Feb 19, 2019

Bodybuilding Legend Robby Robinson is joined by his good friend and training partner Rick Valente to talk about his extensive and historic bodybuilding career for the Bodybuilding Legends Podcast. Robby talks about when he started bodybuilding in Tallahassee, Florida and achieving his big breakthrough win at the 1975 IFBB Mr. America contest. Robby also remembers what is was like training at Gold's Gym in Venice, California in 1975 alongside Arnold Schwarzenegger, Franco Columbu, Ken Waller and Frank Zane, competing in his first Mr. Olympia contest in 1977, winning the first ever Night of the Champions contest in 1978, competing against Sergio Oliva in 1981 and making his comeback in the IFBB against the new crop of young bodybuilders when he was in 40's. Finally, Robby talks about beating Lou Ferrigno at the first Masters Mr. Olympia contest in 1994 and what his current training and diet program are like at 72 years old. At the conclusion of the podcast, John Hansen reads an article from the November, 1976 issue of Muscle Builder/Power magazine titled "How to Look Your Muscular Best at Contest Time" by Arnold Schwarzenegger as told to Rick Wayne. The article is written from Arnold's perspective on what it takes to actually win a bodybuilding contest.
