Talk 026 Durango Iron Athlete Bodybuilding Show 1992
Steve talks about his final bodybuilding competition, held in Durango, Colorado, and then shows an old film of his onstage posing routine. The original audio was poor, thus it was muted for this talk, and the presentation was then over-scored with another piece of music. Steve competed sporadically during the final years of his competitive show life, with his earlier years heavily filled with competitions. Bodybuilding competition provides extreme motivation for the competitor to attain the best condition possible, says Steve.
Iron Vegan Background Information:
Veteran Bodybuilder Steve Greene shares his thoughts about the lifestyle of bodybuilding as it contributes to a fit healthy existence, and its positive effects on maximizing longevity. Steve began bodybuilding in 1968, as a defense response to a high school bully. What began in negativity so many years ago eventually emerged as a serious lifelong way of existence that is now ingrained behavior. He discusses with viewers the many varied benefits of bodybuilding in his presentations.
Steve competed in physique contests for seventeen years, and knew many “golden era” bodybuilders personally, training with several of the best at Bill Pearl’s Pasadena Health Club in southern California, including Bill Pearl himself (4x Mr. Universe), Jim Morris (1973 Mr. America), Chris Dickerson (1982 Mr. Olympia), Dennis Tinerino (Mr. Universe), Dave Johns, Clint Beyerle, and many others. He was schooled by the top men of the 1970s, and was a contributing writer and photographer for Muscle Digest magazine during that time. Steve was the owner/trainer of Globe Gym in southern California after leaving Bill Pearl’s gym in the 1980s.
On this channel, he now discusses many aspects of bodybuilding, including, but not limited to, training, diet, ego, injuries, and the aging bodybuilder. He will also examine commonly held beliefs that a bodybuilder must eat animals and animal products in order to achieve noteworthy muscle growth, and talks about his own permanent transition from a highly carnivorous diet during his earlier years to a diet that is now totally herbivorous. Steve continues to train three times weekly, for two hour sessions.
