In a video from 2015, bodybuilding legends Arnold Schwarzenegger and Lou Ferrigno were seen working out together in a gym. They are very good friends, too! As the video begins, Schwarzenegger can be seen counting Ferrigno’s reps, as he reached 12.

Moving ahead, Ferrigno returned the favor by counting Arnold’s reps of the same exercise. Schwarzenegger did 12 easily and then gets up. Funnily ending the exercise, Schwarzenegger poses, followed by Ferrigno. However, Schwarzenegger looked to be almost as tall as Ferrigno. Ferrigno said, “seven, eight, nine, ten, eleven, twelve good. Yeah, but he’s standing on this!”
