The Greatest of All Time

When the term "greatest of all time" is thrown out, in the world of bodybuilding, most immediately jump to Arnold, but he did not even win the most Mr. Olympia titles. How then, is one supposed to judge the best of all time? Is it simply by number of titles? If so, then Ronnie Coleman would be the greatest of all time. Is it by sheer amount of exposure and fame? If so, then Arnold would be the greatest of all time. In my humble opinion, looking merely at the physiques of all the athletes to ever win Mr. Olympia, the greatest of all time has to be Dorian Yates. His sheer size and wonderful shape, made him the most successful bodybuilder of his era. Who is the greatest bodybuilder, ever, in your opinion?
Pictured below (top to bottom) are Arnold Schwarzenegger, Ronnie Coleman, and Dorian Yates.


  1. To me, the first picture looks most normal, and much less veiny and scary. I would vote for him. He still looks human while obviously being very strong. The other two look way too over the top.

  2. I think it is interesting to see that version of Arnold that is featured in the top picture. All I have ever known him as is the actor in movies I have seen. The man has accomplished a lot in his life.
