    A coworker sent this to me today and he swears it's Arnold in the right image. I don't buy it. I think it's a photochop. Do you guys agree?

    photoshop. see the shadow of his head on his chest. then look at the shadow of his body on the ground. its off to the right. it should be in front of him to match his head.

    it´s arnold :(

    I admit the shadows being doubtful, however I have seen the whole series of images that this one come from in a magazine, and it is showing arnold and his whole family on a beach somewhere. All the images were taken from different angles and also showed maria and his kids in them. I am sorry to anounce that this is actually arnold. But he has his off seasons too, I think if he wanted he could pump up thoose muscles and get rid of the exess fat in matter of a couple of weeks. He looked fit in T3, but I´ve heard that they needed to make some visual adjustments to make him look as buff as Terminator is supposed to be.

    that pic is really arnold, and has been discussed in depth on other sites. the picture was taken a short month or two after he had heart surgery and was unable to do any type of workout or cardio. remember that about 9 months after his surgery he had to begin filming T3, so he did get back into shape.

    look closely at the legs, those are his legs and resemble the legs from the 70s. look at the shape of the quads. there are other pics of arnold from the beach that day that show the leg shape better...

    Well, if the guy had just had surgery, I don't think it's any big deal. He's awesome. :jumping: :D

    How can a body revert to that after not doing any cardio or lifting? He must have had the worst diet possible. If you have muscle mass and you dont work out but eat right can't you retain that muscle?

    Sure its sad, to see someone as esteemed in weightlifting, and respected as arnold go to pot, but he IS getting old and I suppose it happens easier when you get old. It seems hard to believe those pics are real, espeically when the next page in the tabloid has the 3 headed chicken. (I dont know that it actually does, but they have some riddulous pictures in!) But I suppose it is possible he did look that bad at one point. From what I've seen he seems to be in relatively good shape now. I dont know muscular he is these days, but it has to be better than in that picture! Say it isnt so aah-nold!!

    If it is really him, i blame it on steriods. I remember Frank Zane saying your muscles would last longer if you didn't take steriods. that you shouldn't use a "quick fix". that's my opinion.

    he is born 1947, that's 58, almost 59 years... now you try to maintain your state when you had a surgery at that age. in t3 he didn't look all that bad, so i guess he recovered...
    another fact is that your body-fat percentage rises with your age and one should not expect a 58 year old person to be as ripped as a mid-end 20 year old, especially after a surgery.

    That picture is Arnold, what it is neglecting to mention is that by "now" it means awhile before they even shot Terminator 3. That picture is ooooooold.

    Heart operation was in 1997, he has made 6 films since then, how did he look? Plus being governor.

    He certainly can't keep his body in the same shape of his glory days.

    Try eating a diet with 6000 calories and training 2 times a day. Then quit your workout and continue with the diet for how long that took, you'll see.
    Beside, his an expert in fitness, but even more important his expert on his own body. I've bet he been shaped, unshaped plenty of times before.
