The Jeff King Seminar plus Posing now also on Digital Download.
Jeff King was the 1983 AAU Mr America and 1983 NABBA Amateur Mr Universe winner. At the time he was probably the best amateur bodybuilder in the world.
The Jeff King leg development was unbelievable and way ahead of its time. Jeff was a great authority on bodybuilding and you will hear about diet and training. Jeff held nothing back and he surprised his seminar audience with some very interesting and somewhat controversial points of view.
There is no doubt that Jeff King was an unsung LEGEND, and one of the greats of bodybuilding.

Al Beckles - The Living Legend: Seminar & Posing now on Digital Download.
This remarkable athlete has competed in more than 100 contests throughout his career. This video presents 35 minutes of highlights from the seminar given in Adelaide, South Australia, during which Albert answers questions on exercise, contest preparation, diet, supplements and training.
The seminar was taped just a few days after he competed in the 1985 Mr. Olympia, where he achieved his all time high placing of second to Lee Haney.
The great Albert Beckle thens treats the audience to 5 minutes of posing – and at the age of 55 years he was in superb condition.
The scene then moves forward four years to the 1989 FIBO Bodybuilding Expo held in Cologne, Germany, where Al is interviewed - together with fellow IFBB professionals, PHIL HILL and then RON LOVE. Phil points out that Beckles has been competing for an incredible 30 years in the sport of bodybuilding and that’s one of the reasons he is a legend in his own right.
Finally SAMIR BANNOUT poses for the excited FIBO audience, and Al joins him for an informal extended posing sequence. As both men were competing on the European Grand Prix circuit at the time, they were both ripped and in awesome shape.

GMV Muscle Video Magazine #1 opens with a look at the light heavyweight line-up of the 1980 AAU Mr. America Show, held in the beautiful Santa Monica Civic Auditorium in California on September 6th.
The period covered is mostly late 70s, and is from 1977 to 1983. It includes the historic Gold's Gym Mr. America Parade and contest of 1977. From the Golden Years of bodybuilding, I wrote at the time..."This is probably the greatest collection of physique stars I have ever presented on a single video".

|1992 EFBB British Championships: The Show Finals now on Digital Download!!
1992 EFBB British Championships: The Show Finals now on Digital Download.
On 11th October, 1992 the Wembley Conference Centre was the historic venue for the annual EFBB British Championships. This was the place where I shot many NABBA Universe shows and also the 1982 Mr. Olympia. In the evening Finals you will see all 48 men posing in 4 different weight classes. Shot with 2 cameras we include posedowns, temper tantrums and all of the awards.
The OVERALL MEN'S Posedown was between the 4 fantastic class winners in DAWODU, WALL, PHIPPS and ATKINSON with J.D. DAWODU triumphant. However things did not run smoothly in the Men's Heavyweight Class with 4th placed Mick Theo storming off stage refusing to accept his trophy. He then came back on stage, grabbed the 1st place trophy and hurled it onto the floor. I understand he was later suspended for 2 years.
When JD was announced the overall winner, his friends and well-wishers stormed on stage and completely swamped him, lifting him up in the air, singing and dancing. Scenes I have never ever witnessed before!
In the Women's Overall Posedown it was a very clear-cut victory for Kimberley-Anne JONES over Lorna Thompson and Sandra Berry.
See the posing displays from 3 fantastic GUEST STARS:
KEVIN LEVRONE (He was 2nd at the Olympia a few weeks before.)
