It never ends. I love keeping busy, positive and moving forward on a daily basis says, Ric.  Living in Sherman Oaks Ca is fine but I also like to take breaks from the daily routine and come to Venice for a workout and lunch at the Firehouse. I always meet new fans and set up interviews as well.  Venice will always be my roots and my home.

Still training 6 days a week and staying good shape even though have suffered many wrestling injuries.  It’s the only way to live and train. I know no other way.  Ric received the Joe Gold Lifetime Achievement Award in Las Vegas in 2012 and last year the Orange County Legends in Wrestling and Sports Achievement award.

Steve’s body transformation was legendary. He went from being a very strong 285 lbs. power lifter to a 200 lbs. IFBB Mr. World.
     At 285 lbs. Steve was not your typical fat boy, sure he was smooth but he had size and he built his body at that time for strength and power. Once he decided that he wanted to be a successful competitive bodybuilder the transformation began.  This transformation was consistent with all endeavors in Steve’s life. He performed an honest assessment on his nutrition, diet, supplementation and training. He then sought out the best and put a plan together to reach his new goal, Mr. World.
Just look at the results, Steve is arguably one of the most muscular and symmetrical bodybuilders of any generation. Admittedly Steve is not one of the mass monsters, and there are reasons for this. Steve always strived to maintain muscularity, vascularity and symmetry, and was not willing to sacrifice these for size. Also, from a genetic standpoint, Steve was not wired to be the 6’ 250 lbs. bodybuilder. But, he was wired to be the 6’ 200 lbs. bodybuilder with great lines, symmetry and muscularity. Clearly, Steve built his body to his genetic potential.
