Bullshit!

Arthur Jones measured Arnolds arms at 19 5/8 cold. You can add in another 1.5 inches pumped which would bring his arms to over 21.

Franco had a 50 inch chest-and Armold makes Franco look like a 5th graders. More like 60 inches for Arnold's chest.

I also think the bench press is way too low.

With 26 inch legs??? Are you serious???

I would think 405 would be hard for those pencil legs.  ::)

I did 400# competition style bench (no bounce, 2 second pause) at 200#, most I ever did. Franco did 525# touch and go.

and what does that prove? we're supposed to believe it just because he says it? ::)

Arnold would not lie about meaurements or lifts, unheard of in Pro BBing.

There you go again belittleing poeples accomplishments just so yours can feel a little greater. 26 in thighs at 6.2 would make his legs look like sticks; small legs yes, but atleast 28-29, 315 for 8 for Arnold is the biggest player hater comment I've ever heard in my life. 405 on the Bench is nothing nowadays get through your pathetic skull 405=nothing 600=impressive, thousands can do 400 I think there is a few females that can do this. If you get impressed very easily then its up to you to live with the curse but always calling people bullshit just makes you look bad

Yes, Squad's post looks about right, Ken Patera and Kazmaier's chests were only 58-59 inches at 80-100lbs heavier.

The great Steve Reeves was close to Arnold's weight many times, and his claimed chest size only in the 48-52 range depending on year.

Think about some of these magical numbers attributed to Arnold, if any other bodybuilder claimed them, we'd be calling bullshit all day long.

Arnold could deadlift 700+ and there are pics of this. And you think his squat max was 400 for a couple?

His arms were definitely bigger than 19-20.

Squad, you're taking this too far my friend :)

315 for 8-10? bull. Seriously. At 21 with a few years training I can do 315 for 4 maybe 5 reps. and you're telling me Arnold Scwharzengger at 240 lbs on steroids with 20+ inch arms could only outlift me by maybe 4-5 reps?

  Arnold was much stronger on the bench than that. His single on the bench was 520 lbs, and he regularly benched 4 plates a side for 10. When you take into consideration that his chest could hold it's own to today's bodybuilders and that his triceps were pretty big as well, a 520 lbs bench is perfectly reasonable.

I agree and the contrast between his chest and his waist is ridiculouse; To say 52 on chest and 34 on waist is retarded. If his arms where less then 20 it would've have only been on contest day and anybody that has been in contest shape will tell you that during dieting you will at least lose an inch on your arms.

He officially deadlifted around 675 or maybe more in a contest in Munich and I too think that Squadfather's wrong in this one - no way in hell were his arms under 20", even onstage - maybe in the 1980 Mr O. Around 1974, they could easily be around 21" and his chest was pretty big too. And I'd say he benched and squatted a lot more than the numbers that have been mentioned.

To attack his chest and arms is plain stupid. His official deadlift is nearly 700, so to say he could squat only 400 is also plain stupid. There is no one alive on this planet that can deadlift 700 and can't get past 400 on the squat, impossible, however if this type of player hating allows people to believe that they are closer to arnold then by all means keep hating

Also, in Pumping Iron, Ed Corney does 12 reps with 315 and I'm sure Arnold is way stronger than Ed. Which means his squat should be around 500 easy.

So you are saying they didn't show Arnold doing the whole set because he's possibly weaker? Don't think so. Ed Corney himself has said Arnold was stronger than him in all lifts and that's why I mentioned it.

Ok so now you're explaining it. The thing is those numbers on Arnold's lifts have been published since the early 70s without any variance in the poundages, so the chances they're innaccurate are fairly low IMO. Arnold could easily be just a bit stronger than Corney and have the maxes mentioned.

Just a point of information...


The 700ish competition deadlift attributed to Arnold probably stems from the fact that Arnold got a lot of press coverage for winning a stone-hoisting contest in Munich soon after his first Universe win.

I believe he lifted the 680 lb stone higher than anyone else... but it was a sumo-style contrived lift on a platform (probably best equated to a power rack pull from the knees)... still impressive, but not a genuine deadlift.

If Arnold could have managed any of these lifts you noobs are attributing to him the Weider mags would have reported and photographed every one of these retroactive claims. If he really ever had a 20 inch arm he would have been photographed with a tape on his arm... hell, he didn't even deny Arthur Jones' measurement of 19.5 (slightly pumped).



Hate to admit it... but Squadfather is dead-on with this one.

I've shaken hands with a 300lb off-season Markus Ruhl and even he didn't have a 20 inch arm or 60 inch chest.

Hate to admit it... but Squadfather is dead-on with this one.

I've shaken hands with a 300lb off-season Markus Ruhl and even he didn't have a 20 inch arm or 60 inch chest.

I have seen 300 plus pound guys walking around in gyms that where very big in the chest back and legs yet had semi good arms nothing to brag about.
   Arnold had some of the biggest arms in the business and his chest to boot.   Markus Ruhl is a big guy but his arms are not impressive, nor should he be compared to the great one. Hope this helps. ;)

Haha exactly. Wisconsin BB has posted pics of him with a tape measure around his arm - they were 21" and the guy was 270. To say a 300 lb Markus Ruhl doesn't have 20" arms is quite possibly one of the dumbest things I've ever heard ::)

I think of close to 22" pumped at a non-contest 250 bodyweight was believable, so the number's not entirely contrived.

As far as being photographed with a tape measure, very few have done that, no one had an obligation to do so.

