He's 6'1".

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

Legs weren't judged the same as they are now... Everyone's legs were smaller back then.

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.

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.
franco had a 50 inch chest are you fucking crazy? do you know what a 50 inch chest is ?

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.

please, 500 for reps is pretty much standard around here. Most of us are just too busy fucking 10/10 model chicks on our private yachts to take pictures.  Grin

You mean like Platz or Oliva.. Roll Eyes Arnold's were smaller relative to other BBs of the era, but it wasn't a huge factor because of what he did to minimize his weaker areas.

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 Smiley

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.

Thank you.

Mine is about 50 and I sure as hell hope Franco-with a 525# bench-has a bigger one.

As for Kaz, Arnold's chest is bigger-Arnold had the biggest chest in BBing.

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.
