Title: Worst Genetic Abs
Post by: newdumbell303 on January 04, 2006, 12:05:46 PM

Definitely Boyer. Nice physique, but he just wasn't blessed with a set of visible abs.

Boyer has basically 2 big squares top and bottom.

old skool...watched Frank Zane win his first Olympia....agree without a doubt....BOYER COE....had great arms (split biceps) and legs but no cells in his abs....and remember genetically great abs can make you look more cut than you really are....case in point my old training partner Mohammed Makkawy

makkawy was your training partner? who are you?  i guess you must have known Vince Gironda very well too.


Title: Re: Worst Genetic Abs
Post by: Old-Skool on January 04, 2006, 09:53:54 PM
Trained in Toronto with Mohammed and then would sometimes go to Gironda's one month prior to Mohammeds big shows. Vince would be outside waiting for us at 6am and scream at us if it was 6:01! Also trained with Gladys Portuguese for her Olympia attempt in Montreal, as her routines were done by Gironda . That was one of the very few pro shows Vince actually attended. Gironda was a genius, an eccentric, a maniac, an originator who questioned existing training and nutrition .I feel honored to have known the man.

what's your take on vince's don't do squats or deadlifts? i'm a very hardgainer and natural... how else am i supposed to get big? squats have given me a kinda big butt. 40.5 inch hips and only 41 inch chest/back. my weakness is chest/back.


Title: Re: Worst Genetic Abs
Post by: Old-Skool on January 04, 2006, 10:06:12 PM
Didnt agree with Vinces NO SQUATTING policy...he made us do tons of sissy squats which made your legs scream but truly believe busting your ass at the squat rack is the only way too get big. Vince made us do wide grip DIPS, chin down, elbows forward, for our chest instead of benching and I truly agree with this. Bench press is a shitty pec developer. Some of his stuff was way ahead of its time. Remember, we did not have access to all the machines and supplements there are today. Your talking 22 years ago!

i can squat 225 for 8 reps. that's pretty good i guess because i weigh 187 but my LBW is 159. my legs are my strong point. i have 17.5 inch calves... that's just the way they are. i dont work them. i can develop legs with legpress too. but i also tend to feel my butt doing those. vince recomended that front squat but i can never do that. i've tried and it hurts like crazy... i have bad shoulders from bench pressing wrong in high school and from playing handball too. my back and chest totally suck. deadlifts have helped me put size on it recently and wide grip pull ups too since i'm narrow. if i stop the deadlifts i dont know how i'll get size on my back. vince says deadlifts give you wide hips... that's my dilema. i wanna get thick and wide but if my butt grows at the same time i'll have women proportions.

Think hip width is more bone structure related than muscle. Hell, look at Colemans ass and his hips dont look wide! LOL! Vince strived for an "X" frame that was achieved from delt width, small waist, and good outside thigh sweep ( hence the sissies and hack squats). He thought big hips and a big ass detracted form this X frame.


Title: Re: Worst Genetic Abs
Post by: gibberj2 on January 04, 2006, 10:42:56 PM
so if my hips and chest/back are almost the same it's okay because my shoulders are wide?

Makkawy ever talk of Vince getting him ready for the 1982 Night of the Champions in New York City?

IMO Kovacs has the worst abs ever seen on a bodybuilding stage.

Do you know Ron Kozlov by any chance?

i bought some book from him. the vince gironda supplements are just too many and they are hard to find

Well not counting that last pic of kovacs,I would say Ronnie Coleman. His abs just have a funny shape.They have a big void in the middle.Looks like crap compared to guys like Flex and Shawn Raye.


Title: Re: Worst Genetic Abs
Post by: gibberj2 on April 23, 2006, 01:20:53 AM

Most of the Vince stuff you can get through Ron Kozlov at a very very good price.  If interested shoot me a pm man and I'll give you Ron's number.

Actually it's Kosloff; nice guy. Vince was da man; along with Arthur Jones the best in the biz IMO. His attitudes were on par with the training wisdom. Justifiably called Schwarzenegger a fat f**k. LOL


This is what's known as the post-radiation look.

Yup, my abs show through even at 20-25% BF. Big and distinct.

It's genetics.
