilder who spent several years in San Quentin Jail. He competed at a ripped bodyweight of +270 lbs at a time when the biggest bodybuilders were around 240 lbs. When I say ripped, I mean just sheer BEASTLY size with NO bubble gut / bloated belly like today's Mr Olympia giants. He even made Sergio Oliva look small! At a height of 6ft 2, he dwarfed competitors with arms over 23 inches!   Strength Feats included 400 pounds on bench
