Title: NABBA Athletes
Post by: Gatts on May 10, 2013, 03:27:03 AM
I was doing some research on nabba's contests and found out that during the 90's that federation have amazing competitors fighting for titles like the mr Universe. Nobody talks about those guys and most of them are really amazing bodybuilders (better than the gutted crop that ifbb is showing nowadays  :'()
Be free to post some videos/photos of nabba competitors (Wes and Optimus do your job lol)

Wow!  :o
That dude looks fucking immaculate. He's almost comparable to Kevin. If he had more quads. Dudes rear bicep is insane. That upper back through his arms flows with immaculate aesthetics. Second video at like 1:08...

what do you think about this guy? He is a brazilian prospect, won Junior Mr. Universe 2011 and plenty of local/nationals shows.

many acuse him of being filth though.

His chest is terrible, not sure if it's the insertion or lack of mass but man it looks bad compared to how developed the delts and arms are. Wide-ish waist.

Back in the day,there were no Professional contests except the NABBA Universe.......they had an amatuer Universe and a professional Mr. Universe.

Legendary guys like the list below all coveted that title as it was very prestigous back then.

Boyer Coe
Chris Dickerson
Jeff King
Matt Dufresne
Chet Yorton
Arnold Schwarzenegger
Dennis Tinnerino
Johnny Citrone
Frank Richards
Bertil Fox
Brian Buchannan
Jim Haislop
Paul Grant
Bill Pearl

The list of legends copuld go on forever.

No NPC back then,just AAU and IFBB so after a guy won the AAU Mr. America and it`s lesser titles,he would fly to London to try his hand at the NABBA Universe.

The IFBB would ban some guys that competed in it,but they would let others.  compete.............politics.  :(

I agree brother.......politics at it`s very worst.

They were also afraid Pearl would beat Arnold and if memory serves me,I believe Arnold skipped that year.......I could be wrong though...........getting absent minded in my old age.

Hey wes ! I think you already know
this is a picture of Serge in 1975 4 weeks from stage, when Joe saw him in this shape he banned Serge to  compete because he was better than Arnold.
Serge became very discouraged that stopped training and eating right for 2 weeks, But then Joe called back him to compete.

Look at his traps, shoulders, waist...

Lol yea true my coach used to hang with serge at that period of time,he told me that weider baned nubret for doing a porno was he he was actualy the right hand of weider ,flex magasine efigie etc.... But the truth is that they didnt want arnold the muscle and fitness efigie and white boy (racisme was constent in 70') to loose to many money in game.nubret was not a fooo he made a big party invited alll the old school black bodybuilders fot them high on alcohool and drugs and announce t them that he was at his all time best shape but weiders brother baned him from competiting cuz of racism lolll they all get mad and put weider under pressure no black will ever come bzck on stage til nubret got back .pressure worked 2 weeks later they allowed him.ended up second cuz of weight loss they bzckstage told him next year serge we can make you mr olympia if u do what we want you to do.... Next year he went back on europa and created his own federztion.serge was not a dickk sucker may he rip

Hey I was thinking lets be honest women's  bodybuilding in the npc and ifbb is gone ....period.
These women now have 2 choices shrink down for figure or physique or they can go to other federations like nabba.
Well I am competitive and year after year you See less and less bodybuilders at the npc shows which means no new talent coming up in the near future but mens physique have 6-8 classes per show. So is  men's bodybuilding dieing out like women's bodybuilding did .... I hope not
Why want something so easily obtainable? Push yourself and shoot for something beautiful and almost unobtainable

The IFBB would ban some guys that competed in it,but they would let others.  compete.............politics.  :(

*cough*Sergio banned from '71 *cough* Fucking Joe *cough*  ::)
Yup,I think Joe was a bit worried that "The Myth" would beat Arnie! 

Fucking shame........they banned Nubret several times also.
Hey wes ! I think you already know
this is a picture of Serge in 1975 4 weeks from stage, when Joe saw him in this shape he banned Serge to  compete because he was better than Arnold.
Serge became very discouraged that stopped training and eating right for 2 weeks, But then Joe called back him to compete.

Look at his traps, shoulders, waist...

I was doing some research on nabba's contests and found out that during the 90's that federation have amazing competitors fighting for titles like the mr Universe. Nobody talks about those guys and most of them are really amazing bodybuilders (better than the gutted crop that ifbb is showing nowadays  :'()
Be free to post some videos/photos of nabba competitors (Wes and Optimus do your job lol)
