Arnold Schwarzenegger Bodybuilding History
Arnold Schwarzenegger is without a doubt one of the biggest stars Hollywood has ever known. And then we aren't only speaking about size. He's also the proof that everybody with a dream and a lot of perseverance can realize his dreams. Arnold was born on July 30, 1947 in Thal (4 miles from Graz), Austria. He grew up on the second floor of the 300-year-old home at 145 Thal-Linak with his parents Gustav and Aurelia, and his older brother Meinhard.
Arnold's approach to bodybuilding was fairly atypical. When he was 13, he played soccer, but felt very dissatisfied with a team sport. "I didn't like the fact that I couldn't be personally gratified" he declared. He tried other endeavors: track and field, boxing, javelin throw and weightlifting. But only when his coach suggested he tried working with weights, Arnold found his true vocation. When he first walked into a gym he was literally awed. "I found myself in a gym, in awe of muscles I had never seen before and of which I didn't even know the correct name. The bodybuilders were powerful, Herculean. Before my very eyes, my true future opened up: I had found the answer I had been looking for"; his quotes on "Education of a Bodybuilder". Thus began, at 16, the career of the greatest bodybuilder of all times, the man who would be crowned Mr. Olympia seven times.
Arnold Schwarzenegger Bodybuilding Quotes
ďI was always dreaming about very powerful people. Dictators and things like that. I was always impressed by people who could be remembered for hundreds of years. Even like Jesus, being remembered for thousands of years.Ē
ďThe only way to be a champion is by going through these forced reps and the torture and pain. Thatís why I call it the torture routine. Torturing my body. What helps me is to think of this pain as pleasure. Pain makes me grow. Growing is what I want. Therefore, for me pain is pleasure. And so when I am experiencing pain Iím in heaven. Itís great. People suggest this is masochistic. But theyíre wrong. I like pain for a particular reason. I donít like needles stuck in my arm. But I do like the pain that is necessary to be a champion.Ē
ďI have a good sense of my body in a bathing suit around people who appreciate what Iím doing, like a contest. Then Iím proud. On television I am proud. But on a beach most people are not experts. The general public doesnít know how to look. How proud can you be when they donít even know what theyíre looking at?Ē
