    Personally I dig the classic bodybuilding physique much more than todays hardcore huge look. My goals are much more in line with the classic look.

    gotta say that i agree with the classical look. i think ive almost reached the ideal size for my frame without looking bloated and too big... just need to shave body fat. we'll see i guess

    Frank Zane is probably the coolest body builder ever. In my opinion of course. But he just looks so perfect. Like Atlas, holding up the world.

    I think people at this forum have a higher chance of becoming the new ronnie coleman than most the people I see at gyms, I wouldnt rule it out entirely.

    I like a Frank Zane build simply because his build is actually somewhat attainable without massive amounts of AS.
