If Lou Ferrigno could rewind time – would he have jumped into being The Hulk at the cost of never winning Mr. Olympia?

Lou Ferrigno is a bodybuilding legend in his own right – so fittingly Lou now owns and runs the Lou Ferrigno Legacy bodybuilding competition (which is on November 18 & 19 in Palm Springs California – mark your calendars!). Between his masterful physique, his memorable appearance in Pumping Iron, and eventually becoming known as The Incredible Hulk across the world… Lou Ferrigno can safely go down as one of the most successful bodybuilders in the history of the sport.

Shawn Ray sat down with Lou Ferrigno for an exclusive interview following his life from childhood all the way through bodybuilding, The Hulk, and his post retirement bodybuilding efforts. He also asks the most important question of all – if he could rewind time and do it all again… would he choose being Mr. Olympia over being The Hulk? Check out the interview above and find out!

Also make sure to check out the Lou Ferrigno Legacy on November 18 & 19! For full information make sure to check out the official website right here!



  1. Great interview. You know what I love about interviews with big Lou is he never makes excuses he just gives all credit to bodybuilding even today he doesnt rip on the freaks you see up there now or discredit the new addition classic physique. He speaks of bodybuilding not only as a bodybuilder but also as a fan would speak of it today who has never completed. Believe big Lou accomplishing all that he did before even getting in the 74 Olympia as a 22 year old the obstacles he had to overcome back then with his Hearing & Speech speaks volumes of his strength as a not only a bodybuilder but as a person. Also Shawn Ray has found his new calling. Great interviews he has been giving not asking lame ass questions like did u take steroids back then. Great post GI
