The first 98 backshot IS AMAZING!!!
Kills pretty much everything else on those photos imo..(not the 03 back shot though...but the conditioning)

2000 was his best shape to me, in terms of mass and aestethics he was perfect.From 2001 on his waistline expanded too much, but the mass he gained was just freaky!!!In 2005 the left tricep and left side of the back are a bit smaller than the right ones, maybe if Ronnie didn't joined the 06 O. to get surgery he could've looked better now.
Wow very cool man. It is amazing to me how each year while getting bigger and bigger his glutes seem to get more striated. O3' is definitely his most conditioned and most size, but still IMO 99' is the best blend of size, shape, and conditioning that the world will never see again.
Also on a side note, look closely at his waist from year to year. With the exception of 98' his waist did not really get out of control some of the guys do today. It maintained great symmetry with the rest of his body. It was just his distended gut which we all felt detracted from his physique a bit. Then again if you were stepping on stage @ almost 300lbs. your stomach might stick too.:gaysign:
