    The 70's and early 80's were great, remember the grand prix events where you had IFBB competitions in each state almost..

    I like 70's Arnolds era, maby even some of the 80's, not because of the bodies, but because of the fact that those guys were probably the healthiest, and even they dont all look good like Arnold now. I just can imagine though that dudes like Jay Cutler, Phil Heath, Markus Ruhl, Kai Green walking around with grey hair for too long.

    pretty much all the years stopping at 2000's. The guy's today get too lean, too many veins, etc. They dont appear healthy.

    Great legends from every era, but my opinion is that it keeps getting better each year.

    Yeah, you're probably right but like anything else people tend to go with the era that they were most into it

    I kinda like some of the freaks of today. Just crazy what some of em bring.

    I am partial to the 90s though, especially around the time when Ronnie won his first Olympia. Guys like Shawn Ray, Flex Wheeler, hard to believe they never won one. Ronnie's first wins had the best physique IMO.

    I really like the 70s and 80s era.. They just seemed to of had so much fun with their competitiveness but were all friends training and pushing eachother @ the same time. Plus they were big but they still looked human lol. I'm not knocking the guys today I'm just saying that some of us can relate more to the old school bodybuilders

    And they actually seemed to work harder. The guys today probably cant workout that much becuase the the stuff their on is too strong and they'd die.
