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. "Very few people can claim to have influenced as many lives as Joe did through his magazines, his supplements, his training equipment and his big-hearted personality." Born in a tough neighborhood of Montreal in 1920, Weider began lifting weights as a teenager to stand up to bullies and older boys before competing in his first bodybuilding contest at the age of 17, according to a biography provided by Parker. He started his first magazine, Your Physique, in the early 1940s and with his younger brother Ben rented Montreal's Monument National Theater to host the first Mr Canada contest during that same decade. The two brothers also founded the International Federation of Bodybuilders and in 1965 Weider created the Mr Olympia competition, the sport's premiere bodybuilding contest. Weider met Schwarzenegger at a bodybuilding contest in Europe and convinced him to move from his native Austria to the United States to seek wider recognition.

MusclePharm Releases New Formulation of Award-Winning Pre-Workout Product ASSAULT™
Cahill was facing federal charges for mixing a highly toxic pesticide with baking powder, stuffing it in capsules and selling it over the Internet for weight loss.

INTERACTIVE: Supplement creator discusses business in deposition Over the course of a nearly 12-year career, Cahill has continued to launch new and risky products, flourishing in the $30 billion dietary supplement industry as federal regulators struggled to keep up with his changing series of companies, a USA TODAY investigation has found.

This reviewer once overheard a young actor in the gym say, If I ever got a lead role in a movieId do a cycle click here. (of steroids). This was a curious statement at the time. Now its pretty much a thing: bodybuilding-as-acting. What with Huge Jackman ripping off his shirt and flexing every 20 seconds, Marvel Comics latestthe fairly entertaining The Wolverineunquestionably falls into this category. This is a story of Logan, the manly mutton-chopped mutanthe of the tri-clawed fists and hammer-headed hairdo. We meet him at the start of the movie doing solo prison time down a dry well in Japan, on the day the Americans drop the atom bomb on Nagasaki. He helps a young Japanese soldier survive the blast.
