Unlike others, Arnold Schwarzenegger chose bodybuilding when it is not as remunerative as the other sports. But his passion was in training at the gym. At 20, he became Mr. Universe and earned seven Mr. Olympia titles before retiring from the competitive arena. However, in his late seventies, Schwarzenegger hit his iconic poses only in the bathroom because his body lost all the bodybuilding aura with age.
