The unforgettable wasp waist and surely one of the most recognizable physiques ever in NABBA, WABBA or the IFBB, Brian Buchanan. Starting weight training at just 15 years old, he soon knew he had a physique that was special, making his mind up at 16 that he would become Mr Universe. After a couple of losses at the Pro Universe to Ed Kawak, he took a couple of years off, 'To perfect my tan' as he explained to Peter McGough!! He made his way over to the IFBB and set his mind on becoming Mr Olympia. The incredible shot next to @berrydemey is from the Grand Prix in Italy in 1988 and flexing next to @official_mikechristian at the Pro World Championship. A small collection of outstanding photos to show that you don't need a waist trim belt or special exercises to have a 28" waist and you certainly can have a very decent off season too, you just need great genetics...oh, and plenty of heavy power/bodybuilding training. Brian trained with very heavy weights, and fairly loose form on some exercises as that's what he felt suited his body best...by these photos, I think he got it right!! He also later said that his best ever coach was himself and to have a training partner who was prepared to put in the same level of passion, intensity and commitment as he was...wise words. Enjoy the great, great physique of Brian Buchanan...legend, old school bodybuilding.
