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???)

arnold...cuz of the success that his figure has taken him to-->The Governator!
plus his accent is the best! I love when conan o'brian makes fun of him.

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

Serge, Frank, Arnold and Draper are all up there but my favorite is Olivia.

Franco Columbu. That rift in his chest is sick.

Casey Viator and Marvin Eder. The only one on that list I would vote for is Sergio.

The Chosen One
I vote for Zane also even though I'm a HUGE Arnie Fan.

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.
