In the 1970s, bodybuilding had major publicity thanks to the appearance of Arnold Schwarzenegger , Franco Columbu , Lou Ferrigno , and others in the 1977 docudrama Pumping Iron . By this time, the IFBB dominated the competitive bodybuilding landscape and the Amateur Athletic Union (AAU) took a back seat. The National Physique Committee (NPC) was formed in 1981 by Jim Manion ,  who had just stepped down as chairman of the AAU Physique Committee. The NPC has gone on to become the most successful bodybuilding organization in America, and is the amateur division of the IFBB. The late 1980s and early 1990s saw the decline of AAU-sponsored bodybuilding contests. In 1999, the AAU voted to discontinue its bodybuilding events.
At this point, NutraBio has done its job to get me ready to perform. These supplements hit the broad spectrum of benefits including: optimal health, joint care, recovery, energy, stamina, and strength. There’s only one thing left to do — rebuild. All athletes have to perform not only that day but also the day after that and the day after that. I rebuild with 100% whey isolate, the protein that gives me exactly what I need, is dairy-free, and tastes great. Dutch chocolate and banana are my current favorite flavors. After a long, grueling workout, I make sure to have two scoops of the isolate to maximize the final stage of recovery and rebuilding.
