He made his mark in the pre "Pumping Iron" days, an era that started it all and was popularized by fellow legends such as Frank Zane, Larry Scott and of course Arnold himself. Bill Grant has been an innovator right from the beginning of his career. He was the first bodybuilder to introduce special effects in his posing routine such as strobe lighting, fog, colored lights and upbeat music as he felt bodybuilding was not only a sport but should be entertaining as well.
