I was 12 years old when my Father finally gave in, and purchased me a set of barbells - sand-filled numbers, with 2 dumbells to go with them...I remember it as though it were yesterday.

The inspiration came from seeing Steve Reeves in the movie "Hercules Unchained". I recall being very interested in the Charles Atlas ads in the back of comic books too.
Are you old enough to remember this?

I also remember being blown away by a photo of Larry Scott on the cover of "Iron Man" magazine.

...good memories.

JB:p

I didn't get interested in bb'ing until later in life. I saw Frank Zane and Mike Mentzer as commentators on TV for a bb'ing show in Cali.

I was very impressed with Frank and followed his career - truly the "Giant Killer." Unfortunately, these days, you need to be a "Monster Killer!" :)

Frank Zane worked out in my grandfather's little gym a few times with him so naturally he was my first favorite or first BB I ever even knew about for that matter.

Now days my favorite is Lee Priest. He isnt the biggest guy but his physique is incerdible and he has a small waist without the 'steroid belly" that most of the pros have now.

Growing up and seeing movies and what not I never thought much about body building in it's self. I looked at sports figures more often than not. But when I was in my teens I became more interested in BB and would have to say that Victor Richards was the shit. I also liked the German, Roman (pronounced, but not spelled) Sherlock. And you have to also enjoy a young Shawn Ray

Gatta join the group and say Arnold. Noone will ever be 'the man' the way he was. Watch Pumping Iron if you dont know what I mean. With all his fame and fortune-he still gives his all to the sport-someone who does not forget his roots and beginnings; as evidenced by the spectacular Arnold Classic. In fact the 2 men I admire most are Hugh Hefner, and Arnold. :D

All of you guys are making me feel bad for not saying Arnold :(

Of course Arnold is one of my favorites. The question was who was your "FIRST" favorite.

Arnold of course. I remember watching Terminator and being scared to death of him.

I think it's safe to say that everyone grew up at differnt times, and there were different people in the spot light during those times!, for me personally it was "Dennis Newman" the kid had it all!!
