Mike Emery’s DVD Review
Two popular American physique stars of the seventies and early eighties, plus a Junior German Champion.
See ERNIE SANTIAGO posing & pumping on Venice Beach, the day before he won the 1983 Mr. U.S.A. – ripped to shreds. Defined muscle mass plus symmetry in the brilliant California sun! Shot on video this is totally different footage of Ernie including his victory at the Gold’s Classic of 1983.
STEVE DAVIS pumped, posed and oiled for our studio camera at John Balik’s famous Venice Beach studio. This top L.A. Bodybuilder is a tough muscular package of dynamite. The day before our shoot he placed second to Santiago in the famous Gold’s Classic of 1983. This segment runs for 17 minutes.
TORSTEN PETROWITZ: This segment only was shot on film and transferred to video. Shot in 1981 in a gym near Heidelberg, 20 year old Torsten shows us his favourite exercises that helped him win the Junior Mr. Germany title. Includes some incredible arm & chest posing.
