I can't believe how much mass was added on by 1986! It's a shame that his bicep never got better even years after his injury. What a nightmare!

I'm glad you guys liked the Tom Platz video I uploaded to YouTube.  Since there is talk about great quads and calves in this thread check out this other video I uploaded of Roger Stewart.  He's got some great quads and some really sick calves.  Not massive but very impressive.

Shadow and Hulkster must be the heads of the Coleman Fan Club.  Cause Platz's leg blow Colemans away.  Coleman has NO calves.  And Platzs leg measurement I am is bigger than Ronnies and if not then maybe less than an inch.  And considering Coleman outweighs Platz by 50 lbs or so.  Platz kills Coleman.  Nuff said, next.

exactly right and not only is it the size but Platz had muscles where everybody else including Coleman didn't have it, it looked like his quads inserted halfway up his stomach, freakish.

I agree, maybe if franco brought a pair of legs to the show, then it could be a bit more debatable, but as history has it now, i don't think he should have won.

Ronnie's legs are crap compared to Platz.  Ronnies legs usually have no seperation or cross striations and his calves suck compared to his Quads.  Platz is the leg king.

but nowhere near as impressive from every angle like Platz's were, Tom also had that freaky development at the top of the leg where it ties in to the hip that no one seems to have.
platz also has some of th best calves ever to go with the quads/ hams.

Man I cannot believe you Ronnie bandwagon morons, his legs are not even in the same league as Platz.   Legs includes calves which colemans are non existent, do not insult Platz and compare ronnies "lower" body with his please.   Lay down the pipe before posting that shit.......... Roll Eyes

Huge legs and symmetrical front. I'm surprised many haven't built legs like his. So many have come close, but not many have reached his size.

I was just wondering the same thing Huh

After all these years and with all the huge cycles pros are on, we still have yet to see legs as impressive as those?! Shocked

Now that's bragging rights Wink

platz wasn't balanced. that fact alone precludes him from being the best built man on the planet.

i'm not just talking a torn bicep or something. his entire upper body was a completely different animal to his lower body.

i don't think franco deserved his win, but as poor as his legs were when compared to platz they weren't COMPLETELY out of sync with his upper body.

if you ONLY look at legs then he can be compared with ronnie, but if you're looking at the whole ie what they look at in a body building contest, then there is zero comparison. ronnie would blow him off the stage, sorry.

apart from that platz was NEVER in the same condition as ronnie. as for the video clip, as impressive as it is (and it is) he wasn't in contest shape.
