Rich began working as a manager at a gym in California but within a few years he would be one of the biggest names in bodybuilding.
He went on to win multiple national titles, second place at Mr Olympia three times in a row, and the Arnold Classic in 1989.
Speaking on the Mike O’Hearn Show, said he’s been “criticised by the younger generation of bodybuilders” but believes that “hard work is being replaced by drugs.”
He went on to have a pop at what he called the “snowflake mentality”.
It comes as Rich recently called out a gym goer for attempting a “stupid exercise”.
He took to Instagram to share bizarre footage of a young weightlifter’s epic – and near-fatal – fail.
The bodybuilder is still pumping iron and doesn’t seem to be slowing down.
He often shares tips and tricks on his Instagram about calorie consumption, the best workouts and advice.
Rich also reecalled in an Instagram post how a day in 1984 changed his life.
“I was working as a manager of the Gold’s Gym in Reseda and since the gym was close to the Weider office, they did many photo shoots at the gym with many current champions
“Well, one of those days, Flex magazine had a photoshoot with Cory Everson and Andreas Cahling and needed an extra in the background.”
The photo got him noticed by legend Joe Weider and Rich began competing for Nationals.
Meanwhile another legendary bodybuilder has revealed his 10 rules for “never-ending growth”.
Jay Cutler’s rules “maximise physical potential” and have been praised by other bodybuilders.
A former Mr America, Robby Robinson, revealed his own secrets to achieving a dream body.
At 76-years-old the former professional bodybuilder is still the most ripped person in his gym and has let fans in on his top tips.
Robinson started pumping iron at Venice Beach’s Gold’s Gym in 1975 and went on to have an illustrious bodybuilding career.