No. I said Markus was a big guy and that his arms are not impressive. To me they are not, big yes but this does not make an arm impressive. Markus to me looks like a big blob, he has no pleasing lines with all that blocky mass. This was my point.

To tell you the truth I never noticed.  He was great looking.  Size wize Lou was fucking enormous to me as was Bertil Fox.  I did not see in the 3 years or so I trained at Worlds Arnold that much.  Not as much as someone like Dennis Tinnerino, Kal, Roy Callendar, Dickerson, or even Franco.  I was just a kid minding my own business when I trained.  I do remember Arnold being very thick from the side to me.  He had unreal arms.  My arms at 247 were around 19.5 maybe 20 and his blew mine away .  And back then I maybe said 5 words to him.  I actually took a shower more times with him than speak actual words beside hey or see ya.  We had gang showers back then, so no gay shit.  But I thought Arnold was a powerlifter at one time

I think alot of you guys underestimate arm sizes.  My arms are 19ish and i can post a picture of them taped (i think i have already).  I have guys in my gym with 20 inch arms.  Its not THAT tough to get for a hardcore lifter who hits it hard day in and out for a decade.  Rule and Arnold are absolutely over 20.  Arnolds legs were rather small, so i believe 26.  Hammies are half the leg.  And 405 squat....dude i can hit that for 8 reps DEEP and i damn sure aint Arnold.....il guarantee he could hit 405 for reps.....and if he really focused on it, probably 5-600 for reps

Those numbers don't seem too out of whack.  Arnold was genetics at their long positive tail.  Period.  Look at the smartest fucks in school.  They don't study.  The best speakers are born that way.  Think of it this way.  Everyone knows there are obese people who eat like birds, exercise like mad, and lose nothing.  They are at one end of the curve.  Arnold was at the other.

Don't forget measurements are a mix of off and on-season. Some of Arnold's measurements were taken by Guiness Book of records. His OFF SEASON EXPANDED Chest was 57 Inches (Normal lean would be 53/54" which looks accurate to me). Arthur Jones measured his arms as reported. He stated his thighs were 28" - Not far off I reckon at his heaviest weight.
Arnold was huge. It's today's guys who exaggerate more. I don't believe that a lot of today's guys out-weigh Arnold by 50 Pounds  ???

I see that overnight everyone jumped all over my post re Markus Ruhl...

I think what's missing here is a basic understanding of ratios.


A 22'' arm is not 10% bigger than a 20'' arm, it's 21% bigger.

It's a ratio of squares (relating to area remember). Do you guys really believe Arnold's arms were markedly bigger than Oliva's? Even a 300 lb Ronnie didn't have 22'' arms for fuck's sake.


I stand by the Markus Ruhl statement, he's only about 5'9'' and his arms were definitely less than 20''... his chest was definitely less than 60''. A genuine 60'' chest is 44% bigger than a 50'' chest and only ever seen on people closer to 400 lbs than 300 lbs. Markus is huge, but still only 300ish lbs... Arnold weighed 250 lbs tops.

The lack of an arm taping photograph is very telling... the only people who do this are the pros with the very biggest arms:
-Lee Priest 21.5''
-Eddie Robinson 20.75''ish
-Vince Taylor (at 240 lbs) 19.5''
...Tim Fogarty will attest to this.

Most pros, in contest shape would be in the 17''-19'' category. FLEX magazine is bullshit, NOT gospel.

Bullshit!

Arthur Jones measured Arnolds arms at 19 5/8 cold. You can add in another 1.5 inches pumped which would bring his arms to over 21.

Franco had a 50 inch chest-and Armold makes Franco look like a 5th graders. More like 60 inches for Arnold's chest.

I also think the bench press is way too low.

 :D
friend,,a pump will add you a max of half an inch ,,usually one quarter of an inch to your arm,,,1.5 inches from pump?? i been siting here teaching you lasty 2 years and you still come up with this bullshit? 1.4 inch pump from training?

you all confuse seo and spot injects with nolotil to regular pump,,,bodybuilding is ruined by generation nothingness ,,this is not good if you really believe any one get even close to 1.5 inch from a pump on arms,,

in addition guys 6'1 on aas with good respond will mesure 17.5 inch off the aas and 19.5 inch on aas,,the freaky ones like arnold will have another inch due to phennominal respond to aas

lastr but not list,,bodybuilder such as heath and many other in generation nothigness get to 22 inches by the use and abuse of igf hgh and insulin

Ah, the folly of measurements and those discussing such.

I measured Arnold's height in Mit's Gym in Honolulu in Feb 1969. He was 6' 1 1/2" in the evening. That means he could have been 6' 2" in the morning.

I measured Arnold's upper arm in October 1968 in Golds Gym, Venice, at 21 1/2" after he worked out. He was 62" around the shoulders. He weighed about 250 pounds that day.

I read that Arnold did something around 520 pounds in the bench press and this is believable. With that huge chest he didn't have to bring the weight down that far! Some of you guys have no clue about lifting weights. Just because you can't lift 400 doesn't mean that others haven't.

...dude, you don't compare the circumference of the arm, you measure the volume.

All other things being equal (arm length etc) everything cancels out leaving you with a basic comparison of areas. The ratio of two AREAS is the ratio of the SQUARES of the circumference measurements.

So to compare a 21'' and 20'' upper arm you don't calculate 21/20... you calculate 212/202

Bizarre asumption. If Arnold's squatting was so much better, why did they  edit out the end of his set, leaving Corney's set as one of the most memorable of the movie.

