This short documentary about bodybuilding is an excellent primer. It mentions steroids briefly, but not much. This is not a hard-hitting expose of bodybuilding. It is more along the lines of a lighter version of Pumping Iron. It promotes bodybuilding, and interviews numerous past and present bodybuilding stars; including Arnold Schwarzeneggar, Lou Ferrigno, Frank Zane, and many others. Also interviewed several times is Craig Titus, who was arrested in 2006 for murder and is currently awaiting trial. He actually is pretty honest about using steroids in preparation for the Mr. Olympia contests. Wayne DeMillia, Ben Weider, Joe Weider, and many other officials of the IFBB professional bodybuilding organization are also interviewed. Stan McQuay's contest preparation is followed, including his posing at Musclemania. Overall, this documentary is very informative and entertaining.
