VENICE, CA -- The muscle beach championship bodybuilding competition went on Monday, despite the triple-digit heat wave blanketing southern California.
Fans and competitors gathered at Venice Beach for the contest and to honor fitness icon Jack LaLanne with a lifetime achievement award.
The annual competition, as well as its location, is known as the grassroots soul of bodybuilding.
Honoree Jack LaLanne expressed his life-long belief in the value of exercise and nutrition.
"This is the moment," said LaLanne. "This controls the next moment. That's why all you people should be exercising on a regular basis. Put the right fuel in this human machine and you'll live long and healthy and sexy!."
