A book that has been sitting on the Shelf for about 2 years is Arnie’s autobiography called
The main reason for that is the fact it is about 650 pages long
But I started it about a month ago and have nearly finished it
Autobiographies are tricky cause they only tell one side of the story and naturally enough people only give away what they want to give away
In fairness it is a very good book and it’s an interesting story
He actually had a few of his own businesses in both Construction and Real Estate so when he was building his acting career
He only took roles he wanted and didn’t need the money so could turn down roles he didn’t like
Unlike a lot of other guys who had to pay the bills
and while he is open about a lot of his mistakes such as affairs and being a bold boy
He gives little away on his use of steriods and really downplays it saying that he only tried very small dosages when he was in his teens
But to build a body like that the term “Genetic Freak” would be an understatement
And I would be more inclined to believe this which I received in an email from a muscle building fitness expert
“The injections started began almost immediately after Arnold started training as a bodybuilder [age 15] and a fellow bodybuilder claimed ‘Arnold took steroids in doses that terrified the other bodybuilders.”
So not only did Arnold start “juicing” at 15… but he was taking massive doses as well.
That’s why most fitness programs simply do NOT work for regular, drug-free trainers!
Because most bodybuilders and other top fitness athletes take massive amounts of steroids – heck, even Arnold himself was juicing at 15.
So… how do you know who’s taking steroids and who is really clean?”
And this image has had serious effects in the fitness industry for both makes and females
Males aspired to something like that and meant unrealistic expectations from their training
which in turn leads to a lot of frustration when not hitting those unrealistic goals
which again in turn tends to lead to one thing
^^^^ Unrealistic expectations usually lead to that
While females got frightened and thought a bit of heavy lifting will turn them into The Terminator
And this pushed a lot of ladies AWAY from weight training for that reason
So while Arnold has done a lot of great things for the Fitness industry as a whole and a lot of awesome things in his life
There is always 2 sides to a coin
and that is why it is SUPER IMPORTANT to be open minded when it comes to your training
and don’t be afraid to try things out for a decent block of time
and see for yourself what progress you make or if more importantly
you might actually enjoy it
