Paul shows us his biceps workout, starting out pumping up in the gym with some heavy barbell curls, done seated and standing. He is also in outstanding shape as he displays his mature and quite outstanding physique and huge 20″ arms. Next we see concentration curls as Paul pumps his arms to the max. To finish the biceps work Paul does some bent over barbell concentration curls. This is followed by chins followed by some Scott preacher curls. The whole segment is crisp, well lit and very clear photography when you consider the technology of the day.
Finally Paul shows us his posing routine at a Frank Burwash contest in Melbourne which we believe was in 1974. The intensity of his posing display and great condition was greatly appreciated by the sellout audience.
Paul placed 2nd in the 1972 Mr. Australia and in the 1972 IFBB Southern Hemisphere Mr Universe. He was also the promoter of the 1980 Mr. Olympia contest won by Arnold.
