Park in picture 3 is IMO as close to a perfect body as you will see (id love to be anywhere close to that, but at 36 probably left it a bit late lol ). Not too big or too lean to be unhealthy and solid, thick and importantly STRONG looking. Reeves has beautiful symmertry, but just doesnt look as 'strong' as Park. I think Chuck Sipes was in FANTASTIC shape too though from a similar era..



(id love to look something like him too )...

Reg for mass and thickness, Steve for semitry, small waste and vacume.
Other than that if you didn't know better, you'd think they were brothers or even same guy at diffrent stages.

Park was brutally strong AND looked great. He didn't piss around with fluff and just went at it. Reeves is a legend, but Park gets my nod.

The top two pics are from his competitive days. Reeves had a very short career as a competitive bodybuilder, due to the films. And, the directors those days wanted him to cut his weight for the movies. In fact, in one of his later movies, "The Giant of the Marathon", they got Reeves down to just under 190 lbs to seem a bit more realistic for the epic marathon run.

I always thought that Reeves, from Mr World or Mr Universe shows looked much better, stronger and bigger as compared to the movies (possibly including Hercules movies).

Secondly, Parks at his best was 6' 1.5" around 220 lbs. Reeves was 6'1" around 215 lbs, with a smaller bone structure. Its amazing how both had pretty close measurements at their peaks and yet looked so dramatically different.

Parks was strong as a horse. But Reeves was no sissy either. A 400lbs deadlift, while holding the plates at the end of the barbell is one hell of a strength feat. Here's some numbers at subsequent attempts at this lift ...

Nice to see the mighty Chuck Sipes making an appearance. Huge forearms.

Both fantastic physiques, but that third photo of Park is something else.

I'd give Park the edge.
