  1. Any true bodybuilding fans in this world MUST appreciate just how AMAZING Arnold's arms really were. Genetically blessed and driven by a superior work ethic he built probably the greatest arms ever! For me it's a toss up between Arnold & Sergio Oliva as owners of the most incredible arm development. If anyone has opinions on any of the videos below or in general regarding Arnold's arms comment below. More footage of Arnold's arms... More... More....
  2. The following article was originally published in the March, 1966 issue of Iron Man entitled "The Boys From Belleville". Phil Grippaldi may not be a physique title winner, but he certainly has a magnificent physique that is all solid muscle, and has some of the largest, if not the largest, muscular arms of any teenager in the world, with 20 inches, which he possessed at the age of 16. He amazed the audience and the officials when he came out to lift at the Teenage Nationals this year. Such size, muscularity and power is just too unbelievable in a teenager! His chest of 50" ta

  5. The Gigantic Arms of Bill Pettis By Joe Weider The greatest bodybuilders in the world pass through the portals of Weider’s Woodland Hills establishment. The lavish appointment of this modern installation is reflected in the great human products that complement it. Massive muscle in repose lends a scenic treat matched only by the magnificent Santa Susana Mountains facing the broad, glass front. Attempts at conservative tailoring fail as muscle spills over. Shirt sleeves are carefully split to accommodate burgeoning biceps. You gape in awe at the likes of Arnold, Waller, Gable
  6. How to Build Strong and Powerful Triceps By Charles A. Smith (1953) Edited By: Strength Oldschool There was a play written some years ago by the late George Bernard Shaw, and although you lifters likely won’t be the least bit interested in it, I think you will be in its title . . . “Arms and the Man,” because regardless of the fact that they might be beginning lifters, physique champions, or just plain ordinary members of the public, everyone associates a large, muscular and powerful pair of arms with a manly, forceful character. A pair of well-developed arms sets off
  7. Casey Viator - 1971 Training Routine - 3 Days a Week By Achilles Kallos Nineteen year old Casey Viator from New Iberia, La. is the youngest bodybuilder to have won the Mr. America title. He started training when he was fifteen, which, in my opinion, is the right time to start bodybuilding. Casey has been fortunate in many ways, having a good physical background, sound training advice and a superb genetic potential. At the same time, however, he is an exceptionally hard trainer, in spite of the fact that he works long hours at his job as a welder. T
  8. Casey Viator Talks Arms By Doris Barrilleaux Doris: How big were your arms when you began training? Casey: When I started training I had about a 17 1/2 inch arm. Doris: Along with the methods you use today, what were some of the methods that worked for you in your early years of arm training? Casey: I used to use a lot of heavy, heavy movements, barbell curls, heavy lying tricep extensions, heavy dipping and chinning. Everything was done pretty strong. I moved slowly so I've never had elbow or knee problems. I did this without thinking. Art
  9. My Favourite Routine for Building Massive Arms By Gene Mozee [Gene Mozee] In 1951, when I first began bodybuilding, I used to go to Muscle Beach in Santa Monica, California, every day during summer vacation and on weekends during the rest of the year. The superstars of that era – Steve Reeves, Armand Tanny, John Farbotnik, Marvin Eder, George Eiferman, Malcomb Brenner, Joe Sanceri, Clark Coffee, Ed Fury, Joe Gold and Zabo Koszewski, among others – were always there, and you could watch them train at the beach or at Vic Tanny’s famous gym, which was just a couple of blocks awa
  10. The Legendary Leroy Colbert Training Philosophy (1977) By Howard Alpert When the definitive history of bodybuilding is written, a significant section will be devoted to a man who 'rewrote' the rules of training and whose physical development still remains as a standard that other bodybuilders try to reach. In an era when a 16-inch arm was considered very good and an 18-inch one was something that trainees dreamed about, the fabulous Leroy Colbert smashed all barriers by developing a 21-inch muscular arm. Only a near-tragic accident (Motorcycle accident in 1955 ) prevented h
  11. 2009 Interview with Pat Neve Bench Press Legend and Champion Bodybuilder By Noelia Sanchez, Jeff Cabacungan and Chad Freeman Edited by: Strength Oldschool If you haven't read the 1980 Interview with Pat Neve, you may wish to read that first.

  12. The Two Hands Slow Curl By Charles A. Smith It wasn’t so many months ago when the weight lifting world was roused into a really fine fury. Charges and counter-charges flew thick and fast with bets, wagers, challenges and conditions laid on the line so heavily that the arguments were unheard above the steady thump of money bags. Friendships were broken and enemies made, and all because someone said that a certain famous bodybuilder couldn’t perform a certain number of repetitions in the two hands slow curl with a certain poundage. Long were the arguments and many the word
  13. John Grimek - Acquiring Shaplier Biceps From Strength & Health Magazine, Nov, 1957. ** Actual article pages are attached to the bottom of this article ** The arm, particularly the biceps muscle, is the best-known of all muscles and incites more interest and controversy than any other group of muscles. Both old and young are, for some inexplicable reason, fascinated by strong, muscular looking arms. The very young are always intrigued and will hound anyone with a fine pair of arms to "show me your muscle! ” Youngsters don’t realise that almost 700 muscles comprise the
  14. Mind blowing V-Taper from "The Myth", Sergio Oliva possessing huge arms, massive shoulders and wide flaring lats. Back in 1985, bodybuilder and writer, Jeff Everson wrote an article on how Sergio Oliva and Victor Richards Trained to Build their Physiques. To read that article click here.

  15. I came across this photo online showing Big Ronnie Coleman curling 143 kg (315 lbs) using a straight barbell. Is this photo real? It looks real. Was Ronnie strong? He sure was. The only thing about this photo that bothers me is the fact that writer Chris Sloan states it was a "STRICT" curl!! Ronnie Coleman was Gorilla strong but was he strong enough to perform a strict barbell curl with 143 kg (315 lbs)? By the way, in case anyone hasn't watched Ronnie's documentary entitled: "Ronnie Coleman - The King" (2018), check it out, it's great!
  16. Lee Priest - Victory Pose One of the few bodybuilders throughout history who can pull off this pose. Not many can...You need massive "complete" arm development for example, not just biceps / triceps, you also need forearms. The best ever at pulling off the "Victory Pose" was Sergio Oliva.

  17. Rare photo of Sergio "The Myth" Oliva from 1969 at Home Gym, Chicago. He looks utterly MASSIVE! Sergio won the Mr Olympia contest that year and we can see why. Sergio's physique from 1969 beats the hell out of today's Mr Olympia competitors by a mile!! Truly outstanding. Photo was clearly taken before Sergio's tricep incident which I believe happened after 1972, possibly '73 onwards. Anyway, soak this image up because its one of the best I've seen of Sergio. From head to toe, he was simply MASSIVE!!

  18. Whether this was strict style or "cheating" (using momentum) was involved I do not know. Chuck Loesch possessed some thick, strong, muscular arms, even cheat curling over 300 lbs requires incredible strength. Want more photos of Chuck? Click here and do a search!
