Arnold A To Z: A Celebration Of All Things Schwarzenegger

With his new autobiography on the way this fall, it's time to take a refresher course on Arnold Schwarzenegger: the bodybuilder, actor, author, and legend.

Do you remember the first time you met Arnold? Perhaps it was when you peered over the couch at that movie you were probably too young to see. Maybe it was on the pages of The Encyclopedia of Modern Bodybuilding, where you saw Arnie deadlifting barefoot on a log.

Wherever you met him, Austria's most famous export has profoundly influenced the way we think about strength, celebrity, and even how we visualize our own muscles. Join us as we revisit Arnold's body of work in preparation of his new autobiography, Total Recall.


Arnold Forever

In the galaxy of entertainment, stars are often born from obscurity. Now Arnold is the most-recognized champion in bodybuilding history.

An Excerpt From Arnold: The Education Of A Bodybuilder

In anticipation of Arnold's new autobiography, we take a look back at his first: the classic Arnold: The Education of a Bodybuilder.

Super(set) Man

When it comes to chest and back training, Arnold's philosophy could be described as "pair and pair alike." It worked well enough to claim seven Olympia titles.

Wisdom Of The Austrian Oak

Arnold knows best. Absorb his knowledge in this compilation of his "Ask Arnold" Muscle & Fitness columns.

Adopt Schwarzenegger's Growth Secret

I first saw him in the Guiness Book of World Records as the world's most perfectly developed man. It was a little tiny photo, maybe an inch high. From that point on, I wanted to have a muscular physique. Thanks Arnie for the inspiration to live a healthy lifestyle.

I remember first seeing Arnold in the movie, "Conan the Barbarian" when I was a kid. His role as Conan sorta inspired me to wanna build myself. 20 years later, and I am now a bodybuilder :) Never been more content with my life.
