More than 30 years after they were published, pictures of Arnold Schwarzenegger’s infamous bicep peaks continue to motivate gym-goers. You can walk into just about any gym in the country and see people performing Arnold’s signature bicep move – the Dumbbell Concentration Curl – as they envision their biceps growing taller and taller with every repetition.
