Muscle-Building Workout and Diet


Why do you want to workout ? What is your goal ? The most important thing is that you have a vision That you have a goal Because without that vision and without that goal again your drifting aroud You never gonna end up anywhere People don’t become successful Just by accident You know I mean, maybe the guy That found gold in California in start of the Gold Rush But don’t count on that That’s one in a lifetime kind of a situation So, you got to really have a specific goal and to me To have that vision that I want to be Mister Universe That I want to be the greatest bodybuilder of all time That was a great vision and that specificly to look like Reg Park And to be apdate that stage, to lift the trophy overhead And to win the championship over, over and over again So that was a great goal You have to have a goal, it doesn’t have to be that specific goal But it has to have some goal This is why I always recommand to people to sit down, take your time and think about it Why dou you want to workout? What is your goal ? And it can be as crazy as it is, I could be : I want to impress girls If that’s your goal so be it but it motivates you It could be that you emulating a certain, you know bodybuilder or a certain footballplay, a certain boxer Whatever it is, have those pictures put all over the wall Like I did when I was a kid. I got pictures of Reg Park and of Sonny Liston, of boxers and of Ali and of powerlifters and weightlifters all over my bedroom, you know, walls So that everyday when I go to sleep, everyday when I wake up I look at that pictures and they motivate me, you need that motivation and therefore you have that kind of Inprint in front of you all the time, you know exactly what you’re chasing People always came up to me : Why are you smiling? You working out 5 hours a day You doing the same as the other guys but the other guys have a sauer face They pissed of to have to do another rep or another set I look forward to, I look forward to another douzen of reps, I look forward to another 500 of leg raise or squat I look forward to another curl until my arms fall of Why? Because I know that every rep that I did and every set that I did And what weight that I lifted, I gain one step closer to turn that vision into reality So I was turned on by that, I was excited, I couldn’t wait to go to the gym Look I remember that when I weighted 245 pounds And Bob Rafelson the director of Stay Hungry said to me that : I’m intrested in having coming for a reading And work on your acting because I want to having you in a movie To start with the Jeff Bridges and Sally Fields. I was delighted about that and I was excited I start pumping on one word and then he said but I don’t want to weight more than 210 pounds He want me to be in a movie but I’m weighting to 45 to 46 As they I’ve just won the Olympia as they say it was 1974 And I was really at my biggest But he demanded that, he said : Look, it’s very simple On the day we start shooting I’m gonna put you on the scale and if you don’t make the 210, you are out Because I have someone else in mind And I worked on it, that visualing myself very cleary as a lean athlete Because it was the only way I could loose that wieght in the office and get interesting in running because until the point of ran 3 miles after training or before training or whatever But now it was 5 miles, 6 miles, 7 miles, 8 miles and i even ran mini marathons In order to loose that weight and I did everything with high reps levels and watching my diet what I eat nor of kind of things But the day before, I remember we won Burmingham-Alabama the day before I was at the YMCA with Bob Rafelson he was swimming and I was working out And I was running. He said : Let’s step on the scale And I stepped on the scale and I weight 209 So it just shows you it is possible if you visualize exactly what you want to look like And it was no room for any kind of like : I can’t get my act together or anything Because there is only a certain amount of time but the key thing again is : Have the clear vision Have the specific goal of what you want to accomplish Because then you never go to gym and say : today I feel down a little bit I don’t know what it is all about I don’t know my life, I’m confused. NO ! I’ll tell you that I was a pefect example of someone that was not confident at all I mean when I was a kid I was like just any other kid I had my hang ups and problems and orders But When I joined the weight lifting club And I won my first little trophy Because I did the best clean jerk And then we went to another meet and I won another little trophy I started that feeling like somebody But the bottom line is everyone can use the same method because i used it in politics I used it in making money, I used it in everything that I’ve done in the movie business When you have one little victory. Little victories add up and that is what give you that ultimately confidence Well, for me the most important thing is to have a deadline So, when I, for instance, had a competition And let’s say the competition was in the middle of Septembre And it was now beginning of summer So there was no more time to screw around So it was the time now to get going on a diet, to get going with the training to not slack off at all because it was a deadline The day of the competition I had to be in the best shape possible And I knew that if I come to the competition and I loose because I did not schedule my training the proper way Or I didn’t have the right frame of mind or I didn’t give everything, literally broke my butt off I would be just so angry so I never wanted to be in that situation This is why it was very important to pick that time and to say this is when I have to be in top shape Then work towards that But it’s not just with the competition I mean there was always the same with the movie business I mean to me it was always a big advantage when I say : Ok, my movie starts on April 1 and I have now 3 months So I have to get really in great shape So you pick those times it could also be that you have no movie, no Mister Olympia, no Mister America No Mister Universe coming up or any of those things But you say to yourself : The summer starts in June I’m gonna go to the beach in June and at that time I want to be in great shape So that creates an urgency, that makes you really start to training hard and taking it serioulsy Because if you don’t have a specific plan then you wander around And you can have reserved many times the best shape of the best player in the world But if you don’t have a specific goal where you want to go and when you want to get there You just drift around and you never get anywhere so this is why this is important to create that urgency And the specific time when you want to be in shape I mean, look, everyone has a problem with time But, the day has 24 hours and we sleep 6 Now, I know that some out there that say :Wowowo I need 8 But I just say : Just sleep little faster Because the bottom line is we have 6 hours of sleep 24 hours available So 18 hours now available to your work, your family, your hobbies And also to learn something new or to do something new Which could easily be that you want to learn a new language or that you wand to read As a US resolution after read a book every week but what you say I’m gonna go to reshape my body So you gonna go and take this hour out of your schedule and say : I’m gonna train an hour every day So this is for most people a huge challenge but it is totally doing what I can tell them Because the kind of things that I did when I came to this country I mean, I went to school I was working at construction, I was working out my 5 hours a day I was taking acting classes from 8 o’clock at night to 12 midnight I was doing all of those things I wanted to make sure that out of the 24 hours of the day that I didn’t waste one single hour Those hours were too precious and I just want to tell people don’t give me the thing I have a difficult time with the time, I don’t have time for this. You have time, you make the time

