"Do another set!" I heard the familiar voice of Arnold roar across the gym," recalls Dick Tyler in "West Coast Bodybuilding Scene: The Golden Era."
"For a moment, I thought he was urging Dave [Katz] on. Instead it was aimed at Don Peters on the preacher bench. Don was standing in a pool of sweat. I could see his muscles twitch involuntarily. 'You want to kill me or something?' he asked.
"'If that's what it takes for you to win Mr. America this year, yes.' He couldn't have made it much plainer than that.
"'OK, but I have to rest first.'
"'No,' said Arnold as he turned back to the calf machine for another set ,'you wait too long.'
"Don shook his head in disbelief and went back to another set of curls."
When Arnold spoke, everyone listened. He started out as just another new guy, and ended up the voice in the back of the mind of every lifter who trained alongside him. Hear his voice in today's workout.