In his set, I believe he got up to 5 or 6 with 315 on the bar and he stuggled on the last rep.  His form wasn't the greatest either, as he didn't even go down to parallel, although granted, his feet were fairly close together, and they have prevented him from going lower saftely.

Still, squatting seems to be one of things you're either built to do or not.  You have guys like shawn ray who in his 'final countdown' video only doing 315 tops for reps, and his legs are bigger than Corney's or Arnolds, and you have guys like Platz, who squat 500lb, all the way down for 20 reps.
And it's not a big deal for a college running back to squat 400 - 600lbs., and those guys may be 5'8 - 5'11, 180 - 220lb.

I'd be interested in what Arnolds leg press numbers were like, and I mean the 45 degree press, not the verticle presses that we've seen him doing in pictures.

Pollux: you are the best historian here when it comes to A. What do you think of his actual poundages?

Here's the thing...the '67 issue of Health and Strength has his best bench noted as being 408 lbs. The '67 issue of Ironman has his best bench noted as being 410 lbs. His best bench at the '67 German Powerlifting Championships was 374 lbs. and 440 lbs. at the same event in '68.

From a personal point of view, these numbers seem to be more accurate to me than Arnold's self-proclaimed 500 lbs.+ bench in his Encyclopedia book, simply because in all the years I have seen pictures of Arnold, a 500 lbs.+ bench press in something I have never, ever seen.

I'm not knocking Arnold in no way! But until I see otherwise, I'll stand by my view.

all things being equal, you can just compare the areas - but the area of a 20 in circle is 31.82 square ins & the area of a 21 in circle is 35.1 square ins (area of circle = Pi x R2) - simple maths will show that the latter is 10% larger than the former. 20 squared is 400, & 21 squared is 441, which again shows that one is 10% bigger than the other, not 40%.

Read again, it was Volume

Volume of a sphere = 4/3 pi r3

Volume of a cylinder = pi r2 L      ...where L is the length of the upper arm

For our purposes we should use the cylinder formula and assume a similar shape for the tapering of the upper arm at the elbow... so for our two hypothetical arms with circumferences c1 and c2

c1 = 2 pi r1 ...therefore r1 = (c1)/2pi

So the volume of the first upper arm can be expressed as: pi (c1/2pi)2 L

So the ratio of the volumes of our two hypothetical upper arms:

Volume of upper arm 1 = pi (c1/2pi)2 L
Volume of upper arm 2   pi (c2/2pi)2 L

so using the GetBig Strikethrough Canceling principle:
Volume of upper arm 1 = pi (c1/2pi)2 L
Volume of upper arm 2   pi (c2/2pi)2 L

= c12/c22

=ratio of the SQUARES of the circumference measurements

I see that overnight everyone jumped all over my post re Markus Ruhl...

I think what's missing here is a basic understanding of ratios.

A 22'' arm is not 10% bigger than a 20'' arm, it's 21% bigger.


...double checked your figures Trev, you're right.

But as you can clearly see from my original post I was comparing a 22'' and 20'' arm... not 21 and 20

Similarly my reference to a 44% increase was between a 50'' chest and a 60'' chest, you have asserted that my calculations are wrong when in fact you've been plugging different values into my formulas.

FAIL! (just kidding)

and 440 lbs. at the same event in '68.



That's what I was thinking. about 450 for a guy his size.

 405 seems low and 500+ is too high.

PS  no one here really knows the fucking truth anyway, we are all pissing in the wind about something somebody may or may not have done 30 years ago.

PPS  Arnold's arms are bigger than 19 inches..I don't give a fuck what anyone says. My arms are 19 inches and HIS are bigger than MINE

Height-6'1"
Weight 235-240 pounds
Arms-right at 20 inches pumped
Chest-52 inches
Waist-34-35 inches
Legs-26 inches

Bench Press-405 pound single, 315 for a good set of 8-10
Squat-405 for a couple of reps




why are you so fcuking obsess over what Arnold could lift or not. now that you found out his measurements, go ahead,  have a beer and get a bang out of life, fatboy

Schwarzenegger.com states that Arnold's top measurements (per his book Arnold:  Education of a Bodybuilder were:

Arnold's Top Form Measurements

Arms: 22 inches
Chest: 57 inches
Waist: 34 inches
Thighs: 28.5 inches
Calves: 20 inches
Weight: 235 pounds
Height: 6 feet 2 inches

See http://www.schwarzenegger.com/en/help/index.asp (http://www.schwarzenegger.com/en/help/index.asp)

Where'd you get your figures? 

As for his chest, I'd think that he'd have a much bigger chest than Steve Reeve's 52", since Arnold had a much bigger back and thicker pecs than Reeves.  It'd be easy for Arnold to reach 5" bigger than Reeves.

I just read on here somewhere that Franco's chest was 50"  If that is true then any moron with half a brain would know Arnold's chest was larger than Francos by more than just 2".  And if you don't think Franco had a 50" chest measurement then you are even more moronic.  I personally have seen Franco up close and if you saw in person (not reading a book or see on youtube which most of you do) then you could easily see by his lat size alone how he got a measurement like that.  Arnold benching over 500 I would believe would be a hard thing to do except maybe when he was powerlifting.  At his BB size and weight which was around 235 I find that hard to believe but possible.  And people who think that unless there is a pic or video of someone doing something that can be possible is bullshit is just dumb.  I have benched 585 and I have no pics or video.  But, I know along with many others who have seen me bench can attest to what I say.  Some of you come on here and talk about chicks you have fucked or whatever.  Do you have pics or video to prove it.  Not everyone has pics or videos of every single things they have done.  As for Arnolds measurements, the guys on here who have been with him or trained with him are way more credible than guys who come on here and talk shit because they saw it in a magazine or saw Arnold when he walked by.  How in the fuck can someone talk about someone else without even ever meeting with them or know them.  Just that cracks me up.  I don't even like Arnold that much other than how he looked but jeez get your shit straight.

