To me Lee Priest is what the modern day Bodybuilding should be aiming for.
Who honestly looks at Kai Green and even Phil Health, who has incredible genes and symmetry, and says.. Yeah I want to look like him.
I grew up a little after Arnold times, but hell I knew who he was and he didn't look unnatural he looked bad ass and his accent helped that image...
I think just looking at the influence and following people like Zyzz, Harrison Twins and even Jeff Seid shows you how so many people have branched away from the core of Bodybuilding and Mr Olympia and how quickly Aesthetics having an influence on the current gym culture.
I can walk into any gym in my country and the amount of guys training for Aesthetics will always surpass those looking to be bodybuilders.. Why not bring the two back?
To me Arnold, Franco and Zane had both fields on point..
