When I see old pics of flex hitting that shot it makes my jaw drop.  The man had insane shape...the likes of which we haven't seen since IMO.

Great pic of Dorian......thick as hell.

Post by: Figo on June 21, 2007, 07:23:36 AM
The top pic (albeit not a dbl bi) shows the extreme development Flex had on his back. Charles Glass (pictured), sure knew how to get the best out of him (supposedly one of the laziest bbers). 93 I think that shot was taken, the year (if I'm not mistaken) he took the Ironman, Arnold Classic and was a favourite for the O.

Sergio 84
Thats always been a interesting picture for a number of reasons the main one being (and Ive argued this point for years) SERGIO had a fantastic BACK when he FINALLY LEARNT to hit the BDB properly...by that i mean look @ most (if not all) his pre 1975 on down pics...Sergio always hit the BDB going for maximum V taper as in NOT CONTRACTING the actual back muscles...hes pushing his shoulders out hard witch given his naturally small hips and waist gives that very Dramatic highly sought after ironage ideal of a amazing V TAPER...however in pushing your shoulders out hard (i don,t care who you are try it sometime) and not concentrating on actual back CONTRACTION, your back will as a general rule of thumb look so-so...hit the BDB again and NOT concentrate on pushing your shoulders out and actually contract your back muscles hard...Different look isn,t it....take a look at (most not all) Sergio's BDB poses after 1975 (especially 1980-1984 when past his physical prime) Sergio low and behold has learnt to Contract his back muscles properly showing he actually had a great, thick, somewhat detailed back even past his best competitive years.

If you knew they first thing about competitive bodybuilding and how it's judged calves are just as important as biceps in the rear double biceps shot it's not all about ' show muscles ' we can harp on everyone's back double biceps shot and find a flaw but overall from head to toe Haney & Yates have among the best back double biceps shots in bodybuilding and I didn't even post a yates shot yet

this my ignorant little friend is an outstanding back double bicep even if bias prevents you from seeing so  ;) and keep typing my name  :D

Outstanding shot of Franks back, in my view Frank had extra ordinary traps when viewed from the back, one of the few with several splits running though the upper traps & combined with the ripped delts it gives a awesome look . :o :o :o

Yeah because it's not like calves matter  ::) again mr ignorant calves matter just as much as biceps , just because you're willing to overlook them the judges aren't

Back Double Biceps (see Figure 4)
Standing with his back to the judges, the competitor will
bend the arms and wrists as in the Front Double Biceps
pose, and will place one foot back, resting on the toes.
He will then contract the arm muscles as well as the
muscles of the shoulders, upper and lower back, thigh
and calf muscles.

The judge will first survey the arm muscles and then do
the head-to-foot survey, during which there are more
muscle groups to look at than in all of the other poses.
This includes the neck, deltoids, biceps, triceps, forearm,
trapezius, teres, infraspinatus, erector spinae, external
obliques, latissimus dorsi, gluteus, thigh biceps, and
calves. This pose, probably more than the others, will
help the judge to determine the quality of the
competitorís muscle density, definition, and overall
balance.


That's the criteria for the back double biceps , notice they mention the word calves ( calf ) more than once  ;)

Post by: johnny1 on January 10, 2009, 07:12:14 PM
Yip thats right ND you don,t see many twisting pose's from many big guys these days i wonder why ;D ;D ;D (come to think of it since the early 1990s) Lee Haney managed to pull off alot of these pose's well with his great V Taper, small hips etc, Both Sergio and Arnold although Massive, both had flat, somewhat detailed waists, and Arnold was the Master at hitting all the right angle's ;D when it came to twisting pose's, where Sergio with his Genetically small hips and waist coupled with outrageous delt and arm size was a sight to behold even though he didn't hit the pose's correctly alot of the time.

Beckles awesome back double biceps
Great picture Incredible detail on Beckles, i recall watching the 1985 Olympia on VHS in the late 1980s where Beckles placed second to Lee, his back was extraordinary, especially when you take into account beckles age @ the time.

Uncrowned mr. olympia. I was backstage at the '76 universe in montreal along with all the main players from Pumping Iron, about a year before the movie was released. Even amongst alot of great competing Robinson stood out as something special. Unbelievable; dryness that only a few like Yates have done since, but with better upper body balance and definition than Yates had. Still have my pic talking with him. ;)

Post by: johnny1 on January 12, 2009, 03:56:36 PM
When it comes to upperbody mass, separation of the muscle belly's, balance is give or take (depending on your point of view) Robby had a much better Whoa factor than Zane in the late 70s when Zane was winning, However Zane APPEARS to have had a more COMPLETE balance than Robby, less whoa factor for sure, but overall better balance from head to toe of all the muscle groups, not a knock on Robby who was outstanding just a observation.

When did bodybuilding stop taking away points for looking blocky n square not a V?

I blame lee haney as the transition.

Lats delts n quads too big shoulda taken points off for 0 symmetry.

Arnold was huge but still had it.
