Arnold looked really good for his age for a long time
and then somewhere along the way he got that older
Grandpa look.

Someone mentioned his Governorship which does age men.
He had the genetic heart problem and had to slow down the weight training.
He is a Germanic type white guy who stayed fairly to deeply
tanned from around 20 well into his 40's.
(This will age your skin greatly if you are not brownish/black.
He had grey hair by about 30 years old. I'm talking very grey
which would seem to indicate accelerated aging even if it's only 10-20%.
(But what a life) Probably one in a billion!

Here he is at 50-51 in 1999 and he looks youthful and muscular.
Of course he is 66 and Father Time catches everyone.
Pretty funny clip here starting around 4:43.
Arnold with his usual charisma and humor.

Kai has the most dense, freakiest physique
in the IFBB.
Phil, especially in 2011 has one of the best BB physiques
of all time but Kai's muscles look harder; like they were
built from lifting heavy weights.
Although Phil's muscles are extremely defined, they do have
a softer look overall.
Personal preference if both are 100%.
Fact: If people had voted, Kai would have won 2012
but I think we all know it's probably 40:1 in reality for Kai
to win. Phil would have to be quite off.

I liked this or his 1993 ASC look the best.
On the video he actually gets big applause when he
hits his rear lat spread.

In 1994 he was more ripped but lost some roundness
in the Grand Prix he won.
In 1996 he came in at 275 instead of 263 in 1993
and lost alot of that small waist;  incredible V taper in open
arm poses.
1st time I saw this vid back in 1993 my 1st thought was...
This is the 1st BBer who has long arms with full muscle bellies
like Arnold.
My 2nd thought was how in the heck did Vince beat Dillett.

midsection wider than Heath

I hope to God that isn't a recent picture because that means his
protocol for his Olympia prep is screwed again.

Here he is a month ago; looking good...gut in check.

Last two are from 2009 pre Arnold Classic so we know
from the 2012 Olympia and the 2009 ASC his waist can come down.

lol.. yes, thats called drug use... and then later, synthol.

during his career he "grew his calves" using synthol/implants..

Yes and as he got bigger his forearms grew proportionately.
His question was not - Do you know a Natural who?

Did I mention calves?
Hard to post here with replies like this.
I hate explaining myself to grown men like they are
6  Getbig Main Boards / Gossip & Opinions / Re: Are there any proof of pros bringing up their calves/forearms on: July 17, 2014, 05:55:45 AM
If you look at Flex Wheeler younger or retired his forearms
are quite thin but very respectable at his biggest.

7  Getbig Main Boards / Gossip & Opinions / Re: Sorry Getbig-I'm fan of Phil Heath on: July 14, 2014, 04:03:13 PM
Excellent post, I don't understand all the Phil "HATE" on GB myself.....I actually saw him on Saturday night as the guest poser at the show in NY, he's a complete FREAK in person, yes he may not have the widest shoulders( but there plenty wide) , but I have never seen a BB that thick width wise from front to back, small waist and in great shape 10 weeks out. Major chest improvements this offseason.

He also got up at the podium and addressed the crowd, he is a good public speaker and is good for BB, he doesn't sound like a stereotypical meathead when he speaks.

And Nick Trigili was the overall winner in this show, that kid is a total freak too.....he was 255 on stage.

And 40 years ago too which is what makes it more amazing.. Arnold is the King!

Phil is a great bodybuilder who looks like a Mr. Olympia and is well spoken.
He'll never look as good as 2011. After that his waist has gotten blurry
and he is getting too big for his frame.

Near perfection here by bodybuilding criteria...

I vaguely know who she is because I mainly only interested
about the outcome of the men's contests.

So, I am surprised at some of the comments because
facially resembles Kate from lost in these pics.
(And that's a very good thing!)

