1. And... we're back. You'll notice that all of your images are back as well, as are our beloved emoticons, including the infamous :foo: We have also worked with our server folks and developers to fix the issues that were slowing down the site.

    There is still work to be done - the images in existing sigs are not yet linked, for example, and we are working on a way to get the images to load faster - which will improve the performance of the site, especially on the pages with a ton of images, and we will continue to work diligently on that and keep you updated.

    Cheers,

    Coach at my gym recently told me to check this out... I definitely will never be 70s Big, but this pic rocks it:

    The early 20th century was the golden age of strongmen and strength feats. It pretty much died out by WWII.

    This isn't really about strongmen, it is more about an old aesthetic about getting really big and really strong without worrying about being a pretty boy.

    What do you mean by pretty boy? The guy in the tank looks great, but if cut he'd look just like any contemporary bodybuilder.


    I do notice that even competitive bodybuilders in the 60's and 70's (including Arnold and especially Franco) didn't do alot of the stuff that contemporary bodybuilders do - on stage, 70s BBs still kept their armpit, forearm, and leg hair, their bikinis were not as skimpy, and of course the tanning was not the same.

    Most (average) people who lift do so for aesthetic reasons, rather than strength.

    Yeah but think about how bad you'd look in your extra tapered Nude Flim Flams. No steez at all.

    I used to see dudes like that walking around the Castro, no joke theres some big ass dudes there. Except for the dude in the middle this physique is pretty bad for clothes IMO.

    Doug Young on the right^^

    This website is rather awesome... their food FAQ should be given to every joker on the Internet who claims he cant gain weight.

    Frank Zane was from this time period. Pretty much one of the all time greats

    70's were a good time for the sport

    I'm friends with and have been trained by one of the dudes who started the website. He's an absolute freak show when it comes to natural strength.

    All he does is eat, drink milk, and squat/press/deadlift/bench. No supplements. Here's a pic from his powerlifting meet this past weekend.

    He's the type of guy supplement companies don't want you to know about. Everything he accomplishes is from food and training and that's it.

    AC's videos on that site are ridiculous. Someone that young and lightweight has no business being so strong. At 20 years old and like 200 lbs, overhead pressing 220+ and squatting 500+ for sets across^^
