i also wrote something wrong. i wrote schwarzenegger was weak for his weight, but i meant for his size in form of muscle size. i think you could expect more from one of the hugest guys ever.
Hugest guy ever? Hardly.
Schwarzenegger competed at a weight 30-60 pounds less than the typical Mr. Olympia contestant today. And at about 6'2", he would tower over most of them. Phil Heath, the 2012 winner, is 5'9" and Kai Greene (first runner up) is 5'8".
And maybe it's just me, but benching 400 lbs multiple times in a set is pretty impressive - especially if it's done in raw bodybuilding style without any gear. And this from someone committed to volume training. He could have done a lot of damage as a powerlifter if he wanted to.
But he stuck with bodybuilding. A pretty wise choice, it turned out, for him.
