    No comparison. Too many advances in nutrition, diet and drugs.

    OOOOOOH yes what a great comparision use the smallest old time bb namely Zane and put his puny ass against todays biggest aka Ruhl thats the best way to highlight the difference as much as possible!!!!!!!!!

    New school all the way all old school was is new school with lagging parts in my opinion!
    You wana look like Zane shit with half decent genetics you can achieve that with a few lose dosed cycles yeah you may not be as ripped as him but you can get the mass.

    There are lot of guys at my gym that look like frank zane, you can always find them holding up the abb machines. Zane was great for his time.

    I rarely post but damn. Frank zane was godly. I'm just gonna post a little video clip instead of talking too much http://youtube.com/watch?v=ws4JA0226w4

    I can guarantee theres nobody in your gym that looks like him.

    Great link. Todays bbs are immense and incredible, but sometimes I think that the focus on ascetic symetry and proportion are overlooked today and sheer size is whats more respected now. I like Zane, and Nubret, they remind me of todays Flex and Mcquay who aren't quite as massive, but more pleasing ascetically.

    although i would much rather have the build of the old guys, it's amazing to see how far superior the new guys are.

    The new pros look great, don't get me wrong. I would rather have a physique like Arnold, Serge Nubret, or Zane. The post 80's frame frame that i would like to have is Milos Sarcev. I think he was larger than the "old Pros" but still carried the symmetrical, proportions asthetical look just with more mass.

    I think old is better but i like quality over quantity. Can u imagine ronnie coleman or jay cutler doing stomach vaccums? Yeah right! Their guts stick out past their chin yet get granted olympia titles. Gotta love the idea of bigger is better, not! Thats just me though.
