  1. Before there was Mr T. in "The A-Team", there was Sergio Oliva. The Myth was known to be flamboyant and was probably the best dressed bodybuilder of all time.

  2. 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....
  3. 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
  4. Forget Triceps at this point in time and instead keep the focus of this topic on Biceps training comparing two exercises only: The Strict Curl vs The Cheat Curl. Which one is more effective, in your opinion, to build larger muscles of the upper arm? If a lifter specifically focused ONLY on "Cheat Curls" using either an Ez-Bar or straight bar, it doesn't matter, would they lack arm development by not using ultra strict form? Heavy cheat curls are considered "TABOO" in today's times as wannabe experts would have you believe they're a waste of time, will lead to injuries and offer no benefit

  6. 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
  7. 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
  8. 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
  9. 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
  10. Big Lou Ferrigno around 1983, probably training for his Hercules movie role.

  11. 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!
