However, Schwarzenegger has cleared up this myth by giving the example of his idol, Eugen Sandow. Remembering him, he said that it was Sandow who helped popularize strength sports at the beginning of the 20th century. Talking about Sandow, the Predator actor said that he was the strongest man on earth and it was his body that got him famous.

One more thing that he was quite famous for was doing 125 reps, however, the twist was that dumbbells are extremely light weighted. “If little weights make you happy, you’ve got good company! Do whatever you enjoy that makes you train,” he said.
