It's certainly close when they're standing relaxed.

Here's one flexed:

Arnold at 85% still wins. An 100% Mentzer is still around 5th place.

Hate to admit it but both Zane and Dickerson have Arnold beat in the back standing relaxed. That is really the only position that Dickerson looks good in. Great back and calves.

Speaking of "Mentzer is coming" :


Mike  carried on with his assessment of the 1980 Olympia. “If Arnold had been in his 1974 shape then I could have accepted his win, but on the night he was nowhere near that condition, I would have put him 5th or 6th but Weider wanted him on top and me shafted because I had been talking against his and Arnold’s ridiculous 20 sets a bodypart training routines. Joe thought it would show his training was superior to heavy duty if I lost and Arnold won. And I was not the only one shafted – Boyer Coe and Roger Walker both looked great and should have placed above Arnold.”



Frank Zane and Chris Dickerson who came third and second had not been mentioned by Mike so when asked whether he thought they should have beaten Arnold. Mike replied “Yes they should but I will qualify that by saying they should not beat big guys in shape – this is bodybuilding not ballet dancing! Zane is too small to be mr Olympia yet they gave it to him three times, even beating me in ’79. And Dickerson may have great calves but look at his arms! He’s got no biceps to speak of yet still wins shows, it just proves things are fixed.”

Arnold trump'd Mentzer - better structure, taller and had a lot of hype going for him. His abs could have been thicker.
