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.

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.

My personal favourite is Reeves. I'm in awe at his V-Taper, his tiny waist, his "squared-off chest" & his huge arms, shoulders, quads & his diamond calves.

It's amazing to me that these two were competing at the same time because, to me, their physiques are totally different. They ate differently from one another & also trained differently from one another.

Reeves' physique is very athletic like compared to Park's hardcore body. Both are equally impressive & will be for all time, but personally, for me, it's Reeves.
