Sergio Oliva Trains Shoulders

Known as ‘The Myth’ for his quite frankly cartoon like proportions, Sergio Oliva has long occupied a hallowed place in Bodybuilding’s pantheon of greats. Mr. Olympia in 1967, 1968 and 1969, Oliva inspired a generation of gym goers and iron addicts. Somewhat frustratingly, footage of the man training is relatively hard to come by, hence my excitement regarding the below video.

Uploaded by, the video shows Sergio running through a shoulder workout. Working with an impressive rhythm, Sergio’s low rep, heavy weight training should provide the requisite motivation for your next workout.

As always…Happy Lifting!
