The Golden Era of bodybuilding took place in southern California and roughly covered the 1960s to the 1980s. This was when Arnold Schwarzenegger, Frank Zane, Samir Bannout, Steve Reeves, Serge Nubret and other icons of the sport introduced the world to their superhero-esque physiques with classical muscular proportions. Then things took a wrong turn.
Mass at all costs
As the 1980s gave way to the 1990s, classical proportions were replaced by sheer bulk. It became an era of “mass at all costs”, including bodybuilders’ health and fitness. They looked increasingly disproportionate, bloated and even sickly. The nutritional supplements marketed to them followed suit.
A group of us witnessed what was happening and decided to do something about it. The mission: Bring back the classic physique with supplements that make sense.
