    Indeed. I just can't get over the mass differences between the newer guys and most of the old school guys. It seems like there was a dramatic shift starting in about 1991-92 once Dorian Yates came along.

    Lol @ Zane vs Ruhl.
    I agree that the biggest difference seems to be the increase in thigh size.
    Sergio's arms were amazing.

    I have no doubt Sergio would still dominate today if he had started competing in this era.

    I wish there were more Sergio pics of him at his best in the virtual posedown. He still looked amazing in the 80s, but he was waaaay past his prime.

    Speaking of "The Myth" (the original!!), I found this recently: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=G5TxnbhW_Go

    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
