Tony Coppola lost an incredible three stone in just eight weeks as he trained for the NPA Midlands Bodybuilding Championships in Stratford on Saturday. And his hard work and dedication paid off as doorman Tony, from Tile Hill, Coventry, came first in the over-50s section, and third in the masters over-40 category. The tournament is organised by the Natural Physique Association which bans competitors from using steroids, although certain sports supplements like extra protein are allowed.

Weider, also known for starting the Mr Olympia bodybuilding contest in the 1960s and mentoring a young Arnold Schwarzenegger, passed away from heart failure at a Los Angeles area hospital, his longtime publicist Charlotte Parker said. "Joe Weider was a titan in the fitness industry and one of the kindest men I have ever met," Schwarzenegger said in a statement posted on his official website. "He leaves behind a fantastic legacy of a fitter world," the film star and former governor of California said. <br>Source:

Arnold Schwarzenegger Sells Bodybuilding Drama 'Pump' to Showtime (Exclusive)

That scenario is not very likely. The intense training required of bodybuilding is certainly worthy of any sport and probably more difficult than most but the results of that training cannot realistically be considered a sport since the contestants are judged solely on their appearance and not by how hard they worked out to get there. Wrestlers work out hard too, and their diet is probably more extreme than any sport, but they are judged by their performance on the mat not how good they look in their tights.

Some readers will argue that sports such as figure skating, gymnastics, and synchronized swimming, for example, are not always judged objectively either, and its true. The difference is that athletes in these sports like wrestling are ultimately judged on how well they perform certain skills inherent to their sport NOT their looks. <br>Source:

our editor recommends Arnold Schwarzenegger Compares Himself to Roman Emperor at 'Last Stand' Premiere Party Arnold Schwarzeneggeris returning to his roots. The former bodybuilder-turned-California governor has sold a dramato Showtime that hits particularly close to home. The project, titled Pump, traces the origin of the present-day fitness industry and culture of body worship to a single 1,000-square-foot concrete room on Pacific Avenue: a gym called Pump. PHOTOS: Arnold Schwarzenegger's Top Grossing Films The hourlong drama effort, which is set in early 1970s Venice Beach, Calif., will be written and executive produced by Michael Konyves (Barneys Version, The Last Knight), with The Tannenbaum Co.'s Eric and Kim Tannenbaum(Two and a Half Men) and Schwarzenegger attached as exec producers. If ultimately ordered to series, Schwarzenegger intends to recur. Konyves, who had a deal at the CBS TV Studios-based Tannenbaum Co., initially brought the idea to the Tannenbaums. "We loved it, but I said the only way you can really tell this story is if we can get Arnold involved," recalls Eric Tannenbaum, adding: "The birth of the fitness/bodybuilding revolution can literally be traced back to the days when Arnold arrived in the U.S." Tannenbaum reached out to CAA, which reps him as well as the former governor, and set up a meeting. <br>Source:
