The Vintage Muscles of Muscle Beach

Muscle Beach

Let’s go back to a time when Venice Beach was an affordable and cool place to be. When average Joe’s with dreams could rent a pad on the beach and fulfill their creative, musical, artistic and physical aspirations with other like-minded people.

Where the vision and legacy of Muscle Beach was established as a hallmark training ground for top Olympians, gymnasts, and anyone else with a passion for body building. Ya’ know, like Arnold Schwarzenegger and Jack LaLanne, to name a few. The love for body building is still going strong in today’s culture, but this video is a memory of simpler times, of tight, neon spandex, heaping testosterone and big, big muscles.

Oh, and snoopy.