Pretty delusional to even consider this for the top spot at mr O

Philippe might be a tiny tit with clavicles rivaling the french catwalk models, but at least he's got the aesthetic twink look about him. Kai is just a bloated mess with a collapsed abdominal wall. Bring back the standard of the 90's please. Mass monsters with granite looks.

Also, they all fade into nothingness compared to a prime Coleman/Yates/Nasser/Dillet

That was his worst showing ever. (2010 Mr. O)
You Quote (Pretty delusional to even consider this for the top spot at mr O)
You are correct because he placed 7th that year and should have been 8th
behind Martinez.
He was still working with Oscar at the time who's known for putting size
on bodybuilders but also with a huge gut.

Go to the 2011 NYP working with Farah.
Team Andro filmed a long segment where you see them from the side
for a long time and Kai's gut is flat as a pancake.
Also, 2012 Olympia - incredible midsection.

2013 ASC Europe was not good stomach wise.
He dried out a lot from the Olympia which can irritate the stomach causing it to bloat.

I think this photo shoot captured his granite look about as good
as any photos.
BTW - That video is shot in a 4:3 ratio format and posted in a 16:9 format
making his waist look a lot wider but also everything else.
This may have come from the makers of the DVD but I've seen other shots
from Nasser and they have that same stretched out look that are not from Delta.
I've also seen the original format video.
Open pictures to full size to get the full effect.
These smaller pictures don't do the full size ones justice.
11  Getbig Main Boards / Gossip & Opinions / Re: Dorian Yates vs. Ronnie Coleman - who was better? on: April 10, 2014, 07:38:44 PM
I hate to keep hearing Yates was drier than everyone.
Was he drier than Paul Dillett when he froze up at the
1994 ASC he was so dry.
Did that give Paul that granite look that no one else seemed to have.
Dorian had genetically very, very thin skin that gave him that look.
Unfortunately, except for his back he wasn't gifted with a lot of separation/striations
except for his back.
Ronnie had extremely thin skin waist down from the back but no amount of water loss
or fat loss was going to make his back as detailed as Dorian's.
Darker skinned individuals in general have thicker skin but better shape and the lighter
skinned guys tend to have the thinner skin, grainier look.
There are exceptions but in general this is the way it is.
Fortunately for Ronnie he had pretty thin skin everywhere, although it seemed to be
thickest in his back. His mounds of back muscles plus excellent shape made his back
the best overall or 2nd best according to who you ask.
Yates had a bit bigger bone structure but Ronnie compensated for this with rounder,
more bulbous-but extremely striated muscle.
Ronnie had relatively weak delts until 98 and even then they were still a bit flatish according
to Peter McGough's Olympia report that year. He finally balanced out his delts with the rest of his
upper body in 1999.
Coleman had several great years and I happened to come across this a few weeks ago
and posted on another forum. Very impressive to say the least.
12  Getbig Main Boards / Gossip & Opinions / Re: Ultimate Warrior eye rolling thread on: April 10, 2014, 06:17:42 PM
Why would you get defensive when other people point out the fact wrestling is fake?  

Written early morning on April 9th on a different forum.
Check last sentence... People considering it fake wrestling was dead 20 yrs. ago
and I havn't watched any since they had the WCW/NWO which was entertaining for a while.

He was the only reason I watched a bit of wrestling late 80's and early 90's.
I didn't care if he wasn't a great wrestler; I was inspired by the build and intensity of the gimmick.
This is a shock cause he was always no drugs, stay in shape, ect.
It was obvious he used his fair share of juice in his prime.
I've got a lot of the story now by spending about an hour on youtube so here is my take.

He did a video to promote a WWF video game and looked in tremendous shape for 53-54.
Obvious TRT, HRT at the least. He looked slim in the face and the abs were showing.
I've been seeing all these commercials about how TRT is bad for your heart, ect through new studies.
I sure hope it's just hype and propaganda because I planned on getting on TRT in the next 6 months
and get those test levels back to when I was 25 instead of 48.

