#4

I’ll bite. Favorite physique, top-to-bottom, is unquestionably…

1.) Ronnie Coleman
2.) Johnnie Jackson
3.) Branch Warren
4.) Phil Heath
5.) Vic Richards

Sans Mr. Jackson, I’m typically a sucker for awesome wheels. Platz’ physique top-to-bottom wasn’t enough for me to put him there, though. I also am not a fan of most bodybuilders pre-Haney era. I respect that others like the look, but I like shit loads of mass.

Bodyparts?

Lats - Yates (easy) , Ronnie second
Arms - Heath , Flex
Legs - Branch - Period
Chest - Arnold’s was pretty excellent, as overrated as he think he is/was. Bertil for crazy conditioning. Big Lou as well.

Off the top of my head, though I’m sure reading some others will spark “Oh yeah!'s”


#5

Alenka Bikar. Pretty decent posterior chain.

Paul Anderson has that “filled out” look:


#6

John Farbotnik is one of my favorite natural physiques. I think Steve Reeves definitely has the pretty-boy look down, but Farbotnik seems to exude a more grown up masculinity. As did Jack Dellinger to some degree. I still prefer Farbotnik.

I respect Gironda for his training knowledge, but I’m not a huge fan of how he looks.

I’m also not a fan of the huge-mass look, which I know is almost sacreligious to say around here.


#7

Dmitry Klokov-someone that I would love to look like.


#8

I prefer the Greek Ideal. Or a more modern example I like is Reg Park.


#9

My all time favorite in terms of how I would personally like to look. Of course Yates is muscle GOAT but it must feel like your the thing from fantastic four when your that big!


#10

Serge Nubrets pec development makes me want to start a split with 2 chest days!

The only thing that was hot about Oleena was the fact that she drove all the know it alls from SANA crazy.

Wouldn’t look twice at her on the street though.


#16

You wanna talk size, thickness, proportion, aesthetics and conditioning,… look at lee Labrada in his prime. Guy had it all. Had he been a couple of inches taller, he would have beaten Haney in '91.

#17

For me, it’s Bob Paris without question.


#18

^Oh yeah, definitely wouldn’t mind being built like Paris. Got bigger throughout his career but always kept his great lines and overall shape.
