WATCH: Bodybuilding legend Bill Grant talks about the state of bodybuilding


Bill Grant Interviewed

Watch this great interview with bodybuilding legend Bill Grant, thanks to our friends at Penkkipunnerrus.fi.

Bill Grant was visiting Finland’s  Mayor’s Gym and was interviewed by Jukka Nyyssölä.

Bill Grant compared bodybuilding today to his time in the sport. Bill states it was not about how big you are but how proportioned you are, it was not about size. He stressed everything has to flow, but the athletes today have to tone it down.

Grant also said it seems like the bodybuilders today are pushed to get as big as they are today.

The use of certain substances today is also in excess according to Bill Grant. It is distorting their bodies.

He emphasized its up to the people that run the events and the judges to change the sport.

Bill also said that he still loves the sport, but wants to see the sport get back to how it was.

As well he talked about longevity in the sport and health, he said at 70, he is still going strong and it makes him very sad seeing a number of athletes passing away at an early age.
