Dumbbell Scott Curl

Scott Curl
Per Bernal

The inaugural winner of the Mr. Olympia in 1965, Larry “Legend” Scott packed some serious arm size on his 5’7″ frame. He cited the Scott curl—a variation on the preacher curl—as the primary reason behind his 20-inch pythons.


  1. Dumbbell Scott Curl
    With a dumbbell in one hand, set up on a preacher bench so the pad is at the bottom of your pecs. Extend your arm all the way down.
  2. Scott Curl
    Flex the forearms and biceps, and curl the weight up. Extend back down.
