Scott's a prime example of a pec/delt tie-in. Muscle groups flow together, not like today. Been told by some old time vet's, from Venice/Santa Monica, that he used to train triceps much more than biceps. Always around the dipping bar and also doing  handstand push-up, etc. When he started to train in North Hollywood (Vince's), that's when biceps were focused on. Outstanding delts on a narrow frame. Can look at the size of his head and tell he had less than normal shoulder bone width. Scott wrote once that his arm's got so big (20"..abouts) that they actually hurt just hanging from his sides. I surpose 99% of the guy's who come to this site wished they had that problem. Good Luck.

Larry was one of the first guys in BB with superstar sized arms-in the 1960s this was unusual.

Larry's fave muscle to train was triceps, as he said himself-but with Gironda there he was forced to train bis just as hard-i wouldn't say his genetics were particularly hard but he worked hard and smart, with the luxury of training methods that were/are ahead of their time. The bread n' butter of his triceps routine was always the pedestal, which is great. The preacher bench had already been invented but was popularized by Scott.

Tris were always as good as bis, which is why his arms were so complete. Schwarzenegger said he thought they were the best arms ever, as of the early 1970s.

Ya davie, Larry had huge forarms!! He had some unusual training methods too. IF youve ever tried to use a preacher bench like he did you would wonder how he developed his arms at all. Larry had a way of placing his arms on the pad so that his elbows touched and his forearms flaired out to the sides. Try it some time- talk about uncomfortable!!! He would do it that way with barbells and dumbells.
Larry also knew he couldnt curl big weights with weak forarms so he developed a low bench that sat about 12 inches of the floor that he would straddle and lay his arms over to do wrists curls.

One of the exercises in Arnold's Encyclopedia. Did Larry invent that? Anyway, the guy had some serious mass on his chest and arms. Some of, if not the biggest biceps I've ever seen.

Effective; if it hurts you're probably doing it wrong.

His exercises were highly effective, aren't uncomfortable at all from my experience doing those.

I've never seen those-he might've actually been doing wrist curls with the elbows close. DB curls as done in that pic work perfectly though.

i cant train forearms directly without them cramping up real hard.

larry had some of the best arms ever. basically he was a guy who 1. had extremely good arm genetics(very full bellies on bis, tris and forearms, low insertions), 2. was obsessed with arm training, and 3. ate lots of dbol.

you can train all you want and do any kind of neat little exercise or whatever novel little technique or whatever, but it wont matter at all unless you have numbers 1 and 3.

A little too pessimistic given that you don't have his knowledge. Easy to say he had the genetics but the fact is that superior training, intensity and nutrition brought him up from 157 lb.

lol come on now pumpster...
this stuff isnt rocket science...its not like he did some kind of 'secret exercise of the pros' that got his arms big...there are only so many ways to train your biceps. alos i dont train any less hard or smart than these guys. the difference is their glorious genetics and the fact that they use anabolic steroids. thats it.

he is always considered to have shitty genetics but that is far from true. he may not have been a big guy but look at his arms. completely full muscle bellies and low insertions on the bis, tris, and forearms. most people only have maybe one or 2 of those, two if their really lucky. i have small joints, long lanky arms, high bicep inserts, and unimpressive forearms. doesnt mean i train any 'less hard' than him or have 'less smarts' than him Roll Eyes
it just means he has superior genetics. and drugs.

That way of preacher curling was a gironda method, like many of girondas exercises it looked weird but apparently was very effective.

Based on what you've said, there's no reason to assume that you've realized your full potential the way he did; stop taking a loser's approach and ascribing it all to one thing. You remind me of the guys who claims it's all about drugs.
