    Did they not cut as much? Why weren't they as vascular as bodybuilders of today? Is it because they didn't cut down to as low a bf%, did they not dry out like today's bbs do, or were they simply just not as big and that's the reason?

    just wondering :dunno:

    Size wise definitely smaller. Dexter is considered one of the smaller top current bodybuilder.
    5'6" and 215-225 lbs in competiton IIRC. Arnold at Mr.Olympia was 225-235lbs at just under 6'2". I don't think that's the reason for less vascularity though.

    I think they didn't care about water retention nearly as much. I think Samir Bannout introduced that on the Olympia level in 1983 when he won.
