A big shoutout to the gym photographers back then, like Art Zeller, Gene Mozee, and John Balik. Without them, we wouldn’t have those legendary shots at the original Gold’s Gym of Arnold, Franco, et al.…
Back to Arnold. Yes, he had great genetics for sure—check out the freakin’ limbs on The Oak—but it was his training that took his potential to legendary status…

For more on size-building stretch exercises and how to integrate them with the biomechanically ideal move for each muscle to accelerate hypertrophy, see Old Man, Young Muscle.
Till next time, train hard—and smart—for BIG results.
