Default 1981 Olympia

I was talking to an old guy in the gym after my session yesterday. I have seen him there a lot, he is 80 if he is a day and he always gives people advice etc etc whilst they are there.

Some big guy asked me why i was going from shoulders to back to chest and i told him i was doing a fullbody and he answered with the usual mantra of, 'you need to do a split to build muscle' etc etc, but the old guy told me not to listen to everything I hear and that fullbodys CAN build muscle.

We got chatting and it turns out he was Doug Evans, one of the judges at the 1981 Olympia, i told him i thought that Platz should have won (or perhaps Padilla) and he agreed, but apparently they (the judges) were told who the organisers would like to win lol and kind of pushed in the direction. he told me a few stories of corruption in the bodybuilding world and some stories of having lunch with Arnold, meeting Reg Park (in his opinion the greatest of all time) etc etc...

he also told me that all the 'boys' he knew of had started with fullbody routines and thats how they got big when they were natural, its only the advances of 'all the drugs' he said that makes people get bigger on splits.

Just a really interesting guy, and it was nice to have some kind of confirmation that you CAN get big on fullbody, and that this site IS pointing people in the right direction, no matter what Weider would have you believe.

If there is anything you want to ask him Steve, let me know, he is always only too happy to talk. Im sure if you do come over here next year though, he would be more than happy to chat to you

The other thing he told me was that you have to eat... apparently at lunch/dinner with Arnold, Arnold was surprised even by how much Doug ate lol, he called him 'The little man from Wales who eats too much'... classic !!!

I would be interested in doing an interview regarding fullbody work...what he used, what they used...just any insider info he could give us. Heck, if you want to ask you could do it.

I am mostly interested in learning the ins and outs of how they trained, and what their dogma and beliefs were. Little tips and tricks they use, that sort of thing.
