    I put arnold in the top 10 along with Ferigno as well as Cutler and Coleman, in which order for those 4, I cannot say as they are from different times. Number 1 all of them at certain times. hehe

    Arnold, Lee Haney, Sergio Olivia, Dexter Jackson are all awesome bbers with what bbing should be judged however guys like Yates, Ronnie, and Cutler are the best of the "new" type of bbing

    This is based more on my preferences of physique rather than what they did for bodybuilding or whether they are the best in specific terms. These are my favourites. The order of them?I have no idea.

    Arnold
    Flex Wheeler
    Kevin Levrone
    Victor Martinez
    Ronnie Coleman
    Lou Ferigno
    Phil Heath
    Jay Cutler
    Segio Olivia
    Zack Khan

    No love for Frank Zane? Come on now.

    arnold getting a vote?? come on!!!!
    the dude was big.... but you asked for greatest bodybuilder, which means, being cut, vascularity, and big. arnold and sergio olivia dont have what todays guys do...the two were my era, but these guys were big... where are the developed cut to shread legs like todays guys. the dudes in the advertisements in magazines that arnt even pro's are as big as arnold, or almost as big, but way more cut.serge nubret, frank zane, bob paris. these guys are cut and defined....franco columbos legs look like the normal big guy at any gym now days. the 60's era and 70's era the guys were big. todays guys are big, ripped to shreaded with veins everywhere. thats bodybuilding your asking about.

    another thing..
    and i am no expert on this at all. when the black prince robbie robertson was interviewed a while back the subject on drugs came up. he said in his era, they all took drugs.. but he was quick to point out that the guys today are taking a lot, lot more. so does that mean they are more ripped from the drugs cause they can train longer without tiring out, which may result in a better looking body? hell, i dont know. to me, drugs= a cheater, but thats just me..
    anyway, the guys from the 60's 70's looked big, with only a few ripped .. today, all the guys are ripped. what i loved about the older era, that you really dont see as much today.... in any sport, is the comraderie(sp) like the older era. i loved pumping iron.. all the guys training together were competeing against one another. the trained together then hung out and swam and tanned and drank.. love that part of the sport. now days, it seems like everyone hates everyone.look at a nfl game . at the end of the game, its an effort for the coaches to shake hands , and they wernt even the ones bashing heads together all game.
    sportsmanship was way better in the 60's 70's, but in my opinion, todays bodybuilders blow away the guys from that era.

    You're right about today's bodybuilders versus way back when. If today's competitors jumped in a time machine and stepped on stage in the '70s? I guess the record books would be changed in a lot of contests.

    So far as the hate or lack of sportsmanship goes, Bill Grant just gave an interview where he offered his take on that exact subject. He stated that whenever money comes into play there's the fact that helping someone might hurt you.

    Back in the day there was no money, so they only had their friendships to go by. Today, you help someone or offer a tip to a fellow competitor, you might be losing $10,000!

    Jay Cutler has been seen training with Phil Heath in the past, but Heath wasn't really a factor at the time. I wonder if Jay and Phil will be training together leading up to this year's Olympia.

    Haney
    Dorian
    Levron
    Coleman


    Though Im a fan of many current BBer's, I dont really consider any of them to be in the top 10, for the simple fact that all the men above have laid the foundation of the sport.
    If it wasnt for these guys there woulnt be the BBing we currently see today.

    Stepaukas, you make a good point. I agree to some extent that most of today's pros are bigger, however, greatest doesn't always mean biggest. I just prefer yesteryear's classic lines & symetry. Lee Labrada was always my favorite because he was a little guy who could compete with (and beat) the big guys.

    Bodybuilding is the fastest way to achieve these goals, as by definition.
