Remembering Luke Wood.
It is 5 years ago this month that we lost one of Australia's favourite bodybuilders in Luke Wood. He passed away on August 31st, 2011. During the period 2001 to 2007 he was Australia's top pro bodybuilder.
In 2002 we shot a great training video with Luke at Doherty's Gym on the day after he placed 7th in the Australian Grand Prix. Now on Download. There are various links to several other tributes on our Luke Wood DVD page, GMV-488DVD.

|Reconstruction of a Bodybuilder on Digital Download!!
Reconstruction of a Bodybuilder on Digital Download.
Featuring Dave Palumbo, Mat Duvall, Jimmy Pellecia, & Greg Kovacs.
Dave Palumbo's Reconstruction of a Bodybuilder is now available on DVD and Download. This classic video is hilarious and informative. It will change the concept of training films forever!
A clever premise, involving Dave and his training partner Mat Duvall as volunteers in an experiment to create superhuman cyborgs, who have to protect a future legislator from an anti-bodybuilding faction.
Interwoven in the plot is serious hardcore instruction. At Bev Francis' gym in Syosset, Dave and Mat show the basic exercises for working pecs, delts, arms and legs. They are joined by Jim "Iron Bull" Pellechia for a super back workout. Greg Kovacs appears at the end. There are also segments on diet and nutrition.
Dave does not forget the importance of posing. A terrific segment features posing expert John Maglio who puts Dave through the symmetry round, compulsory poses and 60-second routine. To be a successful competitor, this is an essential part of the equation.

|Casey Viator and his GMV "connection" with the Olympic Games!!
Casey Viator and his GMV "connection" with the Olympic Games.
With the Olympic Games taking place in Rio de Janeiro right now, it seemed a good time to mention this story again.
In 1978 I was invited to the Nautilus Facility in Florida by Art Jones, in conjunction with Ell Darden who also worked closely with Art and Casey. The invite was to shoot Casey on film and in photos at the Nautilus TV Studio. Also to do extra photography on the nearby Daytona Beach.
In large part this invite came as an extension of my friendship with Ell Darden. We had attended the 1972 Olympic Games together 6 years earlier. See my report on what we got up to here!
One of my photos of Ell and 2 female athletes from the Games Village appeared on the back cover of Iron Man magazine.
Casey Viator was the youngest ever Mr. America winner and later had a successful professional career, placing 3rd at the 1982 Mr. Olympia in London.
CASEY VIATOR PHOTO GALLERY. PREVIEW CLIP.
CASEY VIATOR on DVD was originally released as a 2 DVD Super Set. Only the Casey Viator Disc #1 is available on Digital Download, now at an Olympic Games special deal price.
When ordered as a 2 DVD Set, Disc #2 is included as a free bonus disc. See GMV-394DVD for the set.
