About Me

  1. * This article by Strength Oldschool was initially written on Dec 3, 2016. 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. Who ever wins the Mr Olympia is simply known as the best bodybuilder on the planet. It’s a title that every single heavyweight competitive bodybuilder hopes to win. Before the Mr Olympia contest was created, bodyb
  2. 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 became and has become a freak show for the wrong reasons. No wonder it's not an Olympic sport because one
  3. Any true bodybuilding fans in this world MUST appreciate just how AMAZING Arnold's arms really were. Genetically blessed and driven by a superior work ethic he built probably the greatest arms ever! For me it's a toss up between Arnold & Sergio Oliva as owners of the most incredible arm development. If anyone has opinions on any of the videos below or in general regarding Arnold's arms comment below. More footage of Arnold's arms... More... More....
  4. Arnold Schwarzenegger - Made In Britain Bodybuilding fans may not know that Arnold Schwarzenegger actually lived in the UK for a period of time, between 1966 to 1968. The 19 year old Austrian, spoke no English and slept on a sofa at the Muscle Mansion, a gym in Forest Gate, London, run by Wag Bennett (1930 - 2008). Many years earlier, Wag was known to be the first man in England to bench press 500 lbs. Wag's gym was originally situated in the house before he acquired the church hall next door and transformed the church into a world famous gym. The gym was located at 353
  5. Walter Milner was an up in coming Canadian Bodybuilder back in the 1970's / 80's. He was known for his incrediable shoulders, triceps and traps as well as his tremendous strength in the gym. He was a powerbuilder so to speak. In 1983, tragedy struck as Walter who worked as a High Rise Window Cleaner, fell 12 floors to his death. Please note: The High Rise Window Cleaner footage (below) is not Walter Milner. Actual Birth Date of Walter is unknown, but according to art b (ex training partner of Walter's) In 1975 Walter was around 27 years old. That would mean Walter di
  6. I have collected first-hand accounts on how Arnold Schwarzenegger really trained including info on his diet. I'm a massive fan of Arnold, but let’s face it, there’s a ton of bullshit information out there online, in books, in magazines etc which makes it difficult knowing what to believe. 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: Dan Brillantino's response to David C New: For anyone who is not familar with D

  9. 1981 Mr Olympia - The Greatest Booing Contest of All Time By Rick Wayne Edited by: Strength Oldschool * The following is from the book "Muscle Wars" by Rick Wayne. * NOTE by Strength Oldschool: Before proceeding to read this article by Rick Wayne, please watch the video below which graphically shows Franco Columbu at the 1977 World's Strongest Man contest competing in an event where his leg simply snaps! For Franco to be able to compete again, let alone just be able to walk again was simply an amazing feat. Tough as nails was Franco. On to
  10. Danny Padilla - The Road to the 1981 Mr Olympia By David Robson Edited by: Strength Oldschool * This interview is from 1998. To train for the prestigious Mr Olympia bodybuilding competition must surely be one of the most heroic of undertakings; six months of blood, sweat and tears, culminating in a contest-ready physique, poised to take on the worlds best. The Mr. Olympia journey is a remarkable feat, given it is, in addition to the pinnacle of mental and physical sacrifice, an all consuming task, surmountable only by the fittest of the fittest. Professio
  11. 1991 Interview with Bodybuilding Legend Danny Padilla By Greg Zulak Ask your typical seven-year-old boy what he wants to be when he grows up and he'll probably say a fireman, a policeman or a professional wrestler like Hulk Hogan. When Danny Padilla (it is Pa-dill-a, not Pa-dee-a) was seven years old, he told his father, "I'm going to be Mr. America one day." He told his father that because his father wanted to know why Danny was always down in the basement lifting his older brother's weights. Yep! Danny Padilla started his bodybuilding career at age seven, doing basic
  12. 2001 Interview with Sergio Oliva By Brian D. Johnston Edited by: Strength Oldschool * At the time of this interview, Sergio Oliva was 60 years old. BDJ: How did you meet Arthur Jones; what lead to your involvement with him? SO: Jones initially contacted me from Deland, Florida. He wanted me to fly to Daytona Beach to check out what he was doing, and to give an opinion of his machines. So, I flew down and tested them, and I found them to be quite different from other, regular machines. He then asked if I wanted to go through one of his routines while under his s
  13. The Legendary Leroy Colbert Training Philosophy (1977) By Howard Alpert When the definitive history of bodybuilding is written, a significant section will be devoted to a man who 'rewrote' the rules of training and whose physical development still remains as a standard that other bodybuilders try to reach. In an era when a 16-inch arm was considered very good and an 18-inch one was something that trainees dreamed about, the fabulous Leroy Colbert smashed all barriers by developing a 21-inch muscular arm. Only a near-tragic accident (Motorcycle accident in 1955 ) prevented h
  14. Clancy Ross - Oakland Once had the Biggest Shoulders in America By Dave Newhouse | Bay Area News Group Originally published: April 21, 2008 / Source Edited by: Strength Oldschool Clarence Ross, also known as Clancy Ross was a bodybuilder from the United States. Ross was born in Oakland, California on October 26, 1923. He passed away on April 30, 2008. IF YOU HAVEN’T learned by now that Oakland is a city of big shoulders, then you aren’t aware Oaktown once had the biggest shoulders in America. It’s forgotten history, but Oakland was the bodybuilding capital of
  15. A rags-to-riches biopic of visionary Joe Weider, set in the world of fitness. Brothers Joe and Ben Weider were the architects of muscle.

