He was asked to guest pose at the Mr. Olympia in 1981 and 1986 for Arnold Schwarzenegger and Jim Lorimer and the 1983 Mr. Olympia in Munich, Germany for Albert Busek. In his interview with the Bodybuilding Legends Podcast, Russ talks about his experiences posing all around the world for the last four decades and some of the iconic figures he met in the bodybuilding world.
