  Arnold Schwarzenegger Shares His Views On Anabolic Steroids

@Arnold Schwarzenegger, the former governor of California and the Austrian-born former actor, has no fears or ashamed of using anabolic steroids during his years as a champion body builder.  In fact, we have speculated in the past about what Arnold Schwarzenegger cycles used.

Schwarzenegger had remarked in the past that he has no regrets about using performance enhancing drugs as he used them under the supervision of a doctor and steroids were very much legal at that time. The former seven-time Mr. Olympia however said he would not encourage use of steroids as that will send a wrong message to children but added that he has no problems with sportsmen making use of nutritional supplements and other legal substances for improving their performance.

Born on July 30, 1947 as Arnold Alois Schwarzenegger, the Austrian and American former professional bodybuilder began weight training at the age of 15 and won the Mr. Universe title at age 20 and went on to win the Mr. Olympia contest seven times. Nicknamed the “Austrian Oak” and the “Styrian Oak” in his bodybuilding days, Arnold Schwarzenegger chose bodybuilding over football as a career at the age of 14 and won the Junior Mr. Europe contest while serving in the Austrian Army in 1965.

His first attempt to Mr. Olympia failed when he lost to three-time champion Sergio Oliva in 1969 but won the competition in 1970 to become the youngest ever Mr. Olympia at the age of 23. At the age of 23, the bodybuilder captured his first Mr. Olympia title in New York in 1970. He played the role of Hercules in 1970′s Hercules in New York and was followed by director Robert Altman’s The Long Goodbye (1973) and Stay Hungry (1976) but his rise was primarily attributed to his profile in the bodybuilding film Pumping Iron (1977). In addition to this, Schwarzenegger appeared in the sword-and-sorcery epic Conan the Barbarian in 1982 that was followed by a sequel, Conan the Destroyer in 1984 and then made a huge impact with director James Cameron’s science fiction thriller film The Terminator.

His autobiography/weight-training guide Arnold: The Education of a Bodybuilder was published in 1977 and became an instant hit. In 1977, Schwarzenegger admitted to using anabolic steroids which were legal at that time and said he used the performance enhancing drugs to maintain muscle size while on a strict diet. He added that his use of steroids was for muscle maintenance when cutting up and not for muscle growth.

Schwarzenegger’s personal records include Clean & press – 264 lb (120 kg), Squat – 215 kg (470 lb), Deadlift – 310 kg (680 lb), Clean & jerk – 298 lb (135 kg), Snatch – 243 lb (110 kg), and Bench press – 200 kg (440 lb).

Legacy of Schwarzenegger is commemorated in the Arnold Classic annual bodybuilding competition and he is considered as one of the most important figures in the history of body building. Arnold has presided over many contests and awards shows besides being a prominent face in the bodybuilding sport long after retiring.

Bad message suggested by steroidsThe former bodybuilding champion and the present governor of California, Arnold Schwarzenegger, recently surprised many by saying that superstar athletes should portray themselves as perfect role models and athletes making use of steroids send a wrong message for the young children.

Young kids can get inspired by no use of drugs and alcohol by the “role models”, Schwarzenegger added.

Schwarzenegger also added that young children should come out clean and sports should be without drugs.

  Pumping Iron by Arnold Schwarzenegger

pumping-iron-arnold-schwarzeneggerBy far the best bodybuilding movie EVER made was Pumping Iron by Arnold Schwarzenegger, he made bodybuilding fun and as close to mainstream as it could ever get. Unfortunately, these days, the Ronnie Coleman ‘ s and Jay Cutler ‘s of the sport are making bodybuilding a sideshow joke around the world. Don’t be surprised if Pro Bodybuilding itself dies off completely by the year 2020. Already, the people who go to the Mr. Olympia are either related to the posers, or just some bodybuilder jokers. The attendance is a joke in bodybuilding events all around. And, it has NOTHING to do with anabolic steroids OR human growth hormone (HGH), but all to do with the direction of the sport. If you look at the NFL, there are a ton of steroids and HGH there, but it’s a hugely popular sport. The truth is that the judging in Pro Bodybuilding has become somewhat of a joke lately, and the most nasty looking bodybuilder wins. If you can come on stage at 1000lbs. at 2% bodyfat, you’d take the Mr. Olympia! it’s a joke all around. To save bodybuilding, Mr. Olympia should be split into 2 weight classes, under 210 and over 210lbs., and the judging in this and all other bodybuilding events should be based on symmetry, leanness and shape. The beautiful sculpture that is the human body, not the nasty ass bloated, bulky mofos who step on stage now.
