Larry was famous for his “perfect loaded guns” arm development. He was responsible for making the Preacher Curl Bench one of the most popular pieces of bodybuilding equipment. The exercise is also known as the Scott Curl.

Larry also appeared in the movie Muscle Beach Party. The title of Larry’s seminar was “Larry’s Unique Technique Workshop”. In it he shared many of his secrets of bodybuilding as well as body conditioning. He was the first man to win the big 3 titles of Mr America, Mr Universe and Mr Olympia.

Learn first hand how Larry crafted exercise technique so well that he beat every other bodybuilder on the planet!

The following is a transcription of a letter received from Larry Scott in March 2007 after we sent Larry a copy of the DVD:

Wayne: what a treasure you have put together for me. I truly appreciate the DVD which is cramped pack full of pleasant memories. Many of which I had forgotten.  Thank you so very much for the effort and the gesture. This is one I will keep and show my grandkids.  Again thank you for the wonderful gift.

Your friend,
Larry Scott
