WORLD BODYBUILDING ENCYCLOPEDIA.

1987 INTERNATIONAL CONTEST „WHITE NIGHTS“.

Preparing the 2-d book of the „World Bodybuilding Encyclopedia“ (“Энциклопедия всемирного культуризма») we will publish some separate historical articles of that time (1973 – 1991).

To participate as a guest at the 1986 historic „Amber Prix International“ («Янтарный приз», “Gintarinis prizas”, 1968 – 2023, Klaipeda, Republic Lithuania) DSC. EDMUNDAS DAUBARAS (Др. Эдмундас Даубарас) invited from Leningrad (Russian Federation) a former famous U.S.S.R. bodybuilder VLADIMIR DUBININ (Владимир Дубинин). After loosing at the 1974 „Georg Tenno Memorial“ («Мемориал Георга Тенно», 1971 – 1989, Tallinn, Estinian SSR) VLADIMIR DUBININ stopped participating at competitions and did not appear at the International events. When the 1986 „Amber Prix International“ ended the VIP International bodybuilding persons came together to the appartments of DSc. EDMUNDAS DAUBARAS in Klaipeda. The reason was to discuss the plans of the future development of bodybuilding sport in the U.S.S.R. and Socialist Countries and to start the new „U.S.S.R. Bodybuildin Federation“. At the meeting participated: a well known U.S.S.R. bodybuilder VLADIMIR DUBININ, since 1975 representing Russian Federation at the International events VLADIMIR SUBOV (Владимир Шубов, Moscow), 1985-1986 International contest organizer in Ukraine ARKADIJ KASANSKIJ (Аркадий Кашанский, Charkov, Ukrainian SSR) and the historic „Amber Prix“ organizer DSc. EDMUNDAS DAUBARAS. At that time DSc. EDMUNDAS DAUBARAS was the only one among the U.S.S.R. bodybuilding leadres who perfectly knew several foreign languages. Also foreign situation was discussed as DSc. EDMUNDAS DAUBARAS was in touch with the I.F.B.B. (International Federation of Body Builders) President BEN WEIDER, the  W.A.B.B.A. (World Amateur Body Building Association) President SERGE NUBRET (Serge Nubret) and the N.A.B.B.A. (National Amateur Body Building Association) President OSCAR HEIDENSTAM.  

Note: during the prohibition of bodybuilding in the U.S.S.R. and Socialist Countries the „Amber Prix International“ was the only one regularly organized International Bodybuilding competition in the Socalist World. Later the U.S.S.R. Ministry of Sport (U.S.S.R. Goskomsport, Госкомспорт С.С.С.Р.) recognized the „Amber Prix“ as the „unofficial U.S.S.R. Bodybuilding Championship“ (неофициальный чемпионат С.С.С.Р. по культуризму) and started presenting to the „Amber Prix“ Champions the title of the „U.S.S.R. Sport Master“ («Мастер спорта С.С.С.Р.»).

At the 1986 International meeting in Klaipeda participants discussed the starting of the new U.S.S.R. Bodybuilding Federation“ («Федерация С.С.С.Р. по культуризму»). VLADIMIR DUBININ preposed the organize in Leningrad the International „White nights“ contest along with the „Amber Prix International“ and „Georg Tenno Memorial“.

„WHITE HIGHTS“.

In 1987 VLADIMIR DUBININ organized the International „White Nights“ competition as it was decided in Klaipeda. The contest was held at the still prestigeous in Russia  „Leningrad Palace Oktiabrskij“ («Дворец Октябрьский»). Bodubuilders of various U.S.S.R. Republics participated at the event.

1987. USSR BODYBUILDING FEDERATION.

WORLD BODYBUILDING HISTORY.

1987 KUBENKA. NEW „U.S.S.R. BODYBUILDING FEDERATION“.

Bodybuilding in the U.S.S.R. and Socialist Countries was prohibited since 1973. Finally in 1987 bodybuilding was officially recognized in the U.S.S.R. and a new „U.S.S.R. Bodybuilding Federation“ («Федерация культуризма С.С.С.Р.») was established as it was planned by several persons in 1986. Then those persons after 1986 „Amber Prix International“ (“Gintarinis prizas”, «Янтарный приз», 1968 – 2023) came together at the appartments of DSc. EDMUNDAS DAUBARAS in Klaipeda (Lithuanian SSR, full article on this meeting is on International Site www.wff.lt ). At that time the „U.S.S.R. Ministry of Sport“ („Министерство спорта С.С.С.Р.», «Госкомспорт С.С.С.Р.“) was led by the Minister ALEKSANDR KOLESOV (Александр Колесов). Official recognition of bodybuilding needed several formal steps: the meeting of the U.S.S.R. bodybuilders to set a new „U.S.S.R. Bodybuilding Federation“, to set Chairmen and establish Committees.

Before the 1987 meeting of the U.S.S.R. bodybuilders in Kubenka two important International Contests were held. That were the 1987 „Amber Prix International“ (Klaipeda) and the „White Nights“ («Белые ночи», Leningrad, R.S.F.S.R.) competitions. It was the last time in 1987 when the „Amber Prix International“ was run as the „Unofficial U.S.S.R. Bodybuilding Championship“ («неофициальный чемпионат С.С.С.Р. по культуризму»). It lasted since 1978 in Klaipeda. The official representative of the „U.S.S.R. Ministry of Sport“ VALERIJ TAMARLAKOV (Валерий Тамарлаков) was present at the 1987 „Amber Prix International“. Also another Contest was run in Leningrad and it was the „White Nights“.

On August 11, 1987  the meeting of the U.S.S.R. bodybuilders was set in Kubenka (R.S.F.S.R. Moscow region). Representatives of eleven Socialist Republics participated at the event. Instead of the old formal „U.S.S.R. Bodybuilding Federation“ («Комиссия атлетической гимнастики С.С.С.Р.») representatives of Leningrad City VLADIMIR DUBININ (Владимир Дубинин) and VASILIJ CAIKOVSKIJ (Василий Чайковский) preposed to create a new „U.S.S.R. Bodybuilding Federation“.  The old one did not preforme any noticable work so new changes were needeed. We would like to remind that in 1978 DSc. EDMUNDAS DAUBARAS wrote bodybuilding defending petition and presented it to the highest U.S.S.R. political institutions, including the „U.S.S.R. Central Committee of Communist Party“ («Центральный комитет коммунистической партии С.С.С.Р.»). This gave possibilities of prosecution of bodybuilding be not so strong. This way in 1979 the old and formal  „U.S.S.R. Bodybuilding Federation“ was set at the „U.S.S.R. Weightlifting Federation“ («Федерация тяжёлой атлетики С.С.С.Р.»). It was led by a R.S.F.S.R. weightlifter Chairman ROMAN MOROZ (Роман Мороз). The Secretary of the old federation was ROMANAS KALINAUSKAS. In fact ROMAN MOROZ was fare away from bodybuilding and ROMANAS KALINAUSKAS did the work alone himself. There were no possibilities to do any normal work as bodybuilding it the U.S.S.R. was prohibited.

The Chairmen of the new „U.S.S.R. Bodybuilding Federation“ were ellected at the 1987 meeting in Kubenka. The influence of weightlifting still was evident and the first President of the federation became a famous R.S.F.S.R. weighlifter Olympic Champion JURIJ VLASOV (Юрий Власов). Basing on his popularity JURIJ VLASOV did all formal paper work for the new federation. Two Vice Chairmen of the „U.S.S.R. Bodybuilding Federation“ were ellected: VASILIJ CAIKOVSKIJ and ROMANAS KALINAUSKAS. The Secretary of the federation was chosen the Official of the „U.S.S.R. Ministry of Sport“ VALERIJ TAMNARLAKOV.

