    Post here if you got good motivational pictures that can be printed. I need some to post on the walls at my home gym. Pictures of Benedikt Magnusson doing his crazy pre-lift boost would be especially awesome.

    good lord that Paul Anderson guy is ridiculous. Wasn't he all natural way back then? a 440 overhead press with no leg drive is insane for any time period.

    I don't think people were using steroids in the 1950s, could be wrong. I think they were more popular in the 70s especially in the soviet union but im not 100% sure

    eek just wikipedia'd

    The development of modern pharmaceutical anabolic steroids can be traced back to 1931 when Adolf Butenandt, a chemist in Marburg, obtained 15 milligrams of the male hormone androstenone from tens of thousands of liters of urine. This hormone was synthesized in 1934 by Leopold Ruzicka, a chemist in Zurich. It was already known that the testes contained a more powerful androgen than androstenone, and three groups of scientists, funded by competing pharmaceutical companies in The Netherlands, Germany, and Switzerland, raced to isolate it.[3][4]

    Clinical trials on humans, involving either oral doses of methyl testosterone or injections of testosterone propionate, began as early as 1937.[3] Testosterone propionate is mentioned in a letter to the editor of Strength and Health magazine in 1938; this is the earliest known reference to an anabolic steroid in a U.S. weightlifting or bodybuilding magazine.
    During the Second World War, German scientists synthesized other anabolic steroids, and experimented on concentration camp inmates and prisoners of war in an attempt to treat chronic wasting.[3] They also experimented on German soldiers, hoping to increase their aggression. Adolf Hitler himself, according to his physician, was injected with testosterone derivatives to treat various ailments.[5] The development of muscle-building properties of testosterone was pursued in the 1940s, in the Soviet Union and in Eastern Bloc countries such as East Germany, where steroid programs were used to enhance the performance of Olympic and amateur weight lifters.[6] In the West, scientific interest in steroids was rekindled in the 1950s and, in 1958, after promising trials had been conducted in other countries, Dianabol (a trademark name for methandrostenolone) was approved for use in the U.S. by the Food and Drug Administration.

    As I enter, heavy metal music blasts into my ears. In the distance, someone is screaming… “One more fucking rep.” From another corner I hear, “Add another plate you pussy… That ain’t good enough.” Elsewhere a loud crash and a cloud of chalk, as a loaded deadlift bar hits the floor. This, a result of a missed attempt at a personal best lift. Some little pencil neck shoots by, ears covered, eyes bugged out of his head, looking for the nearest escape. He doesn’t belong here anyway. Where am I? Home… At least for the next couple of hours.

    just one? that will make the bar unbalanced. he should add two. or it should say "add another plate to each side and make sure they face the same direction or it will unbalance the load and cause me to fail."
