I heard from a guy who’s been a member of your gym for nearly thirty years. Can you believe it?
He says that he would train at your gym over any other even though they may have acres of high-tech chrome machines, pooles, sun rooms, jacuzzis and saunas! He said that Vince’s Gym is straight forward and contains only apparatus that is 100 percent useful to the bodybuilder.
I have gone off track. Sorry, Vince my question is about Larry Scott’s arm training. I would like you to clear up a point of contention since Larry trained at your gym when he won his big titles.
Here goes: When Larry Scott did preacher curls did he do 8 reps and then three “burns” at the top of the movement or did he also do “burns” in the arm-extended positions?
Larry Scott only used the preacher bench for his biceps training at my gym, and I believe even today he uses it exclusively.
He used to do eight reps with four or five “burns” (quick partial-reps) at the top, and when he couldn’t hold it any longer, he’d lower the weight and do four or five more “burns” at the bottom.
He never put a weight down until he had squeezed everything there was to get out of it. He drew blood with every set.
