Guys..... I'm probably a bigger McGrath fan than any here, he has imo the best shape of any pro..... but you don't win bodybuilding contests with an under developed back, and when your hams/glutes are as smooth as a baby's bottom.

McGrath has the better shape..... but Frankhouser wins, look when they turn to the back, it's not even close.

huh? both have weak backs, mcgrath seems to be posing his better so it appears wider along again with better shape. legs are comparable but eric takes them, but imo frank dominates in the upper body and has better shape. mcgrath wins

McGrath takes it in this one, I just can't stand looking at Eric's physique, it is so out of balance and asymmetrical. When McGrath fills out he will be great. :xyxthumbs:

mcgrath isn't as hard as eric in the rear in the lower body, but that's it. i'm sorry eric is not harder in the upper body and his back is not better. you could maybe make a case in the BDB but the rear lat spread in the upper body is clearly frank's.

I agree, hence why I gave Frank the edge on the back lat spread. But, there was a reason he placed so low in that show, because he was soft as hell in the legs. Look at the side chest, Erik's legs are cut up, McGrath's are smooth.

In bodybuilding, if the competitors are close, the better conditioned one should always win. They're close in the upper body, lower body isn't even close.

Erik wins.

eriks pictures arent too good either, his MM and rear lat spread look as if they were taken before he hit the pose completely, but his rear lat spread sucks anyways, their FDB are very similar except frank has nice biceps, and eriks arent so good.

IS is right erik takes it(i voted for frank :keke:) his conditioning is great, frank is smooth all around

his last name is FANKHOUSER :keke: gees guys.

I gave it to fankhouser, they are close, but conditioning tipped him over the top.

Frankhouset takes it. Although McGrath has bigger bis, forearms and chest, his conditioning is not good enough. Frankhouser is nearly equal in triceps and back, but wins in leg size.

McGrath hands down. He has better lines and every bodypart on him is more muscular and defined than Fankhouser besides his calves. Fankhouser's physique is way out proportion and everything besides his calves sucks.
