1950 AAU Sr. National Weightlifting Program
Here’s a look at the cover of the 1950 AAU Sr. National Weightlifting Championships. As was customary, the AAU Mr. America bodybuilding contest took place the same weekend. All the cover men did not disappoint, Joe De Pietro, Pete George, Stan Stanczyk, and Joe Pitman all repeated as Gold Medal winners from the year before. Norb Schemansky took second to John Davis.

On the Mr. America front, John Farbotnik took the crown. Melvin Wells and Roy Hilligenn took second and third respectively.
