“I was able to convince myself that I was the winner and I think that’s the secret of winning is to win it ahead of time.”

Frank Zane is a American former professional body builder. Author of more than 15 books on fitness, nutrition, and body building. But calling him a body builder doesn’t really do him justice.

He’s a three time Mr. Olympia and his physique is considered to be one of the greatest in the history of body building, due to his incredible focus on symmetry and proportion. He was called the king of aesthetics in the body building world.
