Arnold Schwarzenegger’s secret to gaining muscle
“The last three or four repetitions is what makes the muscle grow. This area of pain divides the champion from someone who is not a champion. That’s what most people don’t have, the guts to go ahead and say they’re going to go through the pain no matter what.” This is Arnold Schwarzenegger’s top secret or advice for all those who train in the gym and want to really gain muscle.
Because? Simple. It is not about always reaching muscular failure in each series, it is enough that the last repetitions are difficult for us to finish; and, therefore, there, you can help yourself from a spotter or partner to watch you in those last repetitions and help you, for example, to return the bar to the support without fear of injuring yourself or hurting yourself. (How to be a good ‘spotter’ with your gym friends).
The golden age of classic bodybuilding
The images belong to the golden age of Arnold Schwarzenegger’s bodybuilding, when he won 7 Mister Olympia titles and competed against Lou Ferrigno or his great friend Franco Columbu. They all starred in the documentary pumping iron (1977) and little by little Arnold was making a career in the cinema, first with Conan and then with films like Command either Terminator.
