1. inconsequential

2. Even Brunschawgger later admitted that OLIVA looked better.


Have you watched the film of that? I have and Arnold looked much better than Sergio.

I have a vintage copy of "Muscle" in my basment with all the black and whites Sergio was not just a little better he was miles better

I have a digitally remastered copy and Arnold is way more cut, poses much better and is almost as big as Sergio. I will grant you 1972 was Arnolds worst year besides 1980 but he was still much better than the bloated Sergio.

Your last commment "bloated Sergio" shows you know absolutely nothing about BBing, and your one of Arnies gay boys.

Sergio was bloated in every show. If he had any idea how to diet and change his drug use before a show he could have beaten Arnold.

Bodybuilding is not just about size, Sergio never learned that lesson.

sergio DID beat arnold and won the olympia title.

even arnold was gobsmacked by the myth and accepted 2nd place before they even walked on stage. check your facts.

to say sergio was bloated displays your ignorance too. sergio was so far ahead of any other bber that no one even bothered to compete with him. the only reason arnold was heavily favoured by weider was because of the colour of sergio's skin and the fact that he was from a communist country (cuba). it was a double strike for sergio and weider knew there was no way he could sell sergio. enter arnold and the rest is history.

I remember reading something by Mentzer which he wrote that while backstage at the 1980 Mr. Olympia, seeing Arnold in his trunks backstage gave him a tremendous boost in confidence. He thought at that moment "Not only am I going to win the Olympia, but I'm also going to beat Arnold Schwarzenegger!"

these photos posted here are from the year before the 1980 mr. Olympia. they were in a 1979 Muscle Builder/Power

Best conditioning there was Dickerson.

Platz was ripped off.

Zane was great, but past prime, and it showed...

Now in '81... thats when Platz and Padilla really got ripped off. No politics Roll Eyes

I was at 1980 Mr.Olympia , it was set up audience was booooiiiing Arnold , Joe Weider cowardly run of the stage.
Two australian judges Jan Jansen & Frank Burwash (honest guys) have not show up for the final, this is the fact.

OK, he still had the monster calves, but his thighs were what, about 22 inches.....??

400# vertical leg  presses for reps, along with 135# stiff legged deadlifts for hams do not cut it for the O.

True that.

As I have stated here before I ran into Mentzer outside of Gold's Venice in 1988, the meth years, and he was as cookoo as a coco puff.

In fact he was so out of shape, huge pot belly, filthy clothes, I did not even recognize him-dead serious. I thought he was one of the local homeless beach bums....
