Don’t get me wrong, Arnold Schwarzenegger had one of the best biceps of all time. However, there are certain physical specimens who looked like Greek gods from Rome. Usually, most body-builders aim for a 22-inch bicep. Then there are others; people who want to be the greatest. Biceps as huge as tree trunks, some of the incredible bodybuilders in the world dedicate their bodies to hone their craft and give an aesthetically visual experience for all fans.

Arnold Schwarzenegger doesn’t have the biggest arms

The seven-time Mr. Olympia had a 22-inch bicep at his peak and had a symmetrically balanced physique. He had a chest of 57″ and carried himself with 28.5″ thighs. However, there were some bodybuilders who went above the 22″ bicep. Apart from Schwarzenegger, there was a man who brought bodybuilding to the center of attention; the iconic Ronnie Coleman.

His Netflix documentary “Ronnie Coleman: The King”, showcases some of his best moments. He won the Mr. Olympia title a record eight times. A genetic freak, he had a 24″ bicep. That’s just not possible. When Schwarzenegger had a 22″ bicep, Coleman had 22-inch calves. Although his current shape is not great, during his peak, he was a modern-day marvel. His iconic body photos are hung up on the rafters of most gymnasiums.

The next famous man on the list is Lou Ferrigno. He had a bicep size of 22.5 inches while also having a 19-inch neck. Ferrigno had different records like bench pressing 560 pounds, deadlifting 850 pounds, and squatting 675 pounds. He landed ‘The Incredible Hulk’ role in the 70s. A true icon.
