Introduction: Dorian Yates had a troubles youth as a kid, however all that changed when he picked up bodybuilding during the early 1980’s. He quickly rose up thru the ranks and was known for his symmetry, muscular size, granite hard conditioning and leanness. The 1990’s was known as the Yates Era because Dorian Yates was six times Mr. Olympia and he also set a new standard for bodybuilding. To me this man (Dorian Yates) was the greatest bodybuilder ever due to his no bullshit attitude, hard working attitude and going against the grain of conventional bodybuilding.
Why?: One may ask “Why is Dorian Yates the best?” the answer is quite simple really, its because of his no bullshit attitude towards life and bodybuilding in general. The man didn’t half ass his diet or training, he was consistent, set goals and achieved them. Every up and coming bodybuilder should take a lesson from Dorian Yates in terms of life, bodybuilding and much more!
