Arnold Schwarzenegger Biography
For a policeman's son born in a tiny village near Graz, Austria, Arnold Schwarzenegger has done pretty well for himself. In 1968 Arnold Schwarzenegger arrived here in America completely broke and unable to speak English. The most recent estimate of Arnold's net worth today is more than $800 million. On August 6, 2003 Arnold Schwarzenegger announced his candidacy in California's recall election on NBC's “Jay Leno Show.” On the night of October 7 the Austrian-American actor made his victory speech in Los Angeles, introduced by Jay Leno. Although Gray Davis had made fun of Arnold's Austrian accent during the race, Schwarzenegger managed to turn the contest into a two-man race between him and Davis, and to prove that the political scene in California is a horse of a different color (zu Deutsch: Da pfeifft es aus einem anderen Loch).

Ten Minute Fat Burning Routines
Everyone has 10 minutes they can steel through the day. Studies prove several ten minute bouts of exercise throughout the day are equally as beneficial for your health and calorie burning as one longer continuous session. If you spend your day at a desk, take ten minutes out of every 2 hours to get up, get moving and get closer to a body you can be proud of. You will return to your desk refreshed, with more mental clarity and a renewed sense to continue working knowing you are closer to reaching your fitness goals. Giving your metabolism a boost several times through the day, adds up to more fat burning.

Fat Burning Truths
Okay, it’s true that exercising first thing in the morning after an overnight fast burns more fat during the exercise session. But, there’s more to it. Fat is utilized at all times as is protein and carbohydrate. The percentages of each that are used shift depending on our level of fitness, intensity level and diet (including time from the last meal).

Converting to Sumo Deadlifting
I have spent endless hours on technique, style changes, good mornings, Romanian deadlifts, Olympic lifts, high pulls, rack pulls, etc. but with limited success.

A Review of Arnold Schwarzenegger's Diet
Times have changed since Arnold Schwarzenegger ruled the bodybuilding world throughout the '70s. Once upon a time, before we'd been privy to countless "revolutionary" diets and "Hasta la vista" was still associated with trips to Acapulco, Arnold was just a big—no, huge—guy in a fringe sport who occasionally showed up as a guest on late-night television. But an analysis of his diet, considered 'crazy' back in the day, shows that perhaps he and his Speedo-wearing buddies were a few decades ahead of their time

Fat is an amazing tissue. It has ensured survival of our species through two ice ages and never ending drought and famine. A mere pound of fat stores an astounding 3,500 Calories for delayed use at any time in the future. As dormant tissue, there is almost no metabolic cost for keeping it on the body. As a member of the human species we all owe our existence to fat. Even more amazing than fat's capabilities are the number of misconceptions surrounding this specialized body tissue.

Losing Fat, Not Just Weight
Just like you need to take in more calories than you burn if you want to gain weight, you need to burn more calories than you take in if you want to lose it. You can adjust your caloric balance from both ends, of course: by eating fewer calories and by burning more. If you're not burning more calories than you're taking in, you're not losing weight. Period.

Bodybuilding Quotes from Arnold Schwarzenegger
The better you get, the less you run around showing off as a muscle guy. you know, you wear regular shirts-not always trying to show off what you have. you talk less about it. it's like you have a little BMW-you want to race the hell out of this car, because you know it's just going 110. but if you see guys driving a ferrari or a lamborghini, they slide around at 60 on the freeway because they know if they press on that accelerator they are going to go 170. these things are the same in every field.

Fat Metabolism During Exercise
1. People store large amounts of body fat in the form of triglycerides within fat (adipose) tissue as well as within muscle fibers (intramuscular triglycerides). When compared to carbohydrate stored as muscle glycogen, these fat stores are mobilized and oxidized at relatively slow rates during exercise

Arnold Schwarzenegger on Diet
Eating is at the core of bodybuilding principles. Many have asked Arnold what the best way to gain weight is. His reply is usually proper nutrition along with intensive training. Bulking up is a sure way of gaining mass, but by simply keeping fat content low and recording what you consume in a food log, one can gain, according to him, 12 pounds of pure muscles mass each year until they reach their body-size limit.

Arnold Schwarzenegger's training program
It's misleading, really, to mention Arnold's chest and back routines separately; he supersetted the two exclusively for most of his bodybuilding career. (We can, however, focus on the exercises for each bodypart separately, keeping in mind that he paired them up in his routines.)
