I think now that ronnie is gone, the playing field is level (cutler CAN and HAS brought a tight, smaller, and more aesthetically pleasing physique but he had to compete with Coleman). Despite my cutler fanatacism (like I said, its got a lot to do with who he is as a person too, not just his physique), I think martinez should have won last year. That just shows that the judges now want to see something bigger and improved from arnold's day, but not the same thing they have been seeing (freak of nature colemans). I think this years O will be a turning point with all the new guys and the similar but very competitive physiques. (similar in that they are not generally all huge and distended.)
    jay aesthetic? please.

    lol.

    haha yea. I think he had his best look around 2001. If he brought that back then he could compete against the up and coming guys. We will see this year.

    Yea I know what you meant. I'm not sure, but I'm guessing this around the same time peptides and GH started making their way into bodybuilding and further pushing the physical limits of size. Especially GH, as you mentioned because we began to see the GH guts.

    2001 probably was his best look, but he had no choice. He had to sacrifice his aesthetics and pack on the mass to try and compete with Ronnie. He knew thats what the judges wanted to see so that is the direction he took.

    thats what i think it is. Arnold and them using GH? i doubt it, maybe a few of them but Yates competed with other mass monsters too....Dillet ring a bell? that guy was huge so competition was on another level by then.

    Dillet was ****ing huge. Didn't he compete at 270 or 280.

    It definitely was the beginning of the mass monsters. Think about how much the size of competitors has changed. Arnold is said to have been 6'2" 240. Some of the guys today are competing at 270 and 280 even at heights of less than 6".

    Matarazzo definitely had some amazing calves as well. They were just sick looking. I'm just a big Yates fan so that's why he gets my vote.

    Pro bodybuilding is a joke these days IMO., and I hate to say that cause it's obviously something we here all love. But symmetry, training, genetics these things have be laid to the way side by those who are willing to risk there lives to take ungodly amounts of drugs to achieve a physic that few here would want(well for more than a day or two). That's what separates the pros from the ams these days IMO, Who is willing and can aford to take the most drugs.

    Depends.
    For all around appearance, symmetry, porportions- Victor Martinez by far.

    For brute size and my absolute favorite-Dennis Wolf

    Old school but still BA and unbelievable-Sergio Oliva. Why haven't I seen Oliva? He was THE bodybuilder at the time! he was HYOOOGE!!! Nervermind I just saw Harlans!

    Actually if you keep up with bodybuilding you will notice the size monster's have somewhat dissappeared and people like Wolf kind of have a classic looking body.

    BTW Natural bodybuilding recently has been and is really strong.

    I personally like Melvin Anthony. I don't know if he goes for the big one, but he can put on a good performance.

    Frank Zane for most aesthetically pleasing. Lee Priest, Victor Martinez, Branch Warren and Johnny Jackson, but I admire Jackson's strength over his body builder physique.

    If I had to choose a number one, it'd be Martinez.

    True, Ruh's out, Nasser's out, Coleman's out, Dennis James keeps getting bigger and not placing, and the bulkiest top tier guy might actually be Jay. The up and coming champs are pretty aesthetic guys like Martinez, Wolf and Heath.

    Someone mentioned Dave Henry, if he were 5 inches taller, holy $chit, his back has amazing detail and muscle contour.

    I agree some what. But whens the last time symmetry won over moster? And Yes the fact that natural BBing is getting some long over due recognition is personally very exiting for me (and I'm sure you too after reading your siggy) but people love the freaks(unfortunately)!!

    Silvio Samuel at 5'5" and around 200lbs has taken top 7 at the last 12 shows he's been in, including 3 1st place finishes and 2 third place finishes. He's usually noticeably the shortest guy on stage, but aesthetic as hell.

    Hell, one of Silvio's "*****s" is 6'2" 284lbs Toney Freeman, who always cracks midget jokes, but got crushed by Samuel on stage. Silvio placed higher then Freeman at the Olympia too, and the Olympia is the most biased toward monsters of all the comps.

    As of current Wolf(Unless my boy Big T can get it together). Overall Big Ron, or Yates. Two of the hardest working bodybuilders of all time!

    Yea I though of that when I wrote that. Dexter has the most cut abs ever for sure, but honestly I think Silvio's are more separated and larger though.
