Memories... watching Maciste battle the Hydra, circa
1962. I was then 15 years old and had been lifting
weights for a year.

Ric's Corner: Reg Lewis & The Silver Era Part 1
Rating (2 votes):
Added: January 31, 2012
Ric's lined up another living legend and highly influential figure in the history of bodybuilding, all the way back from the "Silver Era", the 50's and 60's. Reg Lewis was focused only his baseball career as a teenager, and bodybuilding was simply a means to an end. On a spur of the moment suggestion, he won his first show in 1954 and quickly began establishing himself in the scene, even befriending icon Steve Reeves. From there, things accelerated as Reg was drawn naturally into the world of entertainment, eventually landing magazine covers, working in Mae West films alongside other greats, and acting in his most well known role as Hercules. An early advocate of the home gym, Reg had everything he needed to build at that time a world-beating physique. This was only after getting some pointers about intensity from timeless guru Jack LaLanne. Some may not know that he was also one of the first bodybuilders to compete naturally and win at the national level as drugs became popular in the early 60's.
