I do see what you mean about his lower back but I dont think you can say that just bc he did a lot of d’ling, his lower back now looks like that. I know Ronnie, Johnnie Jackson and many other pro BB’ers do deads, I know many amateur BB’rs and friends that do them and dont seem to have that lower back “issue” you refer to. I guess it is an individual thing you are going to have to find out for yourself.
As far as the smaller waist, the GH gut definetly has a lot to do with that in today’s top pros. But there are still a lot of BB’ers out there who have both the size and the waist of the old school cats. I am not saying they werent doing any gear back in the day but I think the amount and kind have a lot to do with it.

You’re saying the guy in the pic is looks distorted?
Fuck, man, are you really so jealous of him you have to make sure up to find flaws?
If you train really hard and have great genetics, you’ll be lucky to be so “distorted.” LMAO.
Thats not even close to what im trying to say u egotistical bitch.
im just saying that if the lower back was built up like gulledge’s then it may have the appearance of making the midsection look bigger from the side. its just my observation.
but then again, i dont recall seeing arnold with a great lower back, so i cant really attest to that. however, nooing that columbo did it is enough for me.
but heres another question: how in the hell did they (old-school bodybuilders) keep their midsections so small?
heres a pic i forgot to post of gulledge from the back[/quote]
