Best Bodybuilders of All Time
The Top Ten
Bodybuilding popular because of him
Ronnie coleman needed 50 more pounds of body weight to match arnie's size but could not match his muscle shape. Arnie had perfect arms, chest, back, huge calfs, great definition thighs. Arnold did win on stage under 240 lbs WITHOUT looking like a freak!
the man was a phenom, every muscle in proportion and a waist like a woman for gods sake. body building in its purest form, before all the younger guys took it to the nxt level of cartoon muscles
He is what a bodybuilder should look like,and to me still the benchmark,although time has moved on I don't think the modern day bodybuilder has,and it seems to me they all want to be mass monsters and throw the classic shape out the window.If you look at the current crop and from late 80s all of the 90s to the present their shape is overall not as good as Schwarzenegger,or Zane and Oliva.Frog belly is a classic unhealthy look to the modern bodybuilder,and I very much doubt that they could perform vacums.I Honestly think if illegal substances were disregarded bodybuilding would profit a great dealV 30 Comments
The guy to use the highest doses of juice and other chemicals. Funny how he was a cop and clearly was on tons of illegal substances.
In terms of muscularity, density, overall shape, and just freakiness he will never be matched. 1999 Olympia stands a notch above anything I have ever seen on stage.
He is way bigger than arnold and everyone else in history without having used non-legit steroids
I accidentally voted for this chemist! Arnold is the greatest!V 9 Comments
And stood him next to any of these o his size and symmetr would be too overwhelmin
The man most credit for the decline of bodybuilding. He was the first top bodybuilder to use HGH/Insulin. Sad.
Dorian has the best size, proportion and defenition of all these bodybuilders and can't be compared!
Has to be at least number 1 or 2! I mean, look at his late and his calves...
Easily number one, 5;10 and 260-270 contest weight with awesome condition,
Tiny but effect his upper chest is one of the greatest thing in bodybuilding
He is probably the most strongest Olympian..
Flex definitely deserves a higher ranking in this group. And by this group I mean that Lee Priest or Mariusz or Paul Demayo should not even be mentioned. Simply because best means best... And in BodyBuilding you have to have the total package. I agree with Sergio, Lee, Markus, Flex, Dorian, Ronnie and Arnold. But then again, it is about what we prefer... Mass? Definition? Symmetry? Smile? Posing?
He's called the sultan of symmetry for a reason guys. should be top 3!
Frank Zane was not the biggest bodybuilder, but no doubt had the best body in Bodybuilding history. He's one of only three men to have beaten Arnold Schwarzenegger in a bodybuilding contest.
He is everything that bodybuilding today should be!
Most aesthetic physique ever.
Big Lufer! He was the nicest guy in bodybuilding. Successful off the stage as well.
He shouldn't even be on this list, yes he was the biggest bodybuilder in his time weight wise but he was 6'5 and he had a much higher boyfriend% than most guys at his time. He's a very big and strong man but do I think he deserves this five spot? No simply because he wasn't cut enough and never won a Mr. Olympia
4x Mr Olympian. Greatest Bodybuilder Ever.
The strongest. There is a video of him leg pressing 950 lbs
He's swole He makes Ronnie look small - PatrickStar
Everything that arnold has, Sergio has it better. Waist, arms, chest, legs, you name it, anything. And those who think that Arnold is better than Coleman or Yates, etc are like those people who think Manchester United is better than Real Madrind, Barcelona and Bayern Munich. They don't know anything about football, or bodybuilding in this case. They just support because Arnold is the only bodybuilder they've heard of.
Best front upper body of all time. Legs were also very good early on, his back thickness always was an issue.
Bunch of retards here, what is John Cena and Mariusz P doing here? Kevin Levrone is probably one of the most aesthetic mass monsters, amazing delts, arms and traps. Too bad his back was never up to par.
Phil heath us one of the few guy to score a perfect score in Mr. Olympia its funny how he's rated so low because he won't be beat until 2020 because there are no current or up and coming body builders built like him with his perfect aesthetics jeez like he's nearly perfect down to the smile and eye color
He is starting a new era in bodybuilding
He is clearly the best in the world, proven by the 2011 olimpia!
He has so many years to go and is already 2 time olimpia champ!
Probably my 4th favorite. #1 Arnold #2 Flex Wheeler #3 Levrone #4 Ray. He deserves top 10-15 at least!
Love him or hate him you cannot deny the intensity he has and his dedication
Simply the best
5 times strongest man, needless to say anything else
Let them all bow, pure muscle and power house
5 times strongest man
Strongest man in the world
If I could have the physique of any bodybuilder in the history of competition, it would be the body of Steve Reeves - period. If Steve's body was not available, Frank Zane would be my second choice. Most of the rest are freakish looking mutants (not trying to be cruel). I'm a fan of smooth strength. Steve Reeves had it all.
The perfect physique before steroids took over Bodybuilding
Well, After all it is called the Sandow
The OG big boi
#26? What's the predator doing here? Definitely deserves a much higher place.
Kai greene 26th.. what a joke
Why is John Cena above Kai Greene?
Best mass of all time
THIS SHOULD BE NUMBER 1 what IS THIS PLACE.
He is the blade... What an awesome muscles...he shuld be on top 5. He is known for his chisel cuts
Lazar Angelov at number 34? He has the most aesthetic and proportional body ever! Every muscle is cut and defined. I would even rate hum above Arnold.
Should be number 1. lazar has the best physique among all human beings!
Perfect body... Perfect shape and curves.. Not too bulky
Lazar angelov #27?! Seriously? He has the best physique achievable by any human being. people like him deserve to be in the top ten, not the steroid and synthol fueled bodybuilders.
;By todays standards Larry was well built, not over built, puffy, etc, like a comic book super hero. I would take that body any day over any Mr. Olympia of the past 25 years.
Larry Legend. The first/original Mr. Olympia. Anyone who came after him took something from him to enhance their own physiques.
Strong and aesthetic. The best. Some of the other guys around here should be at the top too: Bobby Pandour, Draper, Gironda, Sipes, even Maxick who was a master of posing and muscle control
Greatest Bodybuilder before steroids. Also Arnolds mentor
