Arnold Schwarzenegger Blueprint Trainer Day 42

Previous | Main | Next

You’re a full six weeks into Arnold’s Blueprint, and you’ve definitely earned another day off. Rest up, eat up, and don’t exert yourself any more than necessary. You’ve got only a dozen workouts left!

Last week we took a gander at Arnold’s first commercial, which was nothing more than a tiny cameo in a nondescript early 1970s Chevy spot. While he would never be a well-known commercial actor in the United States, Arnold more than made up for it in Japan, where he unforgettably pitched everything from coffee to Cup-O-Noodles to beer during his Mr. Freeze days in the 1990s. Luckily, the Internet has preserved the results.

Make sure to watch this entire clip. It only gets better as it continues.

Arnold Schwarzenegger Blueprint Trainer Day 39

Previous | Main | Next

One of the most famous images of Arnold from the 1970s is of him performing a side chest pose, looking with an uncharacteristically serious, scrutinizing glare at the camera—or at least it seems like he’s looking at the camera. Training partner Ed Corney recalled the real origin of the image in an interview with Bodybuilding.com:

“When Arnold was doing his side chest, they shot that by cutting a hole in the mirror he was looking at and putting a camera behind that hole. So they got him right on.” Corney said. “Arnold would be looking at the mirror as a guide doing his side chest pose and they captured that.”

The bodybuilder gazing at himself in the mirror is a stereotype that other gym-goers love to deride, but Arnold knew the true value of this technique more than anyone. Look again at that image; he isn’t gazing at himself out of vanity.

“For a guy like Arnold, a mirror is a tool for self-criticism,” writes Joe Weider in his autobiography “Brothers of Iron.” “Looking at himself, a serious bodybuilder isn’t admiring. He’s looking for trouble. And he sees trouble, every time.”

You’ve now survived a dozen difficult chest and back days in the Blueprint. Today when you’re done, stop for a moment to take stock of progress you’ve made. Then get back to work.

Arnold Schwarzenegger Blueprint Trainer Day 28

Previous | Main | Next

Congratulations! You’ve reached the end of the first phase of the Blueprint. Enjoy a well-earned rest day. It’s hard to believe you’ve only had three other rest days in the last month, but this is exactly the sort of approach that turned a promising but raw Austrian lifter into a Mr. Universe at age 20, and a repeat winner at age 21. Here’s how he looked when the British press captured the contest in London in 1969:

His biggest leap of faith was yet to come: traveling across the Atlantic to head off against two-time defending Mr. Olympia Sergio Oliva. But in his mind, the final destination was never in doubt. Stay the course!

Arnold Schwarzenegger Blueprint Trainer Day 27

Previous | Main | Next

You’ve worked through seven hard leg days in three-and-a-half short weeks. Today, you’ve earned the opportunity to work up to a one-rep max and see how all your hard work has been paying off in strength.

Serious leg days like this were sacred events in Gold’s Gym, and all joking ceased when the weights got heavy. Here’s how Dick Tyler, a journalist for Weider Publications, recalled such a day in his book “The West Coast Bodybuilding Scene.”

“What made the whole scene a little scary was the almost unearthly quiet that seemed to descend. Everyone was concentrating on what they were doing. This was serious business and there would be no useless rapping that night.

“I looked over at Arnold, who was heavily clothed in a sweatsuit. The stains of sweat began to show under the arms and around the chest. Dave [Draper] slapped more plates on the bar. Now it was his turn. Again and again he went down to the full squat position, only to fight to stand. Arnold leaned forward with each rep and counted them out.

Many a bar bent across the back of the great Oak.

“When it seemed Dave would burst if he made one more effort, the Oak would lean even closer to the Bomber and say, ‘You can do it, Dave. You can do it.’

“Then as if in some kind of hypnotic state, the mighty Draper thighs would ram out another rep. ‘Do another one, Dave,’ said Arnold softly, another rep done.

“Then it was Arnold’s turn and he worked until his thighs looked like they would split his pants. There was no resting between the superset, then both Dave and Arnold started doing sissy squat moves on the hack machine. All that could be heard was the clank of Olympic plates and an occasional yell of encouragement.”

Get serious, get your lifting partner, and get to work!

Every legend has a great story at its start. Arnold’s first-ever serious upper-body workout is just such a story. Here’s how he portrayed it in The Education of a Bodybuilder. He had been doing loads of pull-ups and handstand push-ups with local bodybuilders as a teenager, but the first time he hit the iron in a gym, his body got a lesson it wouldn’t soon forget. He writes:

“I remember the first real workout I had as vividly as if it were last night. I rode my bike to the gym, which was eight miles from the village where I lived. I used barbells, dumbbells and machines. The guys warned me that I’d get sore, but it didn’t seem to be having any effect. I thought I must be beyond that.

