Training for classic physique nine0seven 12 2 yearsZyzzst (4486): @eknight don't even bother man. This guy doesn't realize new chemicals and chemical chains are made every single day. Especially to get past the pro hormone bans, etc. Arnold and those guys probably ran high test and that's about it. Genetics played a HUGE role in old school bodybuilding.
favorite old school bodybuilder csizemore21 15 2 yearsJsn3004 (2629): Frank Zane for sure. That's an ideal physique for me. And he's not a total mass monster. 195-200 pounds looking like that is perfect.
Need critique on my videos! Bm96 1 3 yearsBm96 (1): This is my first post! Hopefully this is in the right section. I recently made 2 motivational videos. These were simply edited with iMovie if anyone wanted to know. The first one is a tribute to the Golden Era, the quality isn't so good because pretty much all of the clips are old, but I tried my best. The second one is on Sadik Hadzovic, one of my favorite male physiques! http://youtu.be/GJJTUj7WErE http://youtu.be/1lR22pKMlmA If...
Do you reckon? IrishGymSheep 11 3 yearsjonrivs49 (3001): Agree with this. Newbie days all I know about human anatomy is Bicep. Bicep everyday man.
Frank Zane only trained 3-5x per week ajm87 10 3 yearsCannonball (6127): doubt it, im not really all that educated on the golden era but franco columbo trained ALOT, often two times a day and he sure didnt use baby weights

Aesthetics the1 26 3 yearsOptimusPrime (1257): @teewhat Yeah mate, the guys from the 'Iron Game' dating in the 40's and 50's; the likes of Reeves, Eiferman (in the image above) and the like, were natural. They were the few who got closest to their genetic potential, and 'till this day have better measurements/proportions/symmetry etc than Bodybuilders natural and enhanced in their weight categories in the modern age. A good example of this is Reeves: Height: 6'1" Weight:...

Mr olympia Dexdbest Jump to first page32Jump to last page 4 yearsDexdbest (4792): ^ lol....forgot ek is a yates fan, my bad....dont know why he likes him though. @the1 why do you feel kai shouldnt win the olympia, i personally dont feel there are enough threats currently to keep kai from the title, aside from heath and cutler and maybe rhoden. And why does everybody hate cutler so bad?
Serge Nubret Markovich 23 4 yearsMassthetics (364): serge got dem abs damn i think arnie is king though
Old School Routines nastybeast 8 4 yearsjonrivs49 (3001): Chest/back and Shoulders/arms next day. i think not a good option. You have used arms on chest/back day and you need time to recover before stressing them again. From their time this routines can get away since they are still in a learning process.
Who is your favorite Bodybuilder? jonrivs49 Jump to first page68Jump to last page 4 yearskickinchicken (8347): Franco did use them later on. He still claims that he never used them until after his first Mr O win.

Serge Nubret Markovich 3 4 yearsMarkovich (595): No he has said in several interviews that he used steroids. It was not illegal in the 60's and weightlifters talked vety open about it.
RIP "The Myth" hurricane92 10 5 yearshurricane92 (3699): I hope somebody kills that kid haha, what a moron. What I find funny about all of these old school bodybuilders dying of "liver failure" and that it is because of their past steroid use, do people not realize they have been off roids for probably 20+ years, and that the liver is the only organ that regenerates? Steroid use from that long ago would not kill somebody 20 years later. People are downright retarded. Also, deca is not an...

Mass vs aesthatics Dexdbest Jump to first page34Jump to last page 5 yearsWinnersNeverQuit (10200): personally my ultimate goa would be jim cordova, perfect balance of size and aesthetics IMO, looks powerful and ripped, but similarly not too big. http://www.bodybuildingprogramzone.com/imagesbyname/jim_cordova%20(3).jpg
