Super Advanced Arm Supplement – Larry Scott (1960s)

Larry Scott, the winner of the first Mr. Olympia contest in 1965, was renowned for his arm development. The biceps and triceps training routine below was included as an exclusive insert with Scott’s booklet “How I Built My 20-inch Arms.” This was presented as something meant for highly advanced weight trainees, presumably those who have been training hard and making continual progress for a number of years. Larry Scott popularized the use of the “Preacher Bench,” also described here as a “Scott Curling Bench.” These can be found in many gyms today.
