We also said that beginning in , the Golden Age entered into its "twilight" in that the light of natural training and classic physiques was beginning to die out as the darkness of steroids descended. This "twilight" period lasted through the s as the Golden Age died and finally the Dark Ages began in the s - meaning that the world of bodybuilding was now overtaken completely by steroid use.

Now, you can hear for yourself, an Interview with Bob Gallucci - one of the few natural trainers and competitors during the s and 70s - who was there when the darkness descended. He was one of the few who followed the tradition of the CPB champs as the light of the Golden Age died around him. The interview is quite lengthy, but it is historically important if you wish to know how and when the Golden Age died. The interview appears on John Hansen's naturalbodybuildingradio.

Although this is a sad topic, it is important to understand how thoroughly steroids have overtaken the world of bodybuilding and that it still persists in those "Dark Ages" that began in the s.

It is not even necessary although it is our ideal to aspire to the same level of mass that the CPB champs had! So instead of just thinking and being overly concerned with size.
