If you want to know the record holder for the biggest arms in the world, then you're in the right place. Gregg Valentino is reported to have the largest biceps, measuring 28 inches or 71.12 cm. He is one of the most controversial yet popular bodybuilers. his arms are so large that they are larger than some people's waist. Gregg Valentino has been body building since the age of 14. He is only 5' 6" tall, but weighs about 250 pounds, has a 58 inch chest, can bicep curl 300 pounds and can bench press 550 pounds. His fame skyrocketed when he was featured in The Man Whose Arms Exploded, a TLC documentary highlighting the use and abuse of steroids.
In the documentary he recalls his misuse of steroids, namely not taking precautions necessary to prevent infection. Consequently he eventually came down with a very serious infection of his right biceps. After failed attempts to drain the hematoma himself, using the same needles he used to inject his steroids, and "filling two glasses with blood and pus" he sought emergency medical treatment. Ultimately his arm was saved, at the cost of a significant reduction in the size and shape of the biceps.
Jay Cutler is reporter to have the largest arms without the use of injections to the arms. His arms measure 22.5 inches (57 cm), he won the IFBB Mr. Olympia 2006-07, 2009-10.

Arnold Schwarzenegger at his bodybuilding peak his biceps was 22". Ronnie Coleman had also 22 inch guns.

Did you know that the Waist-hip ratio or Waist-to-hip ratio (WHR) is the ratio of the circumference of the waist to that of the hips. The WHR has been used as an indicator or measure of the health of a person, and the risk of developing serious health conditions. Research shows that people with "apple-shaped" bodies (with more weight around the waist) face more health risks than those with "pear-shaped" bodies who carry more weight around the hips. The waist-hip ratio in women is often considered a key feature in physical attractiveness.
