    Zane for sure.
    "Doc, If I had known I was going to live this long I would have taken better care of myself..."

    Est unusquisque faber ipsae suae fortunae.

    We Americans scoff at the likes of African witch doctors yet spend 100's of millions of dollars on fake reducing systems.

    The only regular exercise he gets is stretching the truth.

    His intellect is not replenished, he is only an animal, only sensible in the duller parts...

    Zane was too small/skinny.

    Zane was kind of a big Steve Reves, a little small to me, not that I look like that

    Honestly I never studied Labrada seriously and am impressed with that photo. But he has a completely different look than Zane. He is more "stocky" and massive than Zane. Zane is more "fluid" and aesthetic in my opinion. Zane's figure is closest to my body type so I emualate him and use him as a role model. Labrada looks graet too but I just don't have his frame and mass and as we all know "beauty is in the eye of the beholder" and we all tend to favor things we can personally identify with.

    posting his pic does not change the fact that he competed at around 175lbs at 5' 9"!!!

    Labrada was referred to as "Mr. Symmetry", never as being "stocky" or "massive", cause he was neither.

    Let's not forget that Zane was one of the few people to beat Arnold Schwarzenegger - pretty impressive for a "light weight".

    Here is some other interesting info:

    Frank Zane won Mr. Olympia, bodybuilding's highest title, 3 times: 1977, 1978, 1979.



    Defeated Arnold Schwarzenegger in the 1968 Mr. Universe competition in Miami , Florida. He also won Mr. Universe 2 more times in London, England in 1970 and 1972.

    Oh - the other part of the symmetry that is harder to judge is "intelligence". Zane is one of the most educated Bodybuilders in the history of the sport.
