    From a physique stand point I like Lee Labrada, Rich Gaspari, and Mike Mentzer. From a personality stand point, judging by what I've only seen on video and from heresay I'd say Arnold, Frank Zane, Phil Heath, and Rusty Jeffers.

    Personality for me goes to Victor Martinez. Talking about wanting to smoke blunts with Cormier and what not. He's hilarious. Arnold was the most charismatic by far in my opinion. I loved him as a bodybuilder, but wasn't a big fan of his as a "trans-partisan" governor.

    never been a real fan of the bb scene but of course have read and looked thru all the mags for years. if i were to pick a favorite it would be based on whos physique i would have wanted for myself it would be kevin levrone
    Noob looking for alot of guidance
    I've got a hold of some omnadren 250(is sustanon better?) and I'm pretty much clueless about steroids. All i know about it is that it easily aromatizes and it holds alot of water

    I like James Flex Lewis in that 212 division. I've met him before and his calves are ridiculous in person. His legs are like two thighs stacked ontop of each other.

    i havent heard him talking smack about other athletes, do u have a vid or link on utube? regardless i think hes just not afraid to speak his mind about the sport and where its heading, flex does it (i think hes even gone to the synthol side looking at his physique - shame really flex had it going on back in the day), Priest constantly does it, the only ones that really dont speak their mind are the ones who are looking for that majour deal, and have that whole mr olympia PR censorship going on, id rather someone spoke their mind about whatever their involved in then keeping their head down, spouting off some PR crap. Besides, most of the complaints are about the biased judging and how most "pros" need to look like a toad crossed with something you'd see in a reject bin at the Macdonalds beef processing plant - coleman, yates, warren, even greene (though he is one of the most inspirational speakers ive ever heard) all have or had that horrible "im a beef patty crossed with a cloud" look.

    Levrone talks smack in most of his post....levrone transformation.....

    pro bodybuilding made him somebody....steroids and gh helped him achive that superbody....they all use...so why trash them now....he was the same...

    I agree he should have won the olympia

    For me it's gotta be Andy Haman first, then Troy Alves and Phil Heath. I've had the opportunity to meet with each of these pros and talk with them and they were all really down to earth and cool. Phil Heath came as a spectator to my last show and I got to take some pics and talk with him. Troy Alves has a great physique without the too common turtle belly like Kai has and which has become way too prolific in pro bb'ing. I've had the opportunity to work out with Andy Haman and I love how likes to goof around and make going to the gym fun instead of just a job or chore to get done.

    Andy seems like a pretty cool guy to hang with, but I was a little put off by his behavior on one particular forum. He can be very obstinate over his opinions on various things related to lifting. Still, I think he's one of the good guys out there.

    Huh, that's odd. I can see him sticking to his ways. I've also seen him go over and help out people in the gym that were struggling with something and give them advice. He's been very approachable in public which is what I like. I first met him on a plane when he sat right in front of me a few years ago. Didn't even realize we lived in the same place.

    my top top 5 in the aesthetics:
    1. Serge Nubret
    2. Arnold
    3. Kevin Levrone
    4. Shawn Ray
    5. Phil Heath

    Though i must say the most inspirational bodybuilder would have to be Kai Greene; his way with words is really inspiring and despite the grapefruit incident he's still one of my favourite pro's.

    yeah he'd have to tie with Kev, though i think it was '99 or '01 where kev came in with the smallest wasitline ive seen since the 80's era, combined that with his humongous delts + tri's he got that 3rd place from me, he honestly should have the olympia with that physique but then it was all about who had the biggest back regardless how bloated your abs looked (ie yates and coleman winning so many times no matter how bloated they looked).

    Kai's interviews sound like he's always on LSD. Nonetheless, one of my faves as well.
