  • Simplemente el rey del fisicoculturimo despues le siguen LEE HANEY no me gusta la proporsicion del volumen de RONY COLEMAN pero tengo que admitir que es uno de los mas grandes y sobre todo sus entrenamientos eran extremos…..LOU LERRIGNO, FRANCO COLUMBUS, FRANK ZANE, DEXTER JACKSON…..

  • the idea that Arnold was only 230lbs is totally untrue, I have personally seen weigh in records from some of his contests and his weight was anywhere from 245lbs to 255lbs..

  • 1974 best version by far imo. In the years later he could be dryer and with better cuts but in 74 is the only year that his legs match his upper body and make him Look more proportional. His legs always have been subpar comparing to the torso. For that only fact i’ll give the win to 74. Great vid as always ��


  • I guess 74 is considered as his best year mostly because of that direct comparison with 75 shape in pumping iron. Most people (like myself) would naturally call 74 his best year because it has been more documented by fans over the year and I’ve been guided to believe so. So it’s great that you did your own investigation because 73 looks better to my opinion! Great video!

  • I know Arnold is most people’s body builder hero icon but to those who know more than just this Austrian there are others who are more of hero then the more tabloid PR boy Arnold Schwarzenegger which to be fair was never really very good he was lacking symmetry had weak legs and calf’s compared to his upper body. Maybe you should do a review about a real body builder like Bill Pearl for instance instead of Arnold.??

  • I believe Serg was better that year to win in 1970 and Franco deserved to win in 1975 but 71-74 was won fair and square. In 1980 was a tie but the physique and posing was better by Arnold to win fair and square in 1980, but 1970 and 1975 are definitely debatable years Sergio was better in 1970 and Franco was better in 1975 in the Pumping Iron video.

  • Arnold è veramente il più grande bodybuilder della storia! E’ incredibile vedere la sua struttura muscolare,il video ha oltre 40 anni e dimostra che potrebbe gareggiare anche oggi,ai massimi livelli! E’ la dimostrazione,nonostante l’evidente utilizzo,da parte di tutti gli atleti della sua generazione, di steroidi anabolizzanti, che la sua era vera genetica. Ai suoi tempi non utilizzavano certamente i farmaci che oggi sono disponibili,molto più potenti ad anche più potenzialmente letali!

  • 71 and 73 for mass and conditioning, 74 for pure mass and fullness. 72 he looked small compared to Sergio, and a tad soft. 75 he looked the most polished with the muscle maturity he never had before, but his leg size was definitely down compared to 73-74 so he looked a bit top heavy. Overall I think 73 was Arnold’s best year for the combination of mass, conditioning, and symmetry.

  • Arnold had the best symmetry ever and look at the abs-not like the rounded look today-yuk. Frank Zane was amazing as well but didn’t have Arnold’s mass.
