It has been debated and many say it is real..I belive it is manily b/c his back was beyond anything so the rest of him had to catch up..I blive that pic was just at a time the rest of him was'nt up to par he ha d a 300lber back on a 250lb body...

Yeah his lats are ridiculous but Storm's post makes sense to me. If you look at pictures of him when he was younger and just starting to train his back/lats were growing enormously and way faster than the rest of his body.

i think that it may be fake. look at his lower back just a smidge above his suit. It looks like it is a line from something. I think that it may be a prop that someone put on to make themselves look like they were strong. but that is just a speculation.

Uh that is a totally dif pose plus that is years later then the first pic so again his back was ligth years ahead of his other parts and other guys..So put the same back on the same guy how is let's say 30-40lbs lighter and you got the pic..How hard is that to belive that pic has been around for awhile...

I agree with Storm. Hes not even spreadin his wings in that pic. Plus hes way leaner.

Dorian had a great back, and his calves were nice, but he had no arms, a blocky midsection and his symmetry and balance was not up to par. In fact his symmetry looked terrible even in his younger days. He had the Jay Cutler type of blocky midsection with a lack of thigh sweep that resulted in a body that was not Olympia material in my book. Compare him to guys like Sergio Olivia who had true symmetry and balance and he looks like an eye sore.

Let's not hug Dorians testies just because he won Mr.O 7 times. How about I provide pics while I prove my point.

http://digilander.libero.it/gruppociak/dy95.jpg

That's Mr O material? He looks like a cow.

http://digilander.libero.it/mikementzer/Yates13.jpg

Where the hell is his arms? Where the hell is his left bicep? This is not good.

http://digilander.libero.it/mrolympia2/dy60.jpg <-- sh*ty arms confirmed.

http://www.schwarzenegger.it/mro/yates/dy121.jpg <-- that's enough to make me vomit. Are you telling me that THAT body should represent bodybuilding?

You both sound like the typical Dorian azz kissers. To hell with some stupid "bad boy" persona and image that people clung to... this is bodybuilding, and you'll be judged based on what you bring (or don't bring) to the table. He was overrated and he looked like total sh*t in his later years.

As far as my pic goes... I'll respect whatever you have to say when I see your pic posted. You obviously know how to post pictures. Let me guess... you can't afford a throw away camera, or you don't have a printer? right? lol

Wow you really are clueless Doria too the spot in a whole nother direction before there beasts were on stage he was the first to make a huge offseason and push the limits of what is big on stage..

Um post up your pics kidd all I se is your litle ol avatar..My pics are not hard to find blind boy..Your history on BB is small and weak as is the look of your avatar so have some damn respect for one of the pioneers of the sport..

I am not abig Dorian fan PB I do respect what he did for the sport hell I dont like the look of Arnie but he broght the sprot to main stream and did it all for what we have today to a degree..I am not going to bash the way he had skinny legs and how he lied about his arm size when mine are just as big as his at 19in..

Get a grip on yourself your tunnel vision is cluding the rest of what is going on so knock off oyur attitude or your gone form here we are not going to put up with bullshit antics from a nobody who just wants to start trouble..

So if you care to compare pics with me go right ahead I can tell you right now your gonna lose...

until u get a body any similar to the V-shape or size that Dorian achieved, then i will agree with wot u say. of course there are going to be differentiation of opinions to Dorian, and im sure he knows the weak spot were his arms because not every body builder is ever 100% sure of themselves. besides, arms arnt everything in body building. u have have to repsect Dorian for his sheer size of thighs and back alone...

again, i dont understand how u want me to prove myself in pictures, u expect ME to look like arnie simply because i represent a different view on ur opinion of Dorian Yates. Wow, that would really prove a point. just because someone isnt huge, like im sure u r Smile doesnt mean they dont know anything about bodybuilding. now get back to ur arms n chest excercises.

Yes... he was the first to push the limits in mass. He can not be discredited for that. Did he look good doing it? No he did not.
Dorian pioneered maximum mass on stage... he is far from being a pioneer of "the sport".
Even if you did mention how Arnold had skinny legs... so what? If you don't critisize yourself then you'll never progress in development. To critisize anything is to point out the weak points. Weak points are pointed out in order to improve on them. Critisizing is a must for progression so if I critisize Dorians weak points in the midst of a bunch of people who praise him as if he is histories best bodybuilder... don't get emotional. There's always room to shed reality in the midst of people who are off track.

