Freaky development, shape and peak on upper arms, very thick forearms.
Why doesnt this guy get mentioned when they have these "best arms" articles and things?

Viator was very young there, what the hell did this guy do in his teens, to get so big so young? He won the America at 19, right? More to the point, what the hell was he on? Besides great genes.

i still can't get over bill's arms. i've never seen that pic before. i would definitely say that bill's arms are the best i've ever seen. unbelievable.

casey was a genetic freak and arthur jones (the inventer of nautilus) knew this only too well. he was trained exclusively by jones at this time casey became the poster boy for jones' very successful sale of high intensity bbing.

i say sale because jones rode high intensity bbing all the way to the bank. he published many books, directed the very successful nautilus empire and all on the back of high intensity bbing and casey viator as proof of it's effectiveness.

arthur used casey in so many ways that i think casey felt a little ripped off and may have been somewhat disillusioned with jones towards the end (he got diddly squat from the fortune that jones made).

ahh, the life of a pro bber.

Some guys like Pettis and Larry Samuels in NY were off the radar, mentioned only in 1-2 articles in second-tier mags with virtually no pics taken. Samuels was huge, used to see him training at Mid-City. Both guys with great arms without balance in the rest of the physique. Bill got no mention in Muscle that i know of. Bill's arms were impressive though nowhere near the size claimed. He had a mental handicap which might've been part of why he was never featured, along with the fact of the physique imbalance. Still around Venice Beach; had some pics taken recently at a Venice contest including one with Bill Grant; unlike Grant he doesn't look like he still trains.

Rare pics of Bill and Samuels. This pic of Bill accompanied a mid-1970s article on him i remember reading when it came out.

Do a search on Pettis on Ironage for more info.

makes sense and pettis' balance issues obviously accentuated the unbelievable development in his arms. with the rock hard mass that he displays here it wouldn't surprise me if those arms were as strong as they look.

i've never even heard of samuels before, never mind seen him. he seems to have longer muscle bellies in his arms than sergio had. Shocked the tri bellies are so long it almost looks like the fat hang that the obese get on the back of their arms.

thanks for the info and pics pump.

Samuels' tris are unbelievable.

Petis was mentally handicapped?

no diss on grant (his arms are fantastic), but it seems that his triceps lagged behind the biceps.

Grant's arms were good but completely unbalanced. His bis though, always helped in his case even now by paper-thin skin and good definition.

grant was to be reputed as one of the few bodybuilders who didn't have to diet to get into top shape. even today at age 60 he's always in good shape.

robbie and beckles had crazy peaks.

lance dreher had great bis. wtf happened to him?

there has always been much talk about leroy having the largest natural arms of all time and the first man to build muscular 20" arms. some might disagree on the natural part.
