Re: Basic routine for the over 40's

Although i plug strands and even use them, i agree with Ray, for faster results in both strength and endurance stick with those various weighted dumbells you have ,and as Ray says 4 times as week is plenty to give muscle chance to grow and recuperate. I would write back to Ray and get him to set you...

Re: British General Elections 1950 - 2017

Re: Manfred Hoerberl killed.?

Its sad to read about Manfred, he was a hugely likable guy, yes had massive arms,but also a great sense of humour, also very strong. it just proves as Peter will support that having big muscles is no means of self defence and that the average bodybuilder should as in the old days, learn at least som...

Re: UK Beef Magazine

Harry, i would suggest they would only be interested in "new faces sort of item" or current contests, winners or bodybuilders. Re old timer items, we on the site like to think we cover all historic events and personalities. Please mention our site if you do write, its always good to keep up with tod...

Re: rare photos of 1953 nabba universe

Dear Ray, just written one letter for it to get lost due to wonky computer, anyway, have scanned and sent to di to put on the forum the official reports and placings of the show, you will see our friend is not mentioned once except for a brief "also ran" list as Tom Connery alias Tam alias Sean. i s...

Re: rare photos of 1953 nabba universe

Ray is correct, the "Mr Scotland" title was pure fiction, made up, just to get him into the contest.Those years were probably my peak years as far as going to shows and reading mags are concerned and although i have kept it going for at least another 60 years, my memory still holds, although not wit...

Re: rare photos of 1953 nabba universe

This sort of stuff really pi**es me off. Too long has our Sean let the myth continue, I was there, Bill Pearl won as said. Third place in amatuer was Peter Farrer. This junk was printed years ago in the Mail. I contacted the editor and sent him a copy of the official results and names of all those w...

Re: Has Anyone Heard of This Impressive-Looking Guy?

Great photo, looks to me he would have been a good wrestler,those arms are amazing especially his forearms. Re the going up the stairs, cant remember off hand, but one old timer, in a circus, used to climb a ladder with a small horse over his shoulder. Back in the day when i had to work for a living...
