    Arnolds day vs Today

    Arnolds day

    Today


    Which era of bodybuilders physiques do you guys admire the most?

    Personally i think that the physiques from the early to mid 70's (Arnold, Franco, Lou, Ken Waller, Frank Zane. etc.) have more aesthetic physiques than the bodybuilders of today. I just prefer the look, as opposed to the mass monsters of the olympia today.

    I'm not going to go into the differences in this post as they are fairly obvious. Just wanted to know what everybody else thought.

    But don't get me wrong the olympians of today are incredible atheletes who i admire and have nothing against nor dislike before people start attacking me lol.

    discuss guys.

    Re: Arnolds day vs Today

    I admire both eras for different reason, hard to say.

    I do like the mass monsters out there today though.

    I'm a bit biased to the earlier period from an aesthetic point of view, but both eras have produced some very impressive physiques so it's a tough call.

    Re: Arnolds day vs Today

    For me personally, i just dont like the stage look nowadays, or back in arnies day either tbh.

    Much prefer a lean 9/10% over a mega low 4% anyday.

    Re: Arnolds day vs Today

    The physiques today, although they take incredible hard work and 'supplementation' etc, dont seem no where near as aesthetic as those of the 70s-80s, or even the 90s for that matter with kevin levrone, shawn ray, flex wheeler etc.


    Personally i think the 70s-80s physiques were the best, as each guy was unique, and had a trademark bodypart or condition, whereas todays competitors look similar, very massive, but with protruding guts also.

    definitelyagree with you there mate. Particuarly on the gut side of things. lol. Go back a few decades and no one had pretruding guts. I've heard people say it's because people neglect practising their vacuum.

    I've also heard that it is beacuse of an increase in size of the internal organs. ( which seems more likely to me) Due to excessive steroid and HGH abuse.

    Re: Arnolds day vs Today

    This is a hard question, I mean the guys at the top today are awe inspiring.

    But I do love the shape, posing style, proportions of the typical 70s era bodybuilder.

    Really difficult, I couldnt say what is best tbh, the 1990-2000 era had some superb physiques, but then that could be just through my eyes, because those were the apex physiques when I started paying attention to bodybuilding.

    I suppose I could look at it like if I could snap my fingers, and have any physique... Serge Nubret high on my list... but then so is Bob Paris, Dennis Newman... very difficult, can't say for myself to be totally honest - every era has something outstanding to offer.

    Re: Arnolds day vs Today

    The main thing I don't like about todays mass monsters, is the stomach distention they get, when they're not tensing their abs they look like big bloated chubbers.

    None of that in Arnies day, I'd take this sort of physique over any of todays top pro's:

    Re: Arnolds day vs Today

    Not all of them do though, Milos Sarcev for instance.

    Each era has its own standouts for me, can look at every era and find something less than pleasing to the eye.
    90s for me though- Dorian, Milos, JP Fux
