the movie stay hungry was on yesterday, so i watched it again for a bit. its really amazing how in his day, arnold was the best, but compared to todays elite, he is nothing..
in the movie, i imagine he wasnt 100% contest ready, but he's fit and big, but looking at him in the movie, and even when he was winning the big o in the 70's, he looked so thin compared to the best today..
his chest as always is huge as is his arms, but his thighs look so small,not cut, and his calves look too big for his thighs. he has average abs compared to even the fitness guy models in the magazines..
you look at a bodybuilding magazine and 50 of the guys in there look better than arnold, and half of the 50 are just models built good. most all have way better abs than arnold.. arnold had 4, these guys have 6 or 8 way more defined. then the elite guys.... man, they just blow arnold away.
so much more defined and inches thicker.
arnold had a great chest, bi's and tri's, and thats it. look at his neck. thin compared to todays guys.. his legs are so thin too.
i imagine he ate as perfect as he could, trained heavy and as correct as he could and took his supplements, rested, and took his drugs, but my question... why are just about everyone in todays magazines so much more ripped, thicker and way better than arnold in his day? hell, look at ken waller in that movie.. he looks like any one of 20 guys the the local gym..even in his competitions, he's soft looking..
arnold and zane were my favorites, but todays guys are so much better..
the other guys from that era like corney, coe, katz, look like a nfl linebacker . those football guys get interviewed with no shirt on and they look like the bodybuilding stars of the 70's..
blows my mind, not seeing arnold in such a long time, then seeing him in his prime,in this movie, and he's just so thin compared to todays elite..
so whats the main reason why todays guys are lightyears ahead of how arnold looked in his prime?
