    Most guys I know who started bb in the 90's mention Dorian, and especially watching his 'Blood and Guts' video.

    Found out that if you lift a weight, your muscles can grow. I was fascinated by the concept. Then I saw the Flex mags with Cormier, Matarazzo, Ray, Coleman, Flex, Levrone and Nasser.

    Never really considered myself a bodybuilder but I definitely was influenced by The Ultimate Warrior when I was a kid.

    Dad gave me a book by Franco Columbu titled "Winning Bodybuilding," and the rest is history

    Jay Cutler was inspired by Bob Paris' book.

    I still have the original copy I bought in '78, along with his autobiography, "Coming On Strong."

    I started weight training in 1978, the Mentzer Bro's, Arnold, Franco, and a few other's from that time. We drank nasty Bob Hoffman protein and trained like complete idiots. I read every book I could get my hands on, Arthur Jones was my main focus for years.

    I was an Arthur Jones disciple for a solid 2 years from age 18-20.

    A new video for the modern era should have the title : "Drugs and Guts".

    BMC, that FLEX issue with the 87 Nationals coverage was one of the first mags I ever bought, and I still remember looking at the Nats photo report in awe.
