The wrestling legend Bruno Sammartino was born on October 6, 1935 in Italy. He came to United States of America in 1950. Due to the hardships he endured in Italy because of German occupation when he came to the USA he was very thin and spoke very little English. Due to this he was bullied in school which drove him to weightlifting to build his body up. He took up power lifting and Olympic lifts as his workouts to build himself up. His story resonates with many of us who dealt with or deal with being skinny, thin or out of shape and have to deal with being bullied.

Back in the golden era of bodybuilding one of the greatest physiques to grace a bodybuilding stage was that of Steve Reeves. In those times there were barely any supplements. So a protein shake meant making it from scratch. Steve Reeve's Power Drink is unique because of its makeup.
"(Prepared in blender)
14 ounces of freshly squeezed orange juice
1 tablespoon of Knox gelatin
1 tablespoon of honey
1 banana
2-4 raw eggs (today, pasteurized eggs might be safer)
2 tablespoons of High-Protein Powder (I make my own)"
