Saw Arnold comment today that his bestfriend Franco passed. As a little Italian dude myself, ive always marveled at what he was able to accomplish. https://generationiron.com/per-multiple-italian-news-sites-franco-columbu-has-tragically-passes-away/

From last interview he did that I saw w exception of shoulder issue he’s pretty healthy. Crazy how the older generation is out living the younger bodybuilders.

that is because the old school original BB's just ran AAS not the other 6 to 8 PED's BB's started to run after them. Plus their dosages were much lower.

And looked better

And even with their limited knowledge of nutrition..,compared to what is known now.., the quality of the food and environment were much better back then.
And they trained hard. Barbells, dumbbells and a few machines. Look at their workout routines and their hard training shows. You just have to look at their physiques.
Never hear people saying oh those guys looked terrible. No BB seems to be trying to get back to that original look. People are tired of the gh/slin guts.

They knew what was up back then. Size, symmetry, etc. Everyone's a mass monster now.
