Early Bodybuilder Bobby Pandour

Posted on Saturday, May 14th, 2016 by John Wood

Bobby Pandour was an early physique superstar and Vaudeville performer during the 1900’s. Surprisingly, Pandour never trained with heavy weights but built his incredible physique with gymnastics, muscle control work, hand balancing and high-rep training with a pair of 10-pound dumbbells.

At his peak, Pandour weighed only 160 pounds at a height of 5’6″. It was reported that he had a 42-inch chest, 23-inch thighs and 17-inch arms. As you can see, his development is quite impressive even a century later.
