About the Author

Steve's body transformation was legendary. He went from being a very strong 285 lbs. power lifter to a 200 lbs. IFBB Mr. World.
At 285 lbs. Steve was not your typical fat boy, sure he was smooth but he had size and he built his body at that time for strength and power. Once he decided that he wanted to be a successful competitive bodybuilder the transformation began. This transformation was consistent with all endeavors in Steve's life. He performed an honest assessment on his nutrition, diet, supplementation and training. He then sought out the best and put a plan together to reach his new goal, Mr. World.
Just look at the results, Steve is arguably one of the most muscular and symmetrical bodybuilders of any generation. Admittedly Steve is not one of the mass monsters, and there are reasons for this. Steve always strived to maintain muscularity, vascularity and symmetry, and was not willing to sacrifice these for size. Also, from a genetic standpoint, Steve was not wired to be the 6' 250 lbs. bodybuilder. But, he was wired to be the 6' 200 lbs. bodybuilder with great lines, symmetry and muscularity. Clearly, Steve built his body to his genetic potential.
Vince Gironda played a critical role in assisting Steve to put his plan together. Steve trained with Vince for 3 decades. Steve also worked very closely with nutrition guru Rheo H. Blair.
Competitor: Steve has competed at the highest level from 1968 until 2002. Here is a sampling of his contests: 2 Mr. Olympia's (1979, 1981); 3 Masters Olympia (1997, 1999, 2002); 2 IFBB Mr. America's (1975, 1977); 10 IFBB Pro circuit contests (including Canada Pro Cup, Grand Prix World Cup, Grand Prix California, etc.); NABBA Mr. Universe (1977); IFBB Mr. World (1977) and others.
Today: You will still find Steve today training at 5 AM. The gym and the training has been the foundation of his physical being since he was 14, when he first saw Steve Reeves on the movie screen and decided that is what he wanted to look like. That was almost 45 years ago and he is still pursuing that quest.
Steve remains a mentor and role model to many throughout the world, and not just among the bodybuilding community. At the gym where Steve trains many experienced trainers and trainees continue to seek his advice on all aspects of training, diet, nutrition and supplementation. He continues to spend as much time answering questions from many who view him as a mentor and role model. After all these years walking the walk continues.
