he wants to pump you up

This is what Arnold Schwarzenegger finds inspiring

It’s not a toomah.

ARNOLD SCHWARZENEGGER, NOW the governor of California (lest we forget), found something inspiring on the internet yesterday, so he did what anyone else would do.  He put it on Reddit.

What was it, I hear you ask?  It was this.


Clearly his passion for fitness hasn’t diminished since his days as a bodybuilder.

In case you’ve forgotten, Arnie first came to fame via bodybuilding competitions, and a ‘docufiction’ about his efforts in that field was released in 1977.

Look at him there pumping iron, in the film entitled Pumping Iron.
