‘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.’
