ANDREW OYE'S IFBB LEGENDS REPORT: 'INCREDIBLE HULK,' IFBB PRO LOU FERRIGNO SERVES AS MOTIVATIONAL SPEAKER ON OVERCOMING DISABILITIES

The Scoop: Recently Announced: Hollywood TV and movie actor and retired IFBB Pro Lou Ferrigno will be a featured guest speaker at East Tennessee State University this week (October 21). In conjunction with Disability Awareness Month, the college's Disability Services and Multicultural Affairs groups organized a powerful, one-night event with Ferrigno, a disability advocate who will tell his heartfelt, motivational life story of growing up with a hearing impairment and how it impacted the pursuit of his two great passions: bodybuilding and acting.

"This forced me to maximize my own potential," says Ferrigno, recent MUSCLE INK Magazine Legends Series featured athlete. "I have to be better than the average person to succeed. That's why I chose bodybuilding. If I became a world champion, if I could win admiration from my peers, I could do anything."

The "So What?": Brooklyn-born Lou Ferrigno developed an ear infection as an infant that caused him to lose 85 percent of his hearing. Widely recognized for leading role on the TV series "The Incredible Hulk," Ferrigno once competed on bodybuilding stages at 6' 5" and 275-285 pounds and appeared in the groundbreaking 1977 documentary "Pumping Iron," alongside Mr. Olympia IFBB Pro Arnold Schwarzenegger (founder of the Arnold Sports Festival and Arnold Classic Championships). As reported in "Andrew Oye's Pro-Muscle Report," Ferrigno recently appeared at Joe Weider's Olympia Weekend, joining the founder of the International Federation of Bodybuilding & Fitness and the Olympia on stage at the 45th Anniversary Mr. Olympia celebration in Las Vegas (won by IFBB Pro Jay Cutler).  



Andrew Oye's Verdict: A 2-time Mr. Universe and 2003 IFBB Pro League Hall of Fame Inductee, Lou Ferrigno's latest speaking engagement represents a positive example of Pro Muscle in action that industry insiders always want to see more often. Among IFBB Pro League athletes, Ferrigno has a varied resume, which includes: 2nd place runner-up at the 1994 Masters Olympia; 1977 WSM World's Strongest Man competitor (alongside Mr. Olympia IFBB Pro Franco Columbu); a brief stint with WWE CEO Vince McMahon's former WBF World Bodybuilding Federation; and acting roles in the 80's films "Hercules" and "The Adventures of Hercules," as well as a 2009 comedy feature film.
