At the moment the WFF-WBBF (World Fitness Federation, World Body Building Federation)  is preparing to publish a historical article. The article will cover fifty years lasting relations of the WFF-WBBF International (represented by the International President DSc. EDMUNDAS DAUBARAS) and the IFBB (International Federation of Body Builders), represented by the IFBB owners WEIDER brothers JOE and BEN.

Today looking through the time passed we see clearly the World bodybuilding history. As for long time the World was divided into two parts this history was developed both in the „West“ side and also in the so called „Socialist World“.  Speaking about the DSc. EDMUNDAS DAUBARAS and the WEIDER brother‘s relations any can easy see the development of all historically traditional bodybuilding federations. Also we can see the aims of all federations, we can see the real work that was done by these federations on International level. Then there is no need to discuss „which federation is better“.


Today the WFF-WBBF International unites 134 Country – Members and organizes nearly 60 anual Am and Pro International Events World Wide. Looking from the juridic point of view the WFF-WBBF International is no doubt the Real World Bodybuilding Leader.

Crowning it‘s 50 years of  International Bodybuilding activities, the WFF-WBBF)  works on the Unique Global International Bodybuilding Project -  the „World Bodybuilding  Encyclopedia“ («Энциклопедиявсемирногокультуризма»)

Covering the period of the last Century only two Historical Bodybuilding  Country – Articles –Revues are left to prepere. That are Atricles on Russia and Lithuania. All other Countries that were influencing the International Sport during the last 120 years are already written bu us for the Encyclopedia.

The Head of the Encyclopedia working group is the President WFF-WBBF International DSc. EDMUNDAS DAUBARAS.

Until now nobody even tried to work on such a huge International Project. To be frank, only few people can do it. There were attempts to name some previous works as „Encyclopedia“ too, but that were not Encyclopedias of Bodybuilding Sport in real (for example, as Arnold Schwarzenegger‘s „Encyclopedia“ was written about himself in person mostly). In real every Encyclopedia covers much wider things.

The  „World Bodybuilding  Encyclopedia“  is based on the fivety years collected Historic Archives of the WFF-WBBF International and also on the Archivic Documents presented to us by the Owner and the President of WABBA (World Amateur Body Building Association) SERGE NUBRET (France),  the Heads of the UK Public Club NABBA (National Amateur Body Building Association) OSCAR HEIDENSTAM (England) and IVAN DUNBAR (Ireland), the Owners and Heads of the IFBB (International Federation of Body Builders)  Commercial Company  BEN WEIDER (Canada), PAUL CHUA (Singapore), ALEX BAUER (Austria), JOSE PARDO HIDALGO (Spain).

Starting with EUGENY SANDOW our „Encyclopedia of Modern Bodybuilding“ covers the period of nearly 120 years time. It presents over 8000 known International Bodybuildings Sport Personalities who were very important for the World Bodybuilding Sport during the period of the last Century. All these 8000 Bodybuilding Persons are representing all historically known traditional International Bodybuilding Federations. Comparing with the Bodybuilding Encyclopedia made by USA Bodybuilding Organizers in Internet, our „World Bodybuilding  Encyclopedia“ covers 90% wider information than the one of the USA.

All Athletes of these Federations of the last 120 years, who took high places at the Official Competitions as the World and Continent Am and Pro Championships, are in our Encyclopedia. All known International Officials and Organizers are also in our Encyclopedia as well.

Our  „World Bodybuilding  Encyclopedia“ will be published in various popular languages, including the Chinese language.


We would like to underline that  the 2017 year was an extraordinary year for the World‘s bodybuilding. In 2013 the International Sport Society was celebrating 50-th anniversaryof the World‘s Oldest Traditional Bodybuilding Contest  „Amber Prix International“ (международный турнир „Янтарныйприз», 1968-2017). 

In 2018 the International Sport Society was celebrating the 120-th anniversary of the first bodybuilding contest ever (held in 1898 in England and Russia). Also in 1898 in England the first Bodybuilding „Health and Strenght“  Magazine was started to issue and it is issued until now by ROY EDWARDS.

In 2017 the International Sport Society was celebrating the 90-th anniversary of female  fitness. It is connected with BRONE‘s DUBAR  regular trainings and participation in New York City in 1928. We are glad that the Americans started collecting additional historic  information about BRONE DUBAR for the coming „Encyclopedia of Modern Bodybuilding“. BRONE DUBAR with her family emigrated from Lithuania to the USA right before the First World War.
