    Labrada always brought the full package. Great proportions and always in shape.

    Too tough to call. In the poll I voted Bob Paris, but that picture of Danny Padilla is one of the best pictures ever.

    A few pics I found last week. I hope none are double posts.

    The pic of Sergio is a rare double bicep from 1972....easily the best version of this pose any man has ever achieved.....well IMO at least.

    Serge had the best porportions for the time, even though I am a huge Arnold fan, when he competed against Arnie and Lou in the '75 Olympia (shown in Pumping Iron), he looked the best out of the three, not as big as Louie or Arnie but the most pleasing body.

    God knows how good he would of looked a couple months before with 20 more pounds on him, if this rumour is true!

    it was a tough one....was between padilla, ray and labrada for me....but I went with shawn as he had sufficient mass, conditioning, symmetry, the whole package for me was more complete, plus he presented himself very well.

    Default Leo Robert

    French Canadian competitor Leo Robert should be included in any discussion of proportions.

    I looked at the list and some of my photos and my first instinct was Padilla. I read some of the posts and started to really appreciate Nubret. However, Nubret never impressed me in the hands up or overhead shots. Arnold crushed him in these shots. However, semi-relaxed, he is a god. Padilla, the guy is flawless at his best. Oliva was bigger, fuller, however Padilla had that awesome shape AND tremendous conditioning. I know he was short and compared to today....blah, but he really stands out in that front double vacuum...wow!

    I have always been a fan of Frank Zane's physique during his day. Then I would definitely pick Shawn Ray.

    I've always been impressed by Danny Padilla as well as Zane. It's a tough call, however I'd give Zane the number 1 spot.
