    Well Sergio Oliva is way up there as best ever so yeah... And although he didn't compete that much in the 70's he did and so yeah his clearly the best of the 70's without Arnold.

    Frank Zane has more wins of cause during the 70's. But can he really beat Sergio?

    Did you ever Serge so hard you Nubret
    We're dodging more ninjitsu attacks than Flex Wheeler. We're ducking more bullets than George Farah. We're facing more death than a kid leg pressing at Branch Warren's gym.

    You can't stop us. You can't hold us back.

    Sergio then Serge. I think Sergio was the best in general anyway including Arnold.

    Edit: Thread needs more pictures. Sergio ain't nothin' to mess with

    (Arnold)
    Serge Nubret.
    Sergio Oliva
    Franko Columbo

    In that order for me.

    In that pic with the beard serge said that was him before joe weider forced him to lose 12 pounds. If he had ended Arnolds run and took an O home with him on top of his other victorys, his legacy could be very different.

    He is already my second favourite ever tho.

    Interesting topic.
    If there had never been an Arnold; Sergio would have been the best body builder the world had ever seen.
    Until Ronnie.

    The best bodybuilder of the 70s, besides Arnold, IMO would be Franco.
    He was consistently in Arnolds shadow; figuratively and literally.

    I love Sergio, but he wasn't truly the best of the 1970's. too smooth. that's what Arnold changed! Zane is one of my faves and looks great, but I think Robby Robinson never got his due.

    We're dodging more ninjitsu attacks than Flex Wheeler. We're ducking more bullets than George Farah. We're facing more death than a kid leg pressing at Branch Warren's gym.

    You can't stop us. You can't hold us back.

    In that order for me.

    In that pic with the beard serge said that was him before joe weider forced him to lose 12 pounds. If he had ended Arnolds run and took an O home with him on top of his other victorys, his legacy could be very different.

    He is already my second favourite ever tho.

    I guess you could also say Sergio, but his were all prior to the 70s.

    I would have to go with Franco personally. 1 Olympia title, 2 Under-200lbs titles, and a second place to Arnold in 73. Plus, I think he was physically better than Zane.

    More photoshopped pics of Serge...

    I think he is the most shopped classical bodybuilder.
