February 17, 2014. Today is my 46th Birthday. I still feel like I’m 23 years old, yet when I look in the mirror I see a much older version of myself. When I raise up my arms, I feel severe shoulder pain; when I take a step to walk, my right quad is stiff and painful. This might depress some people. But I ascribe to Andre Maurois’ outlook on aging: “Growing old is no more than a bad habit which a busy person has no time to form.”
Bodybuilding: The Evolving Approach
In almost every profession, we look to the latest research and technology to help guide us to more efficient and productive outcomes. However, if that same research and technology were to be misinterpreted or applied incorrectly it would be wasted.
Women Who Fear They Will End Up Looking Like Men After They Start Lifting Weights
This subject has become quite viral lately, but I have had it in the back of my mind for a long time. This is my perspective on it all.
I don’t know how many times I’ve heard these different excuses when women talk about starting training in a gym:
They realize that nothing great comes without a great deal of hard work. I’m honored to be a part of a distinguished team that creates iconic products and employs passionate people with the same competitive warrior spirit that I’ve lived by.”
At nine years of age, Julien Greaux decided he wanted to be an action movie star. He was born in Brittany, France, and raised in St. Barth, a small island in the French West Indies not known for lights, cameras, or much action. Fortunately, Julien had a warrior spirit. He began studying martial arts and chiseling his body with weights. Julien practiced judo, Thai boxing and Shotokan karate for over twenty-five years.

The Working Horse Principle

Let’s look back at the 2013 IFBB New York Pro as the competitors are starting to fill up on stage at the Tribeca Performing Arts Center. There is excitement in the audience already, but some will experience something really unexpected this evening.
Good Health or Good Bodybuilding?
“I predict that bodybuilding will become the chief form of systematic exercise and physical activity, and that it will come to be looked upon as one of the greatest forces in the field of preventative medicine.” — Joe Weider, 1950
When Joe Weider famously wrote those words over six decades ago the United States economic engine was running full speed ahead as a result of the boost it received from World War II, the general health of the American public was a relative non-issue, and the outside world’s view of the bodybuilder was one of respect and admiration as they saw men who were the personification of what dedication to training, nutrition, and hard work could achieve.