Anyway, he was inducted in the WWE hall of fame and looked like a different person than the commercial.
I wonder if he may have had a mini stroke because the left side of his face; eye and mouth seemed to droop
ever so slightly but it is there if you watch long enough. This would explain a limp also.

Monday Raw he gives a death type speech talking about his last breath and how the legend
will live on way after he's gone. Something to that effect. Very strange that he died the next day.
I think he knew his health for whatever reason was not good.
He looked like he had aged at least 10 years in the last 5. In fact he looked like he had
aged 5 years or more from the commercial they had shot.

He made his mark on 10's of thousands of people and will be remembered as one of the 1st
to really bring the entertainment side out of Sports Entertainment instead of most considering it
fake wrestling at the time.

RIP Warrior

Day before he died speech - Kind of Prophetic so to speak.

13  Getbig Main Boards / Gossip & Opinions / Re: Damn RIP Ultimate Warrior... on: April 10, 2014, 07:44:22 AM
Warrior was not a big boned guy; the same as most bodybuilder types.
Small joints and medium to small bones with big muscle bellies.
Considering this; Warrior put the best bodyslam ever on Andre
the Giant AFTER Andre got real heavy - around 550.
There were others who did very good slams on Andre when he was
around 400. Considering Warrior's overall size this was a very impressive feat.

Scott Hall (Razor Ramone) and Larry Zbyszko talk about this along with
talking about Arnold S. around the 2:50 mark.

I just read the 1st page + some and I must becoming desensitized
to stuff I watch. The thing that bothered me on a moral level
was ripping off all those people of their money.
I can understand wanting to live most of your waking hours under the influence
of something if it makes you feel better. (Not talking extremes in the movie like
the qualudes did)..not remembering what you had done the night before.
I thought the movie was awesome and enjoyed pretty much the whole thing.
If Getbiggers are saying it's too much then I might need to check myself
although my times of wild parties with strippers and assorted candies are
a thing of the past.
I did feel bad for really LOLing when those old Ludes took him too a different phase
he had never been...the cerbal palsy phase + the way he moved on the ground;
way too funny not too laugh but still felt bad about it.
15  Getbig Main Boards / Gossip & Opinions / Re: Did Dorian retire just before "Palumboism" had a chance to set in? on: December 28, 2013, 08:43:56 AM
I used to think that Nasser should have beat Yates in 1997 as well, based on photos.  However, in watching the video of the contest, it was clear that Nasser had no density to his physique.  When he turned to the side, it was over.  When he turned around, even worse.  Pictures don't tell the whole story. 

I realize if I had been there in person or seen a good video I may very well feel different.
Thx for your input.
16  Getbig Main Boards / Gossip & Opinions / Re: Did Dorian retire just before "Palumboism" had a chance to set in? on: December 27, 2013, 09:58:55 PM
Dorian's left arm was gone in 1997. A torn bicep and an even worse
tear to the left tricep.
Dorian's arms in 1993 were quite excellent although some tend to disagree
but even the uninjured right arm by 1997 had diminished some in size.
JUST GOING BY PHOTOS I see no way Yates should have beat Nasser.
Yates was superior in the back shots but Nasser was more overwhelming
comparatively from the front than Yates was comparatively from the back.
I'm not a fan of Nasser's overall physique at all and I think the 1993 version
of Yates competitively is the top 2 or 3rd competition physique ever; BUT Nasser
should have beat Yates here. Please take a close look at the 1st picture.

Really?? Kai looks awkward as fuck! There's no flow to him ,a bunch of body parts thrown together

Only when he's in shape like 2012. Check the video link in my post.
Kai's midsection is much more appealing and he has better flow in quite a few poses.

18  Getbig Main Boards / Gossip & Opinions / Re: From the pages of FLEX Magazine on: December 21, 2013, 02:50:13 AM
Iceman - The highlighted stuff comes from Kai's comments in Generation Iron.
My advice to Kai would be come in as conditioned as possible like 2012 and hope
Phil has an off night. Anything can happen in those last 48 hours and like Dexter does;
if someones off, he's there to pick them off.
Kai's shape rivals Phil's and in some ways is better when he comes in like this.

