Arnold Schwarzenegger Workout Routine and Diet Plan: Train like a Face of Bodybuilding and man behind Conan, Mr. Freeze and Terminator. Build a body like Arnold Schwarzenegger with this workout guide that gives you an The pre-contest routine typically consisted of five torturous bi/tri supersets.

The technology that comes out of Grand Prix racing eventually filters down to the family car, and, in the same way, the discoveries made by serious bodybuilders in the gym can be adapted and made use of by those who are using weights to stay trim and healthy.

You may personally have no desire to train for hours a day to become a Mr.

America, but exercise physiologists have shown us how much alike in their physical needs are the athlete and the non-athlete. If you apply the techniques that work for champions, only at a level of intensity that suits your own purposes, you will be able to share in the same process that creates, shapes and firms the human body, melts away unwanted fat, and builds a strong, dependable cardiovascular system.

Weight Training -- What to Expect Most men don't really know what to expect from weight training. For instance, it is common in gyms to find some skinny guy just starting training who assures everybody, "I want to get into better condition, but I don't want to get too big.

It takes some eight to twelve years of intense, determined, mind-boggling work to produce a Mr. Olympia physique, and that's only if you have the right genetic potential in the first place.


After all, you wouldn't expect necessarily to be able to run a sub-four-minute mile just by practicing a lot. You have to have the talent for it. But that doesn't mean there is no benefit from weight training for the average man. Quite the contrary.

For all but a few there is a definite increase in strength and muscular size along with an improvement in shape and contour of the muscles. The body gets firmer as muscle fibers become more dense and fat is burned off. The body becomes strong, hard and lean instead of weak, soft and fat. Some people will change a lot, and others somewhat less. But even seemingly small changes can make a dramatic change in your physique.

An inch or two extra around the chest coupled with a loss of a couple of inches around the middle will completely transform how you look. You can never step outside your natural somatotype -- the actual structure of your body as determined by your genes -- but you can accomplish a great deal within those limits. It is difficult to increase muscle mass by more than 5 pounds a year.

If you have already had extra mass at one time, it is a lot easier to get it back than it is to create it in the first place. A really talented athlete might be able to build 10 pounds of muscle mass a year, but that is a lot. However, if 5 pounds a year doesn't sound like much, think of it this way: 5 pounds a year is 25 pounds in 5 years. That means a pound man could expect to weigh pounds five years from now with hard training and without gaining any fat.

But, remember, even if you don't really want to get any bigger, all you are doing is increasing your strength to its natural optimum and letting the muscles assume whatever mass is natural to them.

A certain amount of mass comes with the territory. The chances of its getting out of hand are pretty remote. And there are a lot of bodybuilders who were never able to develop themselves quite enough who can testify to that! Meanwhile, as your body improves a psychological benefit comes along with it. You feel better because your training gives you more energy. You feel better about yourself as well, and have greater self-confidence.

This affects how you act, and how people treat you. You look better, which makes you feel better. And when you feel better, you naturally end up looking better. It's kind of a non-vicious circle, and it works.

On the Other Hand In my experience, only a handful of people out of any group get interested enough in training to want to go into it more seriously. However, you might be one of that handful. If you are -- and you may be and just not know it yet -- let me assure you that the exercise programs outlined in this book are fundamental to bodybuilding as well as weight training for conditioning, and that nothing you learn here will be wasted.

In another section, for those who are interested, I will deal in more detail with the differences between conditioning workouts and competition-oriented bodybuilding training. Actually, you might be surprised at how little difference there really is.

We are looking basically at a difference of degree, levels of intensity and a reordering of priorities. But as the journey of a thousand miles starts with a single step, no matter what you are training for or how far you intend to go, building and shaping your body starts with that first time you pick up a dumbbell or barbell and demand of your muscles that they adapt to working against greater resistance than they are accustomed to.

The Uniqueness of Weight Training If I seem to be saying that of all the types of exercise and physical fitness systems weight training is the best, it's because I think it is.

