Arnold Schwarzenegger Pumping Iron
Arnold Schwarzenegger starred in the film pumping iron when he was at his prime. Arnold was 28 years old when the movie pumping iron was made in 1977.
Pumping iron was directed by George Butler and Robert Fiore and was probably the first bodybuilding movie ever. It highlighted the competitive nature of competing bodybuilders and their training routines in the build up to the Mr Olympia contest. The film shows Arnold Schwarzenegger at his peak condition and shows his arrogance towards the other bodybuilders. He played mind games with them all to unsettle them, and it worked.
The movie feature many other famous bodybuilders of the era including Lou Ferrigno (The Incredible Hulk),Mike Katz, Franco Columbo, Ed Corney, Ken Waller,Serge Nubret, Robbie Robinson and the fantastic Frank Zane.
Frank Zane in my opinion always had the best physique with a perfect balance of muscle mass and body fat levels. Combined with his excellent posing routines he was awesome.
This movie is still an inspiration to many bodybuilders both young and old and probably will be for many years to come.
