In the golden era of bodybuilding before steroids entered the scene workouts consisted of full body workouts 3 times a week. This type of workout gave enough time to recover between workouts. If you're natural you need this time for your muscles and nervous system to recover properly. So why did training frequency change in the mid 50's and onward? Anabolic steroid use began which allowed for quicker recovery between workouts and greater gains.

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)"
