      agreed.

      To this day Sergio has one of the top 10, maybe 5, overall best physiques ever in BBing. I think.

        Arnold was always a better all round product to push bodybuilding forward.
        can you imagine making the same money out of Sergio?

          I can see it now: Sergio Oliva for Governor of California

          Actually, I am probably one of the few people around that didn't like Arnold's physique all that much. I always that he was kind of disproportional compared to some of the other guys he was up against (ie Oliva, Columbu, Dickerson, Mentzer, Zane).

          I would definitely prefer Arnold's physique over Cutler's, but I honestly don't want either of their physiques. I want to build the best version of my body that I can.

          I am not intending to get into an argument with anyone, that is just how I feel.

          As far as bringing bodybuilding more into the spotlight, Arnold was/is an excellent choice.

          Oh, and re: the measurements... who cares? The whole bodybuilding game is about appearance isn't it? The point is to judge what they look like, not what they weigh or how big their arms measure. The point is who looks to be the most muscular, most ripped, most proportional, and, most importantly, most impressive out of everyone on stage. Think of it this way, when comparing the beauty of two people's faces, do you measure their noses and the distance between their eyes, and the radius of their nostrils? No... you just look at the whole picture. You might notice certain details from time to time, but for the most part you are going to be struck by the overall composition and appearance, not the measurements.

                  Sergio had a better physique, but Arnold had the charisma. It showed on stage, and obviously carried over into the entertainment industry. NOt taking away from Arnold's physique, but Sergio was a freak of nature.

                    I wouldn't say "never," since he won quite a few comps, especially before the advent of The Oak. He certainly never did as well again, of course.

                    The Arnie measurements are wrong. Arthur Jones measured him and found his arms to be 19 and change, after a slight pump from chins with a towel.

                      ure tellin me that Arnold's arms, even pumped, were only 19" around?


                      Answer- COMPLETELY FALSE.

                      whoever reported that, or Arthur Jones who measured that...off....had to be Stevie Wonder doing the measurements.


                      that's sum of the most ridiculous shit ive ever heard LOL

                        Sergio (physique wise) blew Arnold out of the water. It was more political.

                          weren't arnold's arms 22" during the offseason - when he was carrying extra fat and water?

                            Ummm, no. You need to go do some reading, kiddo. Arthur Jones measured hundreds of arms in the '70s, and most were under 18". I think the only true 20" arms he found were on Sergio and Viator; all the rest were boasts and exagerations. Arnold had 19 and change, no more, when Jones measured him. Nonetheles, those are some big arms, I remind you, much larger than most. An 18" arm is huge on most people, for instance, Metzer's arms measured 18" and change at their largest. Would you say he had small arms? Keep in mind, the disgustoids we see today are using massive amounts of roids and stuff that wasn't available to Arnie and the others back in the day; their arms just were not as big. I suspect the bloated pythons we see today are the result of synthol, roids, and whatever else people shoot into themselves as well as a lot of exageration.

                              I think that it was less political than economic. Didn't Wieder say that Arnold sold ten times as many magazines than Sergio when he was on the cover? I agree, though, Sergio was better.

                                considering arnolds long limbs and tall frame i would have to believe that 19in. arms would look EXTREMLY small. i also agree that stevie wonder must have done the measuring
