It's called "muscle memory."

Someone who has trained extensively is going to have a much, much easier time getting BACK into shape than someone who was never in shape to begin with. I don't find it surprising at all that Arnold can jump back into shape in his 70s. He certainly knows something about proper training and how to tune his body.

I did not approve of them putting his head on my body. They will be hearing from my lawyers ASAP.

What a wimp. Riding a bike with an electric motor.

Otherwise, looking good. One of the childhood influences our parents had on us kids is that my mom used to say that bodybuilders who stopped lifting weights in their senior years would lose muscle tone and their skin would get all floppy and wrinkly, (paraphrased). That once one started lifting wrights, (and bulking up like Arnold), in their youth, they would have to do it for the rest of their lives. I think that influenced me as a youth to never lift weights.

I have no idea how this guy got so rich and famous but good for him for parlaying average at best acting ability into a fortune.

That kind/amount(?) of muscle is not appealing to me. I like some muscle (my mother sure had a good bicep from wringing out clothes back in the good old days) and my father had muscle, too, from his job as an industrial scale repairman.

But body builders?? No thanks. A man who used to do that when young is having a multitude of problems and has had to have a few surgeries.

So I vote no thanks.

Right, I remember a beach shot revealing that he had quite the flabby midsection. Good to see he's getting back in shape.
