Arnold didn't have huge legs, but I love the seperation and the size of his legs.  Now, I know all Getbiggers have 35" shredded cathedral pillars on their lower halves, but to rest of the world Arnold's legs were huge.....and of course it's the validation of total strangers we're all after.

Agree hipolito.  I totally admire Dorian for his work ethic and workman, hard, non-flamboyant training style but BBing in general was at its best in Lee Haney's time, the direction of mass over shape started with Dorian and got worse afterward.  Back in the iron age, they didn't accept distended guts and organ growth.

hard work.   most people decide that calves can't change - that they are completely genetic, so they don't train them at all.

Robbi Robinson had horrible calves throughout his career, but when he focused on them in1979 he still added an inch to them. so a black guy with bad calf genetics can add an inch in a year. what can a guy with good insertions and genetic predisposition do if he focuses on calves harder than any other group??

I was at Golds Gym in October 1968 when Arnold arrived. I got to measure his arms one day and they were 21 1/2 inches. That day he wouldn't let me measure his calves and told me to come back in two weeks. I always wondered what was supposed to happen in just two weeks.

He is the only bodybuilder from those days who had huge calves from the side. Except he had an unusual lump on the inside. You can see it from the back as well. What the heck is that? If you compare his calves at their biggest with the guys today who have huge calves his seem odd. So we know what huge calves look like and Arnold's look weird.

There were accusations that Arnold cheated and got help from doctors. Joe Gold claimed he knew the truth but wasn't telling.

Calves don't disappear. Mine are still over 17 " cold with absolutely no calf training. Arnold's calves have atrophied quite a lot. A mystery!

What you, Arnold?

In addition to Schwarzenegger, Eric Fankhouser and other bbs with extreme calf development have similar natural muscle formation "lumps" which appear more prominently on the inner head of the gastrocnemius in that particular calf pose.

calf from the 70's and nowadays, not even scaled correctly you can see the calf is practically the same.
And Patrick has the exact same shape calves as arnold just smaller.

Thanks for that photo. Who knows what Arnold did? He sure changed his physique and condition after living in LA for a couple of years. Must be the west coast climate!

 I don't think Arnold's legs were as nearly as underdeveloped as some people said they were. It was just that his upper body overwhelmed everything else--especially his chest.
SPOT ON!

that 'bump' is often genetic.  even your buddy and namesake goodrum has it, and he sure as hell didn't shoot anything in them.

I just take offence to people accusing Arnold of having fake calves.  watch 'Twins'.  his calves danced and split like fooken crazy. 

how could Arnold get implants in Tijuana in the 60's or 70's that good when guys today look like idiots when they fake their calves?Huh

I would bet Arnold never did a single calf raise in his life prior to moving to US
