Blueprint to Cut

  • Published: 04 March 2015
  • Building your dream body is about more than what you do in the gym. It's about what you do in your mind—how you visualize your success and envision your legacy. Arnold Schwarzenegger pictured himself as a champion bodybuilder, and he built a blueprint to become just that. Whether you want to shred for a competition or lose weight for life, Arnold's Blueprint to Cut will help you succeed.

      I’ve been watching this with subtitles and it’s hilarious as hell. YouTube can’t translate Arnold’s speech, lol!

        Arnold says about having a rest period for too long destroying your overall workout. I try to do supersets with a breath or two / one sip of water before moving on. But usually, my workout is destroyed by just how goddamn busy the gym is.

            Inside the muscle = visualisation. No wonder he killed the competition.

                Sometimes it's easy to forget, due to his crazy acting career, that this man was a professional athlete, and the GOAT in his sport. I mean it's easy to remember he was a bodybuilder, but the sheer amount of knowledge when he talks....the man's nothing short of a scientist. And as others have said, I appreciate the good questions and then letting the man talk.

                    It is his biggest lie when he says "sleep faster" or "sleep less". It is a well known fact that the body has to get enough rest because sleeping burns fat and builds muscle, helps to recover. So don't listen to him when he says that you should not sleep.

                            And that is why, of all the body sculptors, Arnold is the first/only one who got both the sculpt AND the strength.

                              Dear Arnold in my country the former Soviet Union you were and still are the icon for thousands and thousands of boys you kept us off drugs crime and hopelessness. All of us the Soviet Union kids have your poster in the rooms we went to the gym we wanted to be like you we stayed off the streets we exercised. We owe it all to you. Thank you dear Arnold. Be Blessed Be Healthy have all the prosperity in the world. Live a long life please. You deserve all the blessings there are in the world and Beyond. Thank you dear Arnie thank you. Love Boris.

                                      Goddamn, I have so much respect for Arnold as a thinker. He would have made a great scientist if he wanted to go there.
