    Default Top 5 Bodybuilders Of All Time

    5. FRANCO COLUMBU

    Franco Columbu is known for both his highly developed physique and as a world champion powerlifter possessing incredible strength. Franco was Arnold Schwarzenegger’s closest training partner. He won 2 Mr. Olympia titles, was an actor and later became a chiropractor.
    4. FRANK ZANE


    Frank Zane is the king of symmetrical aesthetic physiques. Frank Zane won 3 Mr. Olympia titles and his signature abdominal vacuum pose is something only the rare bodybuilder is able to emulate. At his light weight of 185 lbs on stage, Frank Zane is also an inspiration to the hardgainers out there that they too can build an incredible aesthetic physique.
    3. PHIL HEATH

    With 6 Mr. Olympia titles already under his belt, the current reigning champion has the potential to go on to claim the highest number of Olympia titles in history over the next few years. Phil Heath has one of the most incredible genetics in bodybuilding history.
    2. RONNIE COLEMAN

    Ronnie Coleman won a record 8 straight Mr. Olympia titles and was the most massive and strongest bodybuilder of all time. He both dominated bodybuilding as a top pro bodybuilder and maintained a full-time career as a police officer.
    1. Arnold Schwarzenegger

    It’s easy to place Arnold Schwarzenegger at number 1. Not only did he win 7 Mr. Olympia titles, he overcame all odds and pioneered bodybuilding as we know it. Through his incredible mindset and charismatic attitude he achieved success in every industry that he took on, from bodybuilding to business to movies to politics.

    Lol. Lee Haney and Yates destroy Franco and Zane. Anyhow, opinions will vary.

    Not a fan of Frank Zane. Anyone who says "BB is all about isolations" sets a bad example for the average lifter.

    Lee Haney was Champ when I first started. What a great shape, before the boom of GH and all the other drugs:

    Very funny

    surely the top 5 should be judged purely on the number of olympias?

    that being said, 80 and 81 are known to be fixed.

    Competition bodybuilding is such a joke.

    Without a criteria of some sort it'd be a futile and aimless task deciding on any bodybuilder's ranking amongst other bodybuilders.

    Criterias could fall into the following categories for example:

    1. Mass/muscular development

    2. Muscle definition

    3. Muscle proportion

    4. Muscle symmetry

    5. Posing.

    We can expand on the above criterias by giving each criteria its very own definition before thinking of a particular bodybuilder, or bodybuilders that may fit that particular criteria or criterias. Now you see how easier it has become once you know what you're looking for!

    To give an example here; the first criteria for me lets me think of the Fox as one of the pioneers of what it means to be a mass monster. Fast forward 10 years from 1983 to 1993, and we now see ourselves looking at a blond giant of a man from Great Britain instead of a black man from Great Britain. And on we go...

    I'm not really sure where you are going with your post.
    Do you mean, in relation to the op?

    The OP has no foundation from which one can move forward, hence I provided one. To say "Top 5" or whatever, raises the question, the top 5 in what? Bodybuilding pioneers, or something else? Again, that's why I found the OP baseless, without a measuring stick to measure against.
