WAINAO N°53 - THE BODY
WHY NOW? BECAUSE ARNOLD SCHWARZENEGGER IS THE MOST FAMOUS FIGURE IN BODYBUILDING. HE HELPED TREMENDOUSLY THIS SPORT TO BE KNOWN. A LOT OF PEOPLE THINK THAT YOU JUST COME IN THE GYM, LILFT WEIGHTS AND GO HOME. THE DOCUMENTARY “PUMPING IRON” HELPED US A LOT TO UNDERSTAND WHAT WAS REALLY GOING ON FOR THESE ATHLETES. The dedication needed, the sacrifices athletes make, the struggles.. We would have never thought that there was such a great importance of the mental aspect during the competition. Arnold was a master at it.
This duel with LOU ferrigno who will be a star too, due to his role in the Incredible HULK was a must see. Some will argue that bodybuildinig is in a certain way, the first sport in the world. If it is, we got to give a lot of credit to the “Terminator” and “HULK”..
“ That muscle that you can't train with bars, makes the difference, between those who step on the scene thinking they can win...and that guy who already started to thank people !"
“ The man behind THE BODY? It took hours and hours of work, dedication, sacrifices for years to built that BODY. It tells more than anything the MAN could ever say !! ”