I every bit just under 6'1".  I am in sandals in this pic I think but not sure.  And I see Arnold clearly a little taller than me.  The guy on here who said he is 5'10" and Arnold was shorter than he was or the same height is full of shit.

In his set, I believe he got up to 5 or 6 with 315 on the bar and he stuggled on the last rep.  His form wasn't the greatest either, as he didn't even go down to parallel, although granted, his feet were fairly close together, and they have prevented him from going lower saftely.

Still, squatting seems to be one of things you're either built to do or not.  You have guys like shawn ray who in his 'final countdown' video only doing 315 tops for reps, and his legs are bigger than Corney's or Arnolds, and you have guys like Platz, who squat 500lb, all the way down for 20 reps.
And it's not a big deal for a college running back to squat 400 - 600lbs., and those guys may be 5'8 - 5'11, 180 - 220lb.

I'd be interested in what Arnolds leg press numbers were like, and I mean the 45 degree press, not the verticle presses that we've seen him doing in pictures.


Sean Rey could knock out 405 for reps all day long on squats, I have seen it in person, so to say he is a 315 guy is flat out bullshit.

Arnold, in getting ready for the 1980 O, was hitting 400# vertical leg presses for high reps and 135 stiff legged deadlifts for hams (for high reps) at World Gym Santa Monica-they had no 45 degree angled leg press then.

The lack of an arm taping photograph is very telling... the only people who do this are the pros with the very biggest arms:
-Lee Priest 21.5''
-Eddie Robinson 20.75''ish
-Vince Taylor (at 240 lbs) 19.5''
...Tim Fogarty will attest to this.

Most pros, in contest shape would be in the 17''-19'' category. FLEX magazine is bullshit, NOT gospel.


The Luke

There is NO pro that has a 17 inch arm in contest shape-sorry buddy.

The SMALLEST pro arm I have ever seen is Chris Dickerson's 1981 Mr. O when he had 17.5 inch arms. But Chris was competeing at only 185# then.

GH15 you are a fucking MORON.

Whn I first started training my arms would pump up 1.5 inches easily-and they still pump up 1.25 to 1.5 inches today.

The notion that a pump can only give you a 1/4 inch on your arms is so fucking far off base that it proves you're the fraud of frauds.

  "Squadfather" seems to find solace in believing that pros are only 3 or 4 times stronger than he is, instead of the 5 or 6 times which is closer to reality. Pathetic. The bottom line is that Arnold truly did have 22" arms in the off-season and could bench 520 lbs for a single.

  Just because you are unable to have 22" arms, it does not follow that someone with superior genetics - higher muscle fiber density, thicker bones, superior ability to syntesize actin and myosin, etc - who also uses anabolic drugs wouldn't either.

If you can only pump up your arms 1/2 inch max then you have 15-16 inch arms.

..

GH15 is completely correct. i was always amazed at how much i felt pumped yet barely nudged the tape. i figured that i needed 19 inch arms to get 20 inch pumped. Didnt happen. At 19.5 inches (on one arm) 20inches pumped was measured...my other arm at just over 19 inches didnt make it.

also those measurements SF posted must be total crap. At 6 foot tall 26 inch legs are like pencils. not even rugby players have these. Arnold may not have had the proportions today's judging demands but even his 28 inch leg claim seems small on that frame.

and 52 inch chest...fuck me if you think thats true then you gotta get off the pipe. if his arms arent 21 inch cold then id be very surprised..

in fact all those measurements wreak of a jealous biatch who has stick insect physique and has spent loads of $ on gear and still going nowhere.

from arnies earlu pictures he's got enough chest/back muscle to easily be 52 inches and easily push 400lb bench..THEN he packed on the size. Get one of your 6ft tall buddies and have him stand in front of you and take some pics and then measure him.

then compare to arnies early pics. im sure youll find that at 6 foot, such proportions = big measurements and impressive strength.

duche.

this was a waste of a post but ....for the fun of it

Yeah right, Im on it...... just for you....... Hey I tell you what Mr Broomstick, next time youre in So Cal let me know, I will take your skinny ass pencil arms thru a real BBing workout, and show you what a good arm pump is..... How is that, you game pencil arms??????

theres a guy who can pump 2inchs blown up....its weird.
You're a fucking idiot.

First you said you can only get a 1/4 inch pump, now it is half an inch-more of your stupid fucking bullshit.

My arms pump anywhere from 1.25 to 1.50 inches cold to fully pumped.

