Reg Park Working Out c. 1960s

Known for inspiring countless gym goers during the twentieth-century, Reg Park was truly one of bodybuilding’s first stars. Alongside Grimek and others, he helped popularise the sport in both the United States and Europe more generally. Although many photos exist of the man at his peak, few depict him in the middle of working out, something which makes today’s post so fascinating.

Taken from Park’s own magazine (published in the 1960s), they show the English bodybuilder at the height of his strength and power. If nothing else, its a nice reminder to hit the gym today!
