    Question Is Arnold the GOAT ?

    Is Arnold what Bruce Lee is to martial arts or Bob Marley is to reggae music ? For regular people he is probbably the most recognizable name in bodybuilding, but is he really the best ever ?

    This might be a dumb question. but I really don't know if there is someone else who has been superior to him but without the movies and stuff.

    Yes. Ask any random person on the street and they know who he is. They likely don't know Jay Cutler or Ronnie Coleman though. He's also the one that really popularized the sport, before him nobody cared.

    GOAT imo. Had the build, confidence, and the mind games/psych outs. He beat a lot guys before even he got on stage.

    There's everyone else, and there's Arnold.

    He's probably got more people into the gym and watching bodybuilding events than any other figure in the sport.

    I just watched "Pumping Iron" on YouTube again recently and in his prime Arnold really was larger than life.

    Take away the "movies and stuff," and you still have a great bodybuilder (as opposed to a 'celebrity') with Arnold.


    But The G.O.A.T? I don't know about that. IMO, there were a few guys who never even won a single Mr. Olympia who could seriously be considered as being better than Arnold, physique-wise. Kevin Levrone and Flex Wheeler come to mind immediately here.



    Let the arguing begin!
    No brain, no gain.

    You can't out-train bad nutrition.

    "The fitness and nutrition world is a breeding ground for obsessive-compulsive behavior. The irony is that many of the things people worry about have no impact on results either way, and therefore aren't worth an ounce of concern."--Alan Aragon

    I think that he is. Even though his physique would not even be competitive in the amatuer ranks, it's still, I believe, the greatest of all time. It just looks right...and amazing, lol.

    I'm positive the Roman Empire started falling because of its overuse of abbreviations. It took me five or six views of this thread to decode what GOAT was.

    I just saw another thread in another forum where a woman wrote she was recovering from ED. If I hadn't opened the thread, I'd never know she meant something other than Erectile Dysfunction.

    I despise abbreviations.

    Agreed. I don't like the look of most of the top guys today compared to Arnold. Just because they're bigger or whatever, doesn't mean better. Arnold's physique was more like a work of art than a science experiment.

    Greatest of All Time and I am one that says yes to Arnold. If I had a 1/10th of his dedication, my waist would be 10" less and still the same strength level I'm at. He was 100% goal oriented and achieved all his goals. He was the best of his era and I think he would be the best now if he had the same "advantages" they have today. His drive would be matched only by probably Coleman. JMHO. TFW Marius can't figure out what tfw means
    Masters Nationals. Las Vegas 2014. It starts now.

    I didn't just wake up one day and decide to get stronger. I wake up every day and decide to get stronger.

    I don't train to beat my competition, I train so they don't beat me.

    Arnold's contribution to bodybuilding was immense. He was the best of his era. Is he GOAT?
    IDK. We all have our opinions. If he isn't GOAT he is surely in a small group of finalists.

    Damn straight Arnold is the GOAT of bodybuilding.
    Why?
    Charisma.

    Other Mr.O's may be better bodybuilders but none of them has nor will drawn so many to bodybuilding as Arnold.
    Imo, as Mr. Olympia part of that pay cheque is to represent bodybuilding and be its ambassador.
    No one did it like him.

    Ronnie Coleman, fantastic bodybuilder...way better than Arnold...and had some awesome catch phrases...but imo, this man barely speaks English.

    Why?
    Charisma.

    Other Mr.O's may be better bodybuilders but none of them has nor will drawn so many to bodybuilding as Arnold.

    Arnold would have never been "Arnold" without Joe Weider and Weider would not had been "Weider" without Arnold. The rest is history, as they say. I admire Arnold as a bodybuilder, although I don't think he deserved to win his last Mr. Olympia during his "comeback". I think the entire show was rigged and did more harm to the sport than good.

    From a purely physical point of view, I much prefer bodybuilding physiques of the 1970s/1980s as opposed to the growth hormone injected guys we see today with the stomachs. Although, I wouldn't say Arnold had the best body of all time.

    I think Frank Zane set the golden standard for bodybuilding...

    Zane was amazing too
    and still is in great shape. no secret: keep training, keep good diet. and easier if you didn't overdue steroids.
    Arnold didn't (usually these guys did short cycles, and one or two drugs only) but he stopped training and dieting
    his heart surgery also has had an effect imho.

    I second Frank Zane if we're going on aesthetics only.

    Zane's physique blew everyone away. And the guy destroyed everyone with a body less than 200lbs.
