John Grimek said that Gene Mozee is "the first and best bodybuilding photojournalist." Vince Gironda called him a "walking bodybuilding encyclopaedia." Prolific sports photographer and writer, his work constitutes a vivid record of modern bodybuilding.Gene's interest in bodybuilding started at the tender age of 16. His goal at that time was to bulk up a slender 129 pound frame to play football.An interest in bodybuilding developed and at the Mr. Los Angeles competition, a chance meeting with Ed Fury led him to start training in earnest.Fury took young Gene and his brother George under his wing and to Muscle Beach, where they met champions like Steve Reeves, Malcomb Brenner, Armand Tanny, Marvin Eder, Dominick Juliano, Al Berman, Joe Sanceri and Zabo Koszewski.Marvin Eder's fantastic physique and strength inspired Gene to achieve an incredible record himself. He was the first man in the world to officially bench 400 pounds with a two-second pause at the chest (and a grip less than 32 inches wide)! This was the first of two world bench press records he set.As a competitive bodybuilder, Gene won several trophies and "Best Poser" at every event that held this subdivision.Gene formerly owned the Pasadena Gym. During that period, he helped train 12 bodybuilding title winners and hundreds of athletes, including hall of famer David "Deacon" Jones of the Los Angeles Rams. The Pasadena Gym produced five straight California state weightlifting champion teams, and three state powerlifting championships.While attending the Los Angeles College of Chiropractic, he was the editor of the college's newspaperwhere he came to the attention of Walt Marcyan who offered him the job as Editor-in-Chief of Physical Power Magazine. Accepting the position, Gene soon realized that the magazine needed more photos to go with the excellent training articles primarily aimed at athletes. So he began studying photography.He began taking pictures of his gym members, including future champions Don Howorth, Gordon Wong, Alex Delianedis and Bernie Ernst. He then learned muscle photography from Wolf Schramm and Russ Warner. Peter Gowland helped him with glamour photography and Gene won awards for his photographs of beautiful girls.Gene went to work in the movie industry for Paramount Studios, MGM and Warner brothers in the photo department for six years. With this extensive background, he has had more than 100 magazine covers and 3000 photographs published. Gene is a master of light and shadow. Numerous photos exhibit a profound penetration of character, such as his acclaimed portrait of Bill Bubinsky (above left).As a writer, he has written more than 2000 articles about bodybuilding and 20 training booklets for such superstars as Arnold Schwarzenegger, Larry Scott and Franco Columbu.He was the Editor-in-Chief for Joe Weider's Muscle Builder Magazine during Arnold's peak competitive years and helped launch the careers of Mike Mentzer, Robby Robinson, Denny Gable, Roger Callard, Bob Birdsong, Dale Adrian and Dave DuPre by writing about them and giving them their first publicity. He is still active taking pictures, and h's current work is widely acknowledged as his most confident and masterful.On July 4th, 2001, Gene received the highly coveted "Spirit of Muscle Beach" award, joining such legends as Steve Reeves, Vince Gironda, Joe Gold, Armand Tanny, Larry Scott, Dave Draper, George Eifferman and Reg Lewis to name just a few of the past recipients.------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------DON HOWORTH BIOback in the 1960?s he was a superstar in the bodybuilding world.  Blessed with an amazing ?V? taper  (super broad shoulders and a tiny waist) along with 20? arms, he was destined to be the next Mr. Olympia.  However, as soon as Don hit the scene, he left it and never returned again. Interestingly, there was no money to be made when Howorth was a pro bodybuilder ? even if you were one of the top champions.  According to Don, he didn?t even get paid for photo shoots or endorsing the Weider supplement line.  Moreover, he wrote some articles for the magazines and didn?t get paid for that either.  Therefore, it was all a labor of love, with heavy emphasis on the ?labor.?In fact, that was one of the main reasons Don quit the competitive scene.  Apart from being a lot of work, there was no future in simply being a star among a small segment of people who were into the sport.  Remember, this was prior to ?Pumping Iron? and the appearance of Arnold Schwarzenegger.  It was a very different world.Don was also a child of the hippie scene.  As a result, he got involved in the use of marijuana, which landed him a stint in jail.  As unfair as that punishment may have been, he did his time and got through it being better man.
Don was a follower of the heavy training, and in his interviews he would talk about it, ?I?d do up to twenty sets per body part twice a week.  A workout could last up to four hours? he said. ?We all trained like that.  We did it because we loved it.  When we trained it was considered bad form to even talk to someone.  It was all very serious.?
Don was a big advocate of supplementation use, though in those days there wasn?t much to actually use.  For instance, Don Howorth once said, ?We?d use powdered liver and wheat germ oil bought at veterinarian houses ? anything that might help us put on more muscle.?  During his pro-career he only admitted to use Dianabol at very low dosages.The 60's were also the time when steroids began being used, which explains the sudden leap in muscularity compared to the pros just 10 years prior.  However, there was an apprehension to use the drugs since bodybuilding was so much of a pursuit of health.  Nevertheless, those who were obsessed with more muscle did experiment with anabolic androgenic steroids (AAS), and Don was one of them.   Keep in mind, their choices of steroids were very limited, mainly dinabol and some pure testosterone.  There wasn't a whole line up of anabolic steroids that we have today As mentioned above, Don Howorth was very conservative in matters of steroids, and kept his use of steroids to the minimum, ?I think what people don't realize is, we made such good gains on such low dosages because we worked our asses off!  Today, everybody's relying on the drugs.  Put some of these guys today through the ball busting workouts we did and they'd never make it.  Personally, I used Dianabol - 10 milligrams (mgs) a day before the Mr. America contest.  At one point I used 20 mgs a day, but then I started to retain a lot of water.   We heard things about steroids, but we didn't really know much.  Some people said that it didn't increase strength, but that was bull.  I took 5 mgs of Dianabol for 4 weeks and my bench press went from up thirty five pounds!  I noticed I recovered a lot faster and got great pumps.  But I never took any injectables.  I never even knew about them. The only injection I ever had was when I was in the Navy and I didn't like it!  And I think because I used such a small amount, I never noticed any problems.?
As for diet, Don went with a high protein-high fat-low carb approach.  As a matter of fact, long before it was fashionable, he knew that it were the carbs that made you look smooth, and fats provided energy.  Furthermore, when preparing for a competition he?d eat up to two dozen whole eggs a day!
Don regained his love of training and today, at age 80, he works with high school kids, teaching the benefits of lifting weights.  As incredible as it may seem, in spite of his advanced age he still works out every other day and keeps a very good shape.
