Today IronGangsta.com presents 15 historical bodybuilding photos that in one way or another speak about the origins of the sport of bodybuilding as well as the whole weightlifting and fitness epidemic that has taken over the world the last decade or so.

Sites like YouTube.com are being flooded with fitness related videos while more and more teenagers are asking their mothers to buy magical muscle elixirs. Who saw that one coming?


Some of the pictures you are about to see and the comments underneath are not as positive as the naive followers of sites like T-Nation are used to – but this is IG.com.
