Perhaps structurally, yes.
But this is a bodybuilding site, so naturally my admiration leans toward those with greater development.
Just imagine Zyzz with the addition of 30-40 lbs more lean mass.[/quote]
True he would probably resemble Arnold–with lesser arms of course.
It’s interesting you bring that up though…is the point of bodybuilding more to develop one’s body to the max? Or to shape/sculpt one’s body to an aesthetic ideal?
To have extreme mass & proportions is the territory of a lucky few, but for the rest of us mortals, I admire the proportioned physique over the physique with mass just for the sake of mass.
To me Zyzz is more of a bodybuilder than most people competing today. He envisioned an ideal shape to his body, and achieved it (more or less). Whereas I feel like a lot of BBers today just want to get bigger EVERYWHERE with no regard for shape or proportion.
Not to say he couldn’t use 10-20 more pounds of course :)[/quote]
Well, he DID look better in many ways than a LOT of amateur BBers competing today. And frankly, I wish I looked that good.
