Ok, I don't have exact measurements of course, but they must be around that size. From 1980 Mr Olympia. Before growth hormona and insulina, a conditioned, dry 17 inch arm was a big deal.

Agreed - remember Arnolds were only just over 19" in the off season during his peak in the early '70's. Measured on public once only.

Haha - oh brother you have got to be kidding - if Arnold only had 19 inch arms at 6'2 they'd have looked like toothpicks. Hell, my arms are 19in and look positively puny next to Arnold's, offseason or otherwise.

If you believe that you'll believe anything. Stories like that came out to make the little hard-gaining kids feel better about their own puny measurements and to buy more protein powder just to keep them in the game.

lot of people call zane a swimmer, while he wasnt a mass monster in his day, he wasnt exactly tiny

taller than bannout, roughly same weight, about the same size as robby, I dont hear anyone calling them small

and carried perfectly developed muscles with perfect proportions, and symmetry, in his era, he was the best built man around.

and 1980 is the worst zane ever looked on a olympia stage, shouldnt have competed at all due to injury, but decided to at last minute

if he hadnt had the injury, the fix wouldve still been on for arnie, but zane wouldve been the deserving winner
