I don’t know about you guys, but I think the physiques of the 90’s were out of this world and that the current crop doesn’t match up! Don’t get me wrong, I’m a hardcore bodybuilding fan and will have attended five shows since last Spring come this Saturday, one of them being the NYC Pro, the third most important show. I love the whole thing and was glued to the computer monitor for the O last Saturday. However, with that said, I just think the guys from the 90’s just looked so much crisper and tighter–better lines, V tapers, X structures, waspy waists, the whole nine. No bloating, few GH guts, few moon faces, and little Palumboism. Not to mention, the physiques from then were just more blessed by Mother Nature.
I actually enjoyed the 212 Olympia more than the main event because all the competitors were so damn tight and shredded.
What do you guys say? Who are your favorites from the 90’s? The genetic crop was just outrageous–guys like Dennis Newman, Shawn Ray, Flex, Fux, Dorian, Nasser, et. al.