Hey I tell you whay Mr. gh15 Nobody, please come on out to So Cal and lets train for an afternoon, we can do arms and I will show you how to bust past that 17 inch barrier you are stuck at.

since your english is as good as mine obviously ....you fail to read that i said reptetvly thgouh posts on here that it is 1/4 inch and 1/2 inch ..somewehere in between after you give the arms a oil free pump,,
now why would i come to train with you when i had your arm size at most likely hell of a lot better condition before 19? what you can teach me or show me that i havent thought or paied much money for? can you make me wizer? i dont think so since you use lots of curse words and most likley past records in the local police departmens,,

to me you sound like a local bodybuilder,,pretty frastrated,,,a one that now have no more sources on us grounds and beg to my friends in europe to ship him  some profucts,,why exactly would i come to train with you ?
 give me one good reason,,you will show me that at your age the arm muscle is more saggy and thats why you can gain little more than half an inch on the arms past training? i have seen the freakiest of the freakiest ,,world level champions,,,i have seen some 6'4 monsters you wouldnt imagine in your life time that were down into single digit bodyfat,,they all were 1/4 to 1/2 inch "bigger" with oil free pump..im one of the best and still me get about 1/2 inch max pump on my well over solid 20s friend

For me it was oubout one inch, if it's more than that i think that will be something else inside, if you see what I mean.

1...most of the arnold pics floating around are shopped eg. the one where he's doing the right bi pose in the sun.

2...Squadfather is a whole lot closer to the actual facts than every claim ever printed.

3...someone/anyone show me a clip or pic of prime arnold doing 4 plates on the bench? hell, show me him even doing 3 plates for sets and reps.

4...most of you guys are basing your retorts on your own measurements, which 9.999999999999999999999 times out of ten are either completely delusional, a lie, or taken when your body fat is about a million times higher than arnold's ever was. some of you guys with 18" ars should try getting ripped some time...that is, if you can handle the cold hard fact that your cut measurement is actually more along the lines of 15" or less.

5...arnold claimed a squat of 400lbs for 8 reps. this was done with knee wraps on and not to parallel. put 400 on the bar, take the knee wraps off and get him to do full squats and you'll find Squadfather is pretty accurate.

6...a true 52" chest cut is an enormous chest. again, i'll simply request those claiming to the contrary to take an honest assessment of their condition (or better, get a knowledgeable independant person to do it for you) ie are you cut, abs, lines, etc.

7...arnold's and arnold guy's claims have gone up proportionately with the contemporary bber ie if ronnie coleman can bench 500+  real or imagined (in ronnie's case, prob closer to real) then arnold's 400 (and imo, Squadfather was generous here) looks pretty paltry by comparison, bber or not. we saw an off season franco struggle with touch and go reps (2) on pumping iron and franco had far far better leverages for benching than arnold.

8...bodybuilding 101 = grossly inflated egos... anyone that actually witnesses these guys training with real weights in the gym has a good chuckle when reading the claims in the magazines. cutting these claims in half would be a good formula for deciphering what they really lift. i know some of you retards like to say that, if ryan kelly can do 650 raw, then trey brewer should be at least close to that, but that thinking is so retarded that i would be stuck on this post for the next 4hrs and 10 pages pointing out the reality. to be quite honest, it would feel like i was teaching 6 yr old special ed kids how to read.

9...arnold was bloody strong, but he was a bber. he was training his muscles, not his ego or for p/lifting comp. he squatted with the bar very high on his traps and benched with minimal arc and a smooth rep cadence. he did not train for brutal all out effort, but rather for sustained bursts with a greater total workload. his was more an accumulation of damage rather than an all out assault on his mucles.

10...i have a suggestion for bob chic or maybe even special ed. it would be a great discussion point and very interesting if someone (reliable) took a taped meaurement of the arms, legs, chest and scaled the body wts of every competitor at this years mr olympia on competition day. yes, the bbers are much larger today and you have the added inches of synthol, etc but it would provide a useful insight and perspective on past and present claims of pro bbers. i'd be willing to bet 1000 dollars u.s that less than half of these competitors have 30"+ thighs, 20"+ arms or genuine 52"+ chests. this despite the site injection mania (which can add inches to measurements).

GH15 you are a fucking MORON.

Whn I first started training my arms would pump up 1.5 inches easily-and they still pump up 1.25 to 1.5 inches today.

The notion that a pump can only give you a 1/4 inch on your arms is so fucking far off base that it proves you're the fraud of frauds.

Do us all a favor and put a cork in your snake oil bullshit.

A full pump adds around 1/2 inch to a muscular arm of around 18 inches. I competed for nearly 40 years and can't remember anyone pumping up much more than that including Arnold. Sergio and Lou maybe gained 3/4 inch. And Johnnyvegas, I've seen your photographs of your twig arms, could you come round to my kitchen and stick your hand down my sink to remove a blockage thats there?
Thanks sonny.

Franco was laughing during that bench. he was hardly concentrating. here is a shot of Franco benching MORE than 4 plates a side with the spotter not even in ready position, which would indicate he's doing more than just a few reps.

actually, i was thinking of the gym shot where arnold comes back from 'stay hungry'.

franco's max is a whole different animal to arnold's. franco had perfect leverages ie very deep rib cage and thick chest combined with very short limbs. his rom was about a quarter that of arnold's and, beside that fact, he was much more motivated to be as strong as he could be and typically used much more p/lifting movements and heavier weights than arnold.

even so, there is no evidence whatsoever of franco doing 500lb+ bench press.

30 years from now, arnold, circa 1974, was doing 800lb bench presses and franco, 1000lbs and they will have had 70"+ chest girth.

lol probably right about that last point. time often exaggerates the truth, as we're possibly seeing here. but i think it's good to overestimate, even slightly, than underestimate, as with all the photos we've seen of Arnold/Franco benching, there's no proof that they couldn't have done more in a more focused and closed-off environment, going for that 1RM or just to put more focus on training, without the cameras.

i personally believe Franco could bench 500 for at least a 1RM in his prime. Arnold was probably about 50lbs less than Franco, but at Arnold's strongest, I also wouldn't put a 500 1RM behind him. there are just so little bench training pics out there.

