This is just a guess...

The term physical culturist would include strength training, conditioning, bodybuilding, gymnatics, healthy eating, stretching, and positive thinking. The guys back then wanted to be well-rounded in every aspect of the physical and mental well-being.

I'm betting when bodybuilding and muscle mass became more important (Thank you Weider - lol) that the term lost favor.

But that's just a guess.
