Top 10 male bodybuilders 2016

Body building is considered as an art by many. Bodybuilding has gotten out of control with the sheer notion that “bigger is better” when it comes to the most impressive physiques of bodybuilders. Back in the day, it wasn’t about size. It was about aesthetics and proportionality. There wasn’t nearly as a reliance on mass to win bodybuilding titles and the drugs to do. Simply put, bodybuilders generally train a lot more than the average guy. After all, they’ve decided that their body and physique will be their tool, their career. Let us take a look at the Top 10 male bodybuilders 2016.

We start our list of Top 10 male bodybuilders 2016 with current Mr Olympia,Phil Heath. Heath has finally achieved the title after winning four consecutive times from 2011-2014. He has a near-perfect structure of huge delts, big arms, a tiny waist, and a chiseled midsection.

33-year-old four times Mr. Olympia Phil Heath is in a word: legendary. Every aspiring body builder today has seen the picture of him below and thought to himself “I did not know getting that big was even possible” and then asked “Do I even want to get that big?”

Popularly Known as “The Sardinian Strongman” in our list of Top 10 male bodybuilders 2016, Franco Columbu really defied genetics in an age where supplements were hard to come across and training methods had to be unconventional to see any kind of sizable gains. Columbu had incredibly large muscle bellies on a small frame with tiny joints. As a result, he won over the bodybuilding world winning two Mr. Olympias even after a devastating knee injury, in which he dislocated his knee during the 1977 World’s Strongest Man while carrying a refrigerator on his back. Talk about an amazing comeback!

8. Frank Zane:

Top 10 male bodybuilders 2016

When referring to leanness, we use the term “Zanelike” in bodybuilding. As such, anyone who has a name that is synonymous with bodybuilding deserves to crack the top 10 of this list. If there is one person that gym-goers would choose to look like, it would be Frank Zane. At only 190 pounds, he was as aesthetically pleasing to the eye as you can get and didn’t look like a grotesque bulky bodybuilder that much of the sport has reckoned with in today’s times due to heavy drugs and a reliance on mass to win bodybuilding titles.
