Also on Digital Download. 

This DVD shows 35 minutes of highlights of a seminar given in Adelaide, South Australia, during which Albert answers questions on exercise, contest preparation, diet, supplements and training.

1985 Mr. Olympia (Historic DVD)



The seminar was taped just a few days after he competed in the 1985 Mr. Olympia, where he achieved his all time high of second place to Lee Haney.
 


The scene then moves forward four years to the 1989 FIBO Bodybuilding Expo held in Cologne, Germany, where Al is interviewed together with fellow professionals, PHIL HILL and then RON LOVE. They talk about Al’s career, and some of its highlights. 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. Samir was the 1983 Mr. Olympia winner.

Not to be missed are the close-ups on Al’s genetic gift of the best split-peak biceps in the business. Cover photos by Wayne Gallasch, copyright Wayne & GMV Productions.
