Top Three Bodybuilders of All-Time

So who are your top 3 favorite bodybuilders of all-time? I’ll start things off here. In no sequential order, mine would have to be:

Larry Scott, Tom Platz, Lee Priest.

Larry because he has the coolest looking arms that I’ve ever seen, Platz because of his insane intensity in the gym and because he seems like a very interesting/intelligent guy, and Lee Priest because he is funny as shit and I always get enjoyment out of watching his videos.

Is this FAVORITE or BEST?

Either way, I’ll do both.

[b]Favorite[/b]
Johnnie Jackson
Ronnie Coleman
Kevin Levrone

[b]Best[/b]
Arnold
Ronnie
Haney

Its tough to pick three, because I’ll feel like im leaving so many guys out. Off the top of my head, Flex Wheeler, Kevin Levrone, and Victor Martinez.

Toss up between Levrone/Dillet/Sergio (for his time)

Just too many possible angles to go at this from to say any 3 were the “best” of all time.

Arnold, Dorian, Ronnie

It would definitely be impossible to single out the “best”. Just YOUR top three favorites for whatever reason be it size, shape, personality, etc, etc.

Arnold, Ronnie, Lee Haney

oak, nubret, wheeler, levrone, and flame away…

i like seeing what Kai Greene is going to do and look like next, he’s a freak show of parts.

Franco’s upper pecs were the best.

Franco (gotta represent us short guys), Zane (seems like an intelligent guy from what I’ve read by/about him), Levrone (well, damn…)