  16. Interview with Bodybuilding Legend Pat Neve By MTI (1980) Edited by: Strength Oldschool Patrick Neve can be reached online on Facebook. Pat Neve, as most followers of the sport know, is a former Mr. USA. He was twice 1975 and 1976 AAU Mr. America class winner - the first bodybuilder to achieve this two years in a row. He’s also been first runner-up in Mr. Universe and Mr. World. Neve was the first man in history weighing 181 pounds to bench press over 450 – his record was 468 1/2 pounds. He gave up powerlifting for bodybuilding and to let old injuries heal. His
  17. How Sergio Oliva and Victor Richards Built Their Physiques Article by Jeff Everson (RIP) written in 1985. Edited by: Strength Oldschool (adding Photos only) I suppose it all started the day Richard Gaspari was declared National Light-Heavyweight Champion. Yes, I remember the eventful day back in New Orleans in 1984, when the young dragon slayer, ripped to the proverbial eyeballs, took home the gold, ushering in the new era of physique definition. Agreed, before Gaspari we had our striation kings. We had bodybuilders who worked as models for Gray’s Anatomy charts ba
  18. Franco Columbu Training Arthur Jones HIT Style using the Nautilus Pullover Machine. In 1970 Arthur invited Arnold and Franco Columbu to visit him in Lake Helen, Florida, right after the 1970 Mr. Olympia. Franco built one of the best Mr Olympia bodies ever with a huge back and split chest. He was a tough character having trained as a competitive boxer in his younger days and could easily handle heavy stressful workouts. In reference to Arthur Jones "HIT" workouts which Franco and Arnold once tried... From T Nation website:

  20. Miss GB Kathleen Winstanley and Arnold Schwarzenegger back in 1968. More photos of Kathleen can be seen within this gallery. Photo was taken outside Kathleen's home in Kitt Green, Prescott Lane. Kath was crowned Miss Great Britain in 1968, at Blackpool. Not sure whom the man on the left is? It is Arnold's friend and is likely to be either Frank Richards or Robert Nailon. Some extra information regarding Kathleen in case anyone knows her but unfortunately her sister Rita passed away back in 2012. I found some information online to go along with this photo and it state

  21. Arnold Schwarzenegger and Robert Nailon. Nailon is a massive part of Arnold's life having been friends with Arnold since the early days. Besides being a bodybuilder himself he is also a professional photographer having taken the best photographs of Arnold the world has ever seen. To purchase Robert Nailon's original photographs of Arnold, click here.

  22. This photograph taken by Robert Nailon, in 1974 at Coogee Gym, Sydney, Australia, is simply incredible. If I remember correctly, I believe the photo was taken by Robert pointing his camera towards a mirror and snapping Arnold's reflected image. Arnold's mass, especially in the arms looked tremendously thick back in 1974. In the words of bodybuilder Ken Waller, Arnold was becoming FREAKY!

  23. Young up and coming bodybuilder, Frank Richards from Wigan, UK. Even at this point, 1967, at the age of 21, Frank had already made a name for himself in the bodybuilding world. He was already friends with Arnold Schwarzenegger. His life though has been up and down. I believe he has battled alcoholism and sustained a number of life threatening injuries. His full time job back in his younger days was working for British Rail. One day he ended up falling on to a rail track and broke his leg and punctured his lung. He took many years to recover from that incident. While in his 40's

  24. World renowned Wrestler, "Superstar" Billy Graham, real name Wayne Coleman, can be seen curling two very heavy Dumbbells, showing off a FANTASTIC set of arms. Born on 7 June, 1943, in Phoenix, Arizona, he eventually grew to a height of 6ft 4, weighing around 275 lbs. Its well documented that back in 1968, he trained along side Dave Draper, Franco Columbu and Arnold Schwarzenegger at Gold's Gym, in Santa Monica. How Strong was Coleman? He was able to bench press 605 lbs, when the current world record was 616 lbs, held by Powerlifting Legend, Pat Casey. In 1980, Coleman bulke
