The Best Physical Culturists of the 1970's

Post by Harry Hayfield » Sun Jun 30, 2019 10:26 am

Overview
The 1970's was the decade when muscle ruled the world. It was the decade that saw "Arnie" reached international levels of fame as he won the Mr. Olympia contest seven times, Lou Ferringo was cast as "The Incredible Hulk" television show that launched in 1977, and even Dave Prowse (who was more known for being a weightlifter in the 1960's) reached levels of fame unheard of when he was cast as both "The Green Cross Code Man" in 1975 and the body of Darth Vader in the Star Wars movies (although the character was voiced by someone else). This was also the decade when the ladies stood up and demanded to be counted with Nadia Comaneci of Romania becoming the first person ever to score a perfect 10 for an Olympic gymnastics routine and the formation of the National Women's Physique Championship which has its first title awarded in 1978
