    Education
    Zane received a B.S. (Bachelor of Science degree) in Education from Wilkes University in Wilkes Barre, Pennsylvania in 1964. Later he earned a B.A. (Bachelor of Arts degree) in psychology from Cal State LA in 1977. Finally, he was awarded a Master's degree in Experimental Psychology from Cal State SB, California in 1990.


    Bodybuilding career
    Zane is a three-time Mr. Olympia (1977 to 1979). His reign represented a shift of emphasis from mass to aesthetics. Zane's proportionate physique featured the thinnest waistline of all the Mr. Olympias with his wide shoulders making for a distinctive V-taper. He stood at 5'9" and had a competition weight of 180-190 pounds. Zane is one of only three people who have beaten Arnold Schwarzenegger in a bodybuilding contest and one of the very few Mr. Olympias under 200 pounds. He has written many books about bodybuilding. He received the Arnold Schwarzenegger lifetime achievement award at the 2003 Arnold Classic for his dedication and long-time support of the sport.

    He was given the nickname "The Chemist" due to his Bachelor of Science degree and, as he puts it: "Back in the day I took a lot of supplements and tons of amino acids. Still do. But back then it was pretty unusual. That's how I got the nickname The Chemist."

    In the 1980s, Frank owned and ran a gym in Palm Springs, Calif. He was focusing on personal training. He now lives in San Diego with his wife Christine.

    In 2005, Frank Zane played the IFBB Announcer and worked as the consulting producer in the movie "See Arnold Run." As of 2006, Zane currently runs his own website, appears at seminars and book signings, and offers personal weightlifting sessions with his program called "The Zane Experience" in San Diego.

    Thumbs up No argument here

    Zane

    A pure inspiration and a physique that typifies the 'ideals' of old school BB. Its hard to reconcile the fact that this guy is even the same species as Kovacs Palumbo et al.

    I wouldnt say worst, i would say different, he looks like he just stepped of the 300 stage.

    I prefer the Mr O's and competitors who had a lot more mass personally, but i can appreciate Zane's physique,i think Mentzer had him beat in 79, but thats history.

    This thread reminds me a lot of the countless Steve Reeves is superior to todays pros threads.
    Recip's Fierce Crew!!!!

    If i cant be the best i can be, i dont want to be.

    Who we are is but a stepping stone to what we can become.

    IM THE NEGGERNAUT BITCH!!

    DONT PM ME ABOUT WHERE TO GET GEAR OR ANCILLARIES, I DONT KNOW YOU AND I WILL FORWARD YOUR PM TO A MOD!

    I am immortal
    I have inside me blood of kings
    I have no rival
    No man can be my equal

    I definetly say worst,off course you can't compare competitors of different eras but what he brought was pretty "average" IMO...
    You can compare him to Oliva,Arnold,Columbo,Bannout & an early Haney though and everyone of those guys had a superior built...

    Zane is one of my all time favourites.

    His physique was aesthetic to look at and that vacuum pose was an instant classic, everytime i think of vacuum i think of Zane.

    His physique is evervescent.

    Thumbs up Vote for Frank!

    Zane ROCKS! At his age with his injures to still be in good shape is amazing. Not only is he still in Mags we should all hope to age as well. Arnold is still my fav, but Zane will also be there with the greats of BB.
    Some people are like Slinkies - not really good for anything, but you still can't help but smile when you see them tumble down the stairs.

    I saw from a post somewhere that Zane did not go any higher than 250lbs on his squats.
    Is that true?

    I like Frank Zane's physique a lot, but I am starting to think that the majority of the people on this board do not agree. Too many people value mass at all costss.

    The best part of Zane's physique would have to be his incredible waistline and symmetry.

    Frank Zane cant really be compared to other pros. He was good at his own thing (aesthetics, rediculous vacuum pose), but i would choose to look like hundreds of bodybuilders besides him. This topic has been beaten to death, but his legs are simply small. If the OP is correct about the measurements, my legs are the same size as his, and theres no way I would step onstage with legs that small. I couldnt call him the best in the world (Mr O) at any time with such an underdeveloped lower body.

    I prefer the Mr O's and competitors who had a lot more mass personally, but i can appreciate Zane's physique,i think Mentzer had him beat in 79, but thats history.

    This thread reminds me a lot of the countless Steve Reeves is superior to todays pros threads.
    Yep you hit the nail on the head. Worst physique? Nah. Smallest and most ectomorphic...yep. He's an amazing bb'er, just in a different way than the mass monsters of today. These days...no matter how "pretty" and aesthetic someones physique is...they have to have a lot of mass to win the O. ****, we consider guys like dex to be the smaller aesthetic guys but even guys like that are still HUGE!
    Your achievements in life mean NOTHING without aesthetics

    Is that true?
    I bought the new Flex magazine simply because he was on the cover and it has samples of his workouts/weights in there from his Olympia days. I do have to say that a lot of the weights were very light (100 lb. hack squats, etc.) though he did do 70 lb front raises. It kind of makes me wonder how he built that physique with those types of weights.

    LOL, no bodybuilder is perfectly symmetric. Of course his posing was geared around hiding that. Arnold admits to doing the same thing. Every good bodybuilder who wants to place well will pose in the most appealing manner for their physique. I would argue that out of all of the olympians he is the most symmetric and balanced.
    Two years he walks the earth, no phone no pool, no pets, no cigarettes.
    Ultimate Freedom. An Extremist. An aesthetic voyager who?s home is The Road. So now after two rambling years comes a final and greatest adventure: the climactic battle to kill the false being within, victoriously concludes a spiritual revolution. No longer to be poisoned by civilization he flees and walks alone upon the land to become Lost In The Wild.

    zane used to be my favorite bodybuilder.

    he did not have the insane ammounts of mass as usual mr. O's have had. he had an awesome admirable physique and he could display it so well... had a nearly flawless structure amazing...

    zane was not big enough to win the O's he got handed IMO granted that the O is about being a huge freak. he was something special though and if he were training today with all the stuff the pros have now... just imagine his development on that structure maybe he would have won O's anyway.
    I wish it lasted, forever.

    Zane had a great look and a big part of his presentation was his posing routine. If you have never seen it, do yourself a favor and check them out on YouTube. After seeing it, any people that want to downplay his championships should have a different opinion.

    He also has said it himself - posing has become almost an after thought or a forgotten part of a bodybuilder's entire routine. Most - if not all - of the guys from that era will tell you the same thing.