Along with the meeting in Kubenka two seminars were held. First one was of ROMANAS KALINAUSKAS. He told bodybuilders about the „supplements“, their positive and negative sides. Also he told how he overused them and this way spoiled his health. Since that time he can not train anymore now.

Another seminar was done by a contemporary poet and drama writter VITALIJ ASOVSKIJ (Виталий Асовский). He represented the famous „Vilnius Bodybuilding School“ («Вильнюсская школа культуризма»). The School was established in middle of sixties of the last Century  by a talanted trainer CESLAV TAMULEVIC (Чеслав Тамулевич, 1945 – 2023, in 2019 awarded with the „International Honour Silver Medal“ by the International President of W.F.F. – W.B.B.F. DSc. EDMUNDAS DAUBARAS). For two decades the representatives of the „Vilnius Bodybuilding School“ were among top U.S.S.R. bodybuilders. VITALIJ ASOVSKIJ replaced the Chairman when in 1980 due to illness CESLAV TAMULEVIC left bodybuilding. In Kubenka VITALIJ ASOVSKIJ told bodybuilders about posing, routines. He classified all poses of bodybuilders and presented the programmes on stage himself. At that time Soviet Bodybuilding was much higher in level if compared to today‘s primitiveness... Soviet Bodybuilding was SPORT!

2024. NO OTHER INTERNATIONAL BODYBUILDING FEDERATION HAS IT‘S OWN MAGAZINE, BUT W.F.F. – W.B.B.F..

WORLD BODYBUILDING HISTORY.

Today  the W.F.F. – W.B.B.F. (World Fitness Federation, World Body Building Federation)  International unites 140 Country – Members and organizes every year nearly 60 anual Am and Pro International Events World Wide. Looking from the juridic point of view the W.F.F. – W.B.B.F. International is no doubt the Real World Bodybuilding Leader.

W.F.F. – W.B.B.F. International started issuing the International Magazines in various languages in 1989. The W.F.F. – W.B.B.F. Magazines are spread free of charge during the most important International Sport Events World Wide and also in all Country-Members of the Federation. The Magazines can be found in many basic State Libraries. Once the German Leizig State Library addressed the W.F.F. – W.B.B.F. International asking the Federation Magazines for the readers.

We would like to underline that no other known International Bodybuilding Sport Organization has it‘s own International Magazine, but the W.F.F. – W.B.B.F..

Not long ago the Sport Ministry Lithuania informed the W.F.F. – W.B.B.F. International that the W.F.F. – W.B.B.F. Magazines will be  Representing sport of Republic Lithuania Internationally.

ARNOLD SCWARZENEGGER RECOMMENDS

The first W.F.F. – W.B.B.F. International Magazine (1989) was the famous methodical issue „Arnold Scwarzenegger Recommends“ („Арнольд Шварценеггер рекомендует»). At that time many East Europe Bodybuilders were short of the methodical knowlidge and that was the reason of the 2 000 000 sucessfull issues of the magazine. The „Arnold Scwarzenegger Recommends“ bacame the real „Cathekizmus“ for most bodybuilders of that time. It was spread in the countries of former U.S.S.R. and East Europe. Several generations of today‘s bodybuilders grew up under these magazines.

WORKING PUBLISHING GROUP

The W.F.F. – W.B.B.F. working publishing group is led by the Member International Journalist Association the International W.F.F. – W.B.B.F. President DSc EDMUNDAS DAUBARAS. For the period of the last 30 years the W.F.F. – W.B.B.F. International published 37 International Magazines under various names in various languages.

GERMAN LEIPZIG STATE LIBRARY.

Our magazines You can find easy at any State Library of Lithuania. Several years ago German State Leipzig Library addressed the W.F.F. – W.B.B.F. International asking to send them our magazines. So we did then.

WORLD BODYBUILDING  ENCYCLOPEDIA

Crowning it‘s sixty years of  International Bodybuilding activities, the W.F.F. – W.B.B.F.  works on the Unique Global International Bodybuilding Project -  the „World Bodybuilding  Encyclopedia“ («Энциклопедия всемирного культуризма»). 