It's common knowledge that Arnold lied about his height.  Now, if you are going to lie about how tall you are then it stands to reason that you would also lie about your other body measurements.
you can only lie about your height max 2inches though pro football players in united states add max 2inches  they figure 1inch for cleats and add in the extra inch for leverage for stats.  Most men add in one inch since they always measure themselves with shoes on if you look at the chart for height to weight ratio you will see a little disclaimer saying, "standard one inche shoe height was worn"

I read Arnolds encycolpedia and theres a piture of him benching 4 plates,REPs?maybe 1 or 2 he explained it was very hard for him to Bench heavy due to his long arms and he also stated that Franco was much stronger than him.
His arms were probaly fully pumped a fraction over 20, you must remember the shape of his biceps are extremly blessed giving that optical illusion of them being much bigger.
As far as the chest measurement it was the biggest for his generation and can stand toe to toe with the best pros of today.
I understand Squads frustration with Arnold nut huggers claiming rediculous measurements.

Got this from ironhistory:

I heard from Jusup that Arnold went from a shadow of his former self to his Olympia condition in e i g h t weeks - Arnold is a true freak. A friend of mine has film material of that training-where Franco is joining the duo of Arnold and Jusup.
One could still see that despite Arnold not being in his legendary shape he has fantastic genetics. They pumped ca. 5 sets of around 15 reps with 330-350 in the bench press on that film, in a quick pace and no limit efforts.

Questioning lifting claims is 100% legitimate.

However, purposefully arguing for down-tuned abilities is not.

I know several 4 plate benchers and people who can rep 3 plates for 8-10. And they're natural, and they're NOWHERE Arnold's size - not in the target muscles, not in bodyweight. I can put up 3 for 4 maybe 5 reps...and I'd look like a fucking clown next to Arnold. And you're telling me he could only beat me by 4-5 reps? lol

I don't remember the source but there was an article (maybe from Dave Draper's site?) - a workout article -  where Arnold trained chest and did (I assume) "bent-arm" flyes (but still) with 100 lbs.

Arnold could deadlift 700+ at a young age. That tells you about his strength potential. But somehow he'd struggle putting up 315 for 11? LOL.

Very common for novices to assume that muscle size = strength. That's true only to some extent, it doesn't follow an exact 1-to-1 relationship when it comes to BB.

Everyone knows this - except total novices. But that's not the point. That much muscle is still going to have the ability to move a lot of weight. and that, my friend, is a very uncontroversial statement.
Arguing that "well size doesn't nec. equal strength" is bull when you're talking 315 lbs. That much muscle mass is absolutely gonna have a lot of horse power.

Maximum tissue size is built mainly by moving progressively more moderate/moderately heavy weight many times to pump the tissue, it doesn't require great strength and the training reflects it. Padilla was arguably the best short guy ever, more tissue than Columbu but i've never seen any great strength claims about him or about Dillet, one of the best physiques ever. Chuck Sipes would've been the biggest BB of the 60s if there was a direct strength/size correlation. Coleman's strength is the exception not the rule.

Still waiting for a viable explanation as to why Schwarzenegger the great squatter's set on the movie was edited. :D

He's 6'1", not 6 or 6'2". He's not known for extreme candor so don't expect it in his books...duh! His best measurements aren't completely false, they're pumped measurements off season.


Title: Re: ARNOLD SCHWARZENEGGER'S REAL MEASUREMENTS AND LIFTS!!!!!!!!!
Post by: MarvinEderFan on April 15, 2008, 05:34:30 AM
Why was it edited? Because there wasn't marketing appeal in watching guys just move big weights. That might have more of a NEGATIVE effect. It was hard enough to market it as it was without losing content.

You are SERIOUSLY wrong. Enough drugs and muscle size will without a doubt generally enable the lifter to move heavier weight. Even when doing sets of 10-15 reps.

If you think Arnold would struggle with 315 for 12 then you're living in fantasyland, sorry. And I am generally quite a skeptic.

Bizarrre logic given the fact that they then included all of Corney's squat set, the best training sequence of the movie along with Ferrigno's. All of those sets would've been similarly edited, which they weren't.

Who said struggle with 315, he'd struggle with 400 unlike the stronger BBs like Sipes, Szkalak, Fox and Columbu. Low 400s as a max. is about right, that's the same range that's been published without change since the 1970s. That doesn't translate to bangin out 5 x 15 with 335-350.

I'd say he could hit low-400s no problem. at his best, I would give him upto 500.

1975, when the majority of his training pics were filmed, would likely not be his strongest, so it's not entirely fair to give estimates based on the weight he threw up in those pics and footage.

Everyone needs to stop thinking Arnold could have possibly been a contender today in his 1970's shape. Sure with today's drugs, training styles, whatever. But he was not as big, not as strong, not as lean, the list goes on. If you think he was benching 350 for five sets of 15 without struggling I've got a sandbox in Florida to sell you.

Does it really matter how much Arnold could bench?  He was a bodybuilder (and a very successful one at that), not a powerlifter.  The fact is, Arnold won 7 Olympias and took no lower than 11th in the other shows he competed in.  That makes him the "numero uno" bodybuilder of the 70s and one that is debatably better than most of the Mr. Olympias who've since followed him

Does it really matter how much Arnold could bench?  He was a bodybuilder (and a very successful one at that), not a powerlifter.  The fact is, Arnold won 7 Olympias and took no lower than 11th in the other shows he competed in.  That makes him the "numero uno" bodybuilder of the 70s and one that is debatably better than most of the Mr. Olympias who've since followed him

no it doesn't but my point was to blow to shit the stupid claim that he could bench 540 and i did just that.

for all of you nuthuggers who believe the Great Arnold walked on water here's the truth

Height-6'1"
Weight 235-240 pounds
Arms-right at 20 inches pumped
Chest-52 inches
Waist-34-35 inches
Legs-26 inches

Bench Press-405 pound single, 315 for a good set of 8-10
Squat-405 for a couple of reps


I do appreciate your effort to inject a little truth into the b.s. that proliferates Arnold's accomplishments, Dave ... I really do.

Still ...

I am, if not certain, pretty sure Arnold could've benched into the mid-400s. 

I know benching 405 alone is quite an accomplishment and all, but, without being able to prove it, I'd bet Arnold was capable of 450 or so.  I also think that he could "squat" more than 405 at his peak, but that depends a lot on how you define a "squat."  (Arnold's quadriceps were awesome in 1974.  He did look as if he could squat more than 500 then -- though, of course, looks aren't everything.)

I agree on Arnold's waist.  From everything I've seen, he'd be hard-pressed to present less than a 33" waist even when ripped.

But I do think that same Arnold would've registered a larger chest measurement.  My boyfriend Sean has a huge chest, and he is shorter than
Arnold's supposed 6'2"; still, he indicates a man of Arnold's dimensions would have to be upwards of 54" at least.  (Side-note:  Sean doesn't think Arnold had much less than a 34" waist in ripped condition.)  57" seems a little ridiculous, but 54" or so seems well within the realm of possibility.)

What do you think, Sarcasm?

what i think is that a lot of people throw around numbers like "60 inch chest", "22 inch arms", "540 pound bench press" with absolutely no idea of what they're talking about or how large those MUSCULAR measurements are or how heavy a bar loaded down with 5 big plates and a quarter on each side on a bench press really is.

I'm with you on that Squadfather... Fuck... That kind of weight is just fucking ungodly.

Seriously, has anyone ever really seen a 21 inch CUT arm? It's fucking massive looking.

Why is it so hard to believe that those were Arnold's measurements (the ones you've posted)?

Look at Ronnie... The guy weighed 290 pounds at 5'10" and his arm was around 23 - 24 inches?

Is it really THAT hard to believe that Arnold's arm wasn't as big as it's made out to be?

For what it's worth...

A friend of mine (credible guy, someone I would believe) met Dorian Yates at a seminar in Belfast just after the '93 Olympia. I don't have any verification of this story, but I'll tell it for what it's worth...

Yates was at his best ever, no tears... no injuries... and 295 lbs with a hint of abs.

They got to talking after the seminar... Yates mentioned that having overdieted in '92 he had been a little less drastic in '93 which resulted in him coming in some 15 lbs heavier. But that he had been contest ready nearly a month out from his second Mr O win and that next year ('94, not realising he'd be injured) he hoped to diet less and come in around 270 ripped.

My friend mentioned FLEX Wheeler's claim of a 23.5'' arm at 220 lbs in contest form... Yates laughed and replied that at 295 lbs off-season his arms only barely broke the 20'' mark (20.125'') when he finished a bicep workout. (Apparently Yates was very fastidious about measurements and records)

To add credence to that story, the Guinness Book of Records people measured Greg Valentino's synthol filled growths live on tv... the result: 24.5'' and 24'' does tha tally with Arnold having 23'' or 22'' arms?

If your arm actually measured more than 22'' you'd be able to touch your bicep peak with the index finger of that same arm.

2 months ago in MD in the kai greene interview, he claimed 21" arms at 17 HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAH honestly i couldn't stop laughing for some time after that. Then he went on to say that his arms were at least 23" now.. What a fucken idiot..
Arnolds claims were most likely exagerated (but stil he is the best ever).
Today ever pro out there is claiming 22" guns and a 50" chest its complete bullshit

Hahaha, the guinness book used to have the 56', 21' measurements for Arnold in the late l980s (which was when I last looked at it).  They might have qualified it with a "claims to have" though.

i can't see how much is on the bar at 0.57 because some of the 45s and 35s they used regularly were very large.

what i do know is there is no way in hell arnold was ever repping 360 or over 400 for reps on a high incline like that.

hope this helps.

What's so damn impressive about a 50" chest for crying out loud! It's not that big at all. Many of you are acting like Arnold claimed the impossible. He was a HUGE man, with very large upper measurements and proportions. He was NOT 5'6". He was at least 6'1" and well into his 250's.

Personally, I believe the 22 1/4" PUMPED
and I believe he had a 57"-58" PUMPED

I'm quite sure at his strongest, he was able to press MINIMUM 420 pounds on the bench for REPS and a max of over 500 pounds.

He was the greatest of all time.

Time to set the record straight: 

-Arnold was 6ft. 1; even though he liked to believe he was 6ft.2.
-Arnold sat between 230-240.  When off the cycles he would drop to 200.

 
There is no clear evidence of Arnold's  true strength and lift numbers. However, Franco often joked that Arnold was weak!

Arnold's arms have been recorded at being 19.5 inches and 21 inch on a full pump.

OK, enough said. 

Look Getbiggers, Arnold is just a man!  Yes, he responded well to the drugs but worked his absolute butt off in the gym. 

Arnold is the most driven man on the planet.  But i repeat he is still just a human being!

Arnold could deadlift 700+ and there are pics of this. And you think his squat max was 400 for a couple?

His arms were definitely bigger than 19-20.

Squad, you're taking this too far my friend :)

315 for 8-10? bull. Seriously. At 21 with a few years training I can do 315 for 4 maybe 5 reps. and you're telling me Arnold Scwharzengger at 240 lbs on steroids with 20+ inch arms could only outlift me by maybe 4-5 reps?

we are the same age similar strength too lol

also about this. my arms are 18.5 cold flexed. no way arnies were 20. at least 21.

It's so predictable.
I dont respond to the picture, because anyone with a brain knows that its not cum.  The only idiots who make the jokes, are squad, and his little gang of fatasses.

I dont care how much he posts it, I know everyday, when I call him out on being fat, his only defense is "look at this picture of gay cushingrw" heeheehee.

He never says anythign abotu being fat.

Bullshit!

Arthur Jones measured Arnolds arms at 19 5/8 cold. You can add in another 1.5 inches pumped which would bring his arms to over 21.

Franco had a 50 inch chest-and Armold makes Franco look like a 5th graders. More like 60 inches for Arnold's chest.

I also think the bench press is way too low.

YES!

Also Jones said Sergios were barely over 20, measured cold first flex on the morning.

My arms pump anywhere from 1.25 to 1.50 inches cold to fully pumped.

Hey I tell you whay Mr. gh15 Nobody, please come on out to So Cal and lets train for an afternoon, we can do arms and I will show you how to bust past that 17 inch barrier you are stuck at.

For what its worth. Frank Zane trained with Arnold sometimes and they got into some "heavy" squatting at one point. According to Frank, they worked up to 405,  he got up to 10 reps and Arnold got up to 8. That would be about a 500 lb max give or take.   Frank had the better thighs, so then numbers make sense.
AS for benching, in the book Pumping Iron, Charles Gaines describes Arnold "Happily pushing 315 lbs 12 times off his supine self"  Again no reason to doubt it. This was like the 5th set of 9, working up to heaviest weight and then back down. So thats maybe a 450 max bench"???

He said 500 unassisted, and I know ive seen pics of him handling 455 before.

Post them, that would be helpful. I can see him getting 5 plates maybe for 1 rep, but I have never seen anything like that taken of him. Saw one of him and Franco at the Pit and he had 445 on the bar with Franco standing by. That was the only pic I have seen of him with more than 400 on the bar.  NOT saying it didnt happen........

What's so damn impressive about a 50" chest for crying out loud! It's not that big at all. Many of you are acting like Arnold claimed the impossible. He was a HUGE man, with very large upper measurements and proportions. He was NOT 5'6". He was at least 6'1" and well into his 250's.

Personally, I believe the 22 1/4" PUMPED
and I believe he had a 57"-58" PUMPED

I'm quite sure at his strongest, he was able to press MINIMUM 420 pounds on the bench for REPS and a max of over 500 pounds.

He was the greatest of all time.




You have a sickness, srop living your life through others.

It's already been explained about measurements. He was a bodybuilder who used huge ammounts of drugs to attain his physique, whenever he stopped usage he looked average and he was not an elite strength athlete.

Fucking idiots randomly throwing about numbers.

See this is EXACTLY where I'm coming from.

My (left, I only use this for reference) arm measures 18 cold. And I don't have fat arms either. My bf isn't low - but it isn't high either.
And compared to a 300 lb OFF SEASON Dorian -- his were 20 WITH pump? WTF.



Two inch circumfrance is a huge difference, your thinking of it as distance.

i just googled arnold and powerlifting,in 1968 arnold competed in his last powermeet,the german powerlifting championships,he squatted 215 kilos which is close to 500# he benched 200 kilos which comes out to about 440# and he deadlifted 710#this was all done while he was still quite young and would say he got stronger,he just didnt max out for one rep after this.

talking bout the measurements , not your debate on a 500lb bench

no you retard 400 is nothing 600 would be great. You should know that every gym has a dozen guys doing 400 and probably only 1 or 2 doing over 450 so ya big differance you idiot....think about it like this.. thousands can run 10.6 100m, but only a few can run 10.0 100m, obviously this wouldn't be logical to you since you haven't experianced these numbers before

It's all relative. 400 is astonishing weighing less than 200 pounds. 500 is also astonishing at 220.
500 is less impressive at 350. It is

Id say Arnold was a prettys trong guy.Those PL numbers aint too shabby considering we are talkin about a genetically skinny kid to begin with. I remember a picture where hes BB rowing 3 plates a side without straps and his upper body parallel to the floor balancing on a weight bench LOL kind of strange why anyone would want to make it harder when off the floor with straps and a more upright position wouldve been safer.But thats a solid bent over row by any standards IMO

No shit, who are these people and why are they on a bodybuilding website? Arnold had a huge upper body with solid density, and he paid his dues lifting heavy for years. 450- 500? no doubts he could.

You said between 450 and 500, the former is nothing according to you, you little fucking weasel you said it, your stupid statement.

I would destroy you in any athletic pursuit and i'm natural.

You go back to worshipping the walking pharmacy that was Arnold.

As to everyone speculating what Arnold could lift based on his size i laugh, little Franco had him on every lift, it has jack to do with size.

Athletic pursuit, I think you logged in to the wrong forum, this is a BODYBUILDING forum.

Lifting fits in, of course i can also run five yards without collapsing, which would probably be a problem for you.

As i said anything.
