Not a huge bodybuilding fan, I get shocked when I see a picture of the top guy’s waists in magazines, and then I’ll pull up a youtube competition video and from the side they look all distorted and like Haggar from Final Fight. Are there any top guys that have flat midsections?
In my limited knowledge I’ll say Lee Priest has an arguement for having the best waist. He does a lot of “classic” poses that a lot of guys can’t do b/c their gut would look silly. I read in MD a while ago that Priest hasn’t trained his abs in like seven years b/c they’re boring. This would support Chad Waterbury’s theory on a bigger waist from working the same bodypart frequently (Britney Spears syndrome he called it). Most pros do abs five or six times a week. I think Lee definitely has the advantage over others when it comes to midsection proportion, even if it came out of lazyness.
Here’s a live pic here:
And I attached one too if it works.
