  • R.I.P. Joe Weider

    Joe Weider has just passed away.

    I think most of us would agree this is one of bodybuilding's biggest loss of all time, if not the biggest.

    Rest in peace Joe, thanks for bringing us the magazines, the Mr. Olympia, Arnold and more.

                A massive influence, don't agree with all he did but that doesn't mean that the overall effect of Mr WEIDER wasn't great.

                I still bench on a Weider set up at home.

                A huge loss that will not be equalled till Arnie himself hits the grave IMO.

                  When I was a kid in the late 70's and into the 80's his 'Muscle and Fitness' was about the only connection I had to hard core bodybuilding, I always liked him for that. I met him at the Mr. O in 1994 I think it was, he just happened to be getting out of his limo and got to talk to him for a couple of minutes. Seemed to be a pleasant fellow, and imo is mostly responsible for making BBing and weightlifting a part of so many lives.

                    Like many pioneers (e.g. Steve Jobs), I may not have liked how they conducted business when I got old enough to understand "the game", but their life's work certainly impacted me. Weider definitely took bodybuilding to another level that's for sure.

                      RIP Joe.

                      Love him or hate him... his influence on the sport cannot be denied.
                      I've won on so many levels already I don't even care how I do at the show. I just wanna look damn good!!

                      Muscles don't know how old they are.

                      Treat them like they are old and eat soup... and they will be.

                      Train 'em hard and feed them like a stud... and they will be.

                      So will you.

                        Hard to envision what BBing would look like today if Joe hadn't been around.
