Bob Paris

Bodybuilder Bob Paris in a cool 80's setting

Bob Paris, 1983 Heavyweight class and Overall Champion (NPC National Championships [Mr. America] & IFBB World Championships [Mr. Universe and professional qualifier]), in a very post-modern, quite New Wave setting.

Fall Fashions....

Bob was professional bodybuilding's 1st (and is untill today the only) openly gay athlet - he came out in the July 1989 issue of Ironman Magazine. Bob and his then-partner, Rod Jackson, had a commitment ceremony in a Unitarian church in 1989 [so they could officially cheat on each other ;-)].

Paris & Jackson

In 1995, the two separated.
Today, Paris lives with his spouse, Brian, on an island near Vancouver, British Columbia. Together since 1996, Bob and Brian were legally married after Canada equalized the marriage laws in 2003. (source: wikipedia)

Those ladies probably wouldn't have cared about him being gay as long as they could get a taste of those bis'n'pecs:

Still holding the title of "1st Openly Gay Pro Bodybuilder"

Some Mike Quinn

For those of you who only know metric: 27 inches would be 68.6 cm...

Seductive fitness ads

I had no idea Brigitte Nielsen did gym porn.
Gynecological glutes machine
80's Muscle! gives you the Gynecological Glutes Machine.

Millions of those fitness tools have been sold back in the 80's because guys actually believed they'd come with a lady who's willing to do it doggy style.

Finnish bodybuilder Keijo Reiman

Don't miss this video of Keijo training for the Finnish Grand Prix 1989 with stars like Samir Bannout, Mike Christian, Lee Labrada, Mike Quinn and many more (3 parts).

A couple of muscles.

I forgot their names. I think he was a professional football player. Anyways, I'm scared to death of both of them.

Tony Pearson

And what a wide back that is.

"Cause this is THRILLER!!!"


Still in awesome shape - and NOT only for his age!!!

Those Jheri curls have all gone. His muscles never did.

Steve Bond (General Hospital)

Soap star Steve Bond (General Hospital), born Shlomo Goldberg, sporting a skin tight spandex singlet.

Stretchy 80's couple II

I wonder if he had a lot of shirtless air time. Probably he was the only chiseled soap star in a time before it was mandatory for actors to be buff (well, except for Arnold, Sly & Co. of course).

For comparison:
Steve Bond. Lot's of 80's Muscle.
Stretchy 80's couple

Pierce Brosnan. No significant 80's Muscle.

You are temptation

"HIIII HANDSOOOME!!"*gigglegiggle*

From Brad Hollibaugh's 80's treasure chest

"WAAAH! Can you believe the size of it?!?" Lee Labrada beholding Brad Hollibaugh's buffness.

Ok, technically some of these photos are early 90's, but it's definitely the 80's spirit.

Too bad people don't work out in clothes like this anymore.

But then again: did they ever? I wonder if during the 1980's a single man on this planet ever hit the gym in spandex tights combined with a college jacket with no shirt under it.

Reposted: Teenage bodybuilder Richard Casoli and his awesome basecap.

I had to repost this video since one of my favorite youtube members shut down his account - shame. It was one of the most amazing collection of 80's bodybuilding videos ever. Don't you just hate it when this happens?

Anyways. Life goes on. Glad I found this gem somewhere else. Check it out. All you 80's extravaganza fetishists will start fainting at 2:30.

Late 80's perfection.

This could be either an ad for some protein shake or for Pantene Pro-V

You gotta love-hate the late 80s long-haired bodybuilder look. This guy looks like a Chippendale dancer or maybe a young Fabio.
