I watched an old Italian sword and sandals movie with Mark Forest (real name Lou Degni) and he has an impressive back for the 60's.  Some of the pics I've seen also show amazing ab development.  Degni was definitely up there with reeves and lewis as one of the best of the big screen hercules.

Don Howorth was one of the best of that era.

Supposedly, Lou got his massive back spread by doing scapular rotations, an exercise he passed on to Larry Scott.  I've tried to figure them out, but have never gotten the exercise right.  Anyone used them with success?
