    Old School Posing:

    Howcome bodybuilders today don't do these kinds of poses anymore? This has been my all-time favorite. Did Arnold invent this pose?

    Seems to me that back then they portrayed bodybuilding as a work art, like the Greek Gods. Now they see it as muscle, muscle, and more veiny muscle.

    I agree. It was an art back then, now it is a freak show. They actually had an art show that was only bodybuilders on rotating platforms. I think it was in pumping iron but it might have been in raw iron (the making of pumping iron.)

    in the 25th , they were standing up on boxes and rotating round when they were posing, which i think made it look like an art form.

    some of the old school posings unreal. pumping iron is my all time favourite. the music cracks me up.

    Not a big Zane fan. His physique never really did it for me, and i found his posing rather average. Bob Paris could outpose him anyday, as could samir and many others. I think Zanes reputation precedes him.

    I like the old school size as well. Maybe becuase it seems more reachable (im dreaming). Now days it seems like a game of how many drugs you can use year round and not kill yourself.
