Arnold Schwarzenegger exudes confidence

As bodybuilders tweak their bodies to perfect bicep curls, one can’t imagine the time they spend working on them and preparing for an important event. The Mr. Universe and Mr. Olympia contests are the most prestigious competitions associated with bodybuilders. So an athlete takes his time, ripping his body to perfection before entering the contest. But in by Arnold case, he did the exact opposite.

Working towards his goal at a very young age, Schwarzenegger knew just what the outcome might be, so predictable he went to the legendary House of Pies and tasted their victory. He was accompanied by his longtime friend and fellow trainer, Franco Columbo. The confidence in his abilities is remarkable as he spoke of those glorious times in an interview.

“There were times when Franco and I felt like we were so ready and we were so torn with the others, that we knew we were going to have the competition in our bag. I mean, it’s something that we felt. So we were going like a week before and celebrating that. We’ll go to the House of Pies before we win. We will celebrate” says Arnold.

The level of confidence they displayed put other bodybuilders to shame. As for Columbo, he happens to be in the same timeline as Arnold participated in events. Nevertheless, Columbus won two Mr. Olympia titles in 1976 and 1981. He remained a friend of Arnold’s and was “The Austrian Oak’s” best sparring partner for years to come.

Being at the top of their game is something they dreamed of from a young age. Arnold and Franco both had the same vision and goal when they achieved their ambitions. However, the level of audacity to eat pies before the biggest moment of your life? Now that deserves standing applause. It’s just unfair what Arnold Schwarzenegger did to bodybuilders back then. A living legend!
