Robert Conrad

Posted on Friday, October 7th, 2016 by John Wood
The TV actor Robert Conrad, who was best known as Tom Lopaka in “Hawaiian Eye” in the early 1960’s, and Jim West in The Wild Wild West” in the mid and late 1960’s, was also avidly into weightlifting, physical fitness, and as evident by this shot, rope climbing.

This was long before strength training was en vogue in Hollywood or elsewhere although he did it more for his roles since he also did all his own stunts. Conrad even graced the cover of the October, 1962 issue of Strength and Health Magazine.
