Interview with Dave Draper as seen in Iron Man on 7-10-03

Q-1) CAN YOU TELLS US ABOUT THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN YOUR ON SEASON TRAINING DIET AND OFF SEASON TRAINING AND DIET?
Dave Draper A) My diet is pretty much the same year-round, high protein, low carb and medium good fats. Remember, I’m 61 years old and though I train harder and more effectively in many ways than I did during my developing and competitive days, my needs are different, my capabilities and possibilities limited.

Mike Matarazzo’s second chance: wisdom for those who have a first chance.

On December 8, 2004, Mike Matarazzo, at the tender age of 38, gained newfound wisdom, primarily because he realized he was alive after having undergone triple-bypass heart surgery. It’s beyond our power to imagine the emotional devastation from that event, just as it’s beyond our power to express our gratitude that this lovable bodybuilding immortal is with us still. Less than three weeks after his surgery, FLEX spoke with a recuperating Matarazzo [“Facing the Future,” March 2005]. Three months later, we spoke with him again, for a closer perspective on–well, …

by Jason Meuller
Jason Meuller: So, did the treatment that you received at the hands of the IFBB, on more than one occasion, have anything to do with you signing on with the WBF?
Danny Padilla: The IFBB is a great organization, but let’s face it, America’s about big. Bodybuilding is about the being the biggest, tallest, strongest guy in the world . . . and for some reason, the powers that be thought that a guy like me just couldn’t sell because …

THE RETURN OF THE GIANT KILLER – part two
by Jason Meuller
Jason Meuller: So what’s going to happen if Danny Padilla competes and does well against guys twenty-five years younger than he is?
Danny Padilla: I suppose I’ll have to reveal the secrets behind my comeback and longevity in the sport.
