After winning every NABBA title available to him, Brutal Bertil Fox came to the IFBB pro ranks in 1981. Naturally Bertil sent shockwaves through the ranks world wide.

He rivaled Sergio as the all-time king of mass and power. A regular competitor through the 1980's, he could never quite eke out a win in the IFBB. He compete in the Mr Olympia a number of times with placings as high as 5th (1983), 7th (1986) and 8th (1982). Many I times I heard the crowd sceaming "Beef, Beef" or "Beef it Bertil, Beef" at the prejudging. He was a true cult figure at the time, hitting most muscular after most muscular poses for his adoring fans.

Without question the size, shape and power of BERTIL FOX's arms with the ability to do chins with over 200 lbs. strapped to his waist, curls with nearly 300 lbs, and slow concentration curls with 100 lbs. dumbbells show just how powerful his arms were. His triceps strength was legendary. His favorite triceps routine was as follows:

EXERCISE                              SETS        REPS

Lying triceps extensions            5              6-8
Bench dips                                 5              6-8
One-arm dumbbell triceps         5              6-8
extensions  
Cable pushdowns                      5              8-10
One-arm pushdowns                 5              8-10
