Training for classic physique17336

Hey all,

So how would an athlete that trains for classic physique differ from an athlete training for a more modern bodybuilding differ? More focus on a V Taper with small waist & smaller legs? Better proportion & smaller size? Just curious as I would like to train for a more classic physique look.

Train the same as everybody else, have the genetics that make your body fit the ideal image of classic physique.

Do enough gear to get big but not enough to get massive?

@SOLARSUPLEX you realize at my height the max weight limit is 217. That's f$cking huge. Flex Lewis is the 202lbs Olympia champion and to think add another 15 pounds to that. I know the height difference will spread the muscle out a little more but classic physique guys will probably be on just as much gear haha. At least the pros I'm saying. Amateur competition will obviously be a little more different

@Zyzzst interesting... How tall are you again?

I have to say those max # can't be something to live by. I'm sure none of them say a human(RAMY) could be 300lb at his height.

^^ this is a nonsense response. Medical chemistry has advanced so much in the past 50 years it is naive to think otherwise. -3X

I know they didn't have access to chemicals not created yet. Now you're just trolling. Do I smell yet another 3six9 account? -3X

@eknight don't even bother man. This guy doesn't realize new chemicals and chemical chains are made every single day. Especially to get past the pro hormone bans, etc. Arnold and those guys probably ran high test and that's about it. Genetics played a HUGE role in old school bodybuilding.
