He was 85.
Weider and his older brother Joe founded the International Federation of Body Building in 1940, and spent six decades promoting the sport once "reviled" as a "fringe activity," according to a statement by Weider Health and Fitness.
"Beginning in 1947, Ben travelled the world, promoting his sport, organizing exhibitions and competitive events," it said.
"At the height of Cold War tensions, he courted sports officials of militantly anti-Western regimes in the then-Soviet Union and Communist China," it added.
The brothers set up fitness centers, sold weight-lifting equipment and promoted nutritional supplements for body builders.
Ben Weider also pushed to have body-building included in the Olympics, but it achieved only provisional status in 1998.
For his efforts, Weider was awarded in 1975 the Order of Canada, the nation's highest civilian honor, and later became an officer of the order.
He also co-authored one of the best selling history books about Napolean, earning him the French Legion of Honor for his investigative work into the French leader's death.
Next week, a collection of his Napoleonic artifacts are to be unveiled in a permanent gallery at the Montreal Museum of Fine Arts.
Weider's funeral will be held Monday in Montreal.

their knee and came to me looking for some tips and tricks
for getting a good leg workout without causing excess pain
and strain to their injured knee.
Working around aches and pains is a common problem that
we all face from time to time, and if you haven't had any
injuries or joint pain yet, you probably will later on
down the road.
So I've put together a quick training video demonstrating
some leg exercises that you can do that will work the
muscles hard but are very therapeutic on sore joints.
Call in and get your exercise and nutrition related questions answered live on the air.

We had a few technical glitches with my Internet connection. So I didn't get a recording of the very beginning or the very end of the show. But I did get the "meat and potatoes" portion of the show. I'm planning on getting a new faster modem before our next show, so hopefully we won't have any more connection problems.
On a good note we had a record number of viewers, each show there are more and more people joining in to watch so I’m very pleased with that.
Please leave me a comment and let me know what you like about the show, what could be improved, what topics you'd like to see covered, etc. Your feedback is very important and it would help out a lot if you could take a minute now and leave me a quick comment.

You'll notice that they all have one thing in common...They have NO body hair...How can this be? They don't actually shave... do they?
Nah, not these guys... there is no way these massive mountains of muscle, the same ones you'll see bench pressing compact cars as a warm up set, will ever stoop to the level of bending over the edge of the bathtub with a can of shaving cream and razor in hand scraping away the hairs on their legs like a little school girl...!?!?
But the harsh reality of bodybuilding is that they DO!!!

We had our first "test show" this past Monday, it was open just for members on the Total Fitness Bodybuilding Forum and I must say it went really well. We got some good live Q and A going.
What I'm planning on doing in the future is having a live talk show once or twice per week so we can cover various aspects of training, nutrition, supplements, etc. and share some practical tips and tricks that you can apply right away to help you build a leaner, stronger, and more muscular body.
Tonight's show (Oct. 2) will focus primarily on beginners weight training, some of the most common mistakes that beginners make, dispelling training myths, etc.
As we progress through the shows we'll dive deeper into more specific and advanced training and nutrition techniques for building muscle, burning bodyfat, increasing strength, etc. But for now we'll start with the basics.
This show is scheduled for 1 hour and starts at:
8:00 pm Eastern Standard Time
7:00 pm Central Standard Time
6:00 pm Mountain Standard Time
5:00 pm Pacific Standard Time
And for outside North America:
10:00 am in Australia
1:00 am in UK
