  • [I hope it was still satisfying](https://youtu.be/7nZ1v96-veM?t=1m)

  • Did he ever enter Mr. Olympia and *not* win regardless of who else competing? Or was that Mr. Universe?

    I want to say he only professionally lost once and it was very early in his career. He didn’t know at the time that definition would get him slightly more points than sheer mass at the highest levels of the sport. IIRC, after he found out, he corrected it, and subsequently won the next year…and then went undefeated until his retirement from bodybuilding.

  • A lot of steroids in that pic.

  • Not surprising. Put on by the Weiders and Arnie was their man.

    This is how things work…….
