This bodybuilding documentary from 1977 charts a 28 year old Arnold Schwarzenegger's attempt to be hailed Mr Olympia for an incredible sixth time. A big box-office success, PUMPING IRON inspired scores of men (and women) to look at their own bodies and in some way emulate Arnold's incredible physique and the determination and committment it requires to maintain it. The movie also, in no small part, was the spring-board that launched him into a hugely successful career in acting. Also featuring TV's original INCREDIBLE HULK star Lou Ferrigno.

From Gold's Gym in Venice Beach California to the showdown in Pretoria, amateur and professional bodybuilders prepare for the 1975 Mr. Olympia and Mr. Universe contests in this part-scripted, part-documentary film. Five-time champion Arnold Schwarzenegger defends his Mr. Olympia title against Serge Nubret and the shy young deaf Lou Ferrigno, whose father is his coach; the ruthless champ psyches out the young lion. Sardinian Franco Columbu competes in the lightweight class; at home in Italy he solves a tight parking problem by lifting the car into place. Joe Weider is the marketer; Mike Katz and Ken Waller go for the title of Mr. Universe. Bodybuilding and a celebrity-to-be go mainstream


  1. I love the scene when Arnold is playing mind games with Lou and his dad. That is confidence at it's best.

  2. This is really a very helpful article on Chest workouts for men, and I always want to read such knowledgeable articles like this one. Thanks for sharing.