 Ronnie's gut was bad 2002-2004 and he brought it down incredibly for 2005.
After that year he has always had it.
It could be visceral fat around the organs and underneath the skin.
Kind of like the skinny guy that's pretty lean but has a bulging beer belly.

21  Getbig Main Boards / Gossip & Opinions / Re: Is Arnold getting younger? on: April 22, 2013, 09:20:20 PM

The last 10 years have been rough on Arnold.
Around 10 years ago when they made the Terminator 3 movie
he looked really good for a 54 year old. Stallone looks great for 65
if you ask me. Father time has not been as good to Arnold.
Pictures from around 10 years ago.
You don't stay or look young forever but one thing that will age your
skin is staying tan all the time and although Arnold is naturally pretty
white he spent most of his years with a decent to very golden tan.

Tanned Arnold around 35 yrs. old.

This is the 1st thing I thought of after reading your post.
From the movie Reign of Fire.
They kill their 1st Dragon and the whole village is celebrating.
Mathew M's character comes in on it and listen for yourself.
Start about 2 minutes 50 seconds in.

Picture from just a couple of weeks ago. The best way to compare is side by side.
Jay is going to improve more than Phil will because of the lay off but at this
point Phil is easily ahead of Jay;
Especially in the delts.
After 2009, I'm not going to doubt what Jay can potentially bring come Olympia
time. but DO I think he will beat Phil or Kai? NO, Do I believe it's possible for him
to bring the freakiest package Jay has ever brought? Yes, If everything alligns right
he could bring the size of 2006 with the condition and shape of 2009.

If he does this he could win. Possible but not probable.  
Check out the difference in delt size in the photo
and then check out the 1st 2 minutes or so of what Ronnie brought at 40 yrs. old
at close to or reportably 300 pounds.

Click links below pictures for a much larger size.
2nd picture shows where Jay's delts need to come back to
and also I think this was Jay's best shape ever -possibly not condition
but the shape of his physique overall.

24  Getbig Main Boards / Gossip & Opinions / Re: Kai Greene - After his past, can he ever win the Olympia? on: April 19, 2013, 01:46:23 AM
Kai has packed more muscle on his body frame than Ron at his scale.

Kai has a completely different structure. He has bigger joints than Ronnie did
and Ronnie's detail is on another level than Kai's.
There's a reason Peter McGough said Ronnie was a walking anatomy chart this
year I'm posting from.
The side chest might be off a little on the scale but on the most muscular the arms
are almost the same size and Kai's head appears a tad bigger.
Anyway, not perfect scale but you get the point here.

25  Getbig Main Boards / Gossip & Opinions / Re: Arnold vs Phil on: April 14, 2013, 10:25:13 PM
The reasons Arnold was so much lighter height for pound than today's guys are:

1. Today's guys have to build fairly large muscles in their glutes to get them striated.
The glutes are the largest muscle in the body and Arnold's weren't big.

2. The legs overall are much bigger today and that accounts for a lot of the extra weight.

3. Arnold had a peeled back but it wasn't super thick like a lot of top guys now.
(Although in 1974 his back was thicker than any other time in his career.)

4. The waists protrude which accounts for more unneeded weight.

Arnold just didn't carry a ton of muscle in the largest muscle groups; glutes, legs and back.

There are only a handful of guys that carried extreme mass with incredible aesthetics.
Arnold is one of them. The best example of a modern BB who had this trait is Levrone.

Arnold also is one of the best examples of a bodybuilder who just explodes when he poses.
Ronnie is a good example too early in his Olympia reign.
We all have seen bodybuilders that look awesome standing there but not much happens
when they start posing. Arnold was the antithesis of that.
