"Doing more exercise with less intensity,"
Arthur Jones believes, "has all but
destroyed the actual great value
of weight training. Something
must be done . . . and quickly."
The New Bodybuilding for
Old-School Results supplies
MUCH of that "something."

I though it might be fun to put up pictures of those you thought had a best body part.

Obviously these are subjective but it should be fun regardless.

I'll start, Dave Draper best back.

Dr. Darden I would really love to have your input on which person you believe had a best ever body part.

In my book, "The New BB for Old-School Results," I interviewed Roger Schwab and we discussed the best body parts of champions from 1960-2000. He was my listings:

Forearms: Casey Viator
Biceps: Larry Scott
Triceps: Bill Pearl
Chest: Arnold Schwarzenegger
Back: Dorian Yates
Abdominals: Thierry Pastel
Thighs: Tom Platz
Calves: Chris Dickerson

I saw all the champions from 1960-2000. The guy who impressed me the most with his overall physique was the 1964 version of Boyer Coe. Boyer was only 17 then and weighed 180 pounds, but he had these outrageous arms and thick pecs. And he could bench press 400 pounds and squat with 500 pounds.

Close to my thoughts except for Chuck Sipes for forearms and Zabo for abs.

Platz on Thighs ?

For sheer mass yes, but did they look good, even from a drug enhanced genetic freak perspective - no.
Over developed , ugly and out of proportion.

Nice Guy though .

I agree with Dr. D and his "best bodyparts"....Especially Chris Dickerson for Calves. They truly had to be seem in person to be believed. Huge and unbelievably cut.

Interesting fact -- Chris almost never trained calves. Not in his entire 3 decade career. Just didn't need to.

Chris was one of two surviving triplets. (Third brother died young.) I met his brother once, while he was wearing shorts.

Wow. The guy had the exact same "monster calves" as Chris. I'm talking Pro bodybuilder caliber....BUT he didn't work out at all. Not at ALL.

Who says the "genetic lottery" is fair?

Good training to all!

Yep. And while genetics strongly affect everything, it's always seemed to me that calves and forearms are the most genetic muscles if you will.

I have read that Lee Priest?s physique was used as a starting point for the CGI renderings of The Hulk, for the Ang Lee version of the movie.

A fair fight in a boxing ring. What's wrong with that? I'm keen to know if any of these 'best body' types were actually tough men. Can anyone separate the vain from the tough? Not knowing any of these men I wouldn't know.

Backtrack,

Do think big muscles mean you can fight?

What would be the point of these guys fighting other than to satisfy your apparently warped mind?

Do you do a lot of fighting at the gym where you train?

It took most big bodybuilders years of tough grinding workouts to get where they were,being able to take punches to the head is only one of many tests to see how tough one is. I've followed boxing since I was a kid. Joe Frazier was one of my heros but knowing what it does to the brain I came to the realization that boxing is a barbaric sport that probably should have been banned long ago.

Yeah, Smokin' Joe ....

I saw the 'Thrilla in Manilla' live on closed circuit TV at the Spectrum in Phila when it happened. LOL, cost $15.00 and people thought I was nuts to spend 'that kind of money' to see it. It's still the most exciting sporting event I ever saw.

Both of those guys fought their hearts out that night.
