“It’s a minority sport.”

Every week, Iron Cinema will connect you with Generation Iron director Vlad Yudin. Giving you unprecedented inside access to the creative process behind his the Generation Iron Fitness Network. Get a first hand look at the entire journey of taking Vlad’s creative ideas to the big screen – from stories on set of films like Generation Iron and CT Fletcher all the way to exclusive behind-the-scene looks at our newest GI news and films. This week Vlad continues his conversation with Dorian Yates about the current state of bodybuilding. Why does Yates disrespect modern bodybuilding so much? And why does he think it’s doomed to be in the shadows forever? Find out in part 2 of our interview.

In my conversation with Dorian Yates one thing was very clear – he didn’t have much kind words to say about the current generation of bodybuilders. This was briefly mentioned in part 1 of my interview with Dorian but I wanted him to go into more detail about what separates the current set of competitors from the so called “glory days” of Ronnie Coleman and Dorian Yates himself. More specifically, Dorian goes into detail about the current champ himself, Phil Heath, and how he compares to the past lineup of champions. And then we finish off with the constant question athletes in the industry struggle with: can bodybuilding ever become mainstream. For Yates it’s a simple answer… but not necessarily a promising one. Hear all of his thoughts in part 2 of my interview with Dorian Yates above.
