Would old school bodybuilders like Arnold or Franco win titles now?

    Or would the GH gut monsters of today reign supreme? Obviously BBers now are on a lot more drugs and have a lot more information, but do they look better? I certainly don't think so but on the other hand, I'd have to think that if you entered the Mr. Olympia competition looking like Arnold, you'd still lose to Ronnie :o

    I'm not going to bother posting the names for all of those people. If you're into BBing at all , they should be pretty obvious.


    Anyway, Old BBers > New BBers

    It seems like today's BBers have better abs than old school BBers.

    I think they should but they wouldn't. It's all about size period. Dosent' matter if you loook like a science experiment.I will always beleive Arnold and Serge Nubret were the best.

    There are plenty of modern bodybuilders today that look great. The freakishly huge people on the Mr. O stage are in their own class. Look at amateur bodybuilders that aren't super heavy weights, they still look good and tend to lean towards the more "classic" look.

    Not all pro's are huge disproportioned freaks either, look at people like Melvin Anthony:

    Ya, alot of the light heavyweights and heavyweights look damn good. It is the superheavys that look like they should be painted green and throwing cars.

    i think that has to do with better knowledge of cutting and what types of drugs work best. If you look at Arnolds, hes no where near as cut as todays bodybuilders. Its insane today that you can see actuall muscle strands

    Oh and Dareem Charles > *

    Arnold is numero uno. I too think that the BBers from before look better.

    Thew old school guys look better, but with alot of things, progression has mutated the sport... Being bigger has become gross, IMO.
