A Tribute to Arnold Schwarzenegger – greatest bodybuilder ever

17:55 Eugene Madondo 0 Comments


Arnold Schwarzenegger is the greatest bodybuilder ever; he is responsible for making bodybuilding so popular and mainstream.  Arnold just celebrated his 65th birthday less than a month ago on the 30th of July so I decided to dedicate a post to the great man. His bodybuilding journey started off a long time ago at the age of 15, in his native Austria.  He is a 7 time Mr Olympia which is the highest level of bodybuilding competition, after bodybuilding he went on to have a very successful Hollywood  career, appearing in movies like Conan the barbarian, Predator ,Terminator and so on. He even moved into politics becoming the Governor of California from 2003 until 2011. Arnie was not only good at pumping Iron and acting in action movies but he is also a successful businessman, I guess goal setting and hard work go a long way in whatever you choose to do.

The last three or four reps is what makes the muscle grow. This area of pain divides the champion from someone else who is not a champion. That’s what most people lack, having the guts to go on and just say they’ll go through the pain no matter what happens.

When I was 15 years old, I took off my clothes and looked in the mirror. When I stared at myself naked, I realized that to be perfectly proportional I would need twenty-inch arms to match the rest of me.

I knew I was a winner back in the sixties. I knew I was destined for great things. People will say that kind of thinking is totally immodest. I agree. Modesty is not a word that applies to me in any way – I hope it never will.

What we face may look insurmountable. But i learned something from all those years of competing. I learned something from all those sets and reps when I didn't think I could lift another ounce of weight. What I learned is that we are always stronger than we know.

For me life is continuously being hungry. The meaning of life is not to simply exist, to survive, but to move ahead, to go up, to achieve and to conquer.
