Bill Pettis

Posted on Friday, December 17th, 2021 by John Wood
Another look at Bill Pettis and his 23-1/4-inch arms. Bill actually competed in a few bodybuilding contests in the early 70’s but typically finished toward the bottom of the pack — he certainly had the arms covered, but not much else. Note that Bill is also sporting a nifty Vince’s Gym tank top.

Bill Pettis: 23-1/4-inch Arms!

Posted on Wednesday, September 17th, 2014 by John Wood

23-1/4-inch Arms!… I don’t know if his arms stretched the tape measure quite that far, but Bill Pettis of Harrisburg, Pennsylvania, DID have a pretty impressive set of guns. As far as training, Bill liked to do 100 sets of arm work… and they would stay pumped for days afterwards.

Bill Pettis: 23-1/4-inch Arms!

23-1/4-inch Arms!... I don’t know about that one, but Bill Pettis DID have some pretty impressive guns. He even wrote a course on how he built them which is one of the few training courses that I have not seen. Bill had a brother named Bob who was also impressive.
