Lou put in work in his younger days as a professional bodybuilder, and frankly, has fared much better than his counterparts with age. He looked great back then, and looks great to this day, keep up the hard work big guy. At 6’5″ tall, and tipping the scales at 285lbs, Lou Ferrigno is this weeks Beast of the Week.
“After graduating from high school in 1969, Ferrigno won his first major titles, IFBB Mr. America and IFBB Mr. Universe, four years later. Early in his career he lived in Columbus and trained with Arnold Schwarzenegger. In 1974, he came in second on his first attempt at the Mr. Olympia competition. He then came third the following year, and his attempt to beat Arnold Schwarzenegger was the subject of the 1975 documentary Pumping Iron.”
