i would jsut like to point out that Larry Scott is one of my personal favorite Mr. O's of all time and the dude overcame a LOT to look like he did in his prime. including narrow shoulders and a smaller frame. there is a reason they call him "THE LEGEND"...the guy is quite simply THE MAN. arnold made the sport popular and he is awesome, but there are and were many greats that arent as well known. as for larry's arm workouts and all, i believe they are still very relevant and a lot of his ideas are still used to this day. not the least of which is - trisets for biceps and supersets for triceps generally work best.


Larry "The Legend" Scott, Mr O. 1965 & 1966

Every time I log on to this site I find some info on a pro I never heard of before.
Cheers for the info on Larry Scott T - was he natural his whole career? If so, that's an amazing achievement!! His arms and lower back are great features for a natural builder.

To reinforce that, I use routines of the 1950s with many of my clients, as I described here. The guy you're quoting claims people would get better results from more "modern" routines than those. To be honest I have not heard of people getting better results than that over a few months while still working full-time jobs and without drugs.

The basics work. The problem is that the basics are ****ing hard. Just doing a few compound exercises, and in every workout doing more weight, reps or sets than you did before - that's hard. I find it pretty daunting looking over my workout journal and realising that whatever I did last time I have to do more this time. I don't think I could do it without my training partner.

It would be much, much easier just to do bench, curl and crunches.

No, he was not natural. He did achieve some very good size as a natural. then within a fairly short time he really transformed his physique.

While I am really into the Classic natural aspects of BB, Scott and those of his era still have the type of physique I can appreciate. It was really in the early 80's when things really got out of control from my perspective.

BTB covered nearly everything I was wanting to say.
