Dorian Yates: Muscle Icon

There is an interview over at Bodybuilding.com between David Robson and legendary photographer Kevin Horton, who is now over at BSN. Horton was the guy who took the extraordinary photos of Dorian Yates for Flex Magazine back in 1993, as Dorian was preparing for his second Olympia win (clip below).



I remember being absolutely blown away by those shots. At the time Dorian looked like no other bodybuilder around, huge and incredibly muscled.








I don't know why finding the entire article is so difficult. I am not even quite sure if all of the shots above come from the '93 shoot or a later one. All I know is that Yates incited my passion for bodybuilding, and started the 'never too big' attitude of the sport today. Discuss!

Pure perfection! He should have his own statue.

Yates and also Eddie Robinson were two of the stunningly sized bodybuilders who were long favorites of mine. I've seen vids of Yates today training younger BBers and he's still a huge guy - not BB huge, but just from pure genetics.

Dorian Yates IS ugly, but that's part of his appeal. That much thick hard muscle on a plain man is beyond sexy. Fantastic calves and a beefy ass that wouldn't quit.

Yates is not ugly - he is living, orgasmic proof you can never be 2big. The 1993 olympia movie is wonderful. What a body, what definition along with size and striations. The last lat spread from the front was mind blowing.

I was TOTALLY the same mate, it took me a long time to appreciate Dorian because he's not your classic pretty-boy, but now I just can't get enough. He's a full-bodied man's man of a muscleman! Love him and yes given the chance I'd bang that huge beefy ass of his into next week and beyond. What an amazing lad he is.

Dorian is no pretty boy! He's so huge and so damn muscular that he brings out the sadist in most of us!
