I like both of these guys, but I tend to give the nod to Park. He has a bit more mass, and overall ruggedness to his frame.

Reeves is perfect in form, and graceful. The man was not weak, but he lacks a certain rawness to his physique, that to my eye gives the nod to Park.

Both men played Hercules in the movies.

Park is a broadsword. Reeves a rapier.

The top 2 pictures of Reeves are incredibly impressive. But I don't see as many pics of him looking that thick. That top pic his quads and calves are huge.

When all is said and done, I would want to look like the second picture of Park.

When I think of Park and Reeves, I think of Arnold, and Zane.

When you see pics of young Arnold next to Park, they look very similer in how their bodys are shaped. Pictures of Reeves and Zane are similer, as well.

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.

Alas, those days are over. I posted this thread on Facebook and my sole comment was..."natural bodybuilders suck."

Anyone that calls a dedicated trainer, natural or not, foolish shouldn't be taking AAS.
