flex. his posing was unique, and the dude was cocky. And I love that. Always came in super dry and close to 0% bodyfat as you could get.

Steve Reeves had the best natural body, but there is, was, and always will be only ONE ARNOLD. Simply amazing.

Looking at those pictures of the Olympia back in 72' and comparing them to today's Olympia, it's just simply amazing how far the sport has come since then. Night and day. Most of these guys would have a tough time qualifying for a pro card by today's standards. Sad, but true.

If you take a look at Reeves physique there isn't much that indicates steroid use...he's not a grossly huge..he's extremely well proportioned with superb symmetry throughout most of his career...his veins aren't popping out all over the place..no stretch marks on pecs or biceps...super full set of hair..etc. Even before his death he had a full set of hair and an amazing physique for his age. Put his picture and a picture of any of the current pro bodybuilders side to side and you'll see what steroid use and abuse looks like...Reeves would have been small in current pro bodybuilding standards. It's possible that Reeves might have used some steroids initially to gain the 30lbs of muscle in 1 year he talks about in his book. That smells of heavy bull**** without gear. He also stayed lean while gaining 30lbs of muscle in that 1 year.
A genetically gifted person with smart & hard and consistent training and a finely tuned diet can achieve Reeves physique but very few have the genetics to begin with to ever achieve this level of physique.

Seriously, looking at that pic of '72, there's no WAY Arnie wins. He's big allright, but Oliva is Bigger - OK not taller but his shoulders are WIDER and his waist NARROWER. Aesthetics, size, simmetry. Look at the guy's legs!! I put Oliva 1st, and 2nd is between Nubret and Arnie. I find Oliva untouchable in that contest.
But it was the '60s. Black people weren't exactly popular in that era.

im suprised no one has mentioned my favorite kevin levrone. sure his mind is somewhere out in pluto but his physique was simply phenomenal. he had the size of dorian with the conditioning/symmetry of flex all in one package.

it's a tie between Dorian and Arnold.
Personality and acheievements i'd say Arnold.
but for size, and actually structure, I'd say Dorian

I'd have to say Franco. I'm also a shorter guy (5'7") and think he has the perfect short man's build. To think he started out as a featherweight boxer, and then bulked up to the beast he was is amazing. Also, he had a very interesting personality. I get a kick of watching his parts in pumping iron. Seems like a really cool guy.
