Jerry Brainum - Fate of Fitness by Brian Ellicott

Great hour long interview with Jerry Brainum.

Jerry has been involved with the body-building and fitness industry since the 1960's.

We discuss training in the 60' and 70's with legends such as Arnold Schwarzenegger, Frank Zane, Vince Gironda and the original Gold's gym.

We take a brief look at diet approaches of the day and the some of the infamous supplements that were available such as dissected liver tablets.

We rap up with the current state of the industry and Jerry's recommendations to avoid useless supplements.
