If you’re looking to add some new workouts to your regimen, who better to turn to than winners of the prestigious Mr. Olympia competition? From Larry Scott to Brandon Curry, every man who has hoisted the Sandow overhead in victory provides inspiration to bodybuilders around the world, so it only makes sense to look to their workouts for guidance. That said, some of them could use some changes to suit the average gym goer.
