Still going strong.
Bodybuilding can be viewed as an individual endeavor one that many may call extremely selfish. While for the most part that isn’t an insane statement to make, the realities of the situation is that sometimes it takes more than the individual looking to make gains in order to see some quality change. Sometimes it takes the much needed help from others in order to achieve your goals in bodybuilding. There’s a reason that many people have training partners. The idea that someone else is pushing to make gains can give another individual a ton of motivation and drive. That’s exactly what we’ve seen from Arnold Schwarzenegger and Franco Columbu.
Two Golden Era bodybuilders with a major fan following, Arnold Schwarzenegger and Franco Columbu are men who have reached the absolute top of the sport, the Olympia. Both men have won the illustrious title of Mr. Olympia in the past and have proven themselves to be worthy champions. But it’s certainly not something that happened by accident. Arnold and Franco both pushed each other to become Olympia champions. Their friendship wasn’t predicated on who the better man was, but rather how far were they able to push each other in the gym in order to reach that next level.
Arnold Schwarzenegger and Franco Columbu are now household names in the industry and with good reason. To this day the two veteran bodybuilders maintain their friendship and still even lift together. When you find a great training partner you find yourself a friend and even after all these years, Arnold and Franco have remained just that, partners in crime.
Do you have a training partner that pushes you to your limits?
