I always enjoy watching your videos Ric great stuff.
So true about today’s bodybuilding, it doesn’t
impress me at all. I’ve always had the mindset of
“old school” bodybuilding. I have been on a good
eating plan myself and I’m working hard at the gym
and it’s paying off. Still have a long way to go but
I see progress.

Hopefully you and some of the
other “Old School’ professionals may somehow be
able to influence todays Professional Bodybuilders to
get them back to what is real instead of all the
artificial, chemically enhanced muscles.

Great interview. Modern pro bodybuilding can't be good
for you. For healthy bodybuilding you probably need to
go back to the 40's and 50's. It was a healthy
lifestyle, they ate a balanced diet with some extra
protein. Compound exercises gave them balance between
your push/pull muscles. Expectations were for a lean
body with an extra 20 or maybe thirty pounds of lean
muscle after 4 or 5 years bodybuilding.

Ric's Corner: Bill Grant - Memorial Day Part 1
Rating (8 votes):
Added: October 5, 2011
Bill was in town for the Muscle Beach Memorial Weekend show, and comes ready to talk old-school with Ric. The incredible growth in popularity of Muscle Beach over the years is due in large part to the efforts of promoter Joe Wheatley. Back in the early days, bodybuilding was considered a cult activity and has now moved much closer to the mainstream. While diets have become more scientific, the basics of eating to change body composition remain the same, only the cardio has increased. Another difference between then and now - guys tended to stay in shape year round, with some fine tuning around show time. Bill has noticed a renaissance of interest in the classic methods amongst his training clients at his New York gym.
