The history of bodybuilders, as seen through photos

I had no idea that bodybuilder competitions have been around for so long. Apparently the very first muscle-man competition took place in 1901. Weird, right? Here’s a super old-school video of Eugen Sandow performing ‘muscle control’ shows. I guess that’s what they called it back then.

If I had to rate these guys, I’d definitely cast my vote for the old-school athletes. The old black and white men are so much more attractive then the overly-muscled, powerhouses found in the sport today. Seriously, just scroll some of these photos and I’m sure you’ll agree with me.
