You hear a lot about Arnold Schwarzenegger or Lou Ferrigno. That both of these gentlemen were the greatest bodybuilder of all times. That they opened the doors in order for NPC to expand & generate the amount of money that they have. Sometimes people forget that there were 3 men that competed for that 75th Mr. Olympia title during the filming of Pumping Iron. And some people forget that Lou actually came in 3rd place. One man who really inspired me to get into fitness, who motivated me, who caught my interest & intrigued the hell out of me. Serge Nubret, to me, he is the Godfather of bodybuilding. Serge Nubret is the only athlete to have won 6 world titles with four different federations. IFBB, NABBA, WBBG, WABBA. In my opinion, the only reason Serge lost the 75th Mr. Olympia during the filming of Pumping Iron is because he was told he could not compete on his arrival and stopped training for 12 days, losing 12 lbs of muscle between then and the day of the contest, when he was informed the night before pre-judging that he was able to compete. He finished second to Arnold Schwarzenegger in the heavyweight class, but still beat Lou Ferrigno.
I want to take this time and THANK Serge Nubret for giving me the vision of surpassing my typical physique. You Godfather have opened many doors & inspired me to be a SAVAGE IN GYM.
