Scott Wilson from start to finish.

Scott as very advanced teenager the late eighties
the early eighties

The late ninties
Scott was an incredible training partner, business partner,mentor and most of all, friend.I learned as much from my time with him than I have with just about anyone I've spent time with. The consumate professional I NEVER,EVER, EVER saw Scott cheat on his decided upon diet plan until Sunday, his cheat day.His discipline was PERFECT.

He would just want to smell the donuts I was eating and that was enough, lol!

That is until cheat day and WATCH OUT, it wasnt pretty.This guy was the epitome of the hard core professional bodybuilder during its golden era and NEVER got the acclaim he deserved, although he had more covers than anyone but arnold!He jsut couldnt pose for shit and never worked it at all although I begged him. He hated it and it showed. He shook and that looks like shit. Had he had had better body control he would have cleaned up. Oh yeah and if he hadn't advertised for the wrong supplement company, lol!

Scott's photos in one of Doc Darden's books are very good. Black and White Chris Lund Photos.

those were done right before I started training with him in 1984

What is he doing now?
I remember how impressed I was with his shoulder width and his look of raw power. Not every bodybuilder had that "rugged" look.

scott is still training and is working as a trainer in campbell ca.
he last competed in the Master Olympia in 2001 I beleive.
he looked rugged because he was. Scott did his fair share of powerlifting in the beginning.

I wondered if he powerlifted first, he defininatly had that "dry", dense, granite look.
His quads never fail to impress me either.

I remember seeing Scott, and you Mark, in Golds Gym San Jose. I would just be in awe everyday wondering how you get like that. the guy trained with, Dave Wallace, always talked crap. So Scott would relpy appropiately. One day (me being a stupid kid) I asked Scott how big his arms were. He replied, joking, "at least twice the size of yours." We laughed so hard. Awsome guy.

Hello.

My name is per gunnar olsen from norway.
I remember reading somewhere that in his early training he did 2 excersises per bodypart for 5 sets each of 10 - 15 reps to gain mass.
You have trained with him. Can you tell us about your training together.

Though I have not seen my Uncle Scott since I was 5 years old; he's still my uncle. Still blood. Wilson feuds were something I was unfortunately born into. I am 34 now and still remember him and have checked on his progress from time-to-time. His accomplishments make me smile and feel a sense of pride. Fact: Some of us Wilson's have great genes. And great potential. I have known my way around the gym since I was a kid. And hell no!! I do not do "zumba" classes. This girl has always been oldskool with the free weights! My efforts show more quickly than anyone I know. I attribute much of this to our DNA.
So Uncle Scott, if you ever see this...just know that Mickey's little girl remembers you; sends her love to you and yours; and challenges you to an arm wrestling contest!! Ha ha :)
All my love,
