Lou Ferrigno Tribute Page
Lou Ferrigno Picture
Lou Ferrigno was born in Brooklyn New York on November 9, 1951. As a baby he lost 75 percent of his from a very bad ear infection, this caused his to be very introverted as a child and he would often just stay in the house and read comic books and dream of being strong and muscular.
At 13 years old he discovered bodybuilding and began training with weight in his basement which he gradually expended into a full gym with benches, weights, leg press, etc. He later joined R & J health studio and learned even more about bodybuilding.
Lou was known as a teenage wonder, and grew to 6'5" tall and 275 pounds by the time he was in his early twenties. Many felt that Lou could beat the great Arnold Schwarzenegger for the Mr. Olympia title.
Low won the following contests:
WBBG Pro Mr. America 1971
IFBB Mr. America 1973
IFBB Mr. Universe 1973
IFBB Mr. International 1974
IFBB Mr. Universe 1974
In 1976 when he was training for the Mr. Olympia contest which everyone felt he would win, he got an offer to play the Incredible Hulk on TV. He took the offer and this started his acting career, which included playing Hercules, Sinbad, and many more action and comedic roles.
