gotta be steroids for Arnold. We have a very old body training book by Arnold and he didn't look that ripply.

I REEEELY like it here, in Kalleephoooorneeea, maybe someday I'll RULE it!

Steroids were not, in fact, illegal in the competitions back then and Arnold fully admits to loading up on them.

An Austrian corporal using a minority to ascend to political power - who'd'a thunk it?

He was so full of bullshi+ back then. Now - Hey Arnold isn't middle aged fun!!!??? (sez this 56 year old)

I loved that weightlifting documentary where he lost Lou Figarignos favorite shirt to screw with Lou's mind before the body building competition.