I gave Dorian love & hate. I said that he had "a great back" and nice calves... did I not? His legs were acceptablly massive but not shapely. You two talk as if my only aim was to bash the man. storm results to childish insults by calling my post "retarded", and then has the nerve to accuse me of "starting trouble" and having an "attitude" and giving "bullshit antics"? You got some nerve. I pointed out the truth... deal with it. Don't get emotional. I don't care to compare pics with you... thanks for the offer, but no thanks. What I presented in my posts is solid and have not been discredited. Simple as that. All you two have done is made a poor attempt at getting personal insted of dealing with what I have presented on a level that might show that you have SOME knowledge of what a good body looks like. Nuff said.

u started the personal stuff asking for pictures of us to prove our point? and like i said, simply because someone doesnt have a hugely developed body does not mean they do not no anything about body building.
i respect ur point, every body builder has their weakness, but i did say that before your post...
even so, it is hard to crticise someone that carried the size that Dorian did and present it on stage. Dorian carried flaws, like all bodybuilders, and his definition was not great, yet stop bitching about it so badly and realise the true size of the guy. he worked his ass to get into shape, and yes he did look pretty good even through he carried a lack of arms. tbh, i would prfer to be his size that to simply be defined.  

04 May 2006 19:38

He didn't have weak arms they were just not up to par with his back plus he tore his bicep really bad as you lie to post pics of that and make that out to be a weakness when it actually was a very bad injury..

You come on here and start blasting one of the best BB in the world what do you expect to happen especially since you talk trash about pics yet yours is a skinny looking kidd so get real maybe you think you can achive the look of a Flex Wheeler (yea right) and mass and conditioning like Dorian is way out of your league (of course) so put up or shut up post your pics since you can dish it out let's see if you can take it spagetti arms...

First of all, it was'nt me talking about posting or comparing pics it was storm. Second of all... if you look at the "shity arms confirmed" pic you'll see that he is flexing his RIGHT ARM. And on the prior pic he is flexing both and I point out his weak LEFT ARM. BOTH arms were shitty on top of not being up to par with the rest of him. A body builder with a great back and NO ARMS???? That's soo incomplete.

As for my so-called pasta arms... My arms are 23 and a half inches from armpit to ristbone. They are not up to par with the rest of my body. I can critisize my own arms 10 times better than you can and I have no problem doing it. Nobody says that I have better arms than what I really have anyways. Even with long arms... they are far from looking like spaghetti (if you've ever eaten spaghetti that looks like what you see in my avator then you'd be dead). I still don't see your pics. Where are these so-called easy to find pics of yours. 19 inch arms? How much of that is fat? How much of it is steroid juice?

Oh... I see your pic flexing your abs. Impressed? Somewhat. Blown away? Not at all. Get off Doirans nut sack. He'll be needing those. Thanks for pointing out my arms. Seeing that my triceps were in shadow I wondered if they look too small compared to my body. And seeing that you are 32 years old? I have lost a bit of respect for your size. I can name at least 10 guys right now past your level who are under 23 years old.

I take that back. I saw some of your pics that you posted of yourself in the offseason. Your obliques look as wide as your lats. You have arms size and you look fairly wide from shoulder to shoulder but you look like shit. Do you have any better pics than that?

I just looked at the picture at the start of this thread....man yknow maybe you guys have a different opinion on this but .... would you really wanna look like that? I mean to me it looks freakish, out of proportion, and nasty. If your back was actually that big you couldn't even drive a normal car or go to the movies or anything...it's just rediculous IMO. I've seen other pictures that I consider similar where someone has some nasty huge bicep or quads the size of a wakeboard it just isn't right...doesn't look right... like I said that's IMO.

Most people can't, won't,and don't want to look like that (including most of us). But that's what makes them freaks and that's why we love to see them at shows and in magazines. They are at the extreme edge of what a human can achieve.  

13 Aug 2006 21:53
LukeVTS
theyve gone way past what a normal human can achieve! standard of bodybuilding is nothing short of freakish these days. ive got the upmost respect for such diciplin and dedication. but like smb said. i would like to be anywhere near that size!