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.

WORLD BODYBUILDING HISTORY.

SOCIALIST COUNTRIES BODYBUILDING LITERATURE.

Before the prohibition of bodybuilding in the middle of the sixties of the last century in all Socialist World Countries  the only one regular magazine about bodybuilding sport was Polish „Sport Dla Wszystkich“. At that time Lithuanians presented the basics of bodybuilding in the magazine „The Student“(„Moksleivis“).

Through the time of the prohibition of bodybuilding sport in the Socialist Countries nobody even dreamed about the bodybuilding literature. The exception was in Czechoslovakia Bratislava issued  „Trener“ Magazine and the German D.D.R. (Deutsches Demokratik Republik)  Weight Lifting Magazine „The Weightlifter‘s Training“ ( „Schwer Atlet Training“) which started to publish some information about our sport. During this time DSc. EDMUNDAS DAUBARAS  used to give articles and contest information for these Magazines. Also for BEN WEIDER‘S „Flex“ magazine. All magazines used to publishe the DSc. EDMUNDAS DAUBARAS given materials. First of all it was information from the World‘s Oldest Traditional Bodybuilding Contest, the only one anual International Bodybuilding Event in all Socialist Counties, the „Amber Prix International“ („Gintarinis prizas“, „Янтарный приз», 1968-2023). The above mentioned Czechoslovakia „Trener“ Magazines were published by JOZEF MAZAK and later by MILAN PERDOCH.

International W.F.F. – W.B.B.F. worked and still works on the documents and various materials of World‘s Bodybuilding History. The W.F.F. – W.B.B.F. „Sport of Fitness and Bodybuilding“ Magazine started in English, Russian and Lithuanian languages in 1989. During this period of time the W.F.F. – W.B.B.F. printed and spread through the World several millions copies of the Magazine. „Sport of Fitness and Bodybuilding“ is awailable at the National W.F.F. – W.B.B.F. federations in all 140 Country - members of the W.F.F. - W.B.B.F. International as well as at the most important World‘s International Bodybuilding and Fitness Events.
Main articles of the „Sport of Fitness and Bodybuilding“ Magazine were published in various Internet Pages, sport and public media, among them regularly in Spanish „Fitness Alive“ (Argentina, Magazine for South America and Spain), in German „Fitness News“ (Austria, Magazine for Germany, Austria and Switzerland), in English „Strenght and Health“ (UK, Magazine for England, Scotland and Ireland), in Russian „Zeleznyj Mir“ (Russia, for Russia and Post Soviet Russian Speaking Countries and etc..).
At the beginning a number of the W.F.F. – W.B.B.F. Magazines were of methodical character. These Magazines were teaching the bodybuilders how to train from the primityve beginning to the Top Professional Level. Through decades the President W.F.F. – W.B.B.F. International DSc. EDMUNDAS DAUBARAS collected and translated materials and documents from different possible sources, analised, evaluated and systemized them and finally presented as methodical recommendations for the sportsmen. That were a number of popular International Seria Magazines under the titles like “ARNOLD SCHWARZENEGGER recommends”, “Training Programs of the World’s Best Bodybuilders”, “Bodybuilding Stars Recommend” etc..). Ending the 90-ties of the last century basing on these Magazines a number of new generations of bodybuilders were born and educated. Wishing to have these Magazines in their collections the libraries of a number of Countries addressed the International W.F.F. – W.B.B.F. Headquarters (like German State Library of Leipzig, Germany).
Today the W.F.F. – W.B.B.F. „Sport of Fitness and Bodybuilding“ („Sportinis fitnesas ir kultūrizmas“, „Спортивный фитнес и культуризм») magazine has only informative International character but this makes it to be even more important. The Magazine covers most important World‘s Bodybuilding and Fitness Events and it gives true situation of sport on Official International Level, sets the goals of the sport for the future. Nobody else in the World does it, but the W.F.F. – W.B.B.F..
