    This has to be the best one out amongst the other gems you've produced..

    felt like it was yesterday I was at the '84 Mr. O.

    I remember I started weight training my first yr and went down to the ticket box office to purchase my tkts to the pre-judging and finals at the Felt Forum in MSG.. tkts were 30 bucks PJ and 50 for the finals.

    I remember going down to the front stage and watching him kneel and pray with his wife after winning the Sandow.. awesome moment.

    The posing round is what I miss the most back in those days.. actual posing routines that were judged. They need to bring that back.

    Great stuff John, especially the rare footage you put in..

    2 thumbs up! Thanks again John!

    Hard to say, I guess it depends on if you like the extreme size of the last couple of decades or the more symmetrical, classic physique of the '70's and '80's. I prefer the classic, symmetrical physiques so I would
    put Arnold first and Haney second.

    No offense, but Lee should be ranked right in 2nd.

    In my book, lee Haney will ALWAYS be the greatest Mr. O EVER!! Ronnie was freakier but Lee had an unreal shape for a guy THAT big! Tiny waist and could pose too! Always used real powerful music! The routine at the 1991 O was a perfect ending to his career!

    That was my favorite part of the interview, where he talks about his posing, how he picked the music for each routine and just how important presentation was. And how about that posing routine from Makkawy at the '84 Olympia? Wow, I still get goosebumps watching that 30 years later.

    John, any chance you can get the Magical Egyptian?

    You know who I'm talking about lol..

    would love to hear him and his training with Vince Gironda and his posing style.

    I have an old Muscle Builder magazine in which Arnold says that he limited his stage weight to about 235 pounds because that was the weight where his physique was still very aesthetic and pleasing along
    with having enough muscle mass. Zane, Labrada and Paris all thought along the same lines but to hear Arnold talk like that, it really shows how different bodybuilding was back in the '70's and '80's. Haney
    also mentioned that he worked hard to build 2-3 pounds of muscle each year because he wanted the muscle to go in the right places and he wanted to keep his waist small. Somewhere along the line, we lost
    that emphasis on the aesthetic appeal (as well as the posing) and bodybuilding went from a sport in which they were looking for the perfect physique to a freak show in which they were looking for the most mass
    combined with conditioning. Once you go past a certain size, the aesthetics and shape of the physique are compromised, even if the bodybuilder is ripped and rock hard. It's too bad they lost that aesthetic ideal because
    the physiques were much better (not bigger but better) in the '70's and '80's.

    I think the last year where guys looked great was the 1992 Olympia. Other than Momo nobody had a distended belly. Look at how small Shawn, Labrada, Cotrell and even Yates wasit looked. Come 1993 when Dorian changed his look, guys all started to get heavier and heavier in the off season. Guys would hit 300lbs and eat HUGE amounts of food to get that mass at all cost look.
