Who wouldn’t want to have the looks of the famous muscleman; Arnold Schwarzenegger? For sure, most of the guys out there dreamt of building those abs and biceps perfectly. But Arnold’s Mr. Universe’ Body didn’t happened overnight; he committed fulltime in the training to achieve it.
When he was still a bit younger, “Mr. Muscleman” Arnold Schwarzenegger was the envy of most men because of his almost perfect body built. But having a body like his would require determination, discipline and drive for a longer period of time – not a short time goal or program.
Obviously, he worked very, very hard and he never quit at all. Unlike other bodybuilders out there, who thought that they could make their body look like Arnold’s in a short span program. Some people made the mistakes of using other supplements for their muscles or tried some alternatives instead of focusing on their workouts.
Winning the ultimate ‘Mr. Universe’ title is never that easy. He completed his bodybuilding fitness routines for years which required him to go more often to the gym. This is where most bodybuilders failed; thinking that they can do some shortcuts would build them muscles.
You have to program your mind if you really want to succeed. Set the goal ideal to your lifestyle, work and body built. If you set a goal or program, make sure that you monitor the progress; if you are progressing. But if not working as you expected maybe there is some way you could improve.
One of the secrets to Arnold Schwarzenegger’s bodybuilding style is the way he worked out every muscle group. He trained continuously at a very high intensity. He overworked the different muscle groups in his body and regularly shocked his muscles by adding more weight or doing more repetitions while having lesser breaks between sets. He was also doing unfamiliar exercises in no particular order of execution all while doing different intensity techniques.
One of the reasons he was a top choice for the film Terminator was that Arnold had mastered what can be called a robotic technique, like his character in the film. Fixed in his position he would go on to complete his sets, in the same way, every time. The training form was perfect, accurate and highly effective. For starters, he advised performing this with their backs on the wall.
The handgrip is also important. This is one of the mistakes some starters usually commit. It happens when one starts a curling movement with a bent wrist and then curls it up before the intensity hits the biceps. The biceps will not get the needed stress because it is absorbed by the forearm. The Terminator star also included supersets in his training to maximize his time effectively. He did it by compounding the intensity the muscle group received, pushing his body to the limit.
This Arnold Schwarzenegger bodybuilding style may be hard to do especially for first-time bodybuilders, but it is one of the most effective ways to develop specific muscle groups.
