Classic Physique Builder Zine: New CPB Readers' Page!

(Above: "Before" and After Photos of Steve Reeves, Mr America 1947, Mr World 1948, Mr Universe 1950)

We hope everyone has been enjoying the Winter 2010 issue of Classic Physique Builder Zine (CPBzine)! For our next issue, we thought of adding something new: a CPB Readers' Page!

This page will consist of photos of our CPB Readers across the world! So if you have photos of yourself that you would like to appear in CPBzine, then just send them to us along with some information we can use.

In general, we will need your name (the name you would like to use), your country, and any other information you would like to share (e.g., what Golden Age methods you are using, what gains you've recently made, etc). You can send "before" and "after" photos if you like, or just one photo. They don't have to be physique posing shots either. Perhaps you have an "action" shot of yourself doing a curl or some other exercise.

We will put together a photo or two and some kind of caption from whatever you send us. Most likely we won't be able to use all the info you send us, but it will be helpful in editing a good caption for your photo(s). Also, if your picture doesn't make the next issue, we will save it for a future issue.

So if you want to appear in CPBzine, just send us your photos and info to

By the way, this idea came from CPB Reader - Johnny G! Thanks Johnny!

P.S. If you would like a free 1 year subscription to Classic Physique Builder Zine (CPBzine) - a pdf "zine" (do-it-yourself magazine) that is patterned after the muscle mags of the pre-roid Golden Age of Bodybuilding (the 1940s and 50s) - just email your name, the name of your country (not your actual street address), state/province, and country to That's it! Any info you send us is strictly confidential. We don't share info with anyone. So you won't get on any unwanted lists or received any unwanted, automated spam (even from us!).

Good idea! The latest edition of the magazine was very good too. Does anyone know how much Steve Reeves weighed in the photo on the right? I am guessing that the photo was taken during his visit to France? Keep up the good work on the site!
