NABBA Athletes
« 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...

Pay attention on these 5 athletes from the videos above:


Karlo Sic (Germany)


Gary Lewer (Australia)


Brian Buchanan (Uk)


Charles Clairmonte (UK)


Joe De Angelis (U.S.A)

Now go compare these guys to the last 3-4 contest of ifbb professional league and tell me what are your conclusions... :-\

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.  :(

Fucking shame........they banned Nubret several times also.

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.
