Generation Iron LaRon Landry Workout

Truly destroy your arms before you break for the Superbowl.

LaRon Landry is truly a beast of a man. The safety for the Indianapolis Colts is a force to be reckoned with on the field. Though they came up short in the AFC Championships, Landry and the Colts gave strong showing even in defeat. So what the hell does that have to do with bodybuilding?

Well, Landry seems to be a man blessed with the kind of genetics that could have made him a championship level bodybuilder. The guy has massive arms cultivated through years of arduous training to make him one of the most talented professional football players out there. Though he may not match up with some of the pros at the top of the bodybuilding world, Landry has the size that could make even a great amateur seem tiny in comparison.

Coming in at six feet tall and 220 lbs, the safety surely has the potential to grow even larger than he already is. You never know, maybe one day after his professional football career is in his rear view mirror, Landry could find himself bulking up for a pro show in the future. Until then we can take a look at the arm routine that has made the Colt superstar a force to be reckoned with on the field. And hey, this weekend is the Superbowl and we’re getting pumped about it. So let’s breakdown LaRon’s official workout:
