Favorite Pro of All time

  1. Favorite Pro of All time


    If you had to choose one pro, who would be your favorite all time pro bodybuilder?

    Many things to consider, physique, training style, personality, and accomplishments.


  2. I was thinking bout making a thread similar to this recently. Although I love kai, Coleman, Yates there personality n work ethics are what stands out to me.

    However my favorite bodybuilder as far as physic goes is Dexter Jackson. He has tiny little waist n muscles that just pop like no other. IMO the only Guy to win the O who doesn't look Idk like a freak, like Ronnie, Yates, n Cutler do. With there huge waist n hgh baby bellies.

  3. Well Stated, My favorite happens to be Kevin Levrone. Like Dexter he had similar aesthetics, a small waist with an excellent taper, great separation and detail. Levrone wasn't a mass monster like Ronnie or Kai and that's also why I liked him. I respect all of the mass monster pro bodybuilders nowadays but my physique does'nt have much relation to them. I relate better to the Levrone and Dexter type of physique. I also had the pleasure of meeting him and he is one of the most down to earth bodybuilders and that is saying a lot because i've met a fair number of pros and most of them were really cool.

    I like many other bodybuilders as well but if I had to choose one it would be Levrone.

    Yea I been watching his new videos of him coming back per say with out the juice though. Seems like a cool Guy.

  5. I didn't know he's trying to come back. I do know he has just started his own supplement company, I don't know if the products are any good though. Nowadays every pro is starting their own supplement company.

    He's not trying to compete just get in good shape

  7. Bob Paris. Most proportionate and aesthetically pleasing male physique ever in the BB world. Not a monster or a freak like so many are nowadays.
    Gladys Portugues, as far as the ladies go. Her ass was an absolute work of art.

  8. Mike Mentzer for the men.

    Dana Linn Bailey for the ladies.

  9. Mike Mentzer was the man, he had one of the unique hard and grainy dry physiques that not too many pros have. In his prime it looked like he was carved of stone.

    I also liked that he had his own distinct posing routine and distinct training style using his HIT super slow training.

    ...and also the most important part- that damn mustache

  10. carrot top

  11. seriously frank zane and lee p

  12. Lee Priest, pre-facial tattoo and Kevin Levrone.

  13. Gotta go with Arnold...because his sym. is pretty much ideal. Great shape in his prime

  14. Kai Greene is pretty awesome !

  15. tough question. its between Mentzer, Haney, Yates, and Zane. Arnold is the man but i cant say him because of the encyclopedia of modern bodybuilding....he just lied to everyone. Mentzer and Dorian told people the truth. i wear the Mentzer heavy Duty shirt all the time haha. my favorite physiques are classic bodybuilders from larry scotts time through frank zanes. but Iv learned the most from Dorian Yates and gonn have to go with him. Haney was a badass though

  16. Arnold, Zane,Ronnie
    T2

  17. Kevin Levrone - love this guy

    I find Kai Greene extremely impressive. It is incredibly difficult to become a IFBB pro, it is almost impossible becoming a pro-bodybuilder without a stable financial structure. Kai Greene came from the street and now he is a top three Olympia contender. I give this man his props.

    Kai has a great backstory for sure and he's one of the more entertaining posers.

    Phil Heath is the champ now, and he's more of a throw back to the aesthetic physiques of yesteryear.

    Small waist was the physique of the golden era no huge tumor like abs! And the vacuum pose was part of the routine. Guys now days can't even attempt the vacuum.

    The vacuum pose has always been weird to me, I never fully understood what sucking in your stomach proved. I don't have a six pack, but I can suck my stomach in pretty deep where my rib cage protrude like crazy, but I can't say I worked for that, maybe I just don't get it.

    I thought there would be a lot more mention of good old Flex but your the first one. Which is surprising because I think he is one of the best.

  28. Been reading and watching alot on Lee Haney...he had it goin on, a great mixture of classic golden age symmetry and also new school mass. I think he represented a perfect compromise. i guess his 8 time mr olympia speaks to that haha

    Lee Haney is the man, and still looks like a boss on his religion channel show.
