    A true bodybuilding icon! I have been following him since I was a teenager and he was the reason I started my fitness journey. His workout videos and some movie scenes were really inspiring to me. I gave my best and trained hard for years, but I was hardly getting any muscle, only to find out that my diet was nowhere near as it should've been. I have always eaten 'just enough' thinking it would be sufficient. My first real diet plan taught me the lesson. I remember getting it from Nextlevel Diet (it's my guess not sure 100% percent), but somehow it helped me gain a few pounds in my first month of using it. Surely it wasn't all pure muscle, but I was happier than ever. Thanks Arnold for everything you did for bodybuilding!!!

      Arnold made some great movies. My fave ones are Predator, Twins, Total Recall, and the Running Man. It must be tough to be a strongman. Tom Stoltman of Scotland is the present World's Strongest Man.

    I think people have always underestimated how smart Arnold is and he took advantage of it. He was not just a body builder or actor he had a great mind and insight.

  • Theo N de Bray
    Theo N de Bray 7 months ago +114

    Interesting. He talks about shocking the muscles, and then doing step downs (or pyramids, whatever you want to call it). It WORKS, even humble me! Another useful technique is to build in 21s, splitting the movements into 3 parts,. and working the muscles accordingly. Thanks Arnie, you've been a real help to me.

    • Peter Lonjers
      Peter Lonjers Month ago

      @Affeltrucken Yea all you need is progressive overload. But there is a grain of truth in what he is talking about. Most lifters do not lift close enough to muscle failure on each set. The current science says you should be getting to 1 or 3 reps away from failure on every set. Arnold is wrong that you need to vary your rep counts or change exercises. But you do need to "shock" your muscles by pushing them close to failure over and over.

    • Theo N de Bray
      Theo N de Bray 2 months ago

      @Affeltrucken Good points. As my main goal is good health, fitness, enjoyment, and relaxation (mental), I stick to a regular but complicated routine, and RECORD it, the only way you can measure your progress (or not!). Incidentally, a 'bad' week is a good motivator for making you try harder next week. I've had to stop for a while due to cancer & chemotherapy (cancer runs in my family), but keeping fit has enabled me to cope with it physically & mentally, and my recovery rate has impressed the Docs. I can't wait to get back to my routine, even though I will have to start all over again.

    • Affeltrucken
      Affeltrucken 2 months ago +1

      @Theo N de Bray It really does all come down to hard work, I agree with you on that, but shocking muscles in training has been debunked numerous times. The way to make your muscles are progressive overload, not muscle confusion. They share the same idea, but the execution is basically the opposite. In PO you try to beat all your previous sets in terms of reps, and progressively add more weight when you've reached a certain amount of reps. This is like Arnold says, making the muscle grow by putting a "new" load on it. While trying to shock the muscles, it's very hard to achieve muscle confusion. The varying exercises makes it hard to progressively overload them in a linear fashion. It's hard to compare a bench press with a fly, or a squat with a hack squat, for example.
      At the end of the day, Arnold had a great work ethic, and he work tremendously hard, which is why he came so far, but there was a lot he didn't know.

      That is what some people just stopped after bodybuilding success doesn't have limits same what Mike tyson and the rock
      Mike was one of the greatest and popular boxer ever and after all he acted in blockbuster action movies!
      The rock was a great wrestler and popular but he was acting in movies at the same time wow!! And arnold still the biggest name in bodybuilding and he acted in many many action films and very successful actor and a governor too
      Only few legends are capable of doing this!

    I really needed to see this! Working as a truck driver, I have really let myself go.
    In my teens and 20s Arnold was a huge inspiration and really drove me to pursue weight lifting and maintaining excellent fitness but I struggled to gain any significant mass. I think diet really is make or break when it comes to building the kind of mass of these 80s legends.

    But one day I watched Commando, and I saw Arnold and I was in awe of him. I researched him non stop and I was so inspired.
    Today (not to brag) I currently have a six pack, 7 inch arms and I’m not going to stop.

      Strength and size are two very different things. You can achieve similar if not superior strength with higher reps and lower weight, versus higher weight and lower reps. It all comes down to you, and how dedicated you are to your training.

      Alexander so cold showers do help. The biggest controversy is whether it's hot or cold shower that help build muscle

    • Yo Daguy
      Yo Daguy 2 years ago

      @Alden Asher standard general idea would be like four sets per exercise, failing around 12 your first set, then add weight so you fail around 10, then 8, then 6. Thatll stimulate all four muscle fibers types. Also depends on what muscle you are working, some do great with higher reps, like calves.

    • Alden Asher
      Alden Asher 2 years ago

      @The Iron Sheik
      you're right. i think i've heard that you should keep doing reps until you fail to do one. if you do more than 12 reps, then you don't have enough weight and your muscle growth won't be as dramatic

    • Yo Daguy
      Yo Daguy 2 years ago +1

      @DRIS I get that the drugs thing isn't a positive inspiration, but it was pretty common knowledge all those guys were juiced, regardless of what they said at the time. Arnold got an insane amount if people motivated to improve themselves physically, that far outweighs the downside of a few people who actually developed the belief that this was possible for anyone with a clean program

    • Affeltrucken
      Affeltrucken 3 months ago

      The "schocking the muscles" thing is a complete myth, like honsestly, it really does not work. You can look it up for yourself, or I can link some stuff for you, but you can't deny it because it makes you feel like you've wasted training. I love the guy but he really didn't have a good understanding of some very basic training principles. He was working out in the "golden days" when no one really knew anything about bodybuilding and very little research had been done, so I can't blame him, but if you really want to train efficiently, don't take ALL his advice to heart, (shock the muscle, training to failure), although he has some good tips, like with his protein intake and chest exercises.

