From The Bodybuilding Archives: Achim Albrecht: Whatever Happened To Him?

My goodness, how I could never go back to volume training -I was flipping through an old Muscle and Fitness magazine from the early 1990′s and was looking at an old idol of mine. He used to be one of my favorite bodybuilders when I was a teen -Achim Albrecht. I remember following his workouts -bad mistake!! Didn′t know any better when I was a teen.

Does anyone even know whatever happened to him, where he is today and what he′s been up to?? Just curious.

Achim was one of those IFBB guys that fled to the WBF and seemed to fade into obscurity after that. he was one big mo-fo no doubt. i recall his workouts were insanely high volume and he trained practically every day. i have no clue what he′s doing now.

Here′s a thread about him. It′s in German if anyone can read it.

Apparently he spent time in the WWF in the late 90′s. He was massive so Vince tried to make something out of him. Unfortunately he had no real talent and he was out of there pretty quickly. One poster thinks he had some kind of fling with Vince′s daughter; maybe even married for a brief period. Anyways, these guys don′t really know what happened to him either 🙁

Odd, I recall Achim Albrecht being more of a high-intensity trainer…

I′ve got a few articles about him. One of them was in Flex magazine from 1995 I believe and it was called "the forklift method" or something like that. He did about 2-3 exercises per muscle and only 2 working sets per exercise, with only minimal warm-up sets — much like Yates did in the late eighties/early nineties, before he switched to only 1 working set per exercise in 1992 (after his famous sessions with Mike).

Hmmmmmm, maybe he switched over after Yates′ success. I didnt buy a single muscle mag from about 92 to 98 so i only recall what i read when he first came on the scene. I′ll see if i can find something tonight. i still have my old Flex issues somewhere.
