Bob Hoffman vs Joe Weider 1951 Boxing Match Challenge​

Sep 5, 2019


Who would win? Weider or Hoffman? In this video, I ponder the outcome (had it happened) of the 1951 challenge made between rivals Joe Weider and Bob Hoffman for a lifting, physique, and boxing competition. Quite a unique contest.

A man lost more than 150 pounds after retiring by walking and tracking macros. Here's his routine.​

  • A 59-year-old man lost more than 150 pounds by walking and tracking his macronutrients.
  • He said he planned to get back in shape after gradually gaining weight over the years.
  • He also started competing in bodybuilding shows and even won a contest in 2021.
The day that Ken Jones retired, he went for a walk.

It was the first small step of what would become a more than eight-year fitness journey, resulting in a total of more than 150 pounds of weight loss, the Texas resident told Business Insider.

"Everybody says I'm half the person I used to be," he said in an interview coordinated by the health-tracking app MyFitnessPal.
