Well, it was requested, so I will oblige...

I was reading up on the thread about Universal's new look and the other night I was looking through some old magazines that I have from the early 90's and I took some snapshots of the Universal line ads so I decided to post them up.

Now, the fun part... It's your turn...

Post up some old school training tips (that I'm sure have changed by now), ads, clothing (fanny packs and spandex were the fashion...), hairstyles (MULLETS welcomed) of our favorite bodybuilding icons OR pics of yourself....

I'll start with a few.... Some Universal ads and ANIMAL PAK...

I'm especially interested in hearing from those fellas were you training in the 80s and 90s and what Universal supps they used back then. Today, it's all about Shock Therapy, Storm, Real Gains, Intra-Aid, EAA Stack and the like--but what were you fellas using from the previous two decades?

I started training originally in 1982, I worked at Golds gym in London, the first franchise over here, some people had the pak back then and a protein by universal that I can`t be sure of but a fair few of the lifters used the pak and protein at the gym after training.

My memory isn`t that good, lol

I just recently used the Hard Fast protein a few months back. Didn't realize it was that "old".

It just amazes me how far it's evolved.... I was just thinking today about putting back my "new" mags and what we will be doing 10 years from now....
