Arnold Schwarzenegger Breaking News - Global Arnold  

Arnold Schwarzenegger started bodybuilding at the age of 14 in his hometown of Graz, Austria. After being invited to train in the Union by former Mr. Austria Kurt Marnul, Arnold became dedicated and visited the gym everyday, breaking in on Sundays when it was closed.

After going AWOL from the Army in 1965, Arnold won his first ever title - the Junior Mr. Europe in Stuttgart, Germany. This was only the beginning of a long list of titles, and by the time he was 20, he'd won the Mr. Universe contest as well as being named the best built athlete of Europe and the International Powerlifting Champion.

His move to America sparked more glory, winning the Mr. Olympia contest consecutively from 1970-1975. After claiming that he was not giving anyone else a chance to win, Arnold retired in 1975 and moved into acting. However, in 1980 he made one last return and won the Mr. Olympia title a record breaking seventh time in Sydney, Australia.

In his prime, Arnold had 22" biceps, 20" calves and his chest was a massive 57 inches. Standing at 6' 2", Arnold also had a 34" waist and 28.5" thighs. His competition weight was around 235 pounds and he developed a training program which allowed him to gain a large amount of muscle mass in a very short time, showing dramatic effects upon his God like body. He was not a steroid user.

In today's bodybuilding the use of anabolic steroids and any other growth drugs have been banned. Athletes do however have food supplements, diets and techniques at their disposal to help train themselves and build their bodies.
