"Iron Mike" Tyson was the undisputed heavyweight champion and youngest man to ever win the WBC, WBA, and IBF world heavyweight titles at just a 20 year old kid. His raw power and ability to knockout even the toughest of guys made his opponents look like they all had glass jaws. "Kid Dynamite" won his first 19 professional bouts by knockout, 12 in the first round, and is often considered to be one of the greatest. Below is a sample of his workout he did in his prime which was performed 7 days a week:

She had the greatest mainstream presence of any female bodybuilder in the sport's early years. She also might've been the most influential bodybuilder as far as getting women of her generation, who grew up when girls/young women often were discouraged from athletic activity by cultural mores or lack of opportunity, to compete in contests or just join a gym to build muscle tone.

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)"

Chet Yorton experimented for a while with diferent weight lifting routines until he settle with the one he used for the rest of his career. He used a push-pull routine. Mondays he trained chest, shoulders and triceps. Tuesdays he trained back, biceps and legs. Then next day he would take it off and then repeat the routine. All exercises are 4 exercises per body part for 5 sets and 8-10 reps except chest. For chest he would use 300lbs for 100 reps total. So he would do sets until he reached 100 reps and then do 1 rep with 405.  Full workout below:

At Rippeder.com our focus is on classic physiques from the 50's, 60's, 70's and 80's but the Mr. Olympia is the pinnacle of all bodybuilding competition and so we look on with support to our fellow bodybuilders. This years' Mr. Olympia featured some great bodybuilders. In the end it was between the best two modern physiques of Kai Green and Phil Heath. The 2013 Mr. Olympia should be interesting with Jay Cutler back in the mix.
