Not to jump on the bandwagon. But arnold was perfect. He was the mos aesthetically pleasing out of any bodybuilder.

I saw Ronnie at a fitness convention in Birmingham, UK last summer. He wasn't the freak of nature he used to be but he was still pretty big.
Not to derail but Dorian Yates was tiny compared to his old self when I saw him at the same convention. He just looked like an I'm shape construction worker... You know that old man strength...big forearms, arms, etc but nothing like his prime. I just hope when I'm his age I can be half that size still.

Arnold wouldn't do so well these days based on his legs, they're just too small, but his upper body would hold up, maybe top 10 current day. I think Zane was the most aesthetically pleasing, Arnold's pecs way outshined everything else. I think his charisma won him a Sandow or two, as oppose to strictly physique, i.e. "beating out" Mike Mentzer in 1980.
I don't think Ronnie should come back. He may fair okay in the Masters Olympia, but not the regular Mr. Olympia, but Ronnie might be the greatest of all time in my book, as far as dominance.

Forget natural genetics, these guys nowadays are all 5ft 8 and full of insulin and hgh, i think they look like ****, all blocky and short and thick, the guys in arnies time looked so much better. I'm a fan of ronnie but alot of these current guys are a joke, i miss the old days

Look at Ronnie and Arnold's stats! I would say the biggest differences is leg size and height.. So like I said previously; could you imagine Arnold in his prime w/ today's nutrition, gear dosages, and the addition of HGH and insulin. Lets also add todays training facilities are much more advanced. Even Ronnie at the grimey Metro Flex gym had way more variety than 1970s Gold's Gym. Arnold would be ridiculous!

People have no respect for the amount of detail that went into Ronnie's physique. It's NOT all about getting as big as humanly possible and then standing on stage, kids.
Although, I like the old-style physiques much more than today's. But today's physiques are so much more advanced.
