These days he might not be as famous as Arnold Schwarzenegger, but Frank Zane is right up there in the pantheon of bodybuilding greats - and in a recent video the now 79-year-old shows he's still working out just as regularly as ever.

A three-time Mr Olympia, Zane understandably looks a little different now to his late 1970s peak, but proved on his Instagram that his knowledge and dedication to staying in shape remains as strong as ever.

A recent clip features Zane performing one of his preferred bicep exercises; a variation on the incline curl, performed facing down on the incline bench.

"This puts tension on your biceps right at the top, so you let the dumbbells hang down, then you curl up, stop at the top, and go down slow," he explains in the video, while performing the move.

He adds: "You want to develop a rhythm when you're doing them; rhythm is what counts."

Zane goes on to say that the exercise is a great one for achieving peak contraction of the bicep, and advises doing sets of 10 reps, commenting that after just six curls he is starting to feel the strain.

And his fans are clearly impressed - with people amazed he's still doing his thing in his eighth decade.
