A FITNESS expert has shared a video concluding the workout routine bodybuilding legend Arnold Schwarzenegger followed as he captured the Mr. Olympia title.
Fitness YouTuber Aseel Soueid, who often shares videos of himself completing celebrity workouts and diet plans, said some of Schwarzenegger’s workouts were particularly tough and even made him cry.
His new video shows him trying his hand at Arnold Schwarzenegger’s blueprint training program.
Soueid explains that the program is known to anyone interested in bodybuilding and that it was shared by Schwarzenegger, who explained it step-by-step to Bodybuilding.com
“I’ll actually be crazy enough to try,” Soueid said.
He says that while trying to test out Schwarzenegger’s complete routine, he’s condensing it into one day.
“Because we train every single muscle group,” Soueid said.
“I’m just doing one set.”
The workout consists of 20 exercises and targets all muscle groups including chest, back, shoulders, arms and legs.
Soueid starts with his chest, begins the workout with bench presses, and moves on to dumbbell flies, which are one of Schwarzenegger’s favorite exercises.
“We do so many exercises, it’s a full body workout,” he said after completing his back workout.
“I will literally not be able to move for three weeks once I’ve done three sets of every exercise we’re going through today.”
Soueid then takes up arms and visibly struggles through the sets.
At the end of the video, Soueid talks about Schwarzenegger’s leg exercise and how scared he is of completing it.
“I’m shaking as we speak, I feel like I should unload in the bathroom just because it’s Arnold’s leg workout, not breakfast.”
Souied transfers to a different gym for access to equipment that allows for leg workouts and completes multiple sets.
“I’m starting to feel like I’m going to cry, shit, bleed and throw up all at the same time.”
Arnold Schwarzenegger is one of the main figures in bodybuilding and won the Mr. Olympia title seven times during his career.
He has written books and articles on the subject and remains an incredibly influential figure in the sport.