  1. Im 13 now i started lifting weights september 15th 2018, I never was one of the popular kids and i had a hard time making friends, and one day one kid made fun of me for being skinny and he said a girl could get me in arm wrestling and she did, my self confidence had never been lower. I then started working out a month later, here I am, stronger than my bully and even though how he bullied me I dont want revenge. Keep beliving in yourself and dont take shit from anyone they’re just trying to make you fail. Stay strong and motivated

  2. Arnold, you was the best and charning bodybuilder in the world. Nobody gat so much respect from me that you. You put the bodybuilding to the new level. I see nobody train so hard as U today. Youre one of my man role in my life…

  3. Fuck man we have been losing so many legends as time goes by. Honestly all the new “famous” people of this time don’t compare. Arnold inspired me to keep working out. I’m not looking forward to seeing him pass 😞

  4. 5,816,924 Million People watched this Video. NOT 1% of them actually set some specific goals afterwards, let alone went after them. That's a fact. Don't let the upbeat music fool you. If you can't do what needs to be done, you might as well just watch Beavis and Butthead.

  5. I had 2 major spine surgeries for kyphosis and scoliosis over the last two years just ending last October and ever since I was a little kid I was always a big kid so all of my life or been the fat kid plus I was also a hunch back but after my second surgery I started getting motivated in weight loss and body building…. Since October I've lost 40 pounds just working out at home working my ass off and I will continue to work my ass of because my back stopped me from doing anything and now that it's fixed it's time to get shit together

  6. There is no shortcut, there is only hard work and that's how it need to be done.
    Noone see the hard stuff, most of people see only the finnal results.
    The great power is in the every single day, which bring use 1 step closer to our goals, repeated over and over again.
    Arnold is pure Love and passion!

