Completely true. Mine are 15.5" cold but flexed. I could possibly get 16 if I did a few pump sets for both bis and tris, but my bodyfat is still over 15% (est.). Back in high school when I was MUCH heavier they got up to around 18", but I actually have more muscle mass now.

My legs were also 27"+ back then. I was a big dude in high school.

Why feel stupid? Just because Arthur Jones claims a particular measurement ffor Arnold doesn't make it true, any more than a claim from Weider or indeed Arnold. Arthur Jones' agenda was to debunk everything about modern bodybuilding in order to further his status as a visionary.

I've seen all sorts of measurements claimed for Arnold's arms, right from under 20" to a frankly incredible 23". There may be a couple of crucial variables: (a) off-season or dieted and (b) who was doing the measuring.

With regard to (b), it's not easy to get a consistent measurement. A slight change in the angle of the tape or the exact portion measured can make quite a difference.

Out of interest, these were my arms a few years ago. they were both hovering around 18" from memory, and I'm a dinky 5'7".
