Arnold largely built his career off bodybuilding, something that did not require many educational credits. However, Schwarzenegger realized the importance of a college education and decided to enroll himself. However, he was faced with a setback, as he was not a US citizen and did not have a student visa, which is required to be eligible to apply. He did not let this stop him as he explained, “I wasn’t on a student visa, I could not take a full load. But I saw a loophole that I could take a few classes at three different colleges and get a full load’s worth of credits…”

Schwarzenegger further added, “I was driving between three colleges and didn’t have time for food.” Arnold never disappoints his fans when it comes to imparting his experienced knowledge. He has viewed every setback as a stepping stone to achieve something great. Besides life advice, the actor also imparts fitness advice to his fans. After being a major part of the fitness industry, the former bodybuilder has now come to terms with some exercises that can improve one’s health more clinically than one might think.

I'm Pritha Halder, your everyday spokon fanatic. Spokon is the Japanese term for sports manga and anime. Rather strangely, this was the root from which my love for competitive bodybuilding blossomed.
