HISTORY

Arnold’s Life and Times

He was bodybuilding’s first mononym. And we’re still feeling his impact today.

People around the world have their own thoughts when they hear the name Arnold Schwarzenegger. Most may know him as the star of blockbusters like Conan the Barbarian and The Terminator series. Some may think of him solely as the Governor of California and an activist for various causes. People who follow strength sports probably remember him best as a bodybuilding icon and fitness advocate for over five decades.

The truth is, Schwarzenegger is all those things — and you can explore his life in greater detail below.

Men’s Open bodybuilder Hunter Labrada has built a reputation as one of the premier competitors in the world right now. But best of all, he’s also a fountain of information who regularly shares workout advice on social media for fans to try on their own. Now, he’s giving his audience tips on building fuller pecs.

And it turns out we may have been thinking about pec training — and force application — all wrong. Labrada is next-level when it comes to explaining how to get more out of this machine.

On May 11, Labrada published a video to his YouTube channel wherein he demonstrates how to do pec deck flyes with proper form. Check it out below.

If you need any more proof that Jacked is more than just a one-hit wonder, this is it. According to the caption of his post, Jacked weighs a whopping 136.8 kilograms (301.6 pounds) and looks ready to compete with the top names in the division.
