Were Workouts Different Before Steroids?

Vince's Gym

During the 1960s Vince Gironda laid claim to having more top physique stars in training than any other west coast gym.

As a matter of fact, we had a first string and their photos lined the left wall of the gym. The second string had their photos on the right wall of the gym.

At this time Vince’ s Gym entrants dominated local physique contests. The training procedure was as follows.

Train one hour and retire to the Steak House across the street from the gym.

Have meat and relax and back to the gym for another hour training session and repeat this procedure for three one hour workouts.