Resistance training is the only way to build up the body, and progressive resistance training is the only way to insure that this progress continues. It is highly efficient, since you end up doing the most you can during any workout, and thus get the maximum benefit in the least possible time.

It is totally individualized training, since your own development acts as a feedback system to regulate the pace of your training. If you get 5 pounds stronger, you add that much weight. If you progress 10 pounds' worth, that's how much resistance you add to keep your muscles working to their utmost.

Weight training can also be used to promote flexibility. Throughout the program I will be stressing that movements should be done using the widest range of motion possible.

At full contraction, you are stretching the opposing muscle group and at full extension you are stretching the muscles that are being trained in the exercise.

Combining stretching with strength training is the key to developing a really strong, supple body possessing the most aesthetic lines possible. Finally, weight training can promote cardiovascular fitness. Obviously, if you lift a heavy weight one or two times, you hardly accelerate your body's need for oxygen, and so the heart and lungs don't get a workout. However, if you lift a weight 8 to 10 times, then go on and lift another the same number of times, then another and so on -- after a few minutes of this continuous training, you will begin to demand a great deal from your cardiovascular system.

In this way -- and this is the kind of exercise program I have designed for you -- you combine aerobic training with your strength and flexibility training. Three-in-one training, that's what you get when you really know how to use weights.

And there isn't another training system that can make the same boast. Weight Training for Health "About the turn of the century," my friend Dr. Lawrence Golding of the University of Nevada at Las Vegas tells me, "physical educators were telling us that exercise is good for health. But then somebody asked the question, 'Why? So they set out to demonstrate this idea that seemed so obvious. That was the birth of what we now know as exercise physiology and sports medicine.

There are a number of possible causes of back problems -- Evolution, which hasn't quite caught up in this area, has given us a back more appropriate to creatures going on all fours -- but one of the most common is simply the lack of tone in the back muscles.

When the muscles in this area are strong, conditioned and flexible, they do a much better job of supporting the vertebrae and keeping them in their proper place and thus eliminating a number of low back complications.

Some headaches, perhaps a great proportion, are due to stress. Tension accumulates in the neck and shoulders, blood vessels are constricted. Eventually, pain results. In quite a number of cases, the physical release of exercise can help to alleviate this build-up of stress and do a lot to prevent tension-related headaches.

There are a number of forms of heart disease, and many seem to be genetically induced or related to other variables difficult to control.

But there is a lot of evidence that exercise, with its effect on the heart and circulatory system, can lower the risk of cardiac problems. There is nothing more annoying than reaching up to the top shelf in the kitchen, or going out to the back yard to throw a ball around, and suddenly finding yourself suffering the pain of a strain, sprain or muscle pull.

Many of these injuries, however minor, come about simply because the body has been allowed to degenerate somewhat from lack of use. When you are in better condition, when the muscles are firm and strong, the joints, ligaments and tendons flexible, there is much less chance that you will incur this type of injury.

Of the many possible causes of insomnia, one, I believe, is living the kind of life where you build up tension through mental effort all day long, but get no physical release through a comparable effort of the body. Man was not meant to just sit around and think and worry. Exercise has a definite effect on the human psychology and can often help solve or reduce a number of mind-related problems. It is almost always true that fat people exercise less than thin ones do.

Exercise not only burns up more calories in the body, but it seems to have some sort of effect on the appetite-regulation mechanism, an effect that has been observed but never explained. But the simple fact is that exercise is very helpful in controlling weight. Weight Training and High Blood Pressure Many people have reservations about training with weights because they have been told it causes high blood pressure.

A look at human physiology should be enough to disprove this once and for all. To start with, just what is "blood pressure? It takes pressure to make this fluid flow, just as it does to make water flow out of the tap in your kitchen.

Our blood pressure is a measure of this pressure. The heart is a pulsating pump, so we have two blood pressures -- the systolic when it is pumping, and the diastolic when it is not. Whenever you exercise, your heart beats faster and the pressure goes up.

