    I like Arnold Shwarzzenegger for all he has done for Bodybuilding and everything he has ever achieved. He has definately accomplished more than most of could in a few life times.

    Next would be Lee Priest because of his strong opinions in bb'ing, because he's Australian, his funny casual personality, and because he's 5'4" tall :P

    Third would be Jay Cutler because of his work ethic, his undying dedication in bb'ing, and he seems like a normal down to earth guy.

    Oh and Bob Cicherillo is good too. Funny guy and really knows the sport.

    I would like to know who are the favorite bodybuilders, based on looks, not on achievements, like, for example, my favorite bodybuilder is Dorian Yates, because he is the one who looks the most awesome out all the other bodybuilders, to me, and that's just my own personal opinion...His muscle density, his outstanding back development, awesome legs and calves, great shoulders, arms, forearms..etc, he was so f**king awesome! On top of that, he dominated the 90's, that was the time when I was growing up as a teenager...on top of that, he was the first Mr Olympia to be considered a ''freak'', evryone was like ''what is he on? he is awesome!'' then Arnold was outstanding! His physique was the most beautiful one! Tiny waist, broad shoulders, huge chest and arms, great calves, there's no one like Arnold!...and Franco, when I saw him in the movie ''pumping Iron'' he blew me away, he is a freak of muscle mass, strength and power, that little Italian guy (I'm also Italian) was a freak!

    A child does not learn to squat from the top down. In other words, he does not suddenly make a conscious decision one day to squat. Actually, he is squatting one day and make the conscious decision to stand. Squatting precedes standing in the developmental sequence. This is the way a child's brain learns to use the body as the child develops movement patterns. Therefore, a child is probably crawling, rocks back into a squatting position with the back completely relaxed and the hips completely flexed, and stands when he has enough hip strength. This approach makes a lot of sense and can be applied to relearning the deep squat movement if it is lost. -Gray Cook

    Definitely Dorian Yates. Not only for his muscle density and muscular development, but for his attitude towards training, his intensity, and his work ethic.

    Why has no one mentioned him yet??? This is about looks people!! :P

    None other, than Flex Wheeler. Of course this is just my opinion, but no one can touch him in terms of proportions, symmetry, muscualrity and size all together. Which is what it should be judged on..

    I forgot his name but I love (think his name is) Trever Levane and Melven Anthony love the show they make.
    I am SO glad I'm female.
    Seriously - I had NO IDEA it was this complicated.

    Too many to list, but I'll add Dexter seeing as no one has mentioned him yet. His mid-section is outstanding.

    I'll say Steve Reeves, he had the best looking body of all time and it was all done without drugs.

    Again, I can agree with this. Zane, most aesthetic body ever.

    Arnold had the greatest look when he was 19 years old.
