There is not much information listed on the web, concerning Vic Downs? The following training information was found on Iron Age and presented by Mark Mills. Interesting how he spilt his training program, for maximum results, during that time? July 1968 Ironman: Downs started training at 32 years of age. He's 39 in these pictures. He says he eats 2 dozens eggs a day, everyday! "It's the only way!" says Downs. The article states, "A heavy man can only retain muscular condition, if he eats a reduced carbohydrate diet." Downs had been married for 20 years, at the time and had a 19 year old son. Listed measurements are ... Height 5'11" Weight 226 lbs. Chest 49" Waist 32" Upper arm 19 1/2" Thigh 26" Calves 16 1/2" Forearms 12 1/2" Downs believed in taking little rest between sets. Here's his routine...
