With you Arnold Schwarzenegger: actor, 75 years old, former governor of California, Hollywood star and legendary bodybuilder with 7 Mister Olympia titles. But… how do you imagine the great Arnie as a teenager? Born in Austria, he came to the US with his family shortly after and already a big fan of fitness.
This vintage photo of Arnold Schwarzenegger at just 16 years old and some muscles inappropriate for his age has left us with our mouths open. In fact, looking at the gigantic size of his biceps it seems that even the photo is photoshopped. But her beardless adolescent face doesn’t deceive…
Schwarzenegger and his trapezoids and pecs from Mister Olympia
But we continue to hallucinate with the brutal size of his trapezius and pectorals or the definition of his abs at only 16 years old, incredible!
It should be remembered that Arnold Schwarzenegger won his first Mister Olympia title in 1970 at the age of 23 and his last in 1980 at the age of 33, ten years later. A wild reign that neither Lou Ferrigno nor his great friend Franco Columbu, now deceased, could avoid. That is why he is on the podium of the best bodybuilders in history along with Ronnie Coleman, Phil Heath or Lee Haney.
Roberto Cabezas is a specialist in fitness, CrossFit, bodybuilding, training material, nutrition and sports supplementation at Men’s Health Spain. Graduated in Journalism from the Faculty of Information Sciences, in Madrid, he has always liked sports. I played soccer, practiced karate, tennis and now I am passionate about paddle tennis and training in the gym. I firmly believe that leading a healthy life, eating well and exercising daily, is essential for both the body and our mental health. And I encourage you to combat stress with fitness training through exercise routines. One of my hobbies is buying food because I love eating, especially meat, but also fruit and healthy desserts. I am not missing my daily protein shake and to recommend, try the peanut butter with banana, this is one of many of the recommendations that you can find among the nutrition contents in which I write and deal with topics such as creatine, protein whey among others. Professionally, before joining the Hearst Magazines Healthy Unit, I spent almost 20 years at the magazines Teleindiscreta, TP and Supertele, from the same company, where I learned to be a journalist. Before I went through an economic consultant and a women’s website.
