Larry Scott "The Legend" was the winner of the very first 2 Mr Olympia titles. Sporting 20-inch biceps well stacked between 2 colossal deltoids with a massive beer-barrel chest. Scott became very popular, very quickly and he made an enormous contribution to starting off the fledgling sport of bodybuilding to the worldwide phenomenon it is today.
Larry retired after his 1966 Mr Olympia title and continued to popularise the new sport of bodybuilding by travelling around the globe, over his lifetime Larry amassed an impressive catalogue containing countless interviews, magazine articles and books he had published.
As Larry himself describes, he's a natural hard-gainer and started weight training because he was a 5'9" weakling with narrow shoulders and bad genetics. His favourite mass building routine consists of 1 major exercise for a muscle group with a lot of volume (6 X 8 reps).
Larry was a "first generation" steroid-user back in the 60's, he only moved to training a split routine later on towards the end of his career when he first started using steroids. Larry Scott built his foundation of muscle mass naturally, same as Arnold Schwarzenegger, training only 3 times a week using full-body routines.
The Larry Scott workout listed below is an intermediate level and not a beginner level because of the volume used. This workout should always be trained on alternate days, getting a full day recovery before the next training session is vitally important.
Larry wrote at length about the importance of sleeping 8-9 hours to help speed up recovery. He also said that doing any additional strenuous cardio should be avoided on your rest day. Larry explains it just puts unnecessary drain on your body's recuperative powers, he explains that every resource you got needs to be optimized into muscle growth.
