#1

what bodybuilder in history has the best following
shoulder
back
arms
legs(besides platz)
chest

my pics would have to be
back-yates
arms-priest
legs-coleman
shoulders-(this one not really sure yet)
chest-franco had a sick chest but u cant compare that too now, jonnie jackson has a sick chest.


#2

shoulders - definitely Markus Rühl !


#3

id say
back- dorian yates or ronnie coleman or joel stubs
arms- lee priest or larry scott or sergio oliva
legs- jay cutler or ronnie coleman or tom platz
shoulders- kevin levrone or markus ruhl
chest- victor martinez or arnold or franco
calves - mike maratazzo or erik fankhouser


#4

back- yates
arms- lee priest edit: maybe phil heath
legs- ronnie
shoulders- levrone
chest- arnold
calves- fankhouser


#5

o ys calves ya i wud of picked frankhouser


#6

Back-Dorian
Shoulders-Levrone
Arms-Schwarzenegger, Heath
Chest-Schwarzenegger
Legs-Ronnie
Calves-Frankhouser or Schwarzenegger

Honestly though this is too hard. If I really wanted to I could name probably 10 people for each category. However they would probably be the same 10 people in each.


#7

best in terms of size? or in terms of aesthetics?


#8

basically just best in general like on stage what part is the best kind of thing


#9

how far back do u think haneys back development was too dorain?


#10

ya i know what u mean haha


#11

I'm not a fan of bodybuilding at all really, but you guys wouldn't put Sergio Oliva up there in arms?


#12

well i still think heath and priest are ahead of him but he would prob be 3rd on my list


#13

i think platz still reigns as all time best legs


#14

thats why i said leg-excluding platz =p haha


#15

Who do you all think has the best hawt abz???

!!!! KIDDING !!!!
lol


#16

Why? Abs are a very important muscle group for a bodybuilder, they pop out and complete the physique.


#17


Zabo...


#18

Always impressed with Flex's shoulders around 1999-2001


#19

Yeah, Flex might be my pick for shoulders as well.

Back- Dorian/jackson
Arms- Priest/Oliva (I think Arnold and Scott had great arms too, but oliva's were just so damned thick)
Legs- Coleman/DeMayo/Warren (there's also a guy who I've seen pics of with hyooge upper legs, one of the guys on IM has him as his avatar, but I can't for the life of me remember his name)
Shoulders- Ruhl/Wheeler
Chest- Arnold/Nubret/warren
Calves- matarazzo/yates

The Blade for abs.
Ronnie in his prime for everything else.
