‘Arnold Schwarzenegger changed my lifelife when I went to see Conan The Destroyer at the cinema,’ says Mitchell. ‘Without his inspiration I think pretty much all the experiences of my life would have been different, thanks to the pull of the gym and its results on my appearance, my lifestyle and how people react to me. Arnold set a benchmark for movie physiques that will never be matched and any judge who
doesn't have him as their number one choice is missing everything about physical culture of the last 40 years.’ Strong words.

The Governator may not be in his physical prime, but – with Terminator Genisys coming up – he still hits it hard. His advice? ‘Dumbbells are better than barbells for your delts and tris. First, the Arnold press. Start with a weight you can do six times. After six, pick the next weight down. Work down the rack and do at least five sets. No rest, because picking up the lighter weight should be easy. Once you finish that, do lateral raises the same way. When I did this, I couldn't move my arms after, but it works.’
