That's pretty much it. Add Labrada, Ray and maybe Corney and that's all.

Haney's last Olympia routine was pretty cool.

Hitting the front double bi as the second music kicked in was pretty bad ass.

Thanks for those TA,i was there that day in 1982 at the Wembley Conference centre to see Makkawy pose,he was the first competitor on stage,i had him placed has high as 4th,i think he was in better condition in 82 compared to 83.I met him in 83 when he trained at our gym,spoke to him for a hour,biggest forearms i`ve ever seen.

I consider those two routines as dramatic performance art.  Do you think it could ever return to this, or is it past the point of no return?

Back in the 80s every gym i trained at,you would see people spending an hour after the workout practising posing,the best show i saw for posing was the 1988 British Grand Prix,back then everyone had to be a good poser.Then around 93,you had a few who started with the cupping the hand to their ear,asking for applause,and walking from side to side hitting a few shots,and its gone downhill since then.In 1984 Vince Brown was the NABBA UNiverse winner (from 1983),but competed in an EFBB show to qualify for the British finals,and he did the cupping the hand to the ear,walk from side to side,and the judges decided he didn`t do a valid posing routine and gave him zero points in that round,which cost him the contest.

And then followed the mouthing of words, lip-syncing to a rap song.

How would score Kai Greene`s posing routines if you were a judge?

Remember everyone, bodybuilding is about who has the best physique, which of course has nothing to do with how you pose it Roll Eyes

Well done IFBB....

I would give maximum points for his posing and then take away maximum points for his gymnastics.

Kai is potentially one of the greatest posers but his acrobatics are fit for guest posings and not competition.

No,you`re thinking of John Brown,Vince is from Nottingham in the UK,same as me,he was the other great junior with Brian Buchanan.Vince is the guy on the left in this pic,next to Buchanan,he was only 20 years old here.

The thing is,Vince was a great poser,but in this case at this show in 1984 his antics onstage cost him the contest.Who would have thought that a few years later people got rewarded for doing the same thing,and thats when other competitors thought why bother learning a routine,just walk back and forth and hit a bicep shot,then a MM and still get marked in first place.

He looked like Brian Buchanan/Flex W/ Melvin Anthony/Jojo T., with traps and a chest...
All of these guys had the same body structure, shape, and tiny small waist, with the same type are chest tie-INS, and clavicle width, I wouldn't be surprised if they could trace their genetics back to the same genepool... Which maybe in the Ghana region

i expected to see mekawy from the title.. flex wheeler said before that he was affected by mekawy's posing..

beside mekawy sure labrada and taylor must be mentioned as some of the best posers ever.. taylor was the only "dancing poser" who i liked his routines!!..
