I'm a little confused. The thread is entitled "favorite bodybuilder....", but the poll is called "best bodybuilder.....". I voted for Arnold. He is my favorite bodybuilder of all time, I think because he is more than just a bodybuilder. Most of these guys, I've seen pictures and maybe read some interviews, but they still seem distant. I really don't know what they are like, their personalities, etc. Arnold has so much exposure, you kind of get a feel for who he really is. And whether you love or hate him or his views. I respect the hell out of him. He came on the scene a young immigrant that could barely speak English and he actually became a pretty big name in movies. Damn! Now the Gov deal. He is truly an inspiration to me. Talk about overcoming hurdles to accomplish your dreams. And all the while, he's always seemed human.... he makes/made mistakes and admits them. I don't know if I would vote for him as best bodybuilder though. That one I'll have to think on a bit.

(.......trying to gain some self-confidence.)
okay. For real; Sergio for sickest looking/proportions. Arnold for pure overall impact and historical BB perspective/most incredible story, and Lee Haney for old school award. (Is picking 3 cheating???)

Rich Gaspari is my favorite. Not a particular fan of his supp. company, but as a bodybuilder he was awesome.

Serge Nubret looked awesome in Pumping Iron. But I like Frank Zane for his quality over quantity style and conditioning.

I went for yates. Although his messed up bicep sucked, he changed BBing forever and was the best of the mass monsters--he kept a decent waist and was HUGE before any of them were BIG

Yep Yates is a legend. He's why I started bodybuilding seriously. Alot of people don't like his type of physique, but to pack that much dry muscle on a frame is awe inspiring. He changed bbing just like ronnie has the last couple of years.Originally Posted by kwyckemynd00

just to throw this out there .. as far as i'm aware sergio oliva is the only bodybuilder to ever have a better than 2:1 chest to waist ratio 60 inch chest - 29 inch waist
i could be wrong about him being the only one but that's still unbelievably impressive

I don't think you are. Plus A. Jones said that Sergio had the largest arms he had ever measured...including Arnold.Originally Posted by glenihan

I voted for Arnold b/c he was awesome and without him bodybuilding may not be what it is today.
Three other names I'll throw out that I haven't seen yet: Ferrigno, Lee Priest (great arms- altho it helps being 5'2), Mike Katz (awesome chest)

Shawn Ray....best freaking shape, symmetry, size, lines, conditioning,etc.....he had it all in the perfect proportions....today's Frank Zane with rounder muscle bellies....he is highly underrated in my opinion....I just bought a Muscle & Fitness and he is doing an ad for Vyotech and I freaked out after not having seen him in anything for like 3 years....LOVE HIS PHYSIQUE, nuff said!
