The Arnold Blueprint is a program that works well with a partner. This isn't only because you'll often need a spotter—you'll definitely want one today—but also because Arnold viewed training partners as a crucial part of his success. And the feeling was more than mutual.
"When he got there, the place lit up. Now it was time to train," recalled Ed Corney, one of Arnold's training partners, about Gold's Gym in Venice. "He brought that with him. You're upstairs changing into your clothes, and you can't wait to get out there and right into the mainstream of top training."
Frank Zane put it even more simply in an interview with Bodybuliding.com: "Arnold was the best training partner I ever had."
This was one of Arnold's less-heralded qualities: He made everyone better simply by the level of care and enthusiasm he brought to the project of bodybuilding. Today, light up your entire gym with the passion you bring to this chest and back workout.