If it doesn't you are in trouble. If you have been leading a sedentary life and you go out and suddenly try to shovel three feet of snow off your driveway, when your blood pressure suddenly shoots up it could be disastrous. But exercise and conditioning keep the heart and arteries in shape to deal with the increased pressure.

The heavier pulsations of blood shooting through the arteries during exercise actually massage their walls and keep them flexible -- helping to prevent hardening of the arteries. If you already have high blood pressure, obviously you don't want to put sudden strains on the system.

Your doctor will no doubt prescribe some mild, rhythmic exercise as part of your therapy. In that case, stressful weight training would not be a good idea. But in the absence of such symptoms, moderate amounts of weight training, geared progressively to your level of conditioning, will result in only the normal elevation of pressure that comes with any athletic endeavor. And you get a fringe benefit. Since exercise strengthens the heart and increases its pumping efficiency, as well as keeping the arteries flexible, you will generally find that the conditioned body has a lower blood pressure at rest than the out-of-shape body.

Weight Training and Rehabilitation Paradoxically, although weight training is designed to put heavy stresses on the muscles of the body, it is being used increasingly to rebuild and rehabilitate injuries. There are several reasons for this.

Thus a recovering joint or limb can be exercised to promote strength and flexibility without putting any more stress on the area than it can take. Thus you can work around an injury and train strong areas hard, weak areas lightly.

Injuries to the knee, the elbow or a severe muscle tear all require different therapies, and there are such a variety of possible weight training movements that an orthopedist or physiotherapist has plenty to choose from in those cases where resistance training is indicated as a part of the therapy.

The longer we live, the more gravity pulls on our bodies, causing the spine to compress and the muscles to sag. We burn fewer calories as we get older, so we tend to put on fat, and this puts more of a strain on the system. Older people are generally more sedentary than younger ones, and this results in poor cardiovascular conditioning and muscular atrophy.

But a lot of what we think of as "aging" has nothing to do with age itself -- it is merely deterioration. When we say somebody "looks" thirty, forty, or fifty, we are merely saying that this person looks the way we expect somebody of that age to look. But if you take a look at some older bodybuilders, you will not find any double chins, sagging jowls and pectorals or spreading paunch. Those who have kept up their training -- like Bill Pearl or Ed Corney, for example -- simply don't fit any of our preconceptions.

It is difficult for anyone to judge just how old they are. Weight training slows or even reverses some of the most insidious effects of age.

And it is better at this than any other form of exercise. I had a physical recently and my doctor was amazed at my condition.

He told me that I was in as good or better health than I was ten years ago. And all because I have kept up my training. Judging on the basis of blood pressure, cholesterol level, flexibility and heart rate, I have actually gotten physiologically younger during the past ten years instead of older.

At times, this book is a little dated. There is always new studies and scientific breakthroughs that change the way we look at ourselves. A bench press is a bench press. I was told not to get this book because it was date, yet here I am reading this find most of the information still useful for basics. Most of this book is dedicated to bodybuilding more than any other weightlifting sport.

For what Arnold says, there is a lot of dedication and attitude put into just showing off your aesthetic body.

For what I got out of this, most of them seem like friends and workout partners. They have chemistry and they seem to compete as if they were old friend playing chess. Overall, this book was exactly what I need. If only I read this in college when I started lifting weights.

However, I feel more focused after reading this book. I care more about science than I use too and I actually want to keep better track of my measurements now.The most important thing you can do for yourself as a person, is to ensure that your body can stand the trial of a long lifespan.

But it is also becoming clear that a lot of human problems from auto accidents to divorces, and many common emotional problems like depression, are made much worse by the build-up of stress accompanied by too little physical activity. Appreciate this book and some of the insights about lifting and training. They have chemistry and they seem to compete as if they were old friend playing chess.

What counts is really believing in yourself and what you want, and I became a master of this. However, I feel more focused after reading this book.
