All show vs. All go

I figured many that frequent this board would appreciate this pic. The title says it all, all show versus all go. It is old school strong man versus traditional body building. Both are legit goals and both have legit methods of training, but for me, I see the difference in physique and know immediately why I train the way I train.

Re: All show vs. All go

Well, I think the distinction has more to do with the amounts of steroids one of those people are taking. But I hear what you are saying...

+1 for that. Arnold wasn't totally for show, he did manage to move some pretty sick weight.However, I get your distinction.
In the same vein of show vs go, I sometimes pick up a muscle and fitness just to skim through on my trip home and occasionally they have an article on training the police or special forces. These articles are usually pretty good and talk a lot about overall fitness and conditioning.
Unfortunately, immediately after they usually have an article about blasting your biceps. I wonder if they ever see the irony in that. Wouldn't more people want to train how the military/emergency response providers train than how some juiced up bodybuilder trains?

I also give Eugene Sandow(I'm pretty sure that's him, but correct me if I'm wrong) a +1 for that handlebar mustache.

They probably would, but they can't see past the nice big subscription fees hehe.

I don't know if I agree. With just that fig leaf Eugene might show a little more than I care to see...

Adam,

I have several members transitioning from Body Building to CrossFit. I cannot express how dysfunctional their bodies are. The most noticeable of course being disproportionate biceps/triceps; making it impossible to straighten their arms during the overhead press or to come to full extension on pull-ups.

I think that has less to do with body building and more to do with them training with a short range of motion.

This could be true. However, it appears to me to be the result of over developed biceps...too much curling without much thought about balancing out the posterior chain.