  7. This is my goal I will accomplish this it is my dream and be successful I will do this I will be what I wanna because I know I can and I will do it.

  8. Sometimes when you work your butt off you get screwed in the worst way and also you almost can't come back from it

  9. Words can’t describe how much this speech gave me motivation in my life. Im going to achieve my dreams, no matter what.

  10. Three years ago my father decided that he would start walking ten miles every day, now we haven’t got a clue where he is !

  11. "It's impossible to climb the ladder of success with your hands in your pockets."..
    Now I'm going to try that

  12. Arnold weighed 260 lbs,his goal was to reduce to 210 pounds.After vigorous exercise ,he scaled up to 209 lbs which is more
    satisfactory than expected.From this video I learned "ALWAYS EXPECT THE UNEXPECTED WHICH IS POSITIVE".We will pray for him
    that he will live longer than expected.This speech is enough to overcome depression.

  15. My goal was to be able to bench 1000kg by my 40th birthday, I am an eighth of the way there, tears have rolled down my cheeks that I am getting there. When I reach my goal I will probably blow my load as my testosterone levels would have been highly elevated by then. If I can do it, then so can you!

  16. 5 hours training + 8 hour in Construction + 6 hour sleep + actin classes + go to School + running 3 miles per day + eat, familytime with more…. But sweet Arnold there you got 30 hours per day and a day has only 24 hours?!!! And not evrybody takes steriods, so they do not repar over 6 hours sleep!

  17. Comedy is a language agreed upon by all the world. This is the new world of peace

  20. 'Cause I took steroids in the first place and had a shitty thick Austrian accent which at the time was considered cool'

    That's all guys

  21. Thank you for the motivation. Because of you and your speeches, I squat more. I build more. And I wish less.

  22. thank you, mister. Thank you so much for your words. You are a legend and you give me strenght every time, i train listening to you and you make me go over what i think i could do. thank for this channel.

  23. This is a video I kept coming back to during my 50lbs fat loss journey. Helped me to keep pushing through. What a legend I need to meet this man once in my life

  24. 9:20 I wanted to make sure that, out of the 24 hours in the day, I don't waste one single hour, because hours are too precious.

  25. Left a reply about this but thought I’d let everyone know. I prefer to listen to these videos rather than music. This one, Dwayne Johnson’s laker speech, any motivational video. I prefer these over music because music is great, and don’t get me wrong, I listen to a lot of it, but music is an escape. Music makes me zone out. These videos remind me why I’m working out and keep me focused. These videos are more
    Powerful to me than music because its so immersive! Music distracts you from the fact you’re working out, these constantly remind you to go harder, never give up when the pain kicks in, and why you’re there in the first place! Which is what I need 💪🏼

  26. Every day watching theirs trains let's me know my train my max is nothing that keep me work hard and train hard every day

  27. My goal is to break the Wisconsin Teen Raw 66kg USAPL record in bench and deadlift on a powerlifting meet August 17, 2019. The record is 253lbs on bench and 467 lbs on deadlift both of which I have already passed but at around 155 lbs. I have to cut weight to make that weight class and hopefully my strength will not suffer. Every training session must be perfect if I want to hit these numbers while losing weight.

  28. You got to look forward to the hardships in life can’t run away from them let them chase you cause if their chasing you their behind you meaning you’ve surpassed them welcome life’s challenges challenge life to make the day hard for you so you can over come and grow

  29. Create the urgency, because without a specific plan there is no sense of it. That was my biggest take away from this video. Without a sense of urgency, you are stuck in defensive procrastination. Procrastinating so you don't get better and risk the chance of change. Thanks for the video.

  30. I'm going to start watching this every day at the gym during my 10 minute warm up on the treadmill. Love it!
