The first fitness equipment in the world | Old School Bodybuilding
The first fitness equipment in the world was invented by Dr. Gustav Zander in 1892.
Fitness was part of the daily lives of people not only today but also in the past, as evidenced we have black-and-white photos of the first fitness devices. We see that every machine is designed to train a specific part of the human body (like today’s machines).
Dr. Gustav Zander was a Swedish therapist and orthopedic, who discovered the link between exercise and health.
According to Zander muscle mass in the body needs to be accumulated gradually using the exercises that people have been doing for centuries.
The oldest fitness device called “gymnastics” was invented in 1796. A few decades later Zander simplifies this device and makes it more convenient to use.
Fitness machines are designed for the wealthy population in Sweden. 20-ies of XX century inventions of Dr. Gustav Zander had already spread across the United States.
During the 70’s Arthur Jones invented the machine “Nautilus” which is “pumped” muscles more than machines that was originally created by Gustav Zander. Today, these machines are one of the best devices for training.
Pictures from 1892 listed the invention are stored in the National Museum of Science and Technology in Stockholm.

“You Are Never To Old To Set Another Goal Or To Dream A New Dream.”- C.S. Lewis
European Arnold Classic is always a top spot every year, still a few weeks after Mr. Olympians gather the cream of bodybuilding in the old continent, exactly in Spain. Major changes have not occurred in this competition – eg. Take down from the throne of the current Olympic champions – and unfortunately it looks like, that it will not be any this year.
Start list European Arnold Classic became final, which revealed interesting facts about the autumn season!
It is not excluded, of course, but the current start list (which is composed according to the received responses to sent invitations) no defending champion and the obvious favorite Phil’s Heath, and there will be no Kai’s Greene.
Phil has made such a statement, that his professional career is planned for an additional five years could easily mean the participation of only five events – with what is clearly alluded to Olympia.
It will be more interesting, a real treat, however can be Zack Khan. Excellent Britain, years ago, won his professional status, but because of the fractured ligaments in both knees, withdrew from the competition in several years, as far as the IFBB contests.
His return was not as successful as they had hoped. Poor condition, on his thighs were visible signs of injuries. Because for a long time disappeared from the circle of active contestants, so it seemed, to Zack retired, but his name on the start list proves that there is no question about it. Resting was hopefully beneficial to him, and will now finally show what he’s capable of, because if it is indeed able to cover up traces of injuries, and corrected his weaknesses, finally can seriously lay his card among other professionals.
Roelly Winklaar freak who will one day shine as one of the biggest hits of modern bodybuilding.

Hands that are certainly on the short list for best ever, better fit on his shoulder improved. The legs are massive and unique shapes. The chest is becoming fuller, belly is actually expressed, and his back from each event better and better.
That’s why we made a motivational poster, to remind all of Roelly Winklaar before Mr. Olympia 2015.
Here is a list of foods that are labeled as “low glycemic”. Such food is ideal for a more constant flow of energy (slower absorption, lower insulin response):
Fructose (the main sugar in fruits)
Pasta (boiled for 5 minutes)
Dairy products (low-fat milk, yogurt, ice cream)
Fruit (SELF-plums, peaches, apples, oranges, pears, grapes, grapefruit) (containing fructose)
Most vegetables (Exceptions-carrots, corn, red vegetables)
Foods with a low glycemic index may benefit your health and your sporting performance. The fact that such food has a slower absorption, thus we ensure the long flow of energy. Such foods reduces the feeling of hunger, which leads to a controlled appetite.
By choosing carbohydrates with low glycemic index we reduce whimsical mood, and increase glycogen stores (clean up more carbs in our muscles), thereby reducing the possibility of storing the rest of glucose into fat cells. Now you can see that by controlling insulin can affect the mechanisms of storage of excess energy as fat.
So, if you’re on a diet, foods with a low GI is the right choice.
If you plan to eat before a workout, then choose carbohydrates with a low GI. Foods with such an index would reduce premature reduction in blood glucose before training which can lead to fatigue.
I do not know about you, but I have to be ready for every training 100% and you can not afford to decreased blood sugar in the middle of training that will lead to premature fatigue.
