    Default My day on the set of Evolution of Bodybuilding - Lee Labrada

    On Wednesday, I had the chance to go with Shawn Ray and co-producer Patrick to the taping of Lee Labrada's segment of The Evolution of Bodybuilding.

    They missed their scheduled flight, but their bags did not! Somehow, they got there before their bags.

    I missed several turns the last time I picked them up due to visiting too much while driving. This time, I only missed one.

    Here's Shawn sitting on the couch in Lee's office.





    Here's Patrick setting up the camera and getting ready to film.





    Lee was very hospitable. He greeted us at the door with water and had ordered lunch for us from Salt Grass. He had ordered us all typical bodybuilding fare: grilled chicken, sweet potato, and salad!

    Here's the sign on Lee's desk.




    Lee keeps lots of family pictures around. The brass baby shoes were worn by each of his three sons, the oldest of which is nineteen! They were given to him for Father's Day one year!




    Before we got started, Shawn showed Lee pictures of his daughters Asia and Bella. Lee asked Shawn to E-mail them to him, so he could show his wife.




    Two big black and white pictures from his competition years adorned Lee's office walls. As soon as we walked in, Shawn said, "Boy they can sure do some good things with that Photo Shop!"

    Before we got started, Shawn took a stab at redecorating Lee's office.




    Here are the guys just prior to the interview.




    Here are Lee and Shawn doing a separate interview just for MD.




    Before we left, Lee pulled some of his guys out to talk shop.




    We got to walk through the warehouse, which contained a gym!

    Shawn




    Lee




    Here's a T-shirt Lee gave me before we left. It's got a scripture on the back. Lee mentioned his faith many times while we were there.




    Here's my Evolution of Bodybuilding Shirt.




    I also left with a pink Smart Shake and some samples from Lee. I will review them all in my blog!

    By far, the best part of the day was listening to the guys chat and reminisce during lunch. First they caught up with each other, then the started sharing stories of where everybody was now.

    Some of the stories I knew, some I didn't, and some will never be told!

    It was a great day!

    Lee said he though he had done his last photo shoot when he retired, but he's got two coming up. One is for a cover shot! I would say he looks great for 51, but really he looks great for any age.

    Awesome dude, looks great too. BTW tho all the retired bodybuilders doing the supplement line thing, Lee's products are the real deal! Great quality of ingredients, something for every diet, and taste fucking great.

    He always had a baby face, I thought. He doesn't look 51 at all.

    He takes pride in what he does and made mention several times how important it is to help people transform. Without a doubt, he's at a stage where giving back is important to him.

    He was even telling us fun little tips, like to microwave the bars. When Patrick was telling him he liked a particular flavor, he ran to the back and got him a whole box full to take home, and said, "Man, you have got to try these microwaved!"

    He's just kind of ageless.

    Even rocks gray hair well. Lee Labrada is great for bodybuilding. Wish he had more presence.