“Then, after the workout, I started riding home and fell off my bike. I was so weak I couldn’t make my hands hold on. I had no feeling in my legs: they were noodles. I was numb, my whole body buzzing. I pushed the bike for a while, leaning on it. Half a mile farther, I tried to ride it again, fell off again, and then just pushed it the rest of the way home. This was my first experience with weight training, and I was crazy for it.

Arnold was blessed with great genetics, but when he came to America, it was his work ethic that made him get to the top.

“The next morning I couldn’t even lift my arm to comb my hair. Each time I tried, pain shot through every muscle in my shoulder and arm. I couldn’t hold the comb. I tried to drink coffee and spilled it all over the table. I was helpless.

“‘What’s wrong, Arnold?’ my mother asked. She came over from the stove and peered at me. ‘What is it?’ She bent down to look closer as she mopped up the spilled coffee.

“‘I’m just sore,’ I told her. ‘My muscles are stiff.’

“‘Look at this boy!’ she called out to my father. ‘Look what he’s doing to himself.’ My father came in, doing up his tie. He was always neat, his hair slicked back smooth, his mustache trimmed to a line. He laughed and said I’d limber up. But my mother kept on. ‘Why, Arnold? Why do you want to do it to yourself?’

“I couldn’t be bothered with what my mother felt. Seeing new changes in my body, feeling them, turned me on. It was the first time I’d ever felt every one of my muscles. It was the first time those sensations had registered in my mind, the first time my mind knew my thighs, calves and forearms were more than just limbs.”

This is bodybuilding: The project of awakening a body to its untapped potential. Let yours know it’s time to grow today.

Arnold Schwarzenegger Blueprint Trainer Day 25

Previous | Main | Next

Arnold’s training has been written about for so many years, in so many publications, that it can take on a mythical quality. Simply hearing someone describe how he held the barbell during curls, for instance, can seem like reason enough to do it that way yourself. But Arnold took nothing in his training for granted. He tracked everything, took notes, and knew not only what worked, but when it had worked previously—in what type of workout and order. If you’re not creating a detailed record of your progress in this trainer, then now is the time to start.

Arnold was the best because he recorded every detail of his work. He measured his results so he could compare his numbers and assess his progress.

“Write everything down,” Arnold told Iron Man magazine in 1994. “Unless you take accurate notes about your training and record the results you receive from it, you will have difficulty in determining which training techniques work best on your unique body.”

Your unique body deserves the best. Make sure your success leaves clues.

A Day In Arnold's Life: The Perfect Routine To Build The Perfect Body

Half a lifetime before the bros of “Jersey Shore” began preaching “GTL”—that is, “gym, tan, laundry”—as the signs of a day well-spent, Arnold Schwarzenegger and his Gold’s Gym brethren were using similar principles to take the sport of bodybuilding by storm.

Joe Weider was famously fond of calling bodybuilders “lazy bastards” during these years. But, make no mistake: Arnold’s daily ritual wasn’t some walk on the beach. It took hard work, incredible discipline, and it just happened to be exactly what he loved to do.

In late 2012, Arnold took Bodybuilding.com on a tour of his old stomping grounds and gave us an idea of how he structured the perfect day to build the perfect body.

Early Wake-up:

For most young men, simply having a regimented approach to work, training, and nutrition is a tall enough order. But, doing the dishes and making the bed? Who’s got time for that—especially in the morning? Arnold did. In 1969, he and his new roommate Franco Columbu embraced the project of putting their whole lives in order, starting with their bachelor pad.

“Our place was immaculate,” Arnold writes in his autobiography “Total Recall.” “We vacuumed regularly; the dishes were always done, with nothing piling up; and the bed was always made, military-style. We were both into the discipline of getting up in the morning and straightening up before you leave the house. The more you do it, the more automatic it becomes, and the less effort it takes. Our apartment was always way cleaner than anyone else’s I went to, men or women.”

It’s easy to chalk up this attention to detail as the idiosyncrasies of a fastidious military-trained Austrian, but for Arnold, it was part and parcel of his training. He has always insisted that one of the great virtues of bodybuilding is that “it is a good way of introducing more discipline and control in the rest of your life.”

7 AM:

When preparing for a contest or undertaking an intense training cycle like the type in Bodybuilding.com’s Arnold Blueprint program, Arnold often split his training into two daily sessions. The first almost always took place at an early hour when Gold’s Gym was inhabited by a far less famous clientele.

