He's very business-like and professional.  His German accent is very strong. 

Vince definately met him if he knows Arnold has a strong accent!!!

arnold started a bricklaying business with franco to repair peoples houses after a bad hurricane or storm i can't remember and they ended up getting so much business because there were no businesses in the area with a bricklaying speciality and many houses were damaged. in addition to this they charged high prices to wealthy people for work that was relatively cheap and not all that time consuming. this is why it was very profitable and they had more orders than they could fill.

i read it in a biography about him.

he said they did all the quotes in metric and no one understood, so they got away charging more. and he would run off to the bank and cash the check while Franco started the job so that "no one could pull a trick on us".

he also talked about an inspector asking if they had a permit. they asked what that was. a job number he replied. Arnold said "sure we got lotsa numbers!!"  they didn't know what the inspector was talking about.

Muscle Builder/Power October 1970.  Grin



good call Pollux, i thought it was paper tigers, but wasn't sure.  i think he got along great with the American guys until Franco showed up and then dissed them.

Let's not forget that Wieder brought Arnold over here, and basically he worked out, tanned and competed. Because he didn't have to work for a living like Sergio, Arnold had time to focus on other ventures. He knew, or had the foresight to know that he couldn't do bodybuilding forever. Whereas, Sergio again, kept competing and didn't maximize his potential. hell, the man was called "The Myth"

in the seventies Arnold called the Amerecans - Zane, Waller etc. paper champions, because they would workout and go to the beach. Arnold said he worked, invested and studied for school, while they did nothing but bodybuild.

nycbull has some good points.

and despite the bs that you can get anywhere in life if you just 'work hard' enough ( Roll Eyes), the fact is is that what seperates those in the highest places from the hordes of others who have the same exact qualities and potential is that they indeed DID get alot of breaks and luck along the way, being in the right place at the right time.


Arnold stated in the 80's   "luck can get you to the top but it won't keep you there."

Darren Ball has had the hernia fixed (honest!)

his name is D Ball??  he could be Governor according to some guys on here!!  dbol is the only reason Arnold is famous according to a few.

remember when Roland Kickenger broke onto the scene?  they called him the second coming of Arnold. he got a bigger push, acting classes, publicity. he even played Arnold in a Bio. where is he now? he took steroids and the powers liked him and gave him a big push. he should at least be Governor of Iowa?? he should have had a couple best selling books. he should have at least married into the Bush or Clinton family. he should own a few million in real estate.  he should have  a few of his own charities and fitness conventions. 

Roland musta got FAKE DBOL!!!!!
3485  Getbig Main Boards / Gossip & Opinions / Re: Arnold showing how it's done!! on: March 01, 2009, 12:01:35 AM
yea right, like he would have been a movie star and a governor without the dbal...you guys are shittin me...yea he was ambitious and he is probably smart but that doesnt make a movie star and a governor...he got in with the right people because of his muscles, his looks, thats it...he wouldnt have any of those connections without the muscles....he got the movie parts because of his muscles, take away the pink pills and his life would have been a shell of what it is.  He could not have what he has without those pink pills....

It amazes me to see people worship this guy, he is from a generation that had freedom that we will never see, his generation lived with little regulations or laws (including laws against pink pills), ate up everything, stole everythiong, developed the land to destruction, and then locked it all by making laws and regulations...and people worship these guys.

so go take some dbol and rule the world!  what's stopping you??

i think he might have been shot in the bicep in Cuba also way before his bodybuilding career began.

Hey, I really liked your response.  These days, guys just don't appreciate a girl that trains hard, looks good, kicks a** in the gym, etc.  For the record, I have always invited all getbig ppl (the term getbiggers sounds weird) to stop by & train with me.  How many have actually shown up? Wink   

Anyway, keep it up rip, you look f-in great! 

where are you, Jade?

Or are you dainty and place them down gingerly on the floor?  Bruno (my trainer/gym owner/confidant) gave me the ok to just launch those bitches when I finish a set.  I routinely make some twink or woman have to leap out of the way!  Bruno just laughs.  He and his wife only allow me to do this.  It makes some other members mad and they have quit.  We just laugh at them.

So how about you monsters?  You got it like that?

there's programs you can take to help you with your insecurities.
