Rating (3 votes):
Added: November 30, 2011
Ric takes a step back in time even further into the history of bodybuilding, all the way back to origins in the 30's and 40's. Names like Steve Reeves, Reg Park, Reg Lewis, Steve Reeves and even Sean Connery were ubiquitous in the day.

The bodies were built the old fashioned way, with strong work ethics and basic, high quality diets.