“When Franco [Columbu] and I got to the gym at 7 a.m. we would frequently see lawyers, accountants, teachers, and others with a full work schedule just finishing their training and hitting the showers before going to their jobs,” Arnold wrote in “The Encyclopedia of Modern Bodybuilding.” “This showed a lot of dedication on their part, but it’s this kind of dedication that yields the best results.”

“In the minds of many gym regulars, Gold’s wasn’t officially open for business until Arnold arrived.”

The discipline these early mornings enforced was only one benefit. Another, Arnold has said, is that his best workouts almost always seemed to take place in the morning. His enthusiasm was infectious, too. In the minds of many gym regulars, Gold’s wasn’t officially open for business until Arnold arrived.

“When he got there, the place lit up. Now it was time to train,” said Ed Corney, one of Arnold’s training partners, in an interview with Bodybuilding.com in 2007. “He brought that with him. You’re upstairs changing into your clothes, and you can’t wait to get out there and right into the mainstream of top training.”

After Sunrise:

Indoor tanning has been around in various forms since the early 20th century; lying on the beach getting cooked liked bacon has been around far longer. But neither option cut it for Arnold, for the simple reason that they were a recipe for what he told us was “a tan that sucked.”

“Sometimes when [people] lie in the sun, they look like they got tanned in the front and tanned in the back, but they’re not tanned around down beneath the arms and everywhere,” Arnold told us on tour. The answer to building a competition-worthy tan was to stroll the approximately half a mile from Gold’s Gym down Ocean Front Walk to Venice’s famed Muscle Beach and train outdoors.

“‘The advantage was that when you did your chin-ups, your presses, your curls, you got the tan everywhere. Then we would run over to the ocean, jump in the waves, get the salt water all over, and again, get tan all around.'”

“It was a little smaller in the days when I worked out,” Arnold said of Muscle Beach, “but the advantage was that when you did your chin-ups, your presses, your curls, you got the tan everywhere. Then we would run over to the ocean, jump in the waves, get the salt water all over, and again, get tan all around.”

Lunch:

Before moving to California, Arnold has said, his approach to nutrition was simply eat big, get big. But once he realized that sheer bulk wasn’t going to be enough to take the step from Mr. Universe to Mr. Olympia, he and Franco became devoted students of diet and nutrition, ingesting multiple small protein-rich meals throughout the day. “Three meals a day is good,” he wrote in “The Encyclopedia,” “[but] four meals a day is better.”

But don’t take this to mean they forgot how to eat for satisfaction. Franco recalled in his book “The Bodybuilder’s Nutrition Book” that the pair always saved extra room for the meal that followed a hard training session. “After leaving the gym, we ate a great lunch with complete enjoyment, knowing that vitamins and minerals are helpful only when the body is stimulated by hard training,” he writes.

Arnold gave an even more vivid description in “Total Recall” of the pair’s visit to the local “smorgasbord” buffets: “The bodybuilder would start with five, six, or seven eggs, after which we go to the next station and eat all the tomatoes and vegetables. Then we would have the steak, and then the fish. Muscle magazines in those days were always warning you that you had to have your amino acids, and that you had to be careful because the amino acids in certain foods weren’t complete. ‘Hey,’ we said, ‘let’s not even think about it; let’s just eat all the proteins. We have egg, the fish, the beef, the turkey, the cheese—let’s have it all!'”

During the Day:

Arnold was never just a bodybuilder. His professional ambitions were always larger, and as soon as he was established in California, he established a string of moneymaking endeavors. As his English improved, he gave seminars at Gold’s and other gyms. He began publishing mail-order booklets on training and posing, initially filling all the orders himself.

“I loved being an American entrepreneur,” he writes in “Total Recall.” “I was super efficient. I took the doors off my bedroom closet to make an alcove and had a friend build shelves and a little fold-down desk. Each booklet had its own numbered niche, and there were bins for incoming mail, checks, envelopes, and outgoing orders.” Many of his peers started similar businesses, but saw them flounder or spark legal issues when they couldn’t follow through with Arnold’s level of dedication.

“‘I loved being an American entrepreneur.'”

He and Franco also famously started their own construction enterprise, billing themselves in local ads as “European bricklayers. Experts in marble and stone.” Some of the walls they and their crew of bodybuilders built still stand, as he showed our film crew. The pair learned as they went and kept their business afloat. When a significant earthquake cracked walls and chimneys around the valley, it gave them all the work they could handle.

With their extra earnings, Arnold and Franco began investing in real estate with great success. By the mid-70s, they were said to be the world’s only two full-time professional bodybuilders, but the label does little to capture the work and risk-taking that allowed them to focus on their real passion.