    It's pretty amazing to have been there from the start of this, "The Golden Age of Bodybuilding." My older brother was just getting in to BB in the early 80's and I remember how Arnold was his idol, and eventually mine too. Then came Conan The Barbarian, raw and bada$$, just as it should be! And of course followed by all the rest of the action hits he did (Terminator, etc). Pretty cool looking back at this time though. It was all new, and yet so perfect for that time period. A magical time indeed!

      @Adi Kryeziu Not all of nirvanas song are bad. Kurt hating religion has nothing to do with it. He was in rehab and turning his life around not to long before he died as well.
      The Bible teaches us not to beat ourselves up from what our consciences approve of.
      Coincidences do happen. You assume all religions have testimonies this powerful, but, I've researched these stories for sooo long. I've heard so many stories from other religions and people who are athiest and 95% it is Jesus Christ. You only think they have stories like this because your assuming it's all fake.
      My testimonies alone would be like winning the lottery 25 times. There is a point where a man can objectively see that it's no longer coincidence.
      I could tell you supernatural stories for literally days if I could remember it all. I assure you, Jesus Christ is real.

      2. "Prayers". What you call prayers , is what others call something like power of manifestation or visualization. It happens to ALL kinds of people from ALL kinds of religions. Your faith is absolutely not special in that regard. Everyday people get encounter by absurd cases of "coincidence" or call it "fate". This hasnt anything to do with jesus. But if youre lucky , i dont want to bother you.

      Awhile after that I was watching a preacher on TheXvid. I felt this compassion come over me. I had just started to truly believe my prayers would be answered. So, I prayed for the Lord to double his ministry, his finances, his marital life, etc… The next day when I woke up he had released a new video. He was standing on stage for a bit, smiling. Then he said "The Lord has just doubled his ministry, his finances, marital life, etc. He basically read my prayer back to me. My heart started pounding so hard, because I had forgot that I prayed.
      Many amazing prayers like this were answered and still being answered.

      He clearly had all the knowledge in training he needed, how else would he remain undefeated for multiple years? Better food? Food was wayy better quality back in the 50's through the early 70's, as their food wasn't highly processed like it is today, they didn't have high fructose corn syrup poured into everything, and food wasn't grown artificially and with rBST and all the hormones and shit. As for better healthcare? I mean, yeah healthcare is better and medical science has vastly improved, but whats that got to do with bodybuilding? Did Arnold have cancer back then or something? As for drugs, IDK, I mean he admitted to taking steriods back then because they were new (and didnt know the long term repercussions from taking them) they were legal at the time, and he took them under the care of a licensed physician as opposed to some sweaty guy in the locker room at the gym.

      Shocking the muscle isn't an actual thing btw, don't change your program if it's a good program for as long as you can. If you still are getting gains from it, keep it. If you aren't getting gains either your program is bad or you aren't eating nearly enough or both. You are 6 ft 135. That's super super skinny. You need to eat a shitton of food.

    Arnold still has the greatest physique of all time to this day. Modern day Olympians don't look good too much mass. Arnold looks perfect and that physique is timeless.

    Unworldly genetics plus Massive pain tolerance plus the guts and hardworking drive of a Honeybadger.
    The complete package he earned all of it
    The drugs helped him recover faster and maintain mass while dieting but the gas isn’t why he’s the best of his times. No he wouldn’t look like that without it but Ass busting hard work got him to top.

    This video teaches us that we can apply the same principles of bodybuilding to all areas of life. For example, if you do not naturally have the ability to do something, there are unnatural and/or illegal methods of doing that same thing. This could be applied to the concept of not having the money to purchase something, and then making the unnatural and/or illegal decision to steal it. After being correctly applied, people will gain wealth and prosperity that would not have been possible.

    Guy is amazing, amazing work ethic, but Man there is a reason why so many therapist and trainers today don't teach dumbbell flys, you are putting your shoulder in a weak position and are risking injury. Having torn my rotator cuff just recently from doing something like this I have now had to adapt my chest workout and change the way I lift to prevent further injury. I wish I had knew then what I do now.

    Arnold's can motivate a corpse to walk again... he was a great mentor for me as a teen and now I am in my 50s and he still keeps me motivated when I watch anything related to him with his philosophy and training. These old clips are golden and I like them better than the modern freakazoids who look more like a science experiment gone wrong then anything artistic and beautiful like bodybuilding was meant to be.

      What set Arnold apart from other bodybuilders and famous strong, good looking men was his charisma. Sure he worked hard but there is something about him that you just subconsciously like. He's strangely likable and used that charisma to become Mr. Olympia, then the Terminator and ultimately the Governor of California. This is just my opinion.
