L.A. Bodybuilding Legend
One of the biggest, strongest bodybuilders of the 1980's that you probably never heard of. Known as a mass-monster during the "Classic Physique" era, Monson was an unheard of 272-pounds of chiseled granite during competition at a time when a 230-pound bodybuilder was considered large. In fact, Arnold Schwartzenegger won seven Mr. Olympia titles at "6-2" weighing 235 with "22" inch arms. Monson, also at "6-2" was 37-pounds heavier with arms measuring 23-1/4 and was considerably stronger.
Once the leader and creator of a gang called the Avenues on the Eastside of South Central Los Angeles, Monson would eventually turn his life around and become an International Amature Bodybuilding Superstar.
