I heard about arnold
that he had calf implants.I don't believe it,they look as real as can be.I have heard that all muscle implants look a little off,just like breast implants compared to the real thing.Thats what i heard today,so obvisouly they would of been further behind in his younger days.Anyone else hear this before?

Read rules. You cannot hate on Arnold here.
I don't think they even had breast implants in the 70's so they wouldn't have calf implants without his legs looking butchered.

I'm not harting whatsoever,i defended him.Theirs a big guy at my gym that just started working his legs.I asked if he has started hitting his calves.....long story short i said well arnold had horrible calves,but made them great by hitting them 6 times a week.He said"well arnold had implants"I said i never heard that,and here we are.Like i said.they look as real as can be.

I was kidding. A "no Arnold hating" rule would be pretty ridiculous. The dudes full of sh!t, and if he's a big dude that's never trained legs before that should tell you something.

Cool. Sometimes it's hard to tell online.
I started a thread a few years ago asking if Dorian could have had calf implants based on a certain picture. The pic looked crazy, but people pretty much thought I was on crack.
I don't really like the type that uses steroids before they have plateau'ed and come close to their genetic potential. People also underestimate their potential as well IMO. So to me the dude sounds like a d-bag, but some of them are gifted as well.

I've heard this rumor too. It stemmed from his large increase in calf size over a period of a year. It was a weaker body part and he worked them until them came in line. If he had calf implants, they would have been incredibly visible when he cut down his bodyfat, and you wouldn't have seen the incredible vascularity on his calves. So tell the big boy at the gym that calf implants don't have vascularity, that should settle it.

The thing about his calves is true to the best of my knowledge. He turned all his sweat pants into shorts, so he couldnt ignore them anymore.
I heard he started putting crazy amounts of weight on his calf raises, like 500 pounds, to bring them up to par.

I started wearing shorts for the first time in about 8 years to give me more motivation.I read about Arnold doing this afterwards,I thought that was cool.I was already working my calves regularly before,but thought it was pointless to have big calves when you never see them.Atleast quads can be seen through jeans.It def gives me more motivation now that i and others can see them.It feels great to see them pumped too.

To think that arnold developed his massively awesome body naturally yet had to resort to implants on his calves is silly. If he could get his arms and chest that big, he could develop his calves as well.
cool fact about him rolling his pant legs up

No he probably did not get calf implants. Arnold's legs kinda sucked guys. His upper body was well-developed, but his lower body was not too special.

David Henry, Dennis Wolf, Dexter Jackson, Frank Zane, Serge Nubret, Toney Freeman.
Arnold's main deficiencies were his abs and legs. His delts were so-so.
His abs were close to non-existant and his legs were subpar. His extremely large upper body overwhellemed his lower body. Arnold's chest and bicep peaks were his strongest point.

I have heard the calf implant rumur before but I don't think he did because he couldn't have trained legs at all for maybe two months after surgery, and that definitely would have showed(There's pictures of almost every day of his life after he won his first olympia)

Most people don't know about Brian Buchanan. He was from England. Probably the best shoulder to waist ratio known to bodybuilding. Even better than Will Harris.

I like the pant thing too.He actually cut all the bottoms off so he couldn't hide them.He said many people made fun of him and he hated it,which is why he wore pants and took pics in water.He said this is what turned them from his worst to best bodypart.Then everyone was complimenting and asking questions.
I like Arnold's physique too.His quads and hams could be bigger for my taste,but i bet you anything if he were in his prime today,he would have crazy legs.Prob bigger calves too.
