Lou Ferrigno's Hercules
« on: November 28, 2012, 05:12:43 PM »
Although the mighty body of Lou Ferrigno was worked also with steriords, this guy has my respect.  I see  the first film of Hercules he did some weeks before I met Arnold as Conan the Destroyer.  His shape and volumen was so good that even Arnold's body in Conan seems small.  Lou was then my BB idol.  I saw that film with my parents and even now is very boring to see it again represent my official iniciation in lookint after a roll of strong man.  Now, as times, pass, I prefer Arnold's one.  In that film he represent the idea if Conan to the real perfection as drawn by the hand of John Buscema in the seventies.

It's very interesting here to compare this photo of Lou with this other of Reg:



Wooow!   Who is better?   I prefer Reg, more lats spread and even natural.   seeing a comparation like this you know whty Reg told in 1983 that if he was young again he will win again and be the number one in bodybuilding, even with a non roids usage!!

There is a problem with the links of the images, but anyway.  Lou is special for me.  I already said it.  But also because we have a similar psycologie.  He has a great heart and view the world many times throught his sentiments.  This sometimes is dangerous.  If you compare it with the personality of Arnold, he is a rational person, not an emotional person. So Arnold try to put off-center Lou.
