Having the World’s largest biceps is not as cool as it sounds


guinness record for largest arms

If you grew up in the 1980s and were a professional wrestling fan, you probably dreamed of one day having 24″ Pythons like Hulk Hogan. Having the largest arms in the world would help you battle all of those bad guys that you would encounter in your life.

Right now, having the largest arms in the world doesn’t seem that cool,

The picture above is of Mostafa Ismail who has the Guinness Book of Records for the largest arms in the world that were measured for left arm flexed at 64.77 cm (25.5 in) and non-flexed 62.23 cm (24.5 in) and for right arm flexed at 63.5 cm (25 in) and non-flexed 60.96 cm (24 in). The measurements were taken in Franklin, Massachusetts, USA which is where Mostafa now resides.

What do you do with arms like that? At what point did Ismail start to notice that his biceps no longer looked cool or sexy but just freaky? Has this guy ever heard of shoulder workouts?
