THE BACK BONE OF BODYBUILDING
Ryan Milton Aug 2017
Bodybuilding has been around for over a century and it was built upon men who looked to become Gods among men.
Hours and hours lifting and training to shape the body and achieve aesthetics unknown to common man.
Bodybuilding was built on proportions.
Eugene Sandow, considered the father of bodybuilding literally took a tape measure to the statues of god like figures in Greece and mapped the proportions and ratios in order to develop the first "ideal" proportions.
Since that time many others have done it as well including the legend Steve Reeves.
When bodybuilding really caught on in the early 50's and 60's everything was based on your proportion.
Bodybuilding was not about being a monster. It was purely about aesthetics and body part ratios.
How big were the arms in compassion to the calves, The back to the waist, etc
Since the dawn of the sport bodybuilding was built on proportions.
Since that time, it has gotten far off that course.
I will always side with aesthetics versus monstrosity.
What do you think?
