Reg Park is recognized as one of the greatest bodybuilders ever to have participated on the world stage. This is a tribute to this great and humble man, which provides an insight into the real Reg Park – the champion, the husband, the father, the friend, the actor, the teacher, the healer, the inspiration and the gentleman.
Reg Park inspired generations of future bodybuilding champions – such as Arnold Schwarzenegger, Frank Zane, Bill Grant, Lou Ferrigno, Johnny Isaacs and Tom Platz – who all tell of the influence that Reg had in shaping their lives and careers.
Reg Park changed the way bodybuilders posed – incorporating music and lighting into his routines for the first time at the suggestion of his wife - who had been a professional ballet dancer. He also popularized the role of the muscle man on the silver screen when he starred as Hercules in five Italian “Sword & Sandal” films during the 1960’s.
In this DVD, subtitled “Train the Reg
Park Way”: Reg’s son, Jon Jon, reveals some of his training secrets and along with Steve Uria, they demonstrate how Reg trained
each of the major muscle groups.
