What has happened to the sport of bodybuilding? I recently started working out again after about a 10 year break and I've made an effort to catch up on the bodybuilding scene. What I'm seeing from this new era of bodybuilding is discouraging. It seems like to achieve those physiques large amounts of combined drugs are needed. I was almost turned off from continuing my training. Luckily I still had the movie Pumping Iron lying around. Well needless to say it motivated the hell out of me.

Those physiques of Arnold, Serge, Franco, Ed, Mike, Ken and of course Lou were huge but proportioned and seemed healthier. It's seems that bodybuilding has lost its way. The judges should discourage the unhealthy growth gut look by strictly sticking to selecting winner by muscle mass, definition, proportion, symmetry and stage presence of that of the 1960's, 70's and early 80's. Now I'm not saying the physiques should be just like the one of bodybuilders of the1960's, 70's and 80's but its just way too extreme and unhealthy right now and it needs in my opinion to shift to a more modern classic look. As a bodybuilding fan it's just discouraging because to emulate the new bodybuilder wouldn't just mean to commit to weight lifting and dieting but also anabolic steroids, growth hormone, insulin, diuretics, HCG, clenbuterol, ephedrine and probably even more stuff. So many things could go wrong and cost some there life.

On this website I'll focus on topics such as training to achieve the classic look, nutrition, the golden era of bodybuilding from Steve Reeves to Arnold Schwarzenegger, anabolic steroids and more. I hope the momentum shifts and bodybuilding regains its glory as the epitome of health, fitness, and great physiques.
