Nasser El Sonbaty: Nasser on the Way - Part 1 now on Download.
Nasser had an amazing career from 1990 to 2005. His career was at its peak from 1993 to 2000, making him one of the most popular pros on the circuit. This not-to-be-missed video takes you inside the unique world of Nasser El Sonbaty as he prepares for the 1999 Mr. Olympia contest.
Brutal training sessions and heavy weights, along with sweat and the pain. That is a normal workout. Nasser won a number of GPs and had seconds and thirds at the Olympia.

|Paul Grant and the 1971 NABBA Mr. Universe!!
Paul Grant and the 1971 NABBA Mr. Universe.
After the huge number of comments on my Serge Nubret photo from the '70s, here is another great physique I was fortunate to work with in the early '70s. In 1970 I filmed my first ever NABBA Universe and captured Arnold's final NABBA Pro victory. Paul Grant was in the Amateur Universe placing 6th in Class 1.
In 1971 Paul Grant was back again, bigger, better and ripped. I knew Paul from my visits to Wales, so booked him for a photo and film shoot on the day before the Prejudging. The PJ was on the Friday, 17th September, with the Show the next day, the 18th at the Victoria Palace Theatre, London.
Next day at the Prejudging I could see that it was a huge battle between Paul and Ken Waller from USA. It subsequently turned out that Ken won the Tall Class 1, and then took the Overall Amateur Mr Universe title. Paul was an extremely worthy runner up. Bill Pearl won the Pro Class defeating Sergio Oliva.
In 1973 Paul came back to the Universe considerably better than in 1971. He convincingly won this class. We had another shoot on the day before Prejudging, but I will keep that story and photos for next time. See my 1971 colour photo of Paul.
You can see Paul posing at the 1971 Universe in the 1970 & 1971 NABBA Universe Download, or on DVD, V-108DVD.

|2001 ARNOLD CLASSIC plus PUMP ROOM!!
2001 ARNOLD CLASSIC plus PUMP ROOM.
This is my own personal trip down memory lane to my first ever journey to the Arnold Classic in 2001. It subsequently became the earliest Arnold Classic event to be released on DVD. I will never forget the excitement and anticipation in attending this famous event in Columbus Ohio.
The 2001 Arnold Schwarzenegger Classic was held at the wonderful old Columbus Veterans Memorial. This was also the venue for a number of Mr Olympia contests of the past. A very special highlight was seeing Arnold present Reg Park with the Lifetime Achievement Award, and Reg's response.
The contest created history with Ronnie Coleman becoming the first Mr. Olympia winner to also win the Arnold Classic. Now is a good to time to look back to my first Arnold Classic DVD in view of the 2017 Arnold Sports Festival commencing next week.
See all of the details, reports, results and more in the 2001 Arnold Classic & Pump Room DVD, GMV-412DVD.

|A second look back to the 1978 NABBA Universe & the GMV Newsletter!!
Serge Nubret & Linda Cheesman, 1978 Universe.
It was a sunny Sunday morning in London's Russell Square, on the day after the 1978 NABBA Universe. Serge was not very happy at his second placing, and for that reason chose not to pose in trunks, and just did upper-body shots.
He was in tremendous condition. I am presently working on a doco in tribute to Serge's life in bodybuilding.
You can see the photo and story on the GMV Facebook page.
Please like our GMV Facebook page and keep an eye on it as we post something new and different every day.
