History of Body Building

Body Building is the use of progressive resistance exercise to control and develop one's musculature for aesthetic purposes. An Individual who engages in this activity is called a bodybuilder.

In the late 19th century in England, a sport of displaying one's physiques was developed by Eugen Sandow. Soon, Canadian brothers Joe and Ben Weider brought this sport into the mainstream public.

Musclemen from all over the globe took part in Mr. Olympia.

With proper training and diet, any amateur with a decent physique used to participate in these competitions as the bodybuilding was at its infancy.

It wasn't about size back in the day, it's been about aesthetics and proportionality. But nowadays, Bodybuilding is out of reach with the idea that"bigger is better" considering the not so impressive bodies of professionals these days.
