WATCH: Jean-Pierre Fux reviews the 1996 German Grand Prix.

Jean-Pierre Fux was one of the biggest bodybuilders on the competition stage between 1996 and 2003.

With the big break due to the horrible coronavirus pandemic, a number of top bodybuilders are publishing footage from the past and expressing their opinion on past events.

Jean-Pierre was a consistent top 10 finisher in the majority of competitions throughout his career.

In a recent post by Jean-Pierre, he looks back at the 1996 German Grand Prix.

Dorian Yates went on to win the show but it seems Jean-Pierre had some other thoughts.




Jean-Pierre believes the win could have easily went to second place finisher Nasser El Sonbaty.

A detailed description of Dorian and Nasser is given by Jean-Pierre in his post.

Jean-Pierre Fux placed eighth.

Do you agree with him?

Grand Prix of Germany 1996

Nasser vs Dorian. This is a tough one. Dorian was not the Dorian of 93 & 95 anymore and a bit downsized and Nasser at his peak. Here is how I saw it.

1)Front double biceps (not even close 1-0 Nasser)

2)Front Lats (can go either way , Nasser clearly overpowers Dorian but Dorians Front lat pose is pretty hard to beat so it’s a wash)

3) Side chest pose (Nasser dominating 2-0)

4)Rear double biceps pose (Dorian is the clear winner 2-1)

5)Rear lat pose (Dorian killing Nasser 2-2)

6)Side triceps pose (again Nasser much bigger against another iconic Dorian pose so let’s call it even again)

7)Front abs and thighs (argument can be made for both, Nassers legs are better but Dorian is pretty smart how he turns to the side rather quickly so you decide ?)

Tell me what you think about this iconic battle in Germany. My take is considering the symmetry round which I have Nasser winning an upset of the current Mr O would have been ok.
