Arnold Schwarzenegger Just Shared His Iconic No-Gym Workout Plan

"There are a lot of things we can’t control during this crisis, so we need to focus on what we can control." - by Alex Pierotti

 

Few are more qualified to give workout advice than bodybuilding legend Arnold Schwarzenegger and during these unprecedented times, the iconic lifter is sharing some old-school images of how he got creative at home to maintain his size.

Taking to Instagram, the Terminator star posted photos from his youth, showing off his makeshift gym which includes inverted rows on chairs and calf raises on blocks.

Schwarzenegger went one further, directing fans to a Reddit thread with full details of the workout.

“Even without a gym, we can also control our physical fitness during this pandemic,” he wrote.

“Body weight, or freehand, training is the oldest method in the world. Gladiators and Vikings didn’t have gymnasiums. I started my own fitness journey with chin-ups on a tree branch by a lake in Austria.”
