For the longest time, I’ve been a big fan of the old-school bodybuilders… the bodybuilders of the Golden Era from the 50s, 60s, and 70s. These guys had bodies that resembled Greek Gods! And many achieved all of this without drugs or new hyped up supplements!
These guys had physiques that women just absolutely LOVED. It’s true! But show a woman a cover of a muscle mag from today’s bodybuilders… and they’ll probably turn their heads in disgust at these guys physiques.
And who can blame them…the humongous drug bloated waists of today’s pro bodybuilders explains why even young men of today’s generation are inspired by the men of this past generation.
I mean, who wouldn’t want a lean, muscular physique like these old-time bodybuilders had?
Even though these guys are from before my time, I feel that I have lot more in common with them than I do the pro bodybuilders of today.
That’s probably why I’m such a huge fan and student of the late great Vince Gironda also known as the Iron Guru. Vince was years ahead of his time and lived to challenge the status-quo, introducing revolutionary training techniques that were shunned by the so-called experts of the time.
Years later, study after study shows that Vince was right and the experts were wrong.
He was a physique trainer of world-class champion bodybuilders and some of Hollywood’s biggest celebrities. He lived and breathed bodybuilding for 55 years, developing some of the most controversial and effective muscle-building techniques ever discovered.
In a few moments I’ll tell you how you can get your hands on a very rare manual that has been called the most comprehensive writing ever assembled sharing Vince’s methods and principles. But first you’ll need to listen closely because I’m about to share four of my favorite Gironda principles that will help you pack on ripped muscle as fast as humanly possible.
Vince was perhaps the first person to speak up against performing the regular sit-up and leg lift for the abs. He felt that they were useless and could even harm the spine, lower back and hips.
And speaking of abs, Vince believed that most guys wasted far too much time training their abs. According to him, spending too much time training the abs shocked the central nervous system, disrupting muscle growth in other areas of the body. He stated that high reps and daily training produced a smooth, bloated look.
Vince did have several different movements for the abdominals that were and still are very productive.
If you believe the media hype and are just eating egg whites, you’re missing out on huge gain potential by depriving your muscles of valuable growth driving nutrients found only in the egg yolk. Vince was the first one to recognize the ‘cholesterol myth’ of whole eggs.
Scientific studies have shown that only a small amount of cholesterol actually makes its way into the bloodstream and that the body compensates for this by producing less cholesterol of its own. Vince believed that bodybuilders should eat up to 36 raw, fertilized eggs every day. He said that the effects of this were equivalent to taking the steroid Dianabol.
The sad truth is that all of the top bodybuilding media outlets and magazines are owned by nutritional supplement companies interested in one thing and one thing only–selling more product. Their primary purpose is not to help you build a better body but to persuade you to buy supplements that don’t work.
If they told the truth and gave you information about what really works to build lean, solid muscle mass, you’d realize that supplements don’t build muscles or make you lean. If you’re getting your muscle-building information from a magazine you’re in big trouble and not getting the results you want.
And if you’re getting your advice from the bodybuilding forums, you’re screwed too because most of the guys posting there are either 15-year-old boys or guys who are just spouting the same brainwashed crap they learned in the bodybuilding magazines.
Believing that drugs are shortcut to a muscular physique is the worst thing you can do. Performance-enhancing drugs are dangerous and even deadly–AND they don’t provide the results you want. Vince knew that a well-nourished body can manufacture all the hormones it needs to build lean, rock-hard muscle, burn fat and lead a vital, active life–whether you’re in 40s, 50s, 60s, 70s, 80s or 90s!
Vince was dead set against synthetic hormones of any kind and was an outspoken critic of their use. He realized that when bodybuilders take synthetic hormones, their own hormone production ceases.
Their testicles shrivel up to nothing, and a lot of men have to take synthetic hormones for the rest of their lives because of it. So don’t mess around with andro and all that garbage. If you do, the only thing you’re doing is helping someone else make a lot of money.
Vince was a fierce advocate of natural bodybuilding and his results speak for themselves. Celebrities and bodybuilders flocked to him because they knew that his all-natural approach could build jaw-dropping muscular physiques like no other.
Luckily, you don’t need drugs to build the lean, muscular, Adonis-like body you want by following in the footsteps of Vince Gironda, one of the greatest physique trainers ever known.
A good friend of mine and Bodybuilder named Alan Palmieri had the good fortune to start lifting weights back in the 60s during the Golden Age of Bodybuilding.
During that time, he got to know a lot of the greats who were just starting out–including Vince Gironda. Alan and Vince developed a professional relationship, regularly talking on the phone and exchanging letters.
With his new book, Vince Gironda: Legend and Myth, Alan shares those conversations with the world and by doing so he provides the rest of us with the opportunity to gain insight into Vince–the man, the legend and his proven ideas about physique building.
Vince had a reputation not just for being one of the most effective and influential trainers to ever step inside a gym, but also for being one of the most hard-headed, outspoken and ‘in-your-face’ figures in bodybuilding.
There was only one way to train–his way. If you disagreed with him or didn’t do what he expected, that was the end of your relationship with Vince.
One “But Vince” was all it took to get thrown out of his gym. Vince firmly believed in his training philosophies and nobody was going to tell him any different. And the truth is, his results speak for themselves.
Vince knew really worked to build bigger, more powerful muscles and he wasn’t going to ‘water it down’ or compromise his approach for anyone. If a guy didn’t follow Vince’s directions exactly, then he was gone.
His innovative and pioneering ways generated a firestorm of controversy and made him one of the most polarizing figures in bodybuilding. For example, Vince was one of the very first experts to understand that doing endless sit-ups and leg raises does nothing to eliminate fat around the middle. Everyone who trained in his gym knew how he felt about that and if he caught a guy doing them, they guy would get thrown out.
When every other fitness expert started touting low-fat and reduced-calorie foods, Vince’s guys were eating steak, raw eggs and cream. He called this the ‘Stone Age Diet’ because it was based on whole, unprocessed foods like what our ancestors ate for tens of thousands of years.
Vince didn’t subscribe to any of the ‘sissy boy’ ideas about eating fat-free and reduced-calorie foods–his guys ate like MEN and they developed bigger, more powerful, muscular physiques than everyone else too.
Few other trainers were as polarizing and controversial as Vince. He loved to challenge the status quo and he didn’t care whether or not people liked him. Physique training was his passion and he knew that his revolutionary training ideas built better bodies.
Here are just a few of Vince’s controversy-generating ideas:
