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.

I made a thread last time that Ronnie Coleman had 21.7 inch arms, nobody believed me even though countless others saw it on video (videos were removed)  Huh

it makes me laugh how people get so upset when you say he had a 405 pound bench press as if that's somehow a terrible number, i'll gaurantee you that 98 percent of this board can't do that, me included.

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

I would think 405 would be hard for those pencil legs.  Roll Eyes

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? Roll Eyes

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

The might've been a little bigger but mainly he deflected the size issue by good cuts, posing and great calves.

Agreed... My dad is 6'0 even and he stood next to Arnold, and he was (my dad) what appeared to be exactly 1 inch shorter than Schwarzenegger..
