Never again will the IFBB have so much talent at one time.  Let's name some: Coleman, Yates, Ray, Wheeler, Levrone, Nasser, Cormier, Dillett, Jackson, etc.... even 2nd and 3rd tier pros like Gunter and Matarazzo, made more waves then today's losers.  Feel free to add more names to the list.  Tongue

Coleman was at his best in the late 90's.  Who do we have today?  Heath?, Kai?, burnt-out Cutler?  Please.

I think 90s were best considering competition and talent but early 2000s were exciting too. Internet made following bodybuilding easy and we still had Flex, Shawn and Kevin alongside Ronnie. When those guys retired Ronnie was basically pro bodybuilding for many years and when Ronnie retired we had nothing left. Dark ages since 2006...

Kai has really pushed the envelope

That's a very developed, massive back, also the legs are huge and the hams(viewed from the side) alone are the size of some peoples legs

Arms and delts also, but nowdays with the oil...

Heath lacks width, but I suppose he is the best there is ATM

This. Number one sign of getting old is nostalgic exaggeration.

Same shit with people complaining about Getbig all the time. Get over it and live in the moment a little!

The 1950's were the golden age of bodybuilding, the 1990's were the golden years of everything else.

I was fortunate to see a few shows in the 90's.

1988, 1990, 1993, 1994 Olympias
1989 (first), 1994, 1995 Arnold Classics

For Galeniko's post.

1. Kevin is too old to compete now and it would make no sense to try. He's closing 50.
2. Jp Fux had a few good showings like 1997 Olympia where he was seventh. I think he had more potential that he ever showed on stage.
3. Ruhl was more like 2000s guy. I think he alongside with Dexter made the most gains and improved for many years. Too bad all the injuries piled up.
3. Nasser back's wasn't elite but it was still good. He had great overall package and was one the best for many years.
4. I think Shawn had plenty of muscle. 215 with that height. He wasn't small by any means.
5. Matarazzo really couldn't hang with the pro's of that era. His biggest achievement was beating Flex as an amateur. So I agree with you Galeniko. Although he was ninth in 1998 at the O.

6. Dillet's posing was awful. He couldn't do the back poses right so it always made his back look much worse than it was.

I agree...even the 80'sa guys were really good.....the 4th 3rd and 4th tier guys back in the 80's and 90's would blow away todays guys.....The Weiders wouldnt have even let today's guys compete

the 90s were more entertaining, that's for sure.

these days everybody looks the same. back in '96'97 it was a big deal when levrone put on 15lbs of muscle.... now it's routine. the "specialness" or whatever you want to call it is gone. it seems wayyyy easier these days. take a guy with good genetics, add in 2-3g test, plus 1-2g more other shit, and as much cheap chinese $1.2/iu gh as you can afford and everybody looks the same.

the 'freak-factor' is gone.... everybody's a freak.

70's were cooler.

80's were much nicer.

90's were crazy big cool.

2000's were rude.

2010's starting sort of boring.
