The older ones had nicer bodies... but of the bigger generation, I can see why Arnie won Mr Universe etc, to me that's as big as someone can be without appearing freakish.


The difference isn`t as extreme as pictures like these make it out to be. The same bodybuilder will look quite different in daily life to how they look pumped up, oiled and posing on a well lit stage. So a realistic comparison would have to be done under the same circumstances.

I think that the biggest bodybuiders today are over the top, cartoonish figures when competing (I initially assumed that the pics of Ronnie Coleman that I saw were fakes done as caricatures of bodybuilding), but this set of pictures exaggerates the difference.

They were, because the muscles were real and only came from strength training. No 'roids other crap just to make them look good.


OK...please explain to me how modern muscles are fake. Synthol, yes, that`s fake, but that`s not muscle.

Also, while we`re on the subject of steroids, please explain how steroids create all this fake muscle you`re talking about, without any exercise.

Which leads me to the next question - how do you think that all bodybuilders are getting away with using fake weights to exercise their fake muscles in their fake gyms? The weights are made from polystyrene and nobody ever notices or says anything? That conspiracy belief seems rather implausible to me.

I'll bet the old dudes were stronger.
