    Question Favourtie Bodybuilder

    Surprised that this question hasnt been asked, at least I couldnt find it anywhere on the forum.
    So I guess I'll take it upon myself to ask who you your favourite bodybuilder is/whose physique you looking up to?

    Personally, I got to say Arnold and Priest (in his earlier days).

    It's been asked before, but it has been awhile. I still like Flex's symetry among today's bodybuilders.

    You know what PT....i think you're right... He had basically a PERFECT body. It was flawless, nothing overpowered anything else...maybe back when BB wasn't all about 18iu's of growth and slin with every meal.

    Bill Pearl !!

    Pearl, Schwarzenegger, and Priest... always been my favorites. Im not a huge fan of the unrealistically drugged-up size of some of the guys around now. I'll give 'em props for what they have accomplished, but... I think Bill Pearl epitimizes the perfect body (without excessively large amounts of drugs or chemicals that should NOT be a part of BBing, ie. synthol. Get that shit outta here.)

    Gotta agree with Samoth.
    The BBers of the 60s-70s look much better aesthetically.

    Old school Arnold is the best. I feel he had the bets physique ever. Todays bodybuilders I don't like very much. If I had to choose some form today i like ruhl and shawn ray

    She's is pretty badass !!

    She placed 2nd to Lenda in 95 or 96 (I believe) and then disappeared. Last I heard she was ultra thin, very unhealthy and a member of a religious cult. Very sad, IMO she was next in line to rule the Ms. O. Kim Chizevsky came 5th in that same contest.

    Jenna...I would have thought your favorite bodybuilder was Big Kev

    This is VERY hard but i will go with my all time favorite
    Kevin Levrone , he is a role model for all to admire even after his parents death when he was young he over came it and became in many eyes the number 1 bodybuilder in the world also is well rounded with his own band which has fantastic songs ... He also has been able to obtain extreme mass with great symmetry and still has a tight waist i think kevins back is one of the best in the business and his posing is always great to watch.

    He may have a big ego , but his Guns will always be bigger.

    Favorite???

    Like samoth said - BB of the 60's and 70's, they are far more realistic. And not full fledged drug FREAKS that we have to day.

    BUT if we were to go for freaks... Umm flex for a balanced physique, and nice calves

    Umm El Nassur, yep just damn nice, except for hair loss(sup, it comes with the territory.

    AND THE #1 FREAK is Jean-Pierre-Fux !!!! HE HAS SOME FUCKING FREAKY MASS... happening!

    What, nobody liked Lou ďThe HulkĒ Ferrigno? Címon guys, I know he wasnít as successful as the Oak, but he practically paved the way for all of the big men of the sport. Shit, he gave Arnold a run for his money at 21 years old. Iím still convinced if he hadnít have retired to do ďBĒ rated movies and TV series that he could have gone a lot further. As far as Iím concerned he still should have won the 94í Masters against Robby Robinson. 6í5Ē 318lbs 3%bf!!! Distended gut or not! On the other hand though, Zane did have that perfect Vacuum stomach that you don't see anymore. Amongst todayís superfreaks though. I donít know, Iím still pretty partial to the aesthetic/proportional look and sorry guys no two ways about it that leaves Coleman OUT! Kinda liked the build of Kevin Levrone myself. Itís too bad that heís such a whiner. As for women, Iíve always been partial to Lenda Murray myself.

    I agree completely Kev that's why Lee Haney is the best ever. I like Dorian and Ronnie too. Also Sergio Oliva and Arnold not just for his perfect physique but also for all he's done for the sport.
