Default Arnold Schwarzenegger praising Wilt's strength on bs report

I'm not sure whether this has been posted yet,
but I came across this today,

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=bzIu7...ayer_embedded#!

Arnold was praising wilt's strength, do you guys know what type of tricep extension he is talking about? because 120 pounds don't seem too heavy if we can do it with both hands...

Arnold was a body builder, not a power lifter. He used 120lbs with maximum stretch and contraction at each phase of the lift to get maximum pump and muscle growth. Bodybuilders in general don't lift their heaviest on isolation exercises.

Dude that's not double pulley cable those were the single pulley... I used to do 60 pounds or so for like 12-15 reps (70 I would always struggle with form even though I could do almost the same amount of reps but for is more important on isolation) and I was a big dude I could bench press about 325 pounds... so to be doing 150 pounds is unreal.

Arnold is a big dude, but Andre and Wilt make him look like a fly.

No he isn't....Arnold is only 5'10.

I'm 6'2 and was shocked how short he was when I met him in person.

I checked in on Google and there are mixed reports about his height. Some say 6'2. But I call bullsh*t because I was looking down at him.

angle? footwear?

from past experiences on examining heights of different celebrities, I can say arnold is at least 6'1

check out this site and take a look at the arguments and evidence presented

http://www.celebheights.com/s/Arnold...egger-177.html


edit: and even if he is not 6'2 or 6'1, that doesn't make him a smaller person..he is still a massive body builder that has arms triple the size of average joes.

That photo makes the size difference seem greater than it is.

not trying to defend wilt's height here, but in your picture, not only is wilt standing barefooted, but arnold is also standing on the upper part of the slope. so I think your photo is less accurate than the photo posted before.
