"Whenever you're looking at new ways to get in shape, first you have to decide what you want. Do you want a more muscular look, or do you want to slim down and appear more toned and ripped? I adapt my training and diet with each role I do, depending on the image I want to convey" - Scott Adkins

"When I was ten years old, my dad and brother did judo, so I went along because I felt like I was missing out.

I did lots of different things, but mostly things like Wushu, Jeet Kune Do, Krav Maga and stuff like that" - Scott Adkins

Best Of: Franco Columbu


Biography, Photos And Quotes

Best Of Old School: Franco Columbu

Franco Columbu (August 7, 1941, Ollolai, Sardinia) is an Italian actor and bodybuilder.

Franco scr3.jpg

Starting out his athletic career as a boxer, Columbu progressed into the sport of powerlifting and later bodybuilding, winning the title of Mr. Olympia in 1976 and 1981. At one time he was considered to be one of the world's strongest men and held a number of powerlifting and weightlifting world records. At 5 feet and 5 inches in height, Columbu is shorter than most of his bodybuilding competitors, but that has not prevented him from achieving widespread success.

Franco scr1.jpg

Franco Columbu is also famous for being a long time friend of Arnold Schwarzenegger, whom he met in Munich in 1965 and competed against in several international-level bodybuilding competitions. For the Mr. Olympia competitions however, he competed in the under 200 lb (90.7 kg) category, whereas Schwarzenegger was in the over 200 lb category. The final champion was determined by a pose down between the two class winners. The IFBB has since abandoned weight classes.

 

In addition to his athletic accomplishments, Columbu has also made intermittent minor forays into acting. Appearing alongside Arnold in Pumping Iron, he has also appeared in cameo roles in Conan the Barbarian, The Terminator, The Running Man and starred in his own films, notably, Beretta's Island.

Franco scr2.jpg

He holds doctorates in chiropractic and nutrition.

 

In the movie Pumping Iron Columbu is shown to lift an awkwardly parked Fiat car out of its parking spot.

"Winners Do What They Fear"
- Franco Columbu

 

Columbu was the best man at Arnold Schwarzenegger and Maria Shriver's 1986 wedding.
One of Columbu's feats of strength was to blow up a hot water bottle until it burst.

 

In the Arnold Schwarzenegger film Last Action Hero, the words "A Franco Columbu film" appear on the screen at the beginning of Jack Slater IV (a film within the film) as a tribute to Columbu.

Franco scr5.jpg

In Terminator, Columbu plays the infiltrating terminator in Reese's flashback/dream in which the picture of Sarah Connor is destroyed by fire.

 

In the opening scenes of Conan the Barbarian, Columbu plays a 'pictish scout', complete with mustache, wig and blue body-paint.

 

Columbu competed in the 1977 World's Strongest Man competition and finished fifth, despite not being able to complete all the events having broken his leg in the 'Refrigerator Carry' event.

 

I'm the strongest bodybuilder who ever lived, I think."
- Franco Columbu

Su Farrells 10 Tips To Reach


Your fitness Goals

Su Farrell Top 10 Tips To Reach Your
Fitness Goals In The New Year

4fbe95f16a393ba73fe468ddf67d6eb0_0.jpg

1.MEAL PREP

This is crucial. Yes, when you’re out and about, you can make “healthy choices” but do you actually know every ingredient that is in that salad you just bought? Probably not. Meal prep, once you are practised, can be super fast and efficient. Find a system that works for you. I like to prep my food every night but I know people that do it once or twice a week.  And ultimately, it is the most financially viable option too. And that way you know EXACTLY what you are putting into you body.

2. CONSISTENCY

This is the most important thing when trying to get into shape. Changes don’t happen overnight and sometimes it can be a slow process, but unless you are consistent, you will struggle to change your body. Have faith in yourself and the process, and the results will come.

3. SELFIES

Progress pictures are so important. I may get people going crazy at me and calling me arrogant for the amount of selfies I post during my prep but what better way to compare the changes in your body than with pictures. I also find looking back at these pictures after the event is a great motivational tool. “Ooooh, I want to be that lean again” or “Hmmmm, my legs weren’t quite in proportion to my shoulders so I need to work my legs more”.

4. HAVE A GOAL

So you decide to get into shape, which is great, but do you have a specific goal in mind? Unless you do, will you ever be happy? And these goals will change as you go on of course, but start somewhere, hit that target and then choose a new goal. From my experience, I need something to make me stick to my diet plan, it may be a competition or a photo shoot, but I have a specific goal in mind…Always.

5. IT’S NOT ALL ABOUT THE SCALE

The scale can be deceiving. There are other, much more reliable ways of tracking your progress. (See point 3). Pictures are the best way in my opinion, but measurements are another option. The scale may stay the same but if you are sticking to your plan, your body probably looks completely different. Don’t be discouraged.

6. GET A COACH

I have a Coach, I always have. You will ALWAYS see your body differently to how others see you. Sometimes you need another set of eyes to assess the situation. And if you are coaching yourself, who do you have to answer to if you slip up on your diet? It’s always easier to convince yourself you need a cheat meal when you are hungry, right? A Coach, not so much! Regular check in’s with your coach are a valuable tool to keep you on track. Even if you lie on your food log, if you are sending them pictures, they will know! And hopefully call you out on it.

7. BE ACCOUNTABLE

When I decide on a competition, I post all about it on social media. This keeps me accountable as once I’ve told people my plans, there is no going back. If I keep plans to myself, the option is always there for me to pull out. And that is not cool. Tell EVERYONE what your plans are, that way you really can’t go back on your word.

8. FIND AN AWESOME GYM

The environment you train in can have a HUGE impact on the way you train. If you are surrounded my like minded people who take their training and diet seriously, the chances of you taking your plan seriously are a lot higher. Train with people who are better than you so you are always striving to keep up. Train with people who will push you to be your best. Make sure you find a gym that has all the necessary equipment you need for your goals.

9. LIFT HEAVY

This one is especially for the ladies as men tend to be the opposite and lift too heavy! We (womoen) do not possess enough testosterone to get MASSIVE without some kind of assistance so don’t be afraid. Lifting heavy will give you a great shape which light weights just won’t give you. Stop trying to “tone” up and aim to increase your muscle mass instead. As I said, there is only so much muscle you can put on naturally and this will never be too much, trust me. And the more muscle mass you have, the more fat you will burn so get on it.

10. BUY NEW KIT

There is nothing better than the feeling of putting on a new outfit before hitting the gym. It may be a new vest or a new pair of sneaks but trust me, your motivation will increase ten fold if you feel good in what you are wearing. Some of my best training sessions have been after a little shopping spree! And you can never have too much training kit, right?!
