Brings back memories. I grew up in Union City about6
blocks from Weider's office and warehouse and pestered
Leroy every week for advice when I was 15. He always
came out of the warehouse to spend time with me.

Leroy is right. Roids and HGH have caused most folks
including most natural bodybuilders to lose interest in
pro bodybuilding. Now those guys are getting so big
that their natural insulin production is not enough to
feed all that muscle, so they take insulin injections
to get even bigger.

I can relate to Steve
Reeves or a young Reg Park. Now that's do-able with our
current improved knowledge in diet and

Hats off to Leroy for continuing to
body build after injury and after competition.

Ric's Corner: Leroy Colbert Part 1
Rating (3 votes):
Added: April 5, 2011
No one secures interviews with eccentric old-school characters like Ric, and this week's guest is a treat. Vintage cover model, bodybuilder, and long time nutrition store owner Leroy Colbert was a ground-breaking African American athlete. A promising career was unexpectedly cut short with a life altering accident in the late '50s. Like previous guests before him, Leroy covers the basics of now and then: how drugs have changed the sport, the level of knowledge in nutrition, and the homogeneity of modern physiques compared to the old days where you could tell a man from his silhouette.
