In 1977, body builder Lou Ferrigno gained national notoriety when he and Arnold Schwarzenegger were the subject of the documentary Pumping Iron, a chronicle of their preparation and rivalry in the Mr. Universe competition. Though Ferrigno lost, it launched a brief acting career on The Incredible Hulk. This documentary follows the 43-year former muscleman as he makes one last bid for body-building stardom as he once again hits the gym to prepare for the Masters of Olympia competition. Once again, he must cope with a rival. This time it is 48-year-old Boyer Coe, who never misses a chance to make catty comments about Ferrigno.
