The legend had bigger goals than just dominating bodybuilding.

Arnold Schwarzenegger started from humble beginnings with a dream to accomplish: to become the next bodybuilding super star. Not the simplest of goals to tackle, but the Austrian Oak was able to pull it off. Through the years Arnold had eventually grown from up and coming bodybuilder, to the seven time Mr. Olympia champion, to action star, and eventually Governor of California. His goals were loftier than just taking over bodybuilding. One of the legend’s biggest goals was to have a positive effect on the sport of bodybuilding and overall fitness in general. Hear from Arnold himself in this exclusive interview with Generation Iron on the goals he hoped to accomplish during his career.