Evening:

With the day’s work done, it was time to head back to Gold’s for the second half of Arnold’s customary twice-daily split. Sometimes this just meant abs and calves, and sometimes, it was those plus additional arm and hamstring detail work. But occasionally, as when he was training for the 1975 Mr. Olympia featured in the film “Pumping Iron,” the afternoon workout was a total assault on the big muscles just like the morning workout had been.

His increasing fondness for brutal evening work, Arnold told us, was part of why he switched training partners that year. “Franco would just do his 5 sets of squats and 5 sets of leg extensions, and he would just walk out because he had naturally big thighs, but I had to do my 25 sets,” Arnold explained. “Franco would leave three-quarters of the way through the workout. Sometimes in the evening, he wouldn’t come. So I said to myself, well, I’ve got to go, since I’ve only got 8 or 9 weeks left to and to train for the Olympia, I’ve got to get someone who’s as hungry as I am. And that was why I switched over during that period to Ed Corney.”

“‘Franco would do his 5 sets of squats and 5 sets of leg extensions, and he would just walk out because he had naturally big thighs, but I had to do my 25 sets.'”

Arnold’s dedication to his daily grind paid off that year in his sixth Mr. Olympia title, allowing him to retire—albeit temporarily—from the sport at the top of his game. The following year, Franco would leap to fill the void left by Arnold and capture his first overall Mr. Olympia title.

Arnold Schwarzenegger Blueprint Trainer Day 24

Previous | Main | Next

Saturday’s cheat meal is still four long workouts away. Are you keeping it clean in the meantime? Despite having a legendary appetite, Arnold also knew that being the best in required world-class dietary discipline. Here’s how his training partner Ed Corney remembers eating with him:

“He wanted to get better and I wanted to get better, so we trained, we dieted. The diet was really funny. We would order a hamburger steak and get the napkins and pat the top to get the grease off. At home we would have tuna with eggs whites mashed up. No other food in the house, because then you can’t get to it,” Corney told Bodybuilding.com in 2007.

Ed Corney hands Arnold some much-needed protein. The lifting partners were careful about what foods they kept in their home.

Read that again and ask yourself: What’s in your house? You know you need fuel to grow, and plenty of it. But is there a stash of junk food calling to you from another room? If so, maybe it’s time to do some spring cleaning.

  • Arnold performed a max-effort squat when he really wanted to push the limits. Judge how you’re feeling and if things are going well, work up to a max-effort squat every couple weeks.

    Technique Max Effort
    Pick one exercise and see what you can do for a 1-rep max. To get there, work up to the weight with the following rep pyramid, taking ample rest between each set: 20, 15, 10, 8, 5, 3, 1, 1, 1-rep max.

  • Barbell Squat Barbell Squat Barbell Squat
    5 sets of 8-12 reps
  • Stiff-Legged Barbell Deadlift Stiff-Legged Barbell Deadlift Stiff-Legged Barbell Deadlift

Arnold Schwarzenegger Blueprint Trainer Day 19

Previous | Main | Next

You’ve got another difficult arms workout in Arnold’s 1-10 method today, in addition to shoulders, forearms, and abs. At the end, your biceps should feel like they’re about to bust out of your skin. This is a good thing! Maybe it makes you think of Arnold’s famous monologue about the pump from the movie “Pumping Iron,” but what he said in the book of the same name is just as memorable. He said:

Arnold spent his career chasing after the pump, and every other bodybuilder spent their careers chasing after him.

“Bodybuilding should be fun because you get to feeling of satisfaction which is very hard to explain. A bodybuilder knows that when he pumps of his muscle it means growth. The muscles grow. So therefore he knows when he pumps up well, that is progress. And that satisfies him because he feels the progress in his body. Therefore the pump feels good. It’s actually the best feeling a bodybuilder can have. It’s difficult thing to explain. Sometimes we joke around and we get a good pump and we say you have to admit that a good pump is better than coming. Somebody off the street wouldn’t understand that, but sometimes a pump is the best feeling you can have.”

You’re not just somebody off the street. You get it. Now go get it.

  • Follow rep ranges below unless listed otherwise.
    30 reps is a warm-up set.

    Technique 1-10 Method:
    After 1-2 warm-up sets, choose a weight that you’re only able to lift for 1 rep. After you perform that 1 rep, take just enough weight off to perform 2 reps. From there, do the same for 3 reps and 4 reps, going all the way up to 10 reps. This is brutal because you take no rest between sets. The only rest you get is when you’re unloading the weights. I loved this technique, and it’s a total shock to the muscle.
