"Doing more exercise with less intensity,"
Arthur Jones believes, "has all but
destroyed the actual great value
of weight training. Something
must be done . . . and quickly."
The New Bodybuilding for
Old-School Results supplies
MUCH of that "something."

Here's some early photo's of Arnold. I think it's more inspiring to beginners to see what he looked like before he got really big. Who knows it might be possible for you!

Hope these motivate you.

Will post separately as don't know how to attach multiple images.

I think from those photos it's very obvious he ending up getting calf implants down the road.

I agree. Even in the more recent pictures where the rest of his body is shot, he still has them cows.

Nope,

Those calves are real. In the early 80's I used to work calves with Arnold and Reg Park at Joe Golds place in Venice called World Gym.

Set after set with over 600# we'd go one right after another. I used to pray for Tom Platz to show up, because when he was in the rotation it slowed down because we had to adjust the machine for him being about 5' 8".

While my calves grew and certainly got bigger, Arnolds and Parks just blew up.

No implant then, and that was at their largest

So his calves started out relatively small and he made steady/rapid gains between sessions?

I have no idea (and you can't tell from pics) how big his calves were when he started.

Most all young bodybuilders focus on upper body when starting out.

If I remember correctly, Arnold and Reg mentioned (during out calves) that he felt that Zane beat him because he had a more balanced physique and better calves.

He then "specialized" on building his "weak points", including calves.

This was in the late 70's and no one was doing calf implants then.

For what its worth a friend of mine was training at Golds Venice around that time, according to him , rumor had it that Arnold's calf " secret " was direct injection of Winsterol into the calves.

What's your friends name, maybe I know/knew him?

Can't comment on the injections, since I never heard of that happening.

Mike Farley. Mike won a lot of AAU state contests, placed pretty high in the AAU USA and Mr. America.
He also placed in an NPC contest but I am not sure how high. He worked out at Golds in Venice off and on between 76 and 81. Mostly 79,80, 81. If you know where he is let me know , I've been trying to find him. He owes me 50 bucks.
